The Satoshi Roundtable
The Satoshi Roundtable is an annual gathering of the industry’s key players in an informal, yet private environment where participants to freely discuss current events, obstacles, and opportunities in the blockchain space. Attendees included notable Bitcoin CEOs, developers, entrepreneurs, investors, and early adopters such as Erik Voorhees, Charlie Lee, Vitalik Buterin and Nic Cary.
The Sidetable events are smaller, more focused conferences held throughout the year where atendees are able to dive deeper into discussion around specific trends and topics in crypto and fin tech.
This smaller two-day event will be facilitated in our signature “unconference” or organic style where participants help generate the agenda and focus. We believe the best part of most traditional events and retreats is often the sidebar talks in the hallway. This Sidetable event is designed to facilitate such talks and place participant generated learning and discussion at the forefront.
Our last Sidetable took place on October 17th & 18th at the Wentworth by the Sea Hotel where the theme was Bitcoin, Securities, and the Global Economy.
Free State Blockchain Digital Assets Conference
The last Free State Blockchain Digital Assets Conference (FSBDAC) took place on October 19th in Durham, NH. This event brought together some of the top financial tech innovators, researchers, company leaders, and other blockchain enthusiasts to explore topics such as digital assets, securities, cryptocurrencies, and other emerging blockchain applications.
This event had more conventional speakers and panels as well as lots of space to walk around, talk, break into breakout sessions and groups or just to enjoy nature.

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.”
