Hackers Congress Paralelní Polis

6. - 8.10. 2017 / Prague

About HCPP17 - Liberate!

In the view of ongoing global war on cash and tightening financial regulations, we have chosen the topic of Hackers Congress Paralelni Polis 2017 to be the financial and economic freedom.

Real digital privacy starts with protecting your financial transactions. Leaving no traces. Making impossible to see or intervene your voluntary economic interactions. With the rise of anonymous cryptocurrencies, for the first time in our human history, we can do a global business and stay anonymous.
Anonymous prediction markets, anonymous anti-government insurance, anonymous crowdfunded whistleblowing, decentralized cryptomarkets, anonymous perfect corruption - all these crypto technologies will undermine the current authoritative systems.
And make the significant change. Silently. With no violence or politicians. It's time. Liberate yourself!

Join us at the 4rd Hackers Congress Paralelni Polis with hundreds of freedom enthusiasts, tech-entrepreneurs, activists, artists and cryptoanarchists to celebrate the age of digital freedom and decentralization!

The congress program starts on Friday, 6th October at 13:00 and ends on Sunday, 8th October at 18:00. The venue opens at 9:00 each day. Official laguage is English.

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 be a vocal voice of freedom in order to shape the public discourse, and ultimately work towards a freer future.
