Mayor unveils ‘Miami Bull’ statue with laser eyes to kick off Bitcoin 2022

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez revealed a laser-eyed bull statue to mark the opening ceremony of Bitcoin 2022. This was meant to symbolise Miami’s status as the “world’s capital for crypto”.

According to the official website, the statue is a robotic-looking bull of 3,000 pounds. It was fashioned in the same style as the Charging Bull on Wall Street. Tradestation, a Florida-based finance company, commissioned the statue.

It was revealed at the Miami Beach Convention Center on April 6, where the conference was being held, and was immediately labelled as a crime against God by Intelligencer skeptics.

The new symbol of the future in finance has been embraced by the crypto community. Anthony “Pomp,” co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital, tweeted April 7: “The bulls have control.”

CZ, Binance’s CEO and founder, tweeted that the bull was “pretty cool”.

After greeting the expected 30,000 conference attendees, the bull will be released at Miami-Dade College to go out on pasture. The conference will be held from April 6 through 9.

Five stages are available for the conference, with the largest able to accommodate 15,000 people. The conference began with Pomp and Galaxy Digital CEO MIke Novagratz hosting a joint fireside talk. Next came chats with Jameson Lopp and Dan Held, all Bitcoin community leaders.

Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal, Odell Beckham Jr. of the NFL, and Michael Saylor CEO at MicroStrategy are just a few other speakers.

Nayib Bukele, president of El Salvador, was the last to be dropped from the conference lineup. President Bukele is dealing to gang violence outbreak in El Salvador, where a state emergency was declared that suspends some civil liberties and has drawn concern from human rights groups.

Bukele mentioned “unforeseen circumstances” in a note to conference attendees. This was tweeted by the Bitcoin2022 Twitter account on April 7.

We are sharing the following letter from President @nayibbukele, who unfortunately is unable to attend Bitcoin 2022 because of unforeseen circumstances in El Salvador that require his immediate attention. We stand with the Salvadorian people in these difficult times. READ:
