Bitcoin Events’ popular Crypto Fest is back for its third edition on 29 October 2021 and once again will be hosted online with controversial speakers and discussions. The event will be a festive gathering of 2,500+ attendees, uniting entrepreneurs, traders, investors, developers, industry enthusiasts, among others, with a jam-packed day with exciting keynotes, workshops, presentations, contentious topics, product exhibitions, competitions and entertainment.

Bring your virtual boxing gloves! The Crypto Battles brings together speakers from a variety of backgrounds to debate and contest controversial topics.

The after-party will take place after the main event with a DJ providing the live entertainment.
