Copernicus Novemberfest November 24, 2022

It’s happening! Copernicus Beer DAO members,BCNL members and curious crypto addicts will get together for an exuberant November Fest at the NFT Playground Amsterdam on the 24th of November and… you are invited!  Why don’t you join us for a great evening with Beer, Wurst and wonderful encounters?

We have reasons to celebrate! Firstly, our nomination for the Computable Awards, in this Dutch Blockchain Week, led to a buzz within our DAO and secondly, our Beer has been distributed to so many places since we started in April 2022, that we feel we should tell you all about it. Organising this night, we want to share our insights AND our beer with anyone who is also passionate about decentralisation, drinking beer and web3! Read on…

Come over at the 24th of November, have a Copernicus beer and savour a delicious wurst (or take it veggie) whilst having great conversations at our tables on web3.

And, listen to our keynote speakers for some great insights on decentralized projects.

Expect a night full of great encounters at your table, meet with our DAO members and dive carefree into the world of web3! 

Acquire new insights on NFT’s, blockchain and the latest Copernicus Beer distribution activities. Listen to inspiring talks of some cool speakers and get all your questions answered. Book a chair, or take your colleagues with you and book a whole table. Oh, and be careful not to tokenize everything and everyone around you after this …😉

About the Copernicus Beer DAO

Copernicus Beer, the first decentralized brew-it-yourself project, is led by groundbreaking founder Hans Geldof and 23 token holders. Now the Copernicus Beer DAO has shaped itself, as it started off in april 2022 as an idea in the mind of some crypto enthusiasts. Starting the Copernicus Beer DAO has led to the brewing of decentralized beer all over Europe, like Faro, Portugal.

NFT Playground Project

This summer at the heart of Amsterdam, located at Weteringdwarsstraat 107, we transformed 200 m2 of open space into an immersive Playground for crypto revolutionists.  With not a real plan, just follow the good vibes. 
Use, share, remix all the possibilities and be surprised what can happen as we use our potential.  And we did! NFT Summer party, Photoshoots, Podcast, flying drones, eating horse steak, Community calls (who did not come), and of course drink Copernicus Beer).


The Copernicus Novemberfest is an ecosystem event of the Dutch Blockchain Week.
Therefore you will meet also many members of BCNL, who will come over to celebrate the end of the Dutch Blockchain Week in our NFT Playground.
We love to see you there!
