(March 22, 2021)- Miami – Bitcoin 2021, the world’s largest annual Bitcoin conference, has announced that it will return to an in-person event this year and will no longer be held in Los Angeles. It will instead be held in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood at MANA Wynwood, a convention center campus owned by visionary entrepreneur Moishe Mana, Miami’s largest private landowner.
In partnership with the City of Miami, Mayor Francis X. Suarez and MANA Common, Bitcoin 2021 was conceptualized with the mission to take Bitcoin back to its origins and “make Bitcoin fun again.” The conference will offer community connections, technical education and real-world Bitcoin implementations in a collaborative and festival-style atmosphere featuring food trucks, a Lightning Network-powered video game arcade, a skateboard halfpipe that will be used by Tony Hawk, a Bitcoin-inspired art gallery and a beer garden networking area.
“Our team is extremely excited to welcome our attendees for the first time in Miami, a city which has taken significant strides in the past few months to welcome and support the growing Bitcoin community,” said David Bailey, CEO of event organizer BTC Media. “We had an incredibly successful 2019 conference, and it was clear that people wanted a place to learn and talk about Bitcoin and build new relationships. This year, as we witness Bitcoin’s meteoric rise in the mainstream conversation, we want to bring Bitcoin, the movement, into focus and celebrate the individuality of the people who make up this incredible ecosystem.”
Bitcoin 2021 will run from June 4-5, with an institutional-focused “Whale Day” on June 3. The conference will welcome a multifaceted cast of speakers including the leading entrepreneurs, developers, researchers and regulators focused on all things Bitcoin.
Over 100 partners will participate and be given the opportunity to showcase their latest technology, wallets, nodes and services. Many of the 10,000 attendees are from bitcoin-focused businesses looking to grow alongside the market and will be seeking opportunities for partnerships, new hires, investors and more.
“Our vision for Miami as a global tech hub is becoming more real each day,” says Moishe Mana, visionary entrepreneur and CEO of Mana Common. “We’re thrilled to support an event like this, which furthers our mission and fuses all the best things Miami has to offer, from technology to international finance, entertainment and commerce.”
The inaugural Bitcoin 2019 conference saw 2,000 attendees converge on San Francisco to celebrate 10 years of the technology. Speakers featured privacy advocate Edward Snowden, alongside notable early adopters like ARK Invest CEO & CIO Cathie Wood and investor Tim Draper.

About Mana Common
Mana Common is our platform for neighborhood revitalization.
We believe that truly integrated neighborhoods, where residents can live, work, and play, are the wave of the future. As such, the divisions of Mana Common reflect the most basic elements upon which a community is built: Culture, Commerce, Technology, Property, Agriculture, and Social Impact.
The name, “Mana Common,” originates from our belief that our world is becoming more and more connected. Rather than focusing on our differences, our shared humanity gives us common ground, common decency, and common knowledge upon which a truly thriving community ecosystem must be built.
Using the Mana Common process, we begin building community ecosystems long before any construction begins and continue to nurture them long afterwards. This allows for rapid, meaningful, permanent vitality for a neighborhood.
