The upcoming event called The B Word is scheduled to take place on July 21.

Speakers for the event include prominent names like Cathie Wood CEO of ARK Invest, Adam Back CEO of Blockstream and John Newbery Director of Brink.

The global cryptocurrency market capitalisation is $1.29 trillion, down 8.21 percent from the previous day. Bitcoin, the world's largest cryptocurrency, has seen a massive plunge, trading more than 9 percent lower on June 26.

Bitcoin fell below $30,000 earlier this week for the first time since January, down from its high of $64,870 reached in April.
