The CryptoCastle in Germany is the place to be for Blockchain, AI, IoT, and sustainable technology events & communities. This location is dedicated to those wanting to immerse themselves in the vibrant tech community and retreat from the city.

The æternity Galaxy event’s goal is to engage the community and the æcosystem supporters alike in an educational, networking, dinner, and party event that includes direct communication with the Founder and key members of the æternity æcosystem. We support attendees to interact in a smaller circle and learn about the evolution and progress of our technology during the Panel talk and Apéro break. And, of course, the goal is also to celebrate our meet-up and new people integration in the community with an all-night party, having various electronic music artists, and the best place to party in – the regal home for cypherpunks, CryptoCastle.

Attending the æternity Galaxy event is an opportunity to become part of the CryptoCastle growing community and be aware of the æternity blockchain ecosystem projects and forward events. And for all to pursue more innovation in a magnificent historic building.
