The long winter of crypto has caused the organizers of crypto events to reduce the quality significantly, allowing the attendees to focus on the “in-the-know” questions about law and taxation.
Crypto Summit attracts all types of crypto space, from developers and high-level executives to crypto influencers and everyday users. Tiffany Fong, the crypto vlogger who rose to interview former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried after the exchange collapsed, is attending a crypto conference for the first time this year.
Speaking to the sources, Fong — who attended both Bitcoin Miami 2023 and NFT NYC 2023 — said he “can’t comment on how the conference is going in the bull market,” but other attendees said he was hot on the ‘part of the fun this year. Fong is not too “worried that this year is good” as he believes that the enthusiasm for crypto remains strong and is an opportunity to meet others in the industry.
Meanwhile, on the weekend, XRP Las Vegas – a conference for XRP ($0.43) enthusiasts and “XRP Army” – took place on May 6 and 7 in the gambling capital of the United States. The attendees showed “real optimism about the future of crypto,” pro-XRP lawyer John Deaton told our sources.
Deaton, who has been active in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s ongoing media campaign against Ripple, said XRP fans were asking “intelligent and thoughtful questions” at the conference. . Still, he could see the frustration in their questions.
Deaton said that the frustration is that SEC chairman Gary Gensler’s “law by force” approach to crypto after the SEC recently took action against several crypto companies. Regulation also seems to be a priority for the crypto community in Australia.
Law was “by far” the most popular topic of discussion among attendees at Binance Australia’s new meetup event on May 3, according to Ben Rose, Managing Director of Binance Australia and New Zealand. Rose told Cointelegraph that crypto taxes were another topic that received high interest from attendees.
He added that there is still “interest from the crypto-curious” despite the bear market. Rose pointed out that the Australian crowd is starting to get excited about “the potential for a bull run [given] the rise in Bitcoin prices.”
