CryptoKitchen23 - Let's Cook at Istanbul in 18 Days

By Jessie

From November 10th to 19th, CryptoKitchen23, initiated by Odyssey DAO, DataverseOS, Fusion Labs, Buidler DAO, and Fat Garage, in Istanbul, Turkey, will invite thought leaders and founders of pioneering projects in crypto to serve as chefs, and to share with builders and cryptopians around the globe the thoughts, actions, and stories behind their explorations into creativity, through afternoon tea, culinary delights, and more.

Despite the crypto winter and the turmoil in the Middle East, many crypto builders, developers, researchers, and cryptopians from all over the world are flocking to Istanbul, Turkey, the millennium metropolis that straddles the continent of Eurasia and connects the civilizations of the East and the West, to immerse themselves in a series of crypto events, such as ZuConnect, LabWeek23, Binance Blockchain Week 2023, and Devconnect, where they will be able to share the latest crypto technologies and hack Web3 projects this November.


During this exciting gathering, here is an invite from CryptoKitchen23! You'll have the opportunity to explore the people and stories behind the remarkable ecosystems, products, or projects in the crypto space and engage in meaningful conversations with the community as you craft signature dishes and savor the flavors of Turkish cuisine, renowned as one of the Three Grand Cuisines.

What is Crypto Kitchen?

CryptoKitchen23 is a brand-new event initiated by Odyssey DAO, DataverseOS, Fusion Labs, Buidler DAO & Fat Garage, a gathering spot and relaxed backstage story and intersection for various crypto ecosystems.

CryptoKitchen23 will be hosted as a daily themed event, in formats like workshops 🥪, open kitchen talks 🥘, and fireside chats 🌶, determined in collaboration with the guests, invited chefs, and participants. We can all work together to organize gatherings and sharing sessions, while also planning for documentaries, blogs, and live content!

Why Crypto Kitchen?

A kitchen is a realm of creativity, where culinary arts meet our basic needs. In the Crypto world, we often explore the vast digital landscape of numbers and intangibles. But right here and right now, we have the chance to merge this digital realm with the tactile reality of a kitchen. This is where we use food and tools to not just cook but BUIDL, without rigid plans. It's about embracing the present moment.
