Crypto Party! - party hard!


    CryptoParty - crypto from the Greek κρυπτός, “secret, hidden” and party - “political party” or “party”.

    Crypto Party! - This is a workshop whose goal is to get participants real experience in organizing trustful communication channels using modern data encryption technologies and replicating this experience.


    The movement is based on a powerful foundation created by cipher banks of the 90s. They also actively supported and promote it.

    The parent of the format is an activist under the pseudonym Asher Wolfe and his friend m1k3y . They came up with parties at which people would share security and anonymity technologies and knowledge with each other.

    The movement became viral and more than 70 ( 2012 , 2013 ) parties all over the world have already passed in a year and a half .

    An activist handbook is available in English .
