The Bitcoin Investor conference has started at the premier Bitcoin accepting hotel in downtown Las Vegas – The D – following a strong presence for the bleeding edge technology at fintech conference Money 20/20. Just years ago, not even Satoshi Nakamoto or Nick Szabo (the creator of smart contracts), would have imagined that things would be moving forward on such a fast time scale.The event will run through October 29th and 30th and will feature many prominent Bitcoin companies and speakers. The D accepts Bitcoin for hotel bookings and even at their gift store. That’s right, you can buy alcohol with Bitcoin and it’s not a problem. Started by Steven Michaels, the event’s twitter handle is @Bitcoin_Up, which is very poignant given the recent double digit percentage rise in the Bitcoin price. Bitcoinist is proud to bring live coverage from the event so follow along at @Bitcoinist.
