The couple is sincere about Bitcoin and not leaving any stone unturned in making it popular.
The couple also wants to organize events that throw light on the issues Bitcoin is facing. The latest event according to the couple is being held in San Francisco as the Bay Area is the “nexus of innovation” in the US and the world. According to them a conference is the best way to meet up with other people and discuss the challenges and opportunities.
The CoinSummit will be focusing on the price of Bitcoin in two to three years, and whether regulation is going to kill this whole thing. The attendees too will be looking at the debates and discussions that will throw light on the future course of action.
