This is Silicon Valley Bitcoin's first ONLINE-ONLY event. And unlike those other online conferences, we're structuring it in a way that will have you glued to your monitor...

=== TOPIC: ===
Mining bitcoin is among the most competitive industries in the world. The advantage is gained by miners who can shave fractions of a penny off their energy costs or have access to the latest ASIC chips before the others... BUT the real breakout winners are the miners who fundamentally think differently about energy sourcing and consumption. These are the entrepreneurs founding cross-disciplinary businesses to subsidize massive electricity needs. They operate in public energy markets, find and harness excess production, seek out the coldest, best-ventilated places on earth to maintain an edge in a never-ending race.

Some think Proof Of Work's (PoW) unquenchable energy consumption is going to ravage the planet's resources just to win some block rewards. However, other visionaries think just the opposite. These renegades of economics point to Bitcoin's reward in the race for hashpower as THE VERY INCENTIVE our planet needs as miners are pushed to find cheaper, effective, and sustainable forms of generating electricity... potentially leading to the holy grail of scientific discoveries: FREE ENERGY. The impact on humanity will be innumerable.

Join us as Silicon Valley Bitcoin and George Burke host our panelists of the most innovative crypto miners in the world:

- Marco Streng - CEO, Genesis Mining - one of the largest mines and cloud mining operations in the world, located in Iceland.

- Marty Bent - Tales from the Crypt podcast host, co-founder of Great American Mining Co. - harnessing free, excess energy from oil/gas drilling rigs.
