According to the report from CoinDesk, it shows that the world's first decentralized currency features a relatively decentralized geographic investment footprint, with 40% of all VC-backed Bitcoin companies based outside North America. It is also interesting to note that Asia, with several Bitcoin companies, has a sizable lead in terms of its total number of venture-backed VC companies as compared to Europe, which is home to just few companies. Global Bitcoin Summit 2014 is offering a great opportunity to all Bicoin fans to explore the large Chinese market.

The Summit will also feature many outstanding and knowledgeable experts to shed light on Bitcoin future trends in China and abroad, explore how to consolidate or expand existing business, and discuss how to initiate new Bitcoin business. Some featured speakers includes: Li Xiaolai (Funder of Bitfund.pe, the earliest bitcoin related private equities in China); Roger Ver (CEO of MemoryDealers.com & famous bitcoin investor); Aaron Koenig (General Secretary of Global Bitcoin Alliance); Anthony di lorio (Executive Director of Bitcoin Alliance of Canada); Daniel Larimer (Founder of Invictus Innovations); Charles Hoskinson (Founder of Ethereum); Nejc Kodric (CEO of Bitstamp); Chang Jia (Bitcoin enthusiasts, Author of Bitcoin: An imaginary but real world.)
