1/ It's time to start getting hyped that we will *finally* have round two of @MoneroKon happening in 2022 👀 #MoneroKon2019 was my first cryptocurrency conference, I got the opportunity to volunteer, and got the chance to meet so many people I had gotten to know and respect.

2/ The videos from the last #MoneroKon are live on Youtube and are a wealth of info: piped.kavin.rocks/playlist?list=PL… You can also watch them on Invidious for a more privacy-preserving front-end: invidious.sethforprivacy.com…

3/ There were *countless* hours of effort put in by many people, the conference was entirely community funded, and people came from all over the world to give talks on Monero, cryptography, and the need for privacy. Here are a few of my favorite talks 👇

4/ Reproducible builds became a reality for Monero after this talk by @the_charlatan_, and I was immediately a fan of the concept: invidious.sethforprivacy.com… Reproducible builds are central to ensuring releases of Monero are unmodified in any way and exactly the same as source.

5/ @parasew got me hyped and interested in open and free (as in libre) hardware, something I had never considered before: invidious.sethforprivacy.com…

6/ @jerrybrito laid out for us *why* digital cash matters, and what it means to have Monero available to the world. If you want to get some inspiration to dive further into the need for financial privacy, give this a watch: invidious.sethforprivacy.com…

7/ We got a great glimpse from @makeopenmoney on how impactful cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Monero can be in countries without a "reliable" monetary system: invidious.sethforprivacy.com… I would *love* to see Monero adoption continue to grow in countries like Venezuela.

7/ The (then) future of Monero network privacy was introduced by @vtnerd, detailing how and why Dandelion++ would make an excellent sane default for Monero: invidious.sethforprivacy.com… D++ was integrated into Monero in early 2020 after this talk!

8/ We got an awesome look into the data behind Monero in this talk by @Mitchellpkt0, showcasing both good signs and potential issues that should be remedied in code: invidious.sethforprivacy.com…

9/ We got to see @hyc_symas present on #RandomX, the ASIC-resistant mining algorithm that is still keeping Monero safe and secure: invidious.sethforprivacy.com… RandomX was implemented later that year, and was a huge step forward in the security and stability of Monero.

10/ @jtgrassie gave the talk that got me to buy into the need for pool decentralization, and was a pre-cursor (in my mind) for what would lead to p2pool for Monero: invidious.sethforprivacy.com…

11/ MoneroKon helped me see the need for Monero, drove home many of the technical topics around Monero, and led to many key discussions in the future development of Monero. Want to see this happen again? Consider donating to the open CCS request: ccs.getmonero.org/proposals/…

12/ Organizing and running a conference like this takes *immense* effort and time, and there have been tireless efforts already to get the initial planning done for this. If you'd like to help out, join #monero-events on IRC or Matrix and keep an eye out for future meetings.

14/14 I cannot stress enough how important #MoneroKon2019 was to my own development and learning around Monero, privacy, and decentralization, and absolutely cannot wait to see you all at #MoneroKon2022! Let's get this funded and get ready to drive Monero forward 😎
