The North American Bitcoin Conference (TNABC) kicks off this Friday, July 18th, at the House of Blues in Chicago with a party sponsored by BitPay.

TNABC expects more than 1,000 attendees from over 30 different countries to descend upon Chicago for a weekend of unparalleled thought-leadership. Tony Gallippi, our Executive Chairman and co-founder, will present on the future of payments and what to expect for merchant adoption in the near future.

During the conference, we are excited to host Brett Dulaney from ESPN, who will be on-site to answer questions about sponsorships and involvement with the Bitcoin Bowl to be held in St. Petersburg, Florida, December 26th.

There will also be a special presentation by Doug Devlin, CEO of Zuman, on incorporating our payroll API. Zuman is a cloud-based human resources service provider and the first to incorporate Bitcoin payments into their payroll processing through the BitPay API.

The North American Bitcoin Conference will take place at McCormick Place on Saturday and Sunday, July 19 & 20, and will consist of presentations and panels spearheaded by the best in the industry. Information on tickets and hotel accommodations can be found at
