Some highlights include a workshop tackling the Lightning Network, a scaling solution that could bring Bitcoin to the masses; a workshop on how to circumvent surveillance by the very banksters that populate the great city of Frankfurt; arts and memes with the grandmaster of memetics; panel discussions between the roaring dinosaurs of financial legacy and the proponents of a new monetary freedom and individual sovereignty; last but not least as an opening concert of this festival, the third annual edition of the UNCHAIN Convention.
