Heraklion Integral Cooperative event on Blockchain in Heraklion

If you’re interested in exploring how blockchain can take on a subversive and anti-systemic character in favour of movements and groups that wish to act outside institutional frameworks, the Integral Cooperative of Heraklion (I.C.Her) is organizing an open event on blockchain on Friday, June 7, in Heraklion-Crete. (For more background info on the I.C.Her, see this short article by Heteropolitics researcher George Dafermos). The event, which will be hosted at Da, will look at blockchain’s radical features and discuss its potential effect on the mode of organization of society.
