There will be a “Bitcoin 2021” live stream on YouTube, here ‘ the first day Link, and here is the second. We at Bitcoinist have already given you a practical guide full of rumors for the event, and now we’re giving you all the new developments and announcements. But let’s first remember how we introduced the topic:
For the first few days of June 4th and 5th, to be precise, Miami will experience history. Not only is the Bitcoin 2021 conference returning with a vengeance after being canceled in 2020, it is also one of the first massive post-COVID events the world will see. All eyes are on her. Plus, it comes in the middle of an interrupted bull run where Bitcoin is on everyone’s lips for one reason or another.
In the past few weeks, the mood in the Bitcoin community has shifted. There is no denying that. However, for whales, plebs, and veterans of the field, this is only part of the course. The recent crypto crash won’t stop them from collecting and exploring the latest ideas and developments from the Bitcoin community. The “Bitcoin 2021” conference starts in less than 10 days.

Promises and quotes on Bitcoin 2021 presentations
The organizers, Bitcoin Magazine, interviewed Steve Lee by Square Crypto. Towards the end of the second day he will have a fireplace chat with Aaron van Werdenum. About this Lee said:
Lee will share more thoughts on the network’s present and future at the upcoming Bitcoin 2021 event. When asked which critical discussions should take place there, he gave a simple and direct answer that demonstrated a decidedly maximalist perspective.
“Why proof of work for decentralized money is essential,” he said. “There’s just no substitute.”
The magazine too interviewed Senator Cynthia Lummiswho will speak to Representative Warren Davidson about Bringing Bitcoin Innovation Home to America. Regarding the content of this conversation, she said:
“Warren and I worked together in the US house,” said Lummis. “The congressional calendar is very busy and I look forward to a long overdue and uninterrupted conversation with him about how we can work together to bring the US financial system into the 21st century.”
