For the (probably) final article of the day, I wanted to give ur readers my two cents on attending CoinSummit London 2014 this week. As this was my second Bitcoin conference this year, I now have slightly more experience with these things.
I have to concur with most of what Serge said in his article earlier today, which you can find here. I really loved the venue , East Wintergarden, as it is the perfect accommodation for a more intimate Bitcoin conference, such as CoinSummit London 2014.
The reason I call CoinSummit London 2014 a more intimate conference , is because this is an invite-only Bitcoin event. Thanks to our gracious hosts, Pamir Gelenbe and Gulnar Hasnain, both Serge and myself were among the lucky ones to receive a Media Pass.
There were about 400 people attending the event, which is a good number. With a smaller crowd, compared to the bigger Bitcoin events such as Bitcoin 2014 in Amsterdam, attendees are given a better chance to network properly in my opinion.
Speaking of networking, I want to thank all the amazing people who took their time to talk to both of us. We had so much fun discussing all kinds of topics : our website, what they were involved in, mining, hardware, comics, the world cup, and so much more!
A big thank you also goes out to the fine folks at SWARM and SpaceBIT, for each hosted a great after party. Free drinks (non-alcoholic for us as we have to work) are always welcome, and even though we did not partake in any food tasting, it all looked and smelled great.
The panels which took place during CoinSummit London 2014 were absolutely amazing. You may have noticed me tweeting several times about how cool they are, and how the livestream didn’t do the event justice, compared to attending it in person.
We would be honored to attend this event next year in London, as it provided an unforgettable experience!
