The Week Ahead: April 4

All the news that's anticipated for this upcoming week

Miami bitcoin spectacular

At the Bitcoin 2022 conference, the crypto universe will converge on Miami. Expect some exciting news—this was the event at which El Salvador President Nayib Bukele declared that his nation would accept bitcoin as legal tender last year. He'll be back in action alongside Peter Thiel, Cathie Wood, and Aaron Rodgers again this year.

SCOTUS confirmation

The Senate is expected to confirm Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson as the first African-American woman to serve on the Supreme Court as early as Thursday. She'll need a simple majority in the Senate, and she's anticipated to get support from all Democratic senators while at least one Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, will lend her support.

France heads to the polls

Emmanuel Macron, the French president, is seeking a second term in office but has urged supporters to take Marine Le Pen's presidential bid seriously. On Sunday, the initial round of voting will begin.

Everything else:

  • The Masters Golf Championship begins Thursday. Tiger Woods said he's a "game-time decision."
  • Opening Day of the MLB season is on Thursday.
  • Tuesday is National Deep Dish Pizza Day (as if you need a reason to eat pizza)
