Parallel Polis

Parallel Polis is a non-governmental non-profit crypto think tank, which was founded in 2014 in Prague by the art activist group Ztohoven as the original hackerspace.

The mission of Parallel Polis is to provide the technology and education that people need to participate in an independent society and to protect individual freedom.

The vision of Parallel Polis is a world where people have the opportunity to separate from the state and live in a free society.
