In an era of mass, suspicionless surveillance and digital capitalism fuelled by our private information, CRYPTOPARTY puts power and privacy back in the people's hands.

Come for free workshops on how to protect yourself in digital spaces.

Stay for crypto-themed cocktails, local craft beer, music, visuals and high spirits.

All are warmly welcome - total beginners are particularly welcome, as are expert helpers and cryptoangels.
