Crypto Castle Symposium 2022

2nd to 4th September 2022



Depolarize – Keep Communication

Everything has changed with the Internet, which has greatly decentralised the media space. Communities tied to a physical place or nation have lost their importance, and their function has been replaced by parallel virtual communities.

People who might never have met in the past are now forming powerful digital tribes. As in the past, tribes that did not communicate or spoke different languages used to fight or hate each other. Conversely, communication, common language and trade maintained friendly relations between tribes.

Communication was key, providing feedback and needed explanations. Its absence or censorship causes tribes to lose touch with each other, become radicalized and locked in their own opinion bubble.

In the 21st century, Western states believe that it is censorship that can reduce the polarization of society. Not realising the completely opposite effect. For by blocking information, it stops vital communication between tribes. Causing a further deepening of the opinion bubble. And radicalisation without feedback.

Which at best leads to collective madness, at worst to dehumanisation and war. And then there will be no one left to say it was all a big mistake.

At a time when information exchange is at its easiest, we need to listen the most. Keep the communication (going).

In the middle of Germany Schloss Zeit is creating a place that is exemplary for sustainable, social and culturally diverse coexistence and work. Together with the residents, actors from the region and impulses from Berlin international, we are transforming an iconic castle in Sachsen-Anhalt region from a forgotten relic into a modern Utopia

One of the goals is to use the castle and its outbuildings as a co-living platform for travelers.

Castle stays can be booked from 3 hours (for meetings) up to 3 months for those wanting to immerse themselves in the vibrant tech community and retreat from the city, with a onsite chef and program of activities to keep the members entertained.
