As the April weather heats up, so does Miami’s calendar of events. Considering our city’s welcoming attitude towards Bitcoin transactions, especially at condos like Arte Surfside and E11even Residences Beyond, it is no wonder that the world’s largest Bitcoin conference and first Bitcoin music festival will be taking place here, as part of Tech Month. 

Balancing out all that tech talk will be performances by Justin Bieber and Sir Elton John at the FTX Arena. The Deering Estate will be hosting two seafood events this April – Chefs Table on the Bay & The Deering Seafood Festival. Equestrian sport lovers will be thrilled to see two world-class competitions come to town – the Longines Global Champions Tour and World Polo League. And, don’t forget to catch the last leg of the Miami Open this month.
