Bitcoin Academy 

The Bitcoin Academy will run on October 4 and 5 at the New World Theater in Miami Beach, Florida. It will be one of three main programming tracks at the 2021 Oslo Freedom Forum alongside Theater and Interactive, taking place in a dedicated Bitcoin Room.

World-class Bitcoin educators, entrepreneurs, engineers, and digital security experts will meet human rights activists, journalists, policymakers, philanthropists, and creatives to give examples of Bitcoin use around the world and show how to use Bitcoin as safely and securely as possible.

Programming will focus on global Bitcoin adoption, the political history of Bitcoin, getting hands-on with the Lightning Network, learning how to receive donations and income in Bitcoin, learning how to spend your Bitcoin, learning how to sell Bitcoin for fiat currency, learning how to use Bitcoin privately, learning about leveling up your security with multi-sig, discussing who controls Bitcoin, why Bitcoin mining is important, and sharing lessons from El Zonte about how to build a Bitcoin community.

The Oslo Freedom Forum is a program of the Human Rights Foundation and is made possible in part thanks to the ongoing generous support of sponsors such as the Sergey Brin Family Foundation, the John Templeton Foundation, the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Twitter, the City of Oslo, Kavli Trust, Unlikely Collaborators, and Amazon.

High-profile summits aren't just for glitzy politicians and jet setters anymore. Activists, journalists, artists, and dissidents meet in Oslo to share revolutionary ideas.
