Inside Bitcoins, Mediabistro’s bitcoin-focused conference that debuted last summer in NYC, is headed to Las Vegas after receiving tremendous interest and positive feedback following the first event.
Taking place in the MGM Grand Las Vegas from December 10-11th, the conference will explore the current success and buzz surrounding the popular cryptocurrency. At the event, attendees will hear from experts in the bitcoin industry who will discuss the role bitcoins play in the current economy.
The first day of the conference will focus on topics including how to win at the bitcoin exchange ecosystem, creating and funding the next 100 great bitcoin companies, emerging issues in regulatory compliance, and the potential of bitcoin data analysis. Day one will also feature a keynote address by Tradehill founder, Jered Kenna, titled “A State of the Union for Bitcoin.”
Day two promises to offer just as much vital bitcoin information with sessions revolving around themes including Bitcoins in China, the future of free market money, freedom of speech and transaction, bitcoin and the music industry, and how trust and transparency can be brought to the market.
Inside Bitcoins was able to secure an impressive roster of speakers, including Rob Banagale, CEO and co-founder of Gliph; Steve Beauregard, CEO and Founder of GoCoin.com; Robert Cho, Vice President of SecondMarket; Bobby Lee, CEO and Co-Founder of BTC China; Adam B.
