This year's edition of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), ongoing from January 6-9 in Las Vegas, will once again have a large Bitcoin presence.

There will be some new exhibitors as well. At last year's event, there was a bigger focus on mining. Participants included Hashfast, Butterfly Labs, KnCMiner, Bitcoin Shop, among others...a lot has happened since then. Returning participants this year include BitPay and    Blockchain  .info.

Other participants include: Bitcoin exchanges Kraken and Bitstamp; Circle, Bitman, Robocoin and yBitcoin. Together, the companies comprise the 2,000 square foot "World of Bitcoin". Said Emily Vaughn, Marketing Manager at BitPay:

"Bitcoin is rapidly redefining financial and commercial paradigms. The showcase represents some of the top talent in bitcoin technology and will provide a unique experience for the 170,000 CES attendees."

With his exchange maintaining a presence at the exhibition, Bitstamp CEO, Nejc Kodrič, is also apparently attending. The exchange recently suffered a major hack, costing it over $5 million worth of bitcoins. Kodrič tweeted:

He also restated: "The bulk of our bitcoin are in    Cold Storage  , and remain completely safe."
