Join us for an evening of revolution and crypto politics at The Cube! The agenda will be:

– Amir Taaki will talk to us about his “Five year plan for a worldwide crypto movement”. Amir is a British-Iranian anarchist revolutionary, hacktivist, and programmer who is known for his leading role in the bitcoin project, and for pioneering many open source projects. Forbes listed Taaki in their top 30 entrepreneurs of 2014. Driven by the political philosophy of the Rojava revolution, Taaki traveled to Syria, served in the YPG military, and worked in Rojava’s civil society on various economic projects for a year and a half.

– Rachel Rose O’Leary, Coindesk reporter, will talk to us about “The politics and history of cryptocurrency consensus mechanisms”. You can read Rachel’s articles on Ethereum and other topics at https://www.coindesk.com/author/rachelroseoleary/

Both presentations will be in-person and in English. Please note this meetup is at The Cube and not at the Orange Grove.

If you never had any cryptocurrency, please install any Bitcoin wallet on your phone or tablet and we will give you a small amount of Bitcoin. You can try the Coinomi (https://coinomi.com) wallet for iOS and Android.

After the event we will move to Mironi tavern (https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g189400-d14072280-Reviews-MIRONI_Greek_Restaurant-Athens_Attica.html) for food & drinks.
