About The Roundtable VIII
Now in its eighth year, the Roundtable is characterized by high-level private discussions in a private relaxed venue, this years event brought together leading developers, CEOs, founders, scientists, academics and investors. With each iteration, we have learned and grown as our industry has continued to evolve.
As the industry continues to change, it is more important than ever to make effective use of time. The Roundtable format is a unique interactive, organic, and decentralized discussion structure designed to help you get the maximum amount of learning, meetings, and work done in the most efficient way possible.
The event is all inclusive and private, and is well suited for private meetings, breakaway sessions and side discussions. The formal and informal sessions will again combine the unconference format with decentralized learning. This format relies heavily on the varied depth of expertise and experience of the group of attendees.

Satoshi Roundtable I (2015)
What Our Attendees Are Saying
“Another year, another Roundtable! Bruce Fenton’s annual unconference proved to be another welcome winter respite; I’ve been to Roundtables during both bear and bull markets and sentiments this year were quite optimistic that we’re at the dawn of a banner year.“
“It was my pleasure to once again attend the Satoshi Roundtable organized by Bruce Fenton, I enjoy this event each year because it’s a relaxed atmosphere without massive herds of people and it offers lots of opportunities to have frank face-to-face discussions with people in the industry who are generally too busy to chat… See you in 2020!”
“The innovation and the innovators are as spread out as the networks they hope to grow and foster. I think this diversity of opinion and inputs is a strength and it shows the power of digital connection to drive change…For me, this event is the best of the year…The learning possibilities are endless, and the passion is contagious.”
“Another year, another outstanding Satoshi Roundtable. Much is misunderstood about this event. Its exclusivity has been seen as controversial by some. In reality, the mystique is just a small part of a carefully curated experience designed to create opportunities for industry members to interact with and learn from one another in ways that are not possible at other events. And it has excelled at doing so each time I’ve attended. The Sixth Edition of the Satoshi Roundtable did not disappoint and was perhaps the best one yet. There aren’t many conferences or industry events that you wish would never end. The good ones are best kept relatively short. Satoshi Roundtable is an exception. There’s something special about what happens there.“
“First off I’d like to thank Bruce Fenton for including me in the event. I agree with Rick Falkvinge and others that the event was well organized and provided a great forum for everyone to foster good conversations…In true cypherpunk style we spent a lot of time poking holes in ideas not people.”
“Last weekend I attended the Satoshi Roundtable conference along with Charlie Lee and about 70 other members of the bitcoin community… A number of meetings took place between core developers, miners, and CEOs of Bitcoin companies. As you’re aware, there is a large disagreement about how bitcoin should scale right now. On one side you have the core developers who have concerns about how on-chain scaling will impact decentralization. On the other side you have most bitcoin companies who want growth.”
