Da Nang, Vietnam

The beautiful city of Da Nang, Vietnam – which some have dubbed, ‘Bitcoin Beach Vietnam’ – will play host to Asia’s first Bitcoin and Lightning Network conference in the region.

Neutronpay, BitcoinVN and Nunchuk, who are all Vietnam-based Bitcoin-only companies, are excited to share what is happening in Asia as it relates to Bitcoin projects, Bitcoin communities and Lightning adoption across the region.

The conference will take place on March 22-24, 2023, at the beautiful beachside Furama Resort.

Malcolm Weed, COO of Neutronpay and the event’s main organizer, said,

“We’re extremely excited to be putting on the world’s first Bitcoin and Lightning event in Asia.

“Bitcoin adoption is very strong across the region with countries like Vietnam (1), Philippines (2), India (4), Pakistan (6), Thailand (8) and China (10) all being in the top 10 global rankings for Bitcoin adoption, making it the world’s Bitcoin epicenter.

“With over four billion people in Asia, representing half the world’s population – 70% of which are unbanked – it is no wonder Bitcoin adoption is so strong.”

Weed continued,

“When I looked around, I noticed that other parts of the world were being represented with events – but Asia, and more specifically emerging markets in Asia, had none and were being completely overlooked, considering the above mentioned global rankings.

“We’re proud to say that since we announced the event, it has been highly talked about and is now on many people’s yearly must-hit conference calendars.

“We’ve so far built a great speaker list, composed of many recognizable Bitcoiners with an emphasis on making sure we have representation from countries across the region from South Asia, Southeast Asia and East Asia.”

The event will kick-off with a beach meet and greet on the evening of March 22, followed by two days of speakers sharing the latest developments across the Bitcoin ecosystem, touching on both the technological and the economic aspects.

There will also be a strong representation of companies that are building on the Lightning Network and will share the current state of affairs and what exciting things are currently being worked on. As is the case with most events, there will be major new announcements, so stay tuned for live Tweeting from the event as they happen.

There will only be 500 attendees  so tickets are limited. General admission two-day passes are currently at $375, with ticket prices going up again on March 1. The non-profit event can be accessed by local Vietnamese at a preferential price of $35.

As a reminder, this is a Bitcoin-only event. There will be no content as it relates to NFTs, metaverse, Web 3.0, token sales and all that other nonsense.

We still have a few spots left for speakers, moderators, volunteers, sponsors and media, so if that is of interest to you, please reach out here.
