Bitcoin @ SXSW
I've been involved in the Bitcoin and blockchain community since 2012. A few years ago, I had the pleasure of working with industry leaders to bring a full day of Bitcoin content to SXSW. Bitcoin at SXSW 2015 was an official SXSW Interactive event with pannels talking about one of tech’s hottest trends. Leaders from the top companies in the Bitcoin Industry spoke on topics both for beginners and specialists. The conference included 20 speakers, 5 sessions, and 1 full day of Bitcoin content.
Leaders shared their knowledge about Bitcoin and the innovation currently going on in the industry.
I was a co-organizer for the key Bitcoin conference at SXSW Interactive 2015. My role in creating the event included helping conceive of the idea, forming the team, creating content and questions for the panelists, booking speakers, and finding sponsors. In addition, I worked with the team to design the branding, social media strategy, and developed the website we used to market the conference.
My favorite part of this project was working with industry leaders to identify the key topics attendees would want to learn about. We crafted the 5 panels around the biggest Bitcoin questions at the time and organized speakers with the greatest level of expertise on the subject matter. Overall, it was a lot of fun to work with key players to bring insight into a new technology to the 1,000+ people that attended.
