“We’re delighted to be able to launch HCPP TV and deliver HCPP’s unique content and thoughtful insights to our community of cypherpunks and activists around the globe. The previous six congresses have sold out months in advance. The current global situation provides us with the opportunity to open the congress to new audiences that might not otherwise have been able to make it to Prague.”
