Moreover, El Salvador’s President, Nayib Bukele, produced one of the standout moments from the event last year. Making a virtual appearance, he confirmed that his country would move to make crypto a legal tender. As a result, El Salvador was one of the earliest nations to embrace crypto.

How Will the Bitcoin Price React to Miami’s Conference?
There are several questions about the Miami Conference’s possible impact on the BTC price. First, the conference would undoubtedly impact Bitcoin’s future, but should users expect a dip during the conference? Bitcoin witnessed a mild resurgence in March, but the token is down 4.3% in the last 24 hours as of writing this article.
The coming days will be critical for the blockchain community. With the Fed breathing down on the community’s neck with threats of regulations, this could be the moment the market gains a new direction.
BTC Price Outlook
According to CoinGecko, Bitcoin trades at $43,392.22 as of this writing. Also, Bitcoin is still miles away from its all-time high of $68,990. Furthermore, the current price might not be seeing a pump while the Bitcoin Conference is going on.
Historically, Bitcoin price dips during a conference. As expected, many whales and active buyers are part of the conference. As a result, there is a reduced market activity during the conference. Bitcoin Conference 2022 is a deciding moment for digital currency.
