Magical Crypto Conference 2019 Aims to Make Bitcoin Great Again
The inaugural Magical Crypto Conference is set to take place on May 11-12, 2019, in New York City, promising an incredibly impressive gathering of Bitcoin entrepreneurs, software developers, and influential crypto Twitter personalities.
What started as some form of an opposition to Consensus, CoinDesk’s annual blockchain conference with its recent shift towards the fintech and distributed ledger sectors, is now expected to be one of the top events for true crypto enthusiasts and diehard cypherpunks.

As the story goes, a group of experts including @satoshilite, @fluffypony, @WhalePanda, and @excellion came up with an idea of organizing an alternative event. Behind those monikers, collectively known as Magical Crypto Friends, are Litecoin’s creator Charlie Lee, Monero’s lead maintainer Riccardo Spagni, crypto Twitter legend WhalePanda, and Samson Mow, CSO at Blockstream.
We have noticed a big demand for a more technical $Crypto/#Bitcoin focused conference. That’s why we want to announce#MagicalCryptoConf, #cypherpunk conference which will take place during the 2019 #BlockchainWeekNYC. A poll for the date and call for volunteers will follow soon!

“Our aim is that everyone leaves the conference with the feeling that they’ve learned something new. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been in Bitcoin since 2009 or 2019 this conference will have something for everyone.” – Magical Crypto Friends
