October 22, 2021 12:07:43
An ongoing business migration to southern Florida’s international hub for commerce and travel is also sweeping in tech companies, and next month’s Florida Bitcoin and Blockchain Summit has been designed to harness that innovative market energy with a two-day in-person gathering that delivers a “clear and unique strategy on making Florida the leader in blockchain and financial technology” (https://ccw.fm/xbX0q). The Nov. 4 and 5 conference will take place at Tampa’s Amalie Arena, home of the current back-to-back NHL Stanley Cup Championship team the Tampa Bay Lightning. It will be organizer Chris Krimitsos’ second in-person event of the year in response to high demand for a timely gathering cognizant of the ongoing world pandemic conditions. Krimitsos is the innovator behind Florida’s internationally popular Podfest conference series. The first Bitcoin and Blockchain Summit he launched this summer in Orlando with entrepreneur Gabe Higgins introduced their aim to bring together stakeholders, businesses, and political leaders from across Florida as well as from outside the state to forge a continued growth strategy for the industry. “There is a lot of nuances to how blockchain is being used, but that’s the problem — we need to meet one another and know what everyone is doing, so we can have a cross-flow of ideas,” Krimitsos told business journal Tampa Bay Inno in June (https://ccw.fm/NwkvM). “You’ve got Miami, which the new financial capital of the country. And Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville and other cities now have a huge opportunity to be the new Silicon Valley of blockchain if we play our cards right.” The journal noted that the metropolitan region has already attracted a number of blockchain and crypto power generators, including Celsius crypto co-founder Nuke Goldstein, Tampa-based blockchain company Pocket Network and blockchain-focused BlockSpaces founded by HIggins. The Tampa summit teams Krimitsos and Higgins with other Cutting Edge Events entrepreneurs to offer presentations in three tracks for beginners, stakeholders and advocates, bringing together both novices and experts to work in fostering growth within the blockchain and cryptocurrency sector. Tampa Mayor Jane Castor and more than two dozen companies and educators will be among the presenters. An associated Reach developers workshop on Nov. 5 at the Amalie Arena will provide the tools for developers to build blockchain applications in a matter of hours or days instead of weeks or months (https://ccw.fm/yNi2f).
