CoinFest started in 2013 as a relatively small gathering of 100 or so Bitcoiners, celebrating the adoption of Bitcoin at a Waves Coffee House in Vancouver.
By 2014, CoinFest was growing in popularity, and that year it took a new direction: CoinFest spread across Canada and now internationally, exemplifying the border-defying and decentralized nature of crypto.
In 2016 CryptoBatesGroup brought CoinFest to the UK for the first time. Hosted and organised by Adam Rizvi and held in Manchester, the event attracted more than 200 people. The CoinFestUK 2017 event was hosted on April 7th & 8th 2017 at the Manchester Conference Centre. The event was a great success and was very well received. We hosted 5 workshops, 19 speakers and 11 exhibitions and had visitors from around the world.
