- The event will be part of a larger conference, World 2022, which will also include talks on data analytics.
Jack Dorsey, chief executive officer of financial services firm Block, formerly known as Square, will speak alongside MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor at the upcoming Bitcoin for Corporations conference, the software intelligence firm announced in a press release Thursday.
MicroStrategy said the two bitcoin bulls will kick off the event with an in-depth talk about the peer-to-peer currency network on Tuesday, February 1 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time. The session will be followed by a Bitcoin Treasury discussion with MicroStrategy President and CFO Phong Le.
“We have accumulated a wealth of experience and expertise in innovating our treasury strategy and evolving our corporate bitcoin acquisition strategy,” Saylor said in the press release. “And we’re excited to be able to share what we know – through this curated event – with companies looking to pursue similar strategies and bold initiatives.”
The upcoming event is the second edition of the annual conference, which extends beyond Bitcoin to include presentations on software analytics, MicroStrategy’s other area of focus. World 2022 is two events in one: Bitcoin for Corporations and Enterprise Analytics.
MicroStrategy said that while Bitcoin for Corporations will “explore the various benefits of integrating Bitcoin into enterprise initiatives,” the Enterprise Analytics event will introduce bold new ways of thinking about analytics and business intelligence, and showcase organizations that have used data as a strategic differentiator .”
World 2022 will be held virtually and for the first time, access to all parts of the conference will be free. Interested participants can register on the event website.
“Participants will become better informed about the critical elements of forward-looking analysis and Bitcoin strategy, better informed about the tools and methods to get started, and more familiar with strategic vendors in the market,” the press release reads.
