In addition to showcasing the world’s most important Bitcoin companies and leaders of today, Bitcoin 2022 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 at the conference on April 6.
If you are interested in being considered for a slot on stage, we encourage you to apply here for Pitch Day at Bitcoin 2022! 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.

"Sazmining received tremendous value from participating in the Bitcoin 2021 Pitch Competition. The Organizers curated an incredible cohort of the industry’s top companies from Seed to Series B. Pitch Day gave Sazmining the perfect opportunity to share our vision with notorious judges and investors - huge thanks to the Bitcoin 2021 Team for a job well done!”
– Will Szamosszegi, Sazmining
“Bitcoin 2021 was a great way to connect with the Bitcoin community. We were able to meet with new and existing customers, partners, investors and friends. The pitch competition was especially valuable to present our business to investors that deploy capital into Bitcoin startups. We secured funding from investors at the pitch competition.”
– Ken Kruger, Moon
"It’s hard to find people who are like minded and as fast paced as I am... and Bitcoin 2021 team sure knows how to pull these people in. I met so many great people while I was at Bitcoin 2021. It made me feel comfortable and really pushed me to be around such like minded, driven and motivated people.”
– Burak Keceli, Finalist, Bitmatrix
“We thoroughly enjoyed the Bitcoin 2021 conference and highly recommend it. Both the experience of competing as a finalist at Pitch Day, as the only Miami-based startup selected as well as sponsoring a booth, exceeded our expectations. In fact, we have generated nearly $500,000 in revenues from new clients we met at the conference to date!”
– Rogelio Caceres, Citizens of Bitcoin
“BTC21 provided a great forum to introduce our company to investors that understand Bitcoin. The production team was pleasure to work with and assembled a great panel of judges. It was a privilege to participate in this event, I look forward to what the BTC21 team has in store for future conferences. I can't wait to attend BTC22.”
– Justin Hilton, Shock Network, Inc.
“Bitcoin 2021's pitch day was a great acknowledgement of what we've been seeing for some time now at Trammell Venture Partners: an accelerating energy of founders thinking about the Bitcoin protocol stack as the place to build. I think the inaugural pitch day at such a key Bitcoin conference sends a great signal to the market that investors are getting serious about Bitcoin-native technologies and the founders building these companies. I fully expect this to become a recurring event and look forward to participating again!”
– Christopher Calicott (Judge)
