About The Summit

Great revolutions happen slowly

The Bitcoin Summit is the largest summit for cryptocurrency holders and companies in the Blockchain Industry in Israel. The summit is expected to attract nearly thousand attendees, delegates, and start-ups in Israel and worldwide.

Crypto and Blockchain events are usually impressively lined up with the most glamorous  entrepreneurs who promise us a new economy. However, the way there is full of challenges and it is much harder to dig into the depths of technology and the hidden secrets of the practitioners. Therefore, we have set ourselves the goal of bringing you the best hands-on advice by pioneers, for pioneers.

Meet our speakers

In times of great uncertainty, we have gathered for you entrepreneurial pioneers and policymakers to ask them one simple question. Where do we go from here?
