In 2022, he will update the eager audience about the process El Salvador undertook in adopting Bitcoin, and how cryptocurrency is providing vast opportunities to its citizens.

The conference will be held in Miami from April 6th – 9th, 2022 with the purpose of connect all Bitcoiners – industry leaders, CEOs, innovators, BTC holders, and even precoiners – in one place.
The conference, organized by Bitcoin Magazine, is marked as the largest Bitcoin event in history, and will host over 35,000 Bitcoin enthusiasts, and 3,500+ attending companies from all over the world.
"El Salvador is leading the way for the world by plugging its economy into the Bitcoin network. Last year's announcement was a watershed moment for Bitcoin and for the world. We're all eager to hear from President Bukele how the rollout has progressed, and learn how we can each help to build a more robust, global monetary system using Bitcoin,"
