Today it’s hard to find a person who has never heard the word “Bitcoin”. In addition, most of the world's population knows that this is a cryptocurrency trend and in some way it can replace fiat money. But true connoisseurs understand that thousands of lines of code and as many opportunities are hidden behind Bitcoin. Which ones? What is the likelihood that Bitcoin will become the main method of calculation? Who is involved in the development of cryptocurrency and how? You will find answers to all these questions in one of the conferences, which are indicated below.

The most likely alternative to fiat

Yes, despite all the shortcomings, Bitcoin is still the main competitor for "real money." Why? Because it is most valuable. In fact, there are many more reasons: from distribution options to the subtleties of technology.

If you want to be one of the first who buys coffee for BTC and does not see anything unusual in it, you need to attend one of the conferences. There you will learn not only about countries in which BTC has long become a common means of payment, but also the technical details of this cryptocurrency that prevent it from developing.
