Bloomberg News on Friday reports that the Bitcoin 2021 conference in Miami last week with around 12,000 in attendance apparently turned out to be a Covid hot spot.

Larry Cermak, research director at the Block, a cryptocurrency news and information website, said he hadn’t gotten it, but “everyone” whom he hung out with during the three days of conferencing and partying did.

Bitcoin has developed a unqiue culture unto itself marked by a sort of macho, antiauthority ethos, writes Jonathan Levin of Bloomberg.

The Miami conference had no vaccine verification and masking was rare.

“Vaccines have been freely available for months in the US, to the extent that anyone who wanted to be vaccinated could do so by the time of the event,” organizer BTC Media said in a statement. “We provided all attendees with the current recommendations of the CDC and State of Florida and expressed to our audience that those who were high risk or hadn’t been vaccinated should consider waiting until next year.”
