Miami is positioning itself as the cryptocurrency capital of the world — and over recent years, the Florida city has become a favorite destination for impactful summits and conferences.
Now that it’s home to Bitcoin 2022, CryptoWorldCon, Metaverse Miami, and the North American Bitcoin Conference, the sun-kissed city has a major new corporate event for the sector to look forward to.
The inaugural MiamiWeb3 Summit is scheduled to take place November 28-30, 2022, and will be at the InterContinental Miami. What makes this event different is that it is organized by the city itself – together with infrastructure provider Web3 Atlas and parent company CTH Group.
It is billed as the first event of its kind in the region, and in preface to the importance of this summit, the premise is simple: Web3 is changing our lives at an extraordinary pace. With high-profile institutional participants, the event is expected to drive meaningful discussions and a way forward for the industry as a whole.
MiamiWeb3 is organized by CTH Group, which bills itself as a leader in blockchain infrastructure, venture capital investment and digital asset management. Its notable investments include the likes of Binance.US, Chainlink, Coinbase, and Polkadot. Meanwhile, Atlas is one of the world’s leading and fastest growing Web3 infrastructure companies with data centers around the world running nodes for over 100 protocols. Together, they will bring together the Web3 ecosystem at this summit.
Atlas wants to create an important platform where pressing trends and topics related to the Web3 revolution can be discussed – whether that involves building infrastructure and protocols, unlocking new business models, or maximizing the positive impact of this critical technology on environmental, social and corporate governance.
Well-known startup founders, government officials, and prominent investors will also gather to discuss how Web3 can contribute to the adoption of clean energy—and provide a better foundation for fair and equitable growth for the world.
Overall, more than 1,000 delegates are expected to attend – with high-level guests traveling from all over the world – and the organizers plan to release the full agenda, along with details of the keynote speakers, in the coming months.
We change our lives
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, an outspoken Bitcoin supporter who previously made a portion of his salary in cryptocurrency, said he was “thrilled” to welcome the summit to his city — and it was an honor to be chosen.
“Web3 is already changing our daily lives and the future of the global economy,” Suarez added. “Miami is now at the forefront of this revolution, and this annual Web3 conference—strategically concurrent with Art Basel Miami festival—will keep Miami at the strategic forefront of Web3 technology in the years to come.”
And Raymond Yuan, founder and chairman of Atlas Corporation, declared that the “once in a generation leap” from Web2 to Web3 is now in full swing.
“Investment is growing rapidly, as is the number of developers, projects and institutions in the ecosystem,” he said. “As a company focused on supporting the future of Web3, we believe it is important to bring the ecosystem together to discuss its development and shape it in a sustainable and equitable way. There is no better place to do this than Miami, which is fast becoming the hub of Web3.”

Enthusiasts got a taste of what to expect when Atlas held its Building Web3 Preview Summit in Austin, Texas, as a side event that launched this year’s Consensus. Leaders from Polygon and Solana were among the speakers – offering their insights into the challenges facing the sector and what investors need to be aware of on the big trends.
Looking beyond this event, the company plans to “double develop the local Web3 industry” – teaming up with government officials and embarking on a hiring spree across the US and abroad.
Atlas sees itself as “the business backbone of the Web3 protocol” – powering the ecosystem by providing a full set of infrastructure for over 100 protocols. In doing so, the company aims to provide much needed stability and sustainability.
From decentralized identities to true ownership of data, from community-supported projects to taking on tech giants, there will be a lot to discuss at MiamiWeb3.
