The four-day event will include an industry day, when Bitcoin converges with legacy financial and energy infrastructure; two days of general conference; and culminate with the Sound Money Fest music festival. The event will also feature an Open Source Stage, dedicated to exploring important developments in the Bitcoin ecosystem and the projects shaping it.
Confirmed Bitcoin 2022 speakers include Strike CEO Jack Mallers, MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor, Blockstream CEO Adam Back, “The Bitcoin Standard” author Saifedean Ammous, Lightning Labs CEO Elizabeth Stark, CIO of the Human Rights Foundation Alex Gladstein, Bitcoin and privacy advocate Odell, Spiral lead Steve Lee, among others.
