Bitcoin 2019 aims to unite the community around the original cryptocurrency.
For the first time in more than five years, a community gathering focused specifically on Bitcoin will convene in North America at Bitcoin 2019, a two-day conference to be held at SVN West in San Francisco from June 25-26. By assembling legacy voices alongside contemporary thought leaders, the conference aims to reconnect a fractured community around its collective goals and highlight the people and ideas driving the technology forward.
Ten years after the first Bitcoin block was mined, cryptocurrency is one of the technology and finance industries’ hottest topics and has generated divisiveness within its community. Balancing an exploration of current technical issues and macro societal trends, the event program features notable early adopters like Bitmain Co-founder Jihan Wu and ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees, alongside industry thought leaders like Morgan Creek Digital Co-founder and Partner Anthony Pompliano and Blockchain Capital Bitcoin Fellow Jimmy Song. Other noteworthy conference speakers include ARK CEO Cathie Wood, who was the first public fund manager to invest in Bitcoin in 2015, and Stephen Pair, CEO of BitPay, the leading payment processor of Bitcoin globally.
David Bailey, CEO of conference organizer BTC Inc, said:
“We need to expand the intellectual frontier of Bitcoin. That means: educating new users about the philosophical tenets that underpin the system, cultivating and highlighting future generations of Bitcoin leaders, expanding Bitcoin’s utility and showcasing its progress, improving developer access to review, contributing code and improving interindustry communication. Perhaps most importantly, we need to make Bitcoin fun again.”
Inspired by the annual gatherings that took place in the technology’s infancy, Bitcoin 2019 will be an interactive conference experience focusing on connecting the community. The three-story venue will feature a number of areas for networking and an intimate breakout stage for roundtables, presentations, and workshops. The event floor will showcase cutting-edge trends, like Lightning micropayments, and feature installations from leading artists in the Bitcoin community.
Ancillary to the conference will be the Bitcoin Games, a global, virtual hackathon competition for the Bitcoin community’s best and brightest to participate in hacks surrounding technical innovations as well as nontechnical ways to grow the Bitcoin ecosystem. In line with the mission of Bitcoin 2019, the Bitcoin Games are designed to challenge the Bitcoin community to continually innovate in order to push forward the influential technology.
Bitcoin 2019 is open for registration to individuals from any sector, with ticket prices starting at $199. To register and for additional information, visit here.

Worldwide IEO leader ProBit Exchange raises $678,000 in BolttCoin IEO
On June 26, ProBit Exchange sold out all 800,000 BOLTT during Round 3 of Boltt Coin IEO to wrap up a perfect 3 for 3 with three consecutive IEO sellouts. The stellar results helped the health gamification blockchain project raise a stunning $678,000 as they continue to ramp up their social-health objectives centering around an incentive-based app that rewards users for undertaking physical challenges.
Amidst considerable hype by local and global investors, Round 1 completed almost instantaneously within just a second. A few hours later, Round 2 was launched and met with even greater demand as investors quickly claimed the increased allocation of 500,000 BOLTT in a matter of two seconds.
Within the span of just 3 seconds, ProBit Exchange managed to successfully raise $278,000 for Boltt Coin. The project had already generated major interest through significant partnerships with Kakao subsidiary Klaytn which has announced its upcoming mainnet release along with BCryptos, a Japanese blockchain investment firms backed by a top local VC.
The momentum carried over to the launch of Round 3, which went live June 26, resulting in a quick sellout of all 800,000 tokens and raising yet another eyebrow-raising $400,000 to wrap up a rare sold-out IEO trifecta.
The incredible achievement marks yet another standout IEO campaign throughout their 70+ total IEO rounds conducted so far. ProBit Exchange previously sold out 3 consecutive rounds for Spin Protocol back in March, raising over $500,000 behind the furious pace set from the getgo with $130,000 raised in round 1 in less than 3 minutes.
Ronald Chan, Director of Partnership for Probit Exchange shared that the ability for Probit Exchange to bring in foreign teams to Korea to raise hundreds of thousands is attributed to the track record of IEO on Probit as well as the extensive marketing that Probit Exchange does for IEO projects.
LINIX, Steemhunt, and CLINK are among other projects who saw their IEO campaigns quickly sell out to maximize their initial investments and secure considerable funding for further development.
A steady and increasing stream of projects continues to flock over to acquire the highly sought out IEO expertise of one of the top IEO platforms in the world, a significant achievement for the young exchange who has already rivaled the industry giants in just 7 months of operation.
