You have certainly heard about the first edition in Paris (https://breaking-bitcoin.com/otherPages/2017/2017.html) and Building on Bitcoin in Lisboa (https://building-on-bitcoin.com/), we come back this year with a series of event in June in Amsterdam.

- 7 : Conference pre-registration and social meetup,
- 8 to 9: the conference (https://breaking-bitcoin.com/),
- 11 to 13: a dev training (https://breaking-bitcoin.com/otherPages/2019/training.html),
- 14 to 16: Chainhack 4 hackathon (https://blockchain-hackathon.com/). Canceled

Like previous edition, the aim is to organize a technical conference focussed on the Bitcoin protocol security model (+ everything around it) and how to challenge it.

List of speakers and their topics:
- Alexei Zamyatin: Security and Attacks on Decentralized Mining Pools

- Luke Dashjr: TBA
- Omer Shlomovits: Cryptographic Vulnerabilities in Threshold Wallets
- Stepan Snigirev: The Future of Hardware Wallets

Several other talks are reviewed by the programm committee but we are still looking for speakers. If you want to apply or recommend someone, please send us an email to proposals@breaking-bitcoin.com containing :
- Title of the talk
- Abstract, paragraph explaining the context and content
- Previous speaker history if any
- Academic/research paper if any
Have a look to our call for speaker https://breaking-bitcoin.com/otherPages/2019/callForSpeakers.html to get more details
(nb: we cover all travel expenses related to the conference for speakers.)
Talk submission deadline is 17th of April!


The training is led by:
- 11 of June, Stephane Roche will do a technical introduction to Bitcoin (Transactions, Wallets) followed by a workshop on how to do your transactions by hand and with bitcoinjs
- 12 of June, Justin Moon will do a course on how connect to Bitcoin network with an homemade client built in python
- 13 of June, Michael Folkson, interaction with lightning network (and more TBE) and LND in Go.

The Chainhack 4 hackathon is a more general hackathon (ie, not exclusively Bitcoin) with 18'000€ cash price to win. Canceled

In order to keep the price of the conference and the training very low we are looking for sponsors. Have a look to our https://breaking-bitcoin.com/otherPages/2019/sponsorUs.html if your company might be interested to support us!

Hi OP, really good to see an event focused purely on Bitcoin. Think just looking at the names of the speakers gives me a lot of new (to me) faces to look up. How many of these are core devs, if that information's available? Chris Belcher's wiki article last month on Bitcoin privacy will probably be discussed again, am actually surprised there are not more privacy related topics, given that we've gotten over (or are getting over) the hump of scalability;) Or is Belcher covering it all (his article's pretty much what you'd call comprehensive!).

Thx!

For now not that much, but there is still talk in review.

Few other talk are currently evaluated by the program committee about the privacy. As a security oriented conference, we require a highly technical talk and security oriented, which not fit with a lot of proposals. That being said, it's a great topic for our other conference : building on bitcoin.

Added talk of Greg Sanders and Kalle Ale in the topic
