The Baltic Honeybadger conference is a major Bitcoin event in both Latvia and the world, dedicated to Bitcoin and technologies built around it. Our goal is to create an educational and community-driven event with high-profile speakers from all around the world and with different backgrounds — from technical engineers and cybersecurity professionals to business owners and bestselling authors.
Over the two years of its existence it attracted the most talented, driven and passionate Bitcoiners from around the world and has established itself as one of the leading conferences worldwide.
The Baltic Honeybadger conference is driven by the cypherpunk movement. We're not promoting various so called altcoins, ICOs, banks and other blockchain-based "snake oil".
The conference is held for 2 days with a packed schedule of talks, 1 on 1s and panels, culminating in an chill informal afterparty-patio outside, where people can drink beer (or wine, if you prefer), enjoy an informal conversation and meet new friends.
