Hackers Congress Paralelní Polis

30.9. - 2.10. 2016 / Prague

About HCPP16

The concept of authoritative state is gradually becoming obsolete. The rise of sharing economies with reputation models, digital contracts and cryptocurrencies makes the role of central governments useless. In this era, you might share more with random people from other parts of the world than you do with your neighbors.

Come and join us at the 3rd Hackers Congress Paralelní Polis with hundreds of technology enthusiasts, tech-entrepreneurs, activists and cryptoanarchists to celebrate the age of digital freedom and decentralization!

Organizer

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

The project intents 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 works towards a freer future.
