Keynote
You Are a Bitcoiner Now, What's Next?
Swallowing the orange pill is only the beginning. What comes next has very little to do with the exchange rate or your wealth. What bitcoin gives you is a new outlook on life. Suddenly, you notice hierarchies are not required for most relationships. A decentralized network works — tick tock next block — without the need of a central planner. How does it impact you and how you can participate in this revolution by changing your life? What “jobs” are there, and what can you do? How do you help others? How do you enter — not only financially, but fully — to the orange bitcoin world?

Back to Cypherpunk
This panel full of masked people will revisit the cypherpunk ethos, the one which bitcoin was born from, exploring its principles and how they continue to influence the development and philosophy of bitcoin. We will discuss the historical context of the cypherpunk movement, its impact on bitcoin, and its relevance in today's digital age.
