The Bitcoin Conference 2022 team will plant their flag in Amsterdam, bringing the world’s largest Bitcoin event to Europe.

This is an opinion editorial by Brandon Green, the Chief of Staff of BTC Inc. Disclaimer: BTC Inc is the parent company of Bitcoin Magazine.

At Bitcoin Magazine, we have worked hard to increase the visibility and voice of the Bitcoin movement. We built a website share news and ideas, some social media accounts to announce news and spread memes, a print magazine capture and spread the culture of Bitcoin, a media team to create Bitcoin content of all types, and a Bitcoin Conference to bring everyone together and shine the spotlight on the industry.

Our last conference, Bitcoin 2022, ended up being not only the biggest Bitcoin conference in the world, but also the biggest financial conference and one of the biggest cultural events in the world. But it’s a US-centric event, with mostly US-centric speakers, companies, and attendees.

Bitcoin is not just an American phenomenon.

Bitcoin is global, and it’s time for Bitcoin Magazine to become more global as well. Bitcoin Magazine’s ultimate goal is to grow the Bitcoin movement across all continents and languages. We have started to establish the brand in various countries around the world (more on this in later updates). Now we are excited to launch Bitcoin Amsterdamour first conference outside the United States.

Bitcoin Amsterdam follows in the footsteps of Bitcoin 2014, the second Bitcoin conference ever, which was also held in Amsterdam. Like Bitcoin 2014, we will bring together the European Bitcoin community and others from around the world to celebrate, teach, collaborate and learn more about Bitcoin. Europe has been a hotbed of Bitcoin innovation, with many of our most prolific developers and brightest entrepreneurs hailing from the continent. And yet, while there are great conferences for hardcore Bitcoiners and developers, we don’t have a gathering place for people ranging from the curious to the convict to come together and build the movement in Europe. It’s time to change that.

The goal is not just to bring Bitcoin 2022 to Europe, but to plant a flag for the world’s largest Bitcoin conference, featuring the luminaries, cypherpunks, freedom fighters, celebrities and geeks of Europe and elsewhere who can articulate and highlight how Bitcoin is changing the world from scratch.

The people, businesses and communities that our movement nurtures in the bear market will be most primed for explosive growth in the bull market. Europe is ready for a bitcoin transformation. Don’t sit and watch it happen – join us to make it happen! If you have a business that needs to be built, an idea that needs to be shared, or relationships that need to be nurtured, Bitcoin Amsterdam will be the best opportunity to do so. And of course, if you just want to get started with your fellow Bitcoiners, the drinks will be flowing and the city will be waiting for you.

Come build the movement with us. Don’t miss!
