Bitcoin Pizza Day Conference 2022 — May 21, 2022
Paralelni Polis, Prague, Czech Republic
The legendary Bitcoin pizza transaction marks an important moment in the history of libre digital money.
A small step, signalizing the birth of a whole era. It’s been 12 years since Bitcoin stepped into the world of payment networks for physical goods and opened the gates for the creation of a global parallel economy. Since then, we have experienced rather exponential growth in this new financial world. From a small community of cypherpunks and hackers, Bitcoin grew into a phenomenon with today’s mainstream recognition.
Held at the iconic Paralelni Polis in Prague, Bitcoin Pizza Day Conference aims to bridge the atmosphere of Bitcoin’s early days to the present by creating an open space for discussion and inspiration without political or economical dogmas.
Come to learn about using Bitcoin in your business or personal finances, the background of the cypherpunk and the current cryptoanarchy subculture, as well as to discuss sustainability, long-term effectiveness, and their limitations.
This one-day event speakers include Amir Taaki, Bitcoin OG, anarchist, and hacktivist, Sergej Kotliar, CEO & Founder of Bitrefill, Daniella Brozzoni, Bitcoin Developer, Joerg Platzer, Co-Founder of Berlin’s Room77, Aaron van Wirdum, a renown Bitcoin journalist, and John Carvalho, CEO of Synonym.
Tickets are priced at a gentle 100 Euro, see details at the event’s official website.
