Crypto Orb 2022 is the first Crypto event of its kind in Costa Rica with an exclusive global community of attendees. Are you ready to explore Web 3.0 opportunities from the pristine Costa Rican jungle?
Stunning Imiloa Institute, an exclusive group of leaders, thinkers and investors are coming together for learning, adventure, play and connection.
Daily workshops and strategy sessions delivered by world-renowned experts will take half of your time, while the other half will be designated towards connection, adventure and relaxation. Together we build a community of leaders that collaborate and co-create, while prioritizing wellness and mastering an optimal mental state.
We will take a deep dive into several topics, with the ultimate goal of creating advantageous results that retreat participants can carry throughout 2022 and beyond. We will cover NFTs, DeFi, BTC, ETH, SOL, AVAX, LUNA, ATOM, FTM and some hand-selected Altcoins and IDO’s that carry good long-term growth perspectives.
Web 3.0 is transforming our world at such a rapid pace, that in order to fully appreciate and integrate its complexity and possibility, we’ve created a spacious schedule over 8 days to fully explore the root shifts at a societal level. From there, we will explore the current advancements in the field and the crypto ecosystem. We’ll enjoy community meals and explore how the NFTs and the blockchain can be used to positively impact human beings, empower activists, institutions, and NGO’s for more efficient results in environmental and human rights protections.
The result is a radical transparency for our guests: ideas, technologies and healthy discourse all while enjoying the relaxation and wellness for which Imiloa Institute has become known for. In between spa treatments, strategy sessions and workshops, enjoy one-on-one conversations about your trades poolside, or take an adventure down to our private waterfall.
Speakers and guests include experts on programming and development, product building, venture capital, gaming, seed investing, community, marketing and tokenomics. As the future arrives, we’re inviting you to step into it with a sense of confidence and wonder. Your mind-altering journey will veer through the digital assets revolution and culminate in the unity among engineers who bend time and space, curious investors and leaders who want to be a part of something bigger than themselves and how they have worked before.
