Liberland President Vít Jedlička Delivers Keynote Address at World’s Biggest Bitcoin Conference, Bitcoin Miami

Liberland President Vít Jedlička Delivered Keynote Address at World’s Biggest Bitcoin Conference, Bitcoin Miami

MIAMI, May 18, 2023 – President Vít Jedlička of Liberland, the first nation to formally adopt Bitcoin as its official currency, has just given a keynote speech at the world’s largest Bitcoin event, Bitcoin Miami. President Jedlička’s keynote address took place on the main stage earlier today. In 2015, Liberland was the first nation-state to embrace Bitcoin (BTC) fully, showcasing its commitment to decentralization and financial sovereignty. 

During his keynote, President Jedlička introduced the ideas that form the bedrock of Liberland and the reasoning behind its founding. After years of attempting to work within the existing system, Jedlicka realized that creating meaningful change within entrenched systems is often a slow and challenging process. This realization led to the radical idea of founding a new country where human potential and the potential of Bitcoin can be unleashed.

Liberland has made impressive strides in its growth and international relations. The country boasts over 700,000 citizens who have signed up, more than 23 diaspora villages, and 76 representative offices working towards international recognition. This number of representative offices surpasses that of a typical EU country, underscoring the extensive global footprint Liberland has achieved in its relatively short existence. The efforts have borne fruit, with partial recognition already achieved from the Dominican Republic, among others.

Presently, the settlement of Liberland is underway, with the country inviting people from around the world to live in Liberland or on the river on a houseboat. The country and the adjacent Liberland ARK Village are open to visitors this summer, with a host of activities planned almost every month, offering a glimpse into the life of a Liberland citizen and the freedom-centric ethos the nation embodies.

“Liberland’s pioneering adoption of Bitcoin as its official currency reflects our commitment to freedom and innovation,” President Jedlička stated. “We are excited to share our journey and learn from other leaders in the Bitcoin community at this significant event.”

President Jedlička shares the conference space with esteemed figures such as Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy; Michael Lewis, author of The Big Short; Arthur Hayes from the 100x Group; and Zoltan Poszar, Managing Director of Credit Suisse. 

Bitcoin Miami, a three-day conference currently taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, is dedicated to promoting the potential of Bitcoin. The event features influential speakers, showcases from leading Bitcoin companies, a peer-to-peer marketplace, Bitcoin games, an art gallery, and more.
