The graveyard of companies that became overextended, overleveraged or outright fraudulent over the past cycle is huge. There are massive gaps in the products and services those companies created, and massive opportunities to build new products and services with the core tenets of Bitcoin as the focus.We need to examine first, what happened? What were the mistakes? What should the market demand of companies in this space in terms of transparency and best practices?
The Bitcoin 2023 conference will be our first chance to come together as a community and drive the conversation forward to reimagine what a financial system with Bitcoin at its center looks like.
The DCG Empire is crumbling. What’s at stake is the largest single holding of Bitcoin in the world: The GBTC Trust. Its fate must be decided.
We’re bringing together the world’s foremost experts to discuss how to bust the trust and make the more than 850,000 shareholders whole on their claims to the underlying bitcoin. We’ll hear from industry leading service providers outlining their alternative visions for the trust. We’ll break down “The Widowmaker” trade and take an in depth look at GBTC’s proximity to one of the greatest scandals of our industry. Additionally, in partnership with "Redeem GBTC," there will be a shareholders' meetup on-site at Bitcoin 2023.
In addition to showcasing the world’s most important Bitcoin companies and leaders of today, Bitcoin 2023 is also a platform for the next generation of Bitcoin startups to meet, build and get in front of the community. In support of the upcoming generation of builders, we will be giving a platform for early-stage teams to put their ideas and products to the test in a pitch day format.
Parameters for participants are open and flexible, so feel free to apply whether you are an individual with an idea, a company raising a Series B round, or somewhere in between.
Access to Industry Day is only available to Industry Pass and Whale Pass holders - General Admission is not permitted.
