On the 13th of April, we hosted the first VitaDAO Crypto meets Longevity Symposium – for which more than 300 people attended, and which created plenty of content to be used on our social media platforms(>2000 views on YouTube alone).
Due to this successful first event, we plan on a second 1-day Symposium(7-9h) in the Fall (exact date TBD, somewhen between the end of September and the beginning of November).
The purpose of the second edition stays the same:
To increase VitaDAOs visibility and credibility in the Longevity and Crypto space and to educate the Crypto field on Longevity, and the Longevity Biotech sector on Blockchain technology, and build a bridge between the 2 industries.
The event will be free of charge and live streamed on YouTube and other social media platforms.
Furthermore, to advertise the Symposium and reach the right audience we will advertise it in multiple academic Institutions via email. A social media campaign on Twitter with multiple tweetstorms is also planned.
After the event a symposium report will be published in Longevity/Crypto Media.
Thus far we have talked to speakers who would be available to speak such as Vadim Gladyshev, Marc Bernegger, João Pedro de Magalhães, Shahaf Peleg, Steve Horvath, Dog Aging Project, etc
Current session planned:
Keynote 40 min
30 min Epigenetic Clocks
30 min Rejuvenation through Spinal Fluid()
30 min Mitochondrial Rejuvenation
30 min Autophagy
30 min TradSci vs DeSci
30 min Clinical Longevity and Longevity Medicine
30 min Canines as model Organisms(Maybe as panel)
30 min Rejuvenation events
30min Bioinformatics approaches in Longevity
30 min Reproductive Longevity
45 min Panel Discussion: Building and Investing in Longevity Startups
45 min Panel: TBD
45 min Panel: TBD
Further positioning VitaDAO in the Crypto and Longevity community as a legit entity by organizing a bigger event.
A successful event would get more crypto folk excited about Longevity, and Longevity people excited about the usefulness of Blockchain Technology in Science.
It should yield an increase in Twitter Followers and people joining discord and should facilitate outreach to researchers when we ask them for proposals.
