FREE AND SAFE IN CYBERSPACE EVENT SERIES
Ongoing since 2015, the Free and Safe in Cyberspace event series has been held in Brussels, New York, and Iguazu, Berlin, and last in Geneva on April 9-10th 2019, has attracted amazing world-class speakers. Its sole purpose has been to create a wide consensus on the Trustless Computing Paradigms and the need, feasibility, and nature of a new Trustless Computing Certification Body.
TRUSTLESS.AI is a startup spinoff of the Trustless Computing Association, based in Geneva at the Fintech Fusion accelerator. It is building a standalone 2mm-thin touch-screen human computing device that seamlessly delivers radically-unprecedented of privacy and security to your most sensitive business and personal computing. Initially only for high net-worth individuals, wealth managers and executives, and then embedded as a ultra secure second display in the back of millions of smartphones.
