According to the agenda released by the conference, attendees can learn from a vast array of topics that include the different benefits retailers gain from accepting cryptocurrency, tips on investing in Bitcoin companies, potential innovations in Bitcoin, and the essential facts Bitcoin businesses need to know among many more interesting talks.
Also included in the list of seminars hosted on Inside Bitcoins Melbourne is the inevitable future of Bitcoin in the online gambling sector.
Bitcoin casinos, sportsbooks, and other betting sites serve as the largest avenues through which Bitcoin transactions are made, making up more than half of the total number of transactions worldwide. In fact, the Internet is witnessing an influx of Bitcoin casino operators that set up their online gambling businesses and take advantage of the technologies made possible by the digital currency.
As such, operators, customers, and Bitcoin guide contributors alike can gain viewpoints through this event about the advantages of Bitcoin gambling, the challenges it faces in light of regulation, law enforcement, and taxation, and the investment opportunities it presents as a form of business.
Inside Bitcoins Melbourne is this year’s fourth installment of the worldwide event, with previous events held in Germany, New York, and Hong Kong and future conferences set to take place in Tel Aviv, London, Las Vegas, and Seoul before the year ends.
