Reflecting on Bitcoin Amsterdam 2023:

As the curtains close on Bitcoin Amsterdam 2023, we find ourselves amidst a whirlwind of inspiration, insights, and groundbreaking moments. Regarded as the largest Bitcoin event in Europe, Bitcoin Amsterdam stands as a testament to the vibrant and dynamic ecosystem that surrounds the world’s leading cryptocurrency. Over two days, the event brought together a myriad of enthusiastic thinkers (made sure to take our selfie with Jimmy Song 😉), seasoned investors, and influential figures from the industry, creating an electrifying atmosphere ripe with possibilities.

Speaking on stage!!!

At the heart of our journey through Bitcoin Amsterdam lies our debut as speakers, a momentous occasion that allowed us to share our vision and insights with a captivated audience. Taking to the stage at the Proof of Work podium, we delved into the topic of mass adoption of Bitcoin, emphasizing the pivotal importance of crafting an effective message to drive widespread acceptance and understanding. It was a surreal experience to witness our student community rallying behind us during the talk, a poignant reminder of the impact we strive to make within the blockchain space.

Beyond the confines of the stage, our engagement with students from across Europe added depth and dimension to our experience at Bitcoin Amsterdam. Amidst animated discussions and thought-provoking dialogues, we forged connections and exchanged ideas, laying the groundwork for collaborative endeavors and shared aspirations.

A defining moment of Bitcoin Amsterdam 2023 was the official announcement of the European Students Blockchain Coalition, a pioneering initiative aimed at uniting student blockchain associations across Europe. As fervent advocates for student engagement within the blockchain space, we seized the opportunity to champion the cause of empowerment and collaboration, inspiring a new generation of blockchain leaders to embrace the possibilities that lie ahead.


In addition to our speaking engagement, we had the privilege of participating in the Satoshi Radio podcast, where we had the opportunity to share our initiative with a wider audience. The overwhelming response and recognition we received served as a poignant reminder of the impact of our collective efforts and the resonance of our message within the broader community.

As we reflect on our journey through Bitcoin Amsterdam 2023, we are filled with a profound sense of gratitude, inspiration, and anticipation for the road ahead. Through our experiences, connections, and shared moments of discovery, we are poised to embark on a new chapter of growth, collaboration, and innovation within the ever-evolving landscape of blockchain technology.

Bitcoin Amsterdam 2023 may have drawn to a close, but its echoes will reverberate through our collective consciousness. Looking ahead, we are thrilled to announce our commitment to returning to Bitcoin Amsterdam in 2024, poised once again to take the stage as speakers and ambassadors for blockchain innovation. Together, we will make 2024 an even bigger and bolder chapter in the story of Bitcoin Amsterdam, marking yet another milestone in our collective quest for innovation, inspiration, and excellence.
