Crowdsourced Event.

The unconference is an unstructured and crowd-sourced event which is geared towards entrepreneurs, tech developers, the Pillar community, and those interested in learning more about cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and innovation.

The Pillar Project is building the world’s leading cryptocurrency and token wallet and is organising its summer unconference in the Vilnius Grand Resort in Lithuania between 15th – 22nd July 2018. Pillar has covered the costs of the unconference, all you have to pay for is your flight, hotel accommodation and board.

“The first year was about building a platform, the second year is about creating an eco-system. Join the unconference to build your business and transform your community”

David Siegel, Founder and CEO of The Pillar Project

The music unfestival.

Pillarstock – our own version of Woodstock. We want Pillaristas to fill the air with music. Bring instruments, bring bands, bring talent and bring the noise.

The unagenda.



David’s business-agility workshop series on startups, failure, experiments, measurement, applied rationality, agile vs lean, innovation, management, structure, governance, and much more.

Pillar Pioneers

We’ll have a special track for entrepreneurs who want to build their businesses in the Pillar wallet. For this year, the business will mostly be e-commerce. If you are already selling products or services online, if you have an e-commerce web site and want to connect your inventory to the Pillar wallet, we want you to come learn and build on our platform. If you want to build tools, middleware, or infrastructure, you should come attend the first “devcon” for the Pillar platform. 


Last year we had workshops on writing smart contracts and designing products. We had many brainstorming sessions with “ahah!” moments that have later led to products and protocols. This is a great chance to come share and work with some of the best minds in the blockchain industry. We expect many people to offer their talks, workshops, and discussions – it will be more organic and probably more impactful than most other blockchain events.


We let our culture emerge. If you have anything to contribute to a spontaneous music festival, please come and make it happen. Maybe you dance, juggle, or do magic – all are welcome. We will supply the stage, lights, and sound system – you supply the talent. 

Testimonials from last year’s pioneers

“It’s life changing. You will not be the same after this.”

– Tomer Sofinzon, Tel Aviv, Israel

“We came, we learned, we volunteered, we got sucked in. We now work for Pillar. Soon, you will be one of us.”

– Max Pokam, Nice,  France

“I brought my entire family, strollers and all. It was memorable. We can’t wait to go to the next one.”

– Euros Evans, Wales, UK

“I met really positive and smart crypto enthusiasts who flew in from all over the world. David’s morning sessions alone on entrepreneurship and building the digital wallet of the future were worth the trip!”

– Tony Scarcello from Scottsdale, Arizona

“It was amazing, I learned so much about blockchain from all the talented and experienced people I met there. I will definitely come to the next unconference, even if it takes place on the other side of the world”

– Anastasia Tsoupidi, Athens, Greece

Last year’s unconference in Poprad, Slovakia was an incredible and a unique experience… it’s one I won’t forget. I have no doubt the unconference in Vilnius, Lithuania will be just as incredible. Pillar project has big plans and this is a chance to participate and be a part of the progression and shaping of those plans. There isn’t another project or group of people quite like those at Pillar. Poprad was a blast. I expect great things from Pillar.

– Sterling Chipman, Utah
