Miami Hosted The First World Conference On Cryptocurrency

by Arielle Biscayart 06/11/2021

Are words like Dapps, Smart Contracts, Defi, NFTs, Tokens part of a language mostly used by a "super cool" tribe who can fly over any geographical and virtual boundaries ?

When I attended a few presentations as part of the Bitcoin 2021 conference, taking place early June at the Mana Wynwood Convention Center in Miami, I had to ask myself these questions. The content of the presentations was clearly not for amateurs and you could easily feel " not so cool " if you had no idea what guest speakers were talking about.

Miami can be proud of having hosted the first and largest cryptocurrency conference in the world a few days ago, drawing digital currency and Blockchain lovers and players from all over the country.

This five day series of conferences, events and parties is the first in-person "post pandemic" conference ( is the pandemic really over ? ) to take place in the United States since the beginning of Covid.

I was pleased to learn that the Mayor of the city of Miami;Francis Suarez, spoke at the beginning of Bitcoin 2021 to express his willingness to transform Miami into a tech hub. As specified in an article published by the New York Times on June 5th, 2021, he announced that tax payments will be payable in cryptocurrency later this year and that city employees will have the option to be paid with the digital currency.

The newspaper also reported that at least 12,000 people attended the conference, exhibiting a frenzy that seems to be shared by all the people and organizations who believe that Bitcoin and its friends are coordinating a hectic yet lasting revolution in the way many of us are and will do transactions, including those of NFTs ( ownnership of digital work that can't be copied ) such as music or digital art.

The volatility of cryptocurrencies is quite high these days due to the recent announcements and growth of the use of digital currencies. Some US senators are actually asking for more regulations for cryptocurrencies due to its high volatility and energy use.

The Blockchain technology allows to create peer-to-peer transactions in a decentralized way, without the authority of a government or a central bank. This is the anti Federal Reserve revolution and its impact could become major in the upcoming years on how and where we can hold title of products such as cars, boats and real estate.

If you are curious about how cryptocurrency and Blockchain will impact real estate or if you wish to sell or purchase real estate partly or entirely in cryptocurrency, feel free to reach out to me :
