3rd VitaDAO DeSci & Longevity Symposium

Project Lead: Max Unfried

Team: Alex Dobrin, Eleanor Sheekey, (TBD 2 WG Members), Max Unfried


The previous two VitaDAO Crypto meets Longevity Symposia had each 250-300 for attendees and created plenty of content to be used on our social media platforms, with several thousand views on YouTube.

Due to these successful events, we plan a third edition of the 1-day Symposium(7-9h) on April 5th 2023.

The purpose of the 3rd 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.

Thus far we have talked to speakers who would be available to speak such as Vadim Gladyshev, João Pedro de Magalhães, Vincenzo Sorrention, Dog Aging Project, etc

Current session planned:

Keynote 40 min

30 min Tissue Replacements

30 min Extracellular Matrix

30 min Mitochondrial Rejuvenation

30 min Fasting Mimetics

30 min DeSci

30 min DAO Perspective

30 min DeSci 2

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: TBD

45 min Panel: TBD


Further positioning VitaDAO in the Crypto and Longevity community as a legit entity by organizing a bigger event.

Success Metrics

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.

Thanks, Alex. What’s the city and address of the conference?

In strong support, albeit 17k vita seems on the high end, maybe something like <14k with 5k bonus is more reasonable? But dont have a strong review, depends a bit on the hours put in by each divided by reasonable rate, as well as the reach at the end with publishing all videos

The last two symposiums have requested up to 5k for upgraded streaming software, equipment, and publishing in Cointelegraph/longevity.technology. I noticed that the published Youtube videos from the symposium are in 720p. Has any of this 5k been used at previous Symposiums?

Good point Sarah. Thus far we never spent anything on equipment from the requested 5K or used it. I actually thought we had HD recording enabled on the last symposium - but as you pointed out the youtube version is indeed 720p.It’s more a software thing then a hardware thing. Will have a look what happened.


We adapted bounties to your suggestions from the 2nd symposium this time. But in any case we actually never used the full allocation, but it’s always good to have a buffer, that in case we would need more would have to go through governance again.
