The web3 community continues to refine its understanding of self-sovereign systems. From the technical details of new age computation and storage to philosophical and ethical questions about transparency, privacy, and consent, the community is in the midst of an intense, healthy debate surrounding the benefits and repercussions of off-chain vs on-chain data.

Join a small, curated group of experts and curious thinkers in Paris on Wednesday, July 20th from 15:00–18:30 in an engaging set of sessions addressing these questions:

Lightning talks and group discussion with:
