Global leaders from the Bitcoin Cash community will explain the power and potential of the cryptocurrency at the first Bitcoin Cash City Conference in Australia, being held in Townsville on September 4 & 5.
Due to Townsville’s embrace of leading cryptocurrency Bitcoin Cash, Australia’s first gathering of enthusiasts and business leaders from all over the world will convene for a chance to actually use the low-cost, frictionless payment system and digital money while enjoying the region’s temperate climate and many attractions.
Bitcoin Cash has caught-on among merchants in Townsville, and mostly because it enables anybody to move any amount of money anywhere in the world: instantly, securely, and consistently with fees less than a cent. Bitcoin Cash essentially does away with banks and puts users in full control of their money. Merchants are taking up Bitcoin Cash, according to locals, because it competes with Visa and Mastercard, eliminating fees and giving them an extra three percent on all payments.
Local enthusiasm for the cryptocurrency has made Townsville a hotbed of Bitcoin Cash activity: many Townsville businesses from coffee shop owners to helicopter operators now take Bitcoin Cash, via a smartphone app, as payment for goods and services.
Noel Lovisa, CEO of Townsville-based software company Code Valley explained:
“Townsville enjoys the highest per capita merchant adoption of Bitcoin Cash in the world. The North Queensland Bitcoin Cash Merchants’ Group leveraged that to secure the Bitcoin Cash City Conference.”
Townsville has become known as “Bitcoin Cash City,” and so the conference naturally takes advantage of such notoriety. North Queensland has also quietly founded nearly a dozen Bitcoin Cash-related software companies, several attracting venture capital in the millions.
“We’ve got 20 top international Bitcoin Cash speakers coming to this conference. The number one speaker, Amaury Séchet, helped write the original Bitcoin Cash client known as Bitcoin ABC, successfully upgrading Bitcoin to scale on-chain. That was the genesis of getting the original Bitcoin mission back on track after it was derailed.”
Hayden Otto, CEO of Townsville-based BitcoinBCH.com, stressed a key difference in this first of-its-kind conference for Australia:
“Bitcoin Cash is so popular in Townsville that conference delegates will be able to pay with it for everything they need during their stay. In addition to flights, accommodation, car rental and tourism activities, you can get all your food, drink and even pay for your laundry with Bitcoin Cash.”
He says the Bitcoin Cash City Conference presents a unique opportunity for Australians to discover the potential of cryptocurrency.
“I want to personally invite you to the world’s premiere Bitcoin event. Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer electronic cash that’s paving the way for financial sovereignty and greater economic freedom for people of all walks of life. Not everyone understands this, but we’re bringing together all those who do for an unparalleled conference which won’t be forgotten.”
Through a free app, an electronic wallet from Bitcoin.com, attendees can experience the brave new world of cryptocurrency while learning more from guest speakers such as developers, legal experts, and entrepreneurs active in the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem.
Noel adopted Bitcoin Cash initially to solve a problem for Code Valley’s emergent coding project.
“We’ve created a new technology for producing software by combining tiny fragments from around the world. Bitcoin Cash enables me to send a million dollars or as little as 20 cents to somebody in another country with it clearing instantly for a tenth of a penny. I can operate in 150 countries without needing to support 150 currencies”.
“There is also a roadmap of regular upgrades to meet demand so Bitcoin Cash is very reliable. And it’s hassle-free because there is no central point of authority. Bitcoin Cash is going to be the world’s number one cryptocurrency. Come along to the conference to find out why.”
The Bitcoin Cash City Conference will be held on September 4 and 5 at Quayside Terminal, Lennon Drive, South Townsville, Queensland.
