Five-time boxing champ Floyd Mayweather has joined the list of speakers at Bitcoin 2021, according to a recent announcement.  

The hotly anticipated event will be taking place on June 4-5 in Miami after being moved from Los Angeles earlier this year due to pandemic-related restrictions.   

The names of other top speakers include MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, and Binance U.S. CEO Brian Brooks, and other prominent personalities.
