Full Biography

Wassim Z. Alsindi, Ph.D.
Wassim is the founder and convener of the 0x Salon, which conducts experiments in post-disciplinary collective knowledge practices. The 0x Salon provides an informal space for unstructured discussions of unusual topics, and collectively authors artistic and pedagogical outputs based on those conversations. A veteran of the the timechain, Wassim specialises in the conceptual design and philosophy of peer-to-peer systems, on which he writes, speaks, teaches, and consults. He has contributed to numerous publications, has an editorial column at the MIT Computational Law Report, and co-founded MIT鈥檚 interdisciplinary Cryptoeconomic Systems journal and conference series.

Prior to MIT, he was an independent researcher formulating novel approaches to the characterisation of cryptographic assets and networks such as the epistemology project TokenSpace and studies of schizo-schismic divergences through the Forkonomy project. He also foregrounded Bitcoin鈥檚 emancipatory potential under the banner of Reaching Everyone. Wassim has curated arts festivals, led a sculptural engineering laboratory, and published experimental music, improvisatory theatre, poetry, and speculative scripture. Building upon research specialisations in the natural sciences, Wassim holds a Ph.D. in ultrafast supramolecular photophysics from the University of Nottingham, alongside degrees in chemistry, astrophysics, and finance.
