As the bear market rages on, the die-hards, evangelists and believers just keep building. In this week’s episode of Decentralize with Cointelegraph, reporter Joe Hall spoke to CEOs, key opinion leaders and cryptographic visionaries at two of the world’s largest Bitcoin (BTC) conferences: Bitcoin 2023 in Miami, Florida, and BTC Prague in the Czech Republic.

While BTC’s price has remained stubbornly under $30,000 in 2023, the Bitcoin 2023 conference welcomed 15,000 Bitcoin enthusiasts through its doors just off Miami Beach. In June, the first edition of BTC Prague set records as more than 7,000 attendees hit the Czech capital to learn about and interact with Bitcoin.
