bitcoin++ is taking a look at layer-2s

Our April 2023 conference is all about what's going on in bitcoin layer-2s

Austin, TX | April 28 + 29 + 30 | Palmer Events Center

What to expect

Bitcoin++ is a developer-focused conference series. We place a heavy emphasis on long form lectures and workshops, with smaller more-focused audiences who are excited to get deeper into the cutting edge of bitcoin tech.

Our upcoming Austin conference will have a focus on layer-2 technology; we’ve invited a range of experts and builders across the scaling space to come talk about their projects and get users on-boarded to using them.

bitcoin++ is put on by Base58⛓🔓, the premier bitcoin protocol academy.

Where to Stay

The conference is at the Palmer Events Center. Here’s some suggestions for places to stay that are really close by! We don’t have an official hotel this year, as we’re at a conf center, (and typically the prices we get from partner hotels aren’t really amazing)
