Crypto-Consciousness Conference 2017

Cryptocurrencies and other blockchain technologies might radically change the world, but how will they change us?

Any change to the systems that shape our world, must also impact our inner world - our beliefs, values, sense of identity and beyond.

This conference will bring some of the world’s leading thinkers in the space for a day of talks, open discussion, and expert-led breakout groups to explore how these emerging technologies might elevate consciousness and transform the human experience.

Here are some questions we'll be delving into:

-> How might cryptocurrency/blockchain technology impact individual and collective consciousness?
-> How would a global shift in how we exchange value alter our sense oftrust and connection to humanity?
-> How does the greed partly fueling the emerging industry impact the ecosystem, and alter what might emerge?
-> How does greed impact and alter the ecosystem?
-> Can we tie currency to psychological wellbeing or mental health?
-> What are the implications of the distribution of power, re-distribution of wealth, restructured political, organizational and econimic system?

The Crypto-Consciousness Conference aims to set the stage for an ongoing conversation and community, pondering how these emerging technologies might influence the heart and soul of humanity.
