About Event

Simply the biggest web3 x privacy gathering in Italy with speakers from the USA, Spain, the Czech Republic, Germany, Ukraine, Netherlands, Italy, Israel. We focus on the future of the internet & privacy's core role in it.

Privacy is a key topic in the internet. Both Big Tech like Apple or Meta, governments from the USA to Italy, and open tech like Ethereum dedicate lots of efforts & investments into the privacy market.

Meanwhile, the privacy community is highly scattered around continents, software or beliefs & there's no consensus on the topic. Corporations want to continue selling human data via surveillance capitalism business models, while governments oppose GDPR-alike laws on data management.

Web3Privacy now creates an open platform for discussing cutting-edge solutions to privacy management, payments, identity, decentralised organisations, and secured online storage via the web3 umbrella.

Visit our Community 1st Rome gathering & receive answers to the critical questions:

  • How to make the internet a safe place?

  • What are the different takes on privacy (corporate, government, open-source community)?

  • What tools do we need to build network-level privacy?

  • What's the role of cryptography in data safety?

  • How cross-actor collaboration could happen?

  • How can we balance between open-source culture & financial sustainability behind projects?

  • How can we onboard 100K developers & 10M users behind privacy tech?

Tooling, resources, people 🧩
We will focus on what matters most for the privacy progress.
