As the coronavirus continues to spread across the globe (and no, it’s not related to Corona beer, if you’re one of the 38% in a poll that said you would not order a Mexican Corona beer now “under any circumstances”), large gatherings and events have been cancelled as each country grapples with how to contain the virus.
The crypto community has been hit hard in certain ways unique to its occasionally troll-y nature — moral issues arose with the appearance of a CoronaCoin “backed by proof of death” alongside Corona Babies digital collectibles, and media outlets have run amok with headlines like “Is the Coronavirus The Black Swan Event That Crushes Cryptocurrency?” as they try to connect the virus with Bitcoin’s recent drop below $6,000.
But most importantly to some, crypto conferences fall under the heading of those large gatherings that are being cancelled and postponed worldwide.
For those crypto conference enthusiasts, CoinMarketCap has assembled a list of the conferences in the crypto space that will (and will not!) go on in this new coronavirus era.
Keep in mind that while some of these conferences may be cancelled for now, expect a flood of postponed conferences to be taking place in Q3 2020 and later!
