A Return to Cypherpunk Values
Sterlin Lujan

Going to provide a talk on returning to cypher punk values and discarding the crypto casino mentality. I will explain what "cypherpunk" means and why the crypto casino does not align with those anti-establishment and anti-authoritarian values. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss the importance of developing a "dark forest" infrastructure, a la Dark Fi, and how to protect ourselves as we push forward for greater and greater freedom, both online and in the meat space. In the final part of the talk, I will discuss what the unification of all "punk" values could look like and why this type of unification is critical.
