Events likely in early 2025

Events like bitcoin++, Bitcoin Policy Summit, Bitcoin Atlantis, and BitBlockBoom are likely to occur again in early 2025, with dates mainly towards the early half of the year and on a recurring basis. Cheatcode, built by Peter McCormick of the What Bitcoin Did podcast, may also recur.

As bitcoin matures, it’s likely that more and more events that bill themselves as Bitcoin-only will spawn worldwide—and one-time events may become recurring events. These hubs for learning, community, and connection will do much to spread and strengthen bitcoin around the world.
