- Taking place on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands from the 25th to 28th, Branson's event will feature discussions moderated by Hernando De Soto, president of the Institute for Liberty and Democracy, Wall Street Journal senior columnist Michael J Casey and Matthew Bishop, US business editor for The Economist.
- In total, the event will include 30 luminaries from the bitcoin and larger digital currency space, including bitcoin core developer Jeff Garzik, Bitreserve's Juan Llanos, Tally Capital's Matthew Roszak and entrepreneur and Bitcoin Foundation chairman Brock Pierce.
- The event is also the latest high-profile bitcoin conference to be held in the Caribbean following the Satoshi Roundtable in February. That conference, organised by recently-elected Bitcoin Foundation executive director Bruce Fenton, sparked controversy for its exclusive guest list and "secretive" itinerary.
