Highlights from Blockstack Berlin

Blockchain and Bitcoin “mania” has died down since December — and I couldn’t be more excited!

Bitcoin is nearing a three month low sitting around $7,000. But beneath noisy conversations about the day-to-day price of crypto, developers have been busy building the next version of the internet.

What’s the news?

Last month over a dozen of the top minds in crypto got together in Berlin to discuss the future of the internet and blockchain. The conference was organized by One Month teacher Dr. Muneeb Ali in partnership with his company Blockstack.

What is Blockstack?

In short, a new internet. With Blockstack’s internet connection…

  • You own all your own data
    (not Facebook)
  • You control access to your data
    (the NSA and ISPs can’t snoop on you).
  • You won’t have to remember dozens of passwords.
    (Blockstack has one password that is linked to your identity and can be used across hundreds of apps.)

Where can I watch the Blockstack Berlin highlights?
