Adopting Bitcoin Code of Conduct

The following code of conduct applies to all in-person and virtual participants - such as presenters, attendees, guests, sponsors, exhibitors, co-hosts, volunteers, and staff - partaking in Adopting Bitcoin-hosted or co-hosted conferences and while using any Adopting Bitcoin video-conferencing / collaboration technology.

1. Purpose
This Code of Conduct is designed to ensure that all participants at Adopting Bitcoin conferences conduct themselves in a civil and respectful manner and contribute to creating an environment that allows for the open exchange of ideas for the benefit of a healthy bitcoin movement.

2. Photo and Media Policy
It is strictly forbidden to take photos or videos of participants without their consent. Participants will be provided by the conference organizers the means to signal their consent or dissent non-verbally. Be mindful of your peers’ desire to remain private!

3. No Calls for Physical Violence
Adopting Bitcoin expressly prohibits participants from advocating for physical violence, including but not limited to murder, genocide, or violent extremism. Statements made at the conference as well as public statements made outside the confines of the event that promote such violence are grounds for immediate exclusion from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

4. Chatham House Rule
To encourage openness and the sharing of information, the Chatham House Rule applies to all informal discussions and exchanges that occur in the hallways or outside of the official conference stages. Under this rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.

5. Reporting Violations / Contact Information
If you are subject to or witness violations or have any other concerns, please notify a conference organizer. For questions about the Code of Conduct, please contact Kemal Yasar at
