Welcome to eMerge Americas, powered by Blockchain.com

This week, Miami will welcome 16,000 attendees from more than 40 countries to eMerge Americas, Miami Tech Month’s flagship event.

eMerge is a conference that features innovation and entrepreneurship across North and South America, bringing together government, higher education, startups, investors, corporate enterprises and media. As the first crypto company to move our HQ to Miami, we’re proud to be title sponsor of the event. We’ll work together to grow the crypto capital of America to a global finance and technology hub of the future.

Over the past year, Miami has witnessed an influx of crypto powerhouses. Mayor Suarez’s infamous tweet “How Can I Help?” on December 4, 2020 started a Miami Movement that continues to this day. Innovation was welcomed with open arms by local leaders, and entrepreneurship is thriving here.

Miami is unlike other tech hubs. It’s full of optimistic crypto builders, a community of artists and creators, and a Web3-savvy mayor. The city also saw crypto VC investment skyrocket from $6 million in 2020 to $745 million in 2021, and ranks fourth in the nation for the number of crypto hires.

As I recently shared with Bloomberg, the city has a non-corporate, laid back vibe, leading to unlikely meetings between strangers that can flourish into business partnerships. People want to help each other here, and are all invested in Miami’s success.

The general excitement about crypto in Miami is palpable, and eMerge Americas deserves a lot of credit. Manny and Melissa Medina have spent the last decade acting as a catalyst for innovation and investment across the Americas, building the South Florida entrepreneurial and tech ecosystem.

As more and more people are exposed to web3 we want to help people get started by giving away a bitcoin bonus.

To be eligible:

  • Provide your email address on the landing page (blockchain.com/emerge)
  • Sign up for our Wallet using the same email address.
  • Verify your identity.
  • Purchase $100+ of crypto.

On or around May 30th, 2022 we’ll provide $50 of bitcoin to eligible wallets.

See you this week in Miami!
