2014 PARALELNÍ POLIS
The fusion of Ztohoven artists and hackers led to the creation of Paralelni Polis in Prague!
A unique place of freedom that promotes ideas of parallel society & crypto technologies. Accepting cryptocurrencies only. Based on original ideas of Vaclav Benda / Charta 77.
At the same time, we started a world's cryptoanarchist conference HCPP!
MANY HACKERS ARE CRYPTOANARCHISTS.
THEY BELIEVE THANKS TO CRYPT TECHNOLOGIES like CRYPTOCURRENCIES, DECENTRALIZATION or ANONYMIZATION, WE CAN ACHIEVE A NEW KIND OF BOTH ECONOMIC AND PERSONAL FREEDOM.
2015-2016 ANOTHER NOTABLE ARTISTIC PROJECT
In Ztohoven we finished the project "President's dirty red pants" and "Decentralization of power."
The goal was to show that any president function is a post-monarchist and obsolete relict. We should not trust society with a dominant alpha-male, and we should call for a decentralization of power.
MANY Hackers have problems with authorities.
WOULD YOU HACK AN OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT OF NORTH KOREA, CHINA OR RUSSIA?
WHERE IS A BORDER OF "ACCEPTED OPPRESSION" according to you?
2017-2019 STATE HACKING
Many hackers decided to become perpetual traveler & state hacker, started to work on their "OPT-OUT" which means:
Switching from bank accounts to cryptocurrencies
Giving up their permanent residency in the EU, obtaining their residency in Panama or Paraguay
Using global health care insurance, global mobile operator
FOLLOWING THE FLAG THEORY
DUE TO POLARIZATION OF the first and second realm, STATE HACKING is becoming more popular:
ACHIEVING BOTH PERSONAL AND ECONOMIC FREEDOM USING GLOBALITY AND FLEXIBILITY
Hacking is a state of mind.
Use technology and knowledge to transform it into state of art
Hacking as a way of life (Žárovky)
