Last weekend I was invited to speak at Paris P2P Festival #0, a French (Paris and Lyon!) community around P2P and cryptography technology:
It was a 5 days festival with very interesting projects and talks.
Some highlights very close to our principles:
- Berty, a secure, private, decentralized and open-source messenger (ring a bell?): https://berty.tech/ (and protocol for the VacP2P team: https://berty.tech/docs/protocol/) (talk: https://p2p.paris/en/talks/maintream-intro-berty-protocol/)
- How Can Journalists Protect their Sources Today: https://p2p.paris/en/talks/journalists-sources-protection/
