Bitcoin is for everyone.

We, the conference organizers, don’t like making rules. However, it’s better to go ahead and make them rather now than make them up as we go along.

We want everyone to feel welcome attending this event to learn more about Bitcoin. The following is our blueprint for achieving that goal.

Expected Behavior

  1. Be yourself – participate in an authentic and active way.
  2. Be respectful – treat people well, even if you disagree with them.
  3. Be safe – don’t harm your fellow attendees and don’t damage the venue space.

Unacceptable Behavior

  1. Violence, threats of violence or violent language directed against another person.
  2. Sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist or otherwise discriminatory jokes and language.
  3. Posting or displaying sexually explicit or violent material.
  4. Posting or threatening to post other people’s personally identifying information (“doxing”).
  5. Personal insults, particularly those related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or disability.
  6. Inappropriate photography or recording.
  7. Inappropriate physical contact. You should have someone’s consent before touching them.
  8. Unwelcome sexual attention. This includes, sexualized comments or jokes; inappropriate touching, groping, and unwelcomed sexual advances.
  9. Deliberate intimidation, stalking or following (online or in person).
  10. Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
  11. Sustained disruption of community events, including talks and presentations.


  1. Unacceptable behavior from anybody at the conference, including sponsors and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated.
  2. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
  3. If someone engages in unacceptable behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community without warning (and without refund in the case of a paid event).

Reporting Guidelines

  1. Find a conference organizer (or a volunteer who can help you find a conference organizer).
  2. Ask for an organizer on conference Discord or Telegram.
  3. Email
