Townsville hosting bitcoin conference next month

Australia’s first cryptocurrency conference will take place in Townsville next month.

The Bitcoin Cash City conference will be held on 4–5 September at the Quayside Terminal in South Townsville.

The event will feature 26 guest speakers from across the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem, including Hayden Otto, CEO of Townsville-based BitcoinBCH.

Other local speakers include Jeanette Murphy, CEO of North Queensland bitcoin cash accounting and compliance start-up Echt Fin; cafe owner Donna Fitzpatrick, whose two North Queensland cafes accept payments in Bitcoin Cash; and Lexcode Legal Director Tony Hockings, a lawyer experienced in commercial and technology work.

On the development end, speakers include Bitbox SDK creator and Bitcoin.com Director of Developer Services Gabriel Cardona, Bitcoin Unlimited President Andrew Clifford, Bitcoin ABC Lead Developer Amaury Séchet and Bitcoin Verde Lead Developer Joshua Green.

The CIO of the local government of the city of Dublin, Ohio, in the US will also present details of a project to use Bitcoin Cash to reward and incentivise residents of the city.

A special guest at the conference will be Naomi Brockwell, a film and TV producer and presenter who has been making videos about bitcoin since 2013. Brockwell emcees some of the world’s largest blockchain conferences each year.
