After 10 years of evolution, hacks, scams, civil war and breakthroughs, it's time to think about where Bitcoin will go in the next decade. Bitcoin 2019 was the return of Bitcoin's annual conference, an event to push innovation forward, collaborate with old and new friends and reignite the community of permissionless value.
