Da Nang, Vietnam:  The beautiful city of Da Nang, Vietnam which some have dubbed “Bitcoin Beach Vietnam” will play host to Asia’s first bitcoin & lightning network conference in the region. Neutronpay, BitcoinVN and Nunchuk who are all Vietnam based bitcoin-only companies are excited to share what is happening in Asia as it relates to bitcoin projects, bitcoin communities and lightning adoption across the region. The conference will take place March 22-24, 2023 at the beautiful beachside Furama Resort.

Founder & CEO Albert Buu of Neutronpay, who is Vietnamese-Canadian had this to say, “I am thrilled to announce our company is leading the charge for the Bitcoin Lightning Network in Southeast Asia. Our vision is to showcase the region's growth and potential, and Lightningcon is the first event of its kind to highlight emerging markets in Asia that have been overlooked in the Bitcoin ecosystem.
Our mission is to create a platform that encourages and supports the growth of Bitcoin and Lightning in the region, while emphasizing the diversity in representation to showcase the potential of the entire region. We are confident this event will not only inspire growth and innovation in the industry but also positively impact the lives of people in the region. 
We are excited to bring together prominent Bitcoiners from various countries in South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, and Vietnam, who will share their insights and experiences to amplify the message that Asia is making waves in the Bitcoin ecosystem.”

Malcolm Weed, COO of Neutronpay, who is the event main organizer had this to say, “We’re extremely excited to be putting on the world's first bitcoin & lightning event in Asia. Bitcoin adoption is very strong across the region with countries like Vietnam(1), Philippines(2), India(4), Pakistan(6), Thailand(8), and China(10) all being in the top 10 global rankings for bitcoin adoption, making it the world's bitcoin epicenter. With over 4B people in Asia, representing half the world's population, 70% of which are unbanked, it is no wonder bitcoin adoption is so strong.”

The event will kick-off with a beach meet & greet on the evening of March 22, followed by two days of speakers sharing the latest developments across the bitcoin ecosystem, touching on both the technological and the economic aspects. There will also be a strong representation of companies which are building on the lightning network and will share the current state of affairs and what exciting things are currently being worked on. As is the case with most events there will be major new announcements so stay tuned for live tweeting from the event as they happen.

There will only be 500 attendees so tickets are limited. General admission two-day passes are currently at $375, with ticket prices going up again on March 1. The non-profit event can be accessed by local Vietnamese at a preferential price of $35 and we highly encourage as many locals to come and learn about the technology, but also meet local Vietnamese companies building on bitcoin and lightning.

If you are a local Vietnamese software developer and are interested in working with the lightning network then please reach out as we’re always looking for more great talent to join the team. [email protected]

As a reminder, this is a BITCOIN ONLY event. There will be no content as it relates to NFTs, Metaverse, Web3, Token sales and all that other nonsense.

We still have a few spots left for speakers, moderators, volunteers, sponsors and media so if that is of interest to you please reach out to [email protected]
