The month of November comes packed with a long list of exciting and star-studded Bitcoin and Blockchain conferences happening all over the globe. The choice is really hard, and this selection of Top-5 happenings provided by CryptoEvents should come in handy.
BitBrum – November 3, Birmingham, UK
BitBrum is a not for profit, community inspired, grass-roots organised event. According to the organisers, they want to “inform people about the technological, economic and societal impact of this nascent space, equipping them with the knowledge to avoid the scams and the tools and confidence to innovate”.
The second edition of BitBrum (the first one took place in 2017) features Rhian Lewis, Software Engineer and co-host of London Bitcoin Women; Tatiana Moroz, singer and songwriter, Bitcoin activist and Host of The Tatiana Show; Greg Walker, Founder of LearnMeABitcoin; Ben Arc (@BTCSocialist), Lightning Network Guru; Max Hillebrand, Open Source Entrepreneur, and Matt Baldock, founder of Portsmouth Crypto among others.
Also, obviously inspired by The Peaky Blinders, this time round Birmingham will be visited by Thomas Hunt aka Mad Bitcoins along with the World Crypto Network #MadTourV crew. With Thomas in the driver’s seat you can bet that BitBrum will be a Blinder!
