We Know Nodes.

Last week, thousands descended to Miami to celebrate the Bitcoin Conference which included productive conversations about blockchains, tokens, NFTs and more. After the conference was cancelled last year, the event was sold out and Miami was able to comfortably host the first major in-person blockchain business conference since the pandemic began.

The Blockdaemon Team enjoyed the opportunity to meet up with many friendly faces but if we missed you, we’d still like to connect! It was also an amazing precursor to the exciting news for our Series A closing. See upcoming events and updates below!
