About Paralelna Polis
Do you want to have your own tribe in Bratislava, where you can find people who do care about liberty, are interested in Bitcoin or make parallels to existing societal problems solutions? There is such a place in Prague, being called Paralelní Polis. In the beginning of 2018 we are going to open such place in Bratislava.
Café, where you can pay only in cryptocurrencies. And it has fantastic coffee and biohacking upgrades. Bitcoin Coffee is a place where meetings happen. Either scheduled or by chance, our goal is that you leave everytime inspired and full of new thoughts, knowledge and ideas.
More than just coworking space. If you want to do anything associated with freedom, decentralization, Bitcoin, blockchain or so, there is no better place than this one. Very probably, somebody who you can learn from sits just at the next table. The place is tuned for being productive.
Institute of Cryptoanarchy
Institute of Cryptoanarchy is a place in which we research (crypto hackespace), study (lectures, both regular and irregular programme) and connect people (Paralelna Polis Club). Apart for other venues, Institute hosts regular Bitcoin meetups, Ethereum meetups and biohacking sessions.
What does it mean that we are making Paralelna Polis?
We create free and inspiring environment by spreading ideas and tools for independent and voluntary society.
We are sensing the paradigm shift to new societal problems solutions based on decentralization, sharing economy, reputation systems, cryptocurrencies, censorship resistance and both economical and personal freedom restrictions avoidance.
Bitcoin, blockchain, reputation systems and decentralized technologies are creating a parallel free society based on different principles compared to traditional hierarchic centralized system (fiat money, registries, licenses). A parallel society represents functional and effective solution of existing problems in society and it can coexist with standing system.
Technologies offer new, just recently existing solutions to many complex problems in society. We experiment with these technologies and apply them to praxis.
How far in progress are we?
Civic association named PARALELNÁ POLIS is successfully registered, we are negotiating rental conditions while already having interior design for that place ready. And many other things and especially a determined team full of wonderful people. Join us!
Will it be near by hand? Where is it placed?
The place´s address is Kominárska 3A (OpenStreet Map location), about 5 mins walk from tram/bus stop Račianske mýto or about 2.5 mins walk from tram/bus stop Trnavské Mýto.
