There are four people who stand to make big money if they manage to buy up enough of the newest coins before they are worthless: Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin, and two members of the Ethereum Foundation, in addition to Mati Greenspan . Greenspan is the CEO of Etherchain , a company that tracks all the tokens on the Ethereum network, and he has been a staunch supporter of Buterin’s cryptocurrency since it launched in 2015. Buterin, Saverin, and the two Foundation members are hoping to cash in on the event by bidding up the price of the newest coins, which Greenspan is betting will fail.

The Miami Bitcoin 2021 conference officially begins on the 4th. June, and with it a new debate on crypto-tribalism with some of the leading figures in the industry. Organizers expect more than 50,000 people to attend the conference at the Mana Wynwood Convention Center. Among the attendees at this year’s conference in Miami is Quantum Economics founder and former eToro senior market analyst Mati Greenspan. In his letter today, Greenspan pointed to the growing divisions within the cryptocurrency community, which he called a toxic problem. A financial advisor accidentally caused a stir on social media with an innocent comment that Bitcoin 2021 will be the biggest crypto conference ever! Mr. Greenspan was told in no uncertain terms that this was a bitcoin conference for bitcoin enthusiasts only. Pete Rizzo, editor-in-chief of Bitcoin, explained the situation to him: It’s a conference about bitcoin, about bitcoin. Bitcoin is a subject and is therefore used as an adjective. Greenspan countered that bitcoin was a crypto currency, but that only fanned a tirade of bitcoin maximalists claiming exclusivity for the event. This is a really crappy show – Mati Greenspan (tweets ≠ financial advice) (@MatiGreenspan) June 3, 2021. The Miami Bitcoin 2021 conference runs through June 5 and will feature a host of well-known industry figures, from former Congressman Ron Paul to Twitter’s Jack Dorsey to the Winklevoss twins and Morgan Creek digital partner Anthony Pompliano. To be fair to the organizers, they made it clear on their Telegram channel that this was a bitcoin/altcoin only event, which is not allowed: This is a conference solely about bitcoin. Please do not be distracted or diverted from the topic of the event. Leave conversations about other protocols and crypto-currencies to discussions outside the conference. A visibly frustrated Greenspan replied that there were clearly many insecure people among the Bitcoiners, and finally ended the debate by exclaiming: It’s a really crappy show. Bitcoin Maxis seems so uncertain in this thread. Insults and even threats for simply using inclusive words. WHAT THE HELL?! Bitcoin is not yours, and cryptocurrencies are not out to get your lunch. So relax. – Mati Greenspan (tweets ≠ financial advice) (@MatiGreenspan) June 3, 2021. In today’s newsletter, he clarifies his thoughts on the subject: Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and they can call me names all they want, but the one thing I will say about all this is that these so-called maxis do not own the bitcoin network. I’m a Bitcoiner too, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Greenspan said sectarianism is not productive and urged the community to focus its energy on a common enemy and not waste time and effort fighting among themselves. It’s not helpful. Greenspan wasn’t the only one with pro-bitcoin vibes: Some wondered why Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin was present at the conference after several photos surfaced of him, including one with Miami Mayor Francis Suarez speaking out in support of crypto-currencies. Buterin introduced Ethereum at the Bitcoin Miami 2014 event. DeFiPulse co-founder Scott Lewis saw the funny side of what was going on: lolol bitcoin-maxies trying to go 2 days without talking about Ethereum. I just can’t see it – Ξ (@scott_lew_is) May 28, 2021
