The Network State

A lecture series in virtual reality


Our goal is not merely to describe what a network state looks like but to actually build the first one, an open source project we're calling 1729.

If you are interested in mathematics, cryptocurrencies, seasteading, transhumanism, space travel, life extension, and initially-crazy-seeming-but-technologically-feasible ideas, you should enjoy this.

Just a few years ago it was considered impossible to start a new global currency. Now anyone can do it from a laptop. We are looking for the kinds of people who are interested in extending the ideas behind cryptocurrencies to cryptocountries.
