Announcing new speakers for #MassiveAdoption (Memphis,TN on November 7-8, 2000 attendees) and re-announcing speakers previously confirmed in an effort to build a single comprehensive thread. We're currently at about 50% of our roster.

#MassiveAdoption is the first event focused on onboarding curious professionals into the world of blockchains & digital assets, including Bitcoin.

We do this through TEDx-style talks, workshops & real interactive crypto experiences with 🔥 partners.

And whiskey, music & BBQ.
Just today, @YahooFinance wrote that the average Bitcoin holder in America is older, a parent & more conservative (in many regards) than many of us had imagined.

This is who #MassiveAdoption speaks to.
Lots of new folks to the space who go to more advanced & established blockchain & Bitcoin events have told me they struggle keeping up with the narratives, the insider language & the culture & history.

At many events they feel they walked in on old friends telling inside jokes.
#MassiveAdoption is hosted by @FedexInstitute and @UMRFResearch.

Partners include @PurseIO @official_vault @monax.

Travel and accommodations via blockchain-powered partners, including @booklocal_in.

Many more 🔥partners to be announced soon (we're still 100+ days out).
