Day two of the 2021 Bitcoin Conference in Miami is underway, so let’s take a look at what the industry guests had to say on this day.
Mark Yusko, founder of Morgan Creek Digital: 39% of all dollars have been printed in the last 12 months, and it’s the dollar that’s the biggest shitcoin.
Tony Hawk, famous American skateboarding superstar: Bitcoin (is entering the mainstream) very quickly, very internationally, and for me it’s the future of finance. I’ve been buying bitcoin since 2012.
Elizabeth Stark, co-founder of Lightning Labs: There are billions of people around the world who don’t have access to financial services, and bitcoin is very important for that. I really care about bringing this technology to people who may not be on Twitter, or even speak English!
Lynn Alden, Macro Analyst: Every decade or so, there’s a new set of government debt victims. We should focus more on the use cases for Bitcoin, not just its investment potential.
Mike Novogratz, CEO of Galaxy Digital: Bitcoin is already the most held asset outside of the U.S. dollar, and I’m very optimistic about institutional investment in cryptocurrencies.
Charles Cascarilla, Co-Founder, Paxos: Bitcoin has incredible possibilities and it’s just getting started. Don’t just focus on the short-term price, but consider what long-term impact it will have. (Cointelegraph)
Some of the best excerpts from the first day.
The 2021 Bitcoin Conference kicked off in Miami, and the first day of the conference was packed with guests, with speeches from top government officials and industry luminaries, here are some excerpts.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez: Miami is striving to become the global capital of bitcoin, blockchain and mining capital. The days of currencies being tied to central banks are coming to an end. The US will become a clean energy bitcoin mining hub.
Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter: The Internet needs a native currency. We need to be able to use it for everyday transactions. We’re very focused on making Bitcoin the native currency of the Internet, and I don’t think I’ve ever had a more important job in my life than that.
Brian Brooks, former acting director of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC): If you haven’t worked for a big bank, you don’t know how serious the problem is.
U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis: Bitcoin could be a global infrastructure network that allows people to trade in a very free way while allowing the U.S. dollar to maintain its status as a global reserve currency.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: Whatever I can do, whatever my company can do to make making bitcoin available to everyone, that’s what I’m going to do for the rest of my life. We don’t need banks anymore. We don’t need the financial institutions that we have today, we have a thriving, community-based financial institution.
U.S. Rep. Warren Davidson: I hope the country takes the privacy threat issue as seriously as it does the Second Amendment, and if we don’t protect private wallets, there may be proposals to ban them.
Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy: I found out that I started buying bitcoin a year ago yesterday, which means my rookie year is over.
Kevin O’Leary, prominent investor: The Bitcoin conference was so hot, it was like a Woodstock. I believe bitcoin is a long-term asset class and I don’t care what kind of dramatic market swings Musk’s tweets can make, the more volatility there is, the more money I make on my DeFi investments.
