Energizing Bitcoin

March 26 – 27th, 2024 | 713 Music Hall in Houston, TX

We're Bringing Bitcoin Mining to the Energy Capital of the World

Energy + Bitcoin Mining

Empower is the only bitcoin mining event with a focus on energy — bringing together energy, mining, finance, and other professionals in the city that powers the world. We are getting everyone together at 713 Music Hall, by the Post in Houston, where you will get to learn and network with energy producers, capital groups, miners, and other builders in the space.

The Biggest Names On Stage

High performance computing is one of the fastest growing industries right now, and will continue to grow as technology requires more power. From data centers to bitcoin mining, energy companies are now becoming tech companies and vice versa. Don’t fall behind and join the biggest names in the space to learn about how to optimize oilfield power generation, economics of co-locating with miners or data centers, and much more. There will be content that everyone can learn from regardless of background or experience.

Outside of the Content

We’re big believers at getting smart people together and allowing collisions to happen – these collisions are the catalyst for ideas, collaboration, and progress. You will have the opportunity to hang out with other like-minded people in a fun environment with DW vibe networking during the event, a fun after party, and free beer.
