Have you ever been to a cryptocurrency event, like a conference or a meetup? They aren’t just for coin teams or journalists – they are filled with investors and fans, as well as people who are simply curious about the latest innovations in the sector.
The rise of the cryptocurrency event circuit
The cryptocurrency revolution is a truly global phenomenon – with coins popping up in remote parts of the world and sporadically blockchain-friendly governments in tiny countries dotted around the planet. There are crypto enthusiasts and investors (although we know that those aren’t always mutually exclusive) pretty much everywhere there is internet access, but it is quite clear that major metropolitan cities are what draw in the biggest industry meetups and conferences.
It seems like there is always something going on – something in the United Kingdom, Thailand, Arizona and Tel Aviv are all happening on the same day this week, for example. That presents a lot of digital currency enthusiasts with at least one event in their global region that will happen in the near future, so – as long as travel costs aren’t prohibitive – it shouldn’t be too hard to reach them.
How to find blockchain events near you
We really like the sites coincalendar.info and coincalendar.cc, which both have a pretty solid lineup of all sorts of cryptocurrency events – not just limited to physical events. These two sites also post software updates, impending announcements, new partnerships, etc.
If you just want to look for blockchain events only, like places where you can physically go and see them, we recommend this site called cryptomeetups.io. They divide everything by region, so it’s easy to take a look at things in the near term that are happening close to you.
Make sure you do your research on the actual event, so you can make sure it would be worth your time – and if the information will be interesting to you. Also check prices, and any other details that they put out – just do your due diligence, as always.
