The Bitcoin 2023 Convention sets to take place on May 18-20 in Miami Beach, Florida. This event will bring together tech innovators, Bitcoin enthusiasts and notable industry figures.
The event’s primary focus is facilitating a platform that encourages diverse perspectives and opinions to build a robust Bitcoin community committed to addressing issues and finding solutions. The conference will feature speakers from diverse fields representing different sectors of society, ranging from academics to engineers to politicians.
According to Brandon Green, the director of events at BTC Inc., the participation of political speakers in the conference serves a more profound purpose beyond showcasing the growing acceptance of Bitcoin in the political realm.
“We imagine that through enticing with politicians who’re open to the speculation of Bitcoin, and furthering their figuring out of Bitcoin on the convention, we will be able to create champions for the business in Washington and past.”

Notable political figures expected to attend the conference are U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis from Wyoming, Governor Ridwan Kamil of West Java, Congressman Patrick McHenry of North Carolina, Congressman Byron Donalds of Florida, former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and former White House staff David McIntosh.
Political leaders speaking at the conference
Senator Lummis is a vocal proponent of Bitcoin and actively promotes the progress of technology through her introduction of various bills. She will be sharing her insights on Bitcoin’s role in the financial industry at the conference. Lummis will also discuss her co-sponsorship of the Financial Innovation Act of 2021, which seeks to establish a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
Governor Kamil oversees a population of over 50 million people in West Java. He is a forward-thinking leader who champions the adoption of innovation for the betterment of humanity. Kamil is collaborating with U.S. entities to promote education and adoption of Bitcoin in Indonesia and is spearheading these initiatives.
Congressman McHenry is committed to expanding access to financial tools and has been instrumental in passing groundbreaking legislation like the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. On the other hand, Congressman Donalds strongly advocates education reform and criminal justice reform and has been a vocal critic of central bank digital currencies and financial surveillance.
Former congresswoman Gabbard is expected to provide valuable insights into Bitcoin’s role in shaping the country’s future. McIntosh, an advocate for pro-Bitcoin legislation at both state and federal levels, believes Bitcoin is a more secure option than the inflationary US dollar.
