Bitcoin 2021 Miami continues with Tony Hawk, Kevin O’Leary and more

Bitcoin 2021 Miami continues after the massive opening of the historic event on Friday.

The events begin at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time (1:00 p.m. UTC) with opening remarks from a Miami-Dade County commissioner. Cointelegraph will continue to post Bitcoin 2021 updates on Twitter as well as on the YouTube channel.

One of the keynote speakers for the second day will be Tony Hawk, an American skateboarding icon and entrepreneur. Hawk took a giant leap into the cryptocurrency industry earlier this year, posting an NFT drop on Ethernity Chain in March with a tokenized video of his last 540 degree ollie.

The famous skateboarder will deliver a speech on “When A Counterculture Goes Mainstream” on the Nakamoto Stage at 9:45 AM ET (1:45 PM UTC). Hawk will also host a meet-and-greet session, where attendees will have the opportunity to receive a limited-edition skateboard deck signed by the legend.

Hawk’s speech will be followed by a panel discussion on cryptocurrency mining – one of the hottest topics in the crypto community. Shark Tank investor Kevin O’Leary will discuss crypto mining by public companies with Marathon CEO Fred Thiel, Riot Blockchain CEO Jason Les and Frank Holmes, Executive Chairman of Hive Blockchain Technologies.

What a first day for # Bitcoin2021! We were there with our great team and would like to remind you of the most important moments. Ready for day 2?
