about us

At our physical center in Barcelona we are developing projects to emancipate people from old hierarchies into a new system: one that is decentralised, efficient, and based on crypto-economics.

A parallel society represents functional and effective solution to existing problems in society and it can coexist with the current system. Technology can be used to enslave people, but it also is the key to freedom. 

Bitcoin, blockchain and decentralized technologies are creating a parallel free society based on alternative principles, away from traditional hierarchical and centralised systems (such as fiat money, registries, and licenses).

who are we

ACADEMY

The academy is the educational branch of our organization and its philosophical core. While cryptocurrency has inspired waves of young, talented programmers into its ranks, it lacks the structures to support their development. The academy offers a place for these people, to nurture them into leaders of a new technological paradigm.

THINK TANK

Consisting of graduates from the Polytech academy, the Polytech think-tank conducts sociological, geopolitical and economic research to identify macro trends across nations and societies: to anticipate and make use of them.

INCUBATOR

The Polytech incubator offers investment, consulting and strategic partnerships to startups and early-stage companies. Its aim is to support the ambitious and inspired teams, and to provide the necessary guidance to get projects off the ground. Projects supported by the Polytech incubator will also have access to the hacklab's services.

RESEARCH LAB

Our technical research arm, the research lab explores new technical solutions, working closely with the think-tank to identify key areas to pursue. Concepts tested by the research lab will later be integrated into products.

HACK LAB

A sub-branch of the research lab, the hacklab provides the link between concepts and products. Fully equipped with fast internet, sys-admin support and hardware, the hack lab is a meeting place where teams come together to realize ideas. The hacklab also offers apprenticeship positions for aspiring programmers.

EVENTS

The Polytech event series brings together key thinkers from the cutting edge of technology, philosophy and politics. Through conferences, lectures and seminars, Polytech seeks to elevate the culture of the cryptocurrency community and develop organized, strategic thinkers.
