Hackers Congress Paralelní Polis

6. - 8.10. 2017 / Prague

About HCPP18 - New Order

All-out strong polarization. Repeating tension between collectivists and individuals.
This time with a new difference: Crypto technologies. Liberating us.
Making us entirely responsible for all our decisions.

Decentralization, reputation systems, escrow services and anonymization makes the world's economy more efficient.
The massive adoption of free crypto markets will not be the result of people's need for freedom or privacy. It will be the result of their natural individual preferences.

Collectivism is new slavery. Crypto-anarchists are new abolitionists. Crypto technologies are new arms.

The natural order is the new order.

Organizer

Paralelní Polis is a one-­of-­a-­kind nonprofit organization that brings together art, social sciences, and modern technologies. The ideas of liberty, independence, and innovative thinking and development of society are the main underlying foundations the whole project is built upon.

The project intends to remain state free as it operates entirely without support from the government, and most of the funds come from voluntary contributions of our donors and partly from commercial activities such as running a unique co­working space and the world's first bitcoin-­only cafe.

It was founded by members of a contemporary-­art group Ztohoven, and Slovak and Czech hacker­spaces. Its main goal is to promote economic, social and digital freedom. We try to be a vocal voice of freedom in order to shape the public discourse, and ultimately work towards a freer future.
