Crypto Bahamas 2023 announced, intends to ‘take over’ Baha Mar

Crypto Bahamas doubled down on one of its founders’ hope to buy out Baha Mar’s rooms for the next crypto convention, contending in a statement that the 2023 Crypto Bahamas event will “take over the entire Baha Mar resort”.

During the inaugural Crypto Bahamas event in April, Anthony Scaramucci, founder of global thought leadership forum SALT, told the media that he wants to “take the entire hotel next year”.

SALT teamed up with Bahamas-based cryptocurrency exchange FTX to host the conference in The Bahamas this year. The event attracted 2,000 visitors.

The SALT and FTX statement revealed that Crypto Bahamas 2023 is expected to take place April 18-21.

Chief Executive Officer of FTX Sam Bankman-Fried said in the statement that next year’s conference will be bigger and better.

“We’re excited to welcome the crypto community back to The Bahamas in 2023,” said Bankman-Fried.

“Our inaugural Crypto Bahamas conference was a huge success and brought some of the biggest innovators in the industry to the island, to collaborate on TradFi, crypto and DeFi.”

Like this year, the statement explained, the conference will be invitation-only and once again feature some of the world’s leading investors and builders in the digital assets space.

In the statement, Scaramucci said SALT and FTX are excited to build on what they created this year and grow the event into the premier digital assets event in the world.

“FTX is a transformative company and we look forward to continue working with them to foster innovation in web3,” said Scaramucci.

Crypto Bahamas 2022 featured speakers such as Prime Minister Philip “Brave” Davis, former US President Bill Clinton, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, and NFL quarterback Tom Brady.

Last week, Baha Mar President Graeme Davis told Guardian Business that the resort’s group bookings for 2023 are outpacing all previous years.

He explained then that the important group segment of Baha Mar’s business continues to strengthen since the reopening of the resort amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
