CryptoPsychedelic: The Intersections of Psychedelic Science and Blockchain Technology

How are cryptocurrency, blockchain, and decentralization changing money and more? How does this intersect with the world of psychedelics?

Join us as we explore how these communities can work together to ensure a brighter future and achieve common goals. What are the new possibilities in research, innovation, and community building? What are the potential benefits and risks associated with each technology, and what is the role of intention and context (i.e., set and setting)? How can cryptocurrency help fundraising to end harms of the drug war and advance psychedelic therapy? How can blockchain be used to support safe, ethical treatment, accountability, and responsibility? What is the appropriate role of government regulation in crypto and drugs?

How do these two powerful technologies and their respective communities mirror one another? We'll dive into issues of diversity and inclusion with respect to leadership and access to the benefits and explore what a decentralized post-prohibition world looks like.
