BUILDING BRIGHTER
unstoppable WEBZ

Let's try not to f* up this time

what are we going to do about it?

From March 1-21, artists, gamers, developers, activists, crypto and non-crypto people can come together

Imagine a society where human rights are respected and your data is not used against you to influence what you think.

Join other like-minded artists, gamers, developers, activists, crypto enthusiasts, the curious, and the knowledgeable. Together, you can explore the power of art, blockchain, and games to create a fair and ethical, private, censorship-free, permissionless and unstoppable Web3. We are a force that makes the world a better, more accessible, more connected, and more enjoyable place.

This is your call to adventure.

Why WAM

Why WAM

A pledge for a fair internet where users control their own data, identity and destiny.

  • We are millions demanding digital freedom.

  • Freedom in a digital society requires privacy.

  • Freedom in a digital society requires data sovereignty.

  • Data sovereignty is only possible without walled gardens. Interoperability is key.

  • We cannot expect governments, corporations, or other large, faceless organisations to grant freedom to our data out of their beneficence.

  • We want to live in a fair data society, not under surveillance capitalism.

  • For this to happen, We must come together and create systems which empower individuals.

  • We must build ethical solutions which respect human rights and put the individual in full control of their identity, data and assets.

  • We are united as one swarm. Inspired by cypherpunks, aligned with #PLUR, guided by virtue and reason, we walk our talk.

  • We are like the fingers of one hand. What one does somehow affects the others and most likely we won't even know. In unity, each one is part of something greater than self.

  • We are a rhizome, our actions have a rhizomatic effect.

  • For unity to be possible, treat others as you would be like to be treated (aka golden rule). #PLUR

  • There's no peace, love or unity without respect. Start here.

  • Respect.

  • We are millions building a better Web.

  • We are millions building a free and fair future.

  • Let us proceed together apace.

  • Onward.

Learn and explore impactful new technologies

For three weeks in March, learn together through talks and workshops. Host a talk, share your wisdom.

Game mechanics and playful alliances

Expect worthless NFT drops that will hopefully make the experience priceless and soul-bound. Expect 'Resistance'. You might come for the loot, but hopefully you’ll stay for the community and shared purpose.

DAOs to spark collaboration

With you as a founding member (maybe those NFTs won’t be totally worthless after all). A DAO that supports an ethical Web3, that enables new initiatives which will build a free digital world, that predicts the future of a fair data society.

Nordic game. A call for game submission

Show everyone your game. You get more kudos if it uses decentralized technology, is permissionless and censorship-resistant.  If you plan to add decentralized components to it and don't know how and want to start a discussion, then WAM is where you wanna be.
