25 March - 25 May 2023

At its core, Zuzalu is a public good community, a pop-up city, a playground for cross-pollination experiments, a debating ground for exciting topics, a testing space for Ethereum-based technology, and a hub for futuristic-sounding disciplines such as longevity, synthetic biology, network states, and more.

VitaDAO supports every aspect of longevity at Zuzalu, but we are placing special emphasis on hosting events on biotech innovation, and furthering the the investigation into jurisdictions for longevity, with the intention to evolve VitaDAO into a Longevity Network State, building a special jurisdiction for medical innovation with a better regulatory framework to advance longevity science in an exponential fashion.

The inaugural Zuzalu pop-up city happened in Montenegro between the 25 March and 25 May 2023.
