Bitcoin, the world’s latest and greatest virtual and decentralized currency, has caught the online gambling industry’s eye and the first Bitcoin London conference takes place July 2nd in Canary Wharf.
Scheduled speaker Erik Voohrees, founder of SatoshiDice.com, is making the trip to London from Panama City to participate: “This London conference will be an excellent followup to the momentum at the large recent Bitcoin conference in San Jose. This one should be a little more focused on B2B and professional networking, whereas the first was more of an enthusiast convention. I’m very excited to learn more about the various projects being built around the world, especially Europe and Asia. And of course, when you get a bunch of crypto-industrialists together, it’s always a good time”.
The biggest and most famous poker event in the world is already heating up at the Rio in Las Vegas– The World Series of Poker or WSOP. The WSOP Main Event runs from July 6th until the 15th and according to CalvinAyre.com Presenter and Bodog sponsored player Tatjana Pasalic, “The WSOP Main Event is still the most prestigious event with a huge field that is very tough to beat. Everyone who plays poker dreams about this bracelet”.
