For the next three months, Blooms across the world will celebrate “Tech Freedom.” This theme features innovations in decentralization technologies. From Bitcoin to encrypted messaging services to online cooperatives, decentralization tools are providing ways for communities to keep their resources circulating among themselves for autonomy and privacy. The recommended action for this theme, worldwide, is CryptoParties. . Generally cryptoparties teach you how to install encrypted messaging apps and browsing on your phone and computer. Important for activists and psychedelic explorers!

You don’t have to be an official Bloom organizer to host a CryptoParty. Host one yourself, or find a friendly tech nerd near you who would love to share these skills. If you’d like, you can let us know the date/time and place of your CryptoParty and we’ll post it online here for more people to find it and participate. Email us at
