June 9, 2022

A REVOLUTIONARY Whitepaper
Blockchain, cryptocurrencies and the world of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) haveopened up a new financial system that everyone can benefit from without restrictionsor borders.Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are starting to show how they can be used to build globally distributed communities of like-minded individuals in a way never seen before.

European Student Think Tank

The European Stu­dent Think Tank (EST) was foun­ded in 2010 to serve as a plat­form to inform stu­dents about and involve them in the EU policy-making pro­cess. It is based on the belief that stu­dents can mean­ing­fully con­trib­ute to this pro­cess by apply­ing their aca­demic skills and know­ledge. The import­ance of this vis­ion was recog­nized when the EST was awar­ded the Char­le­magne Youth Prize by The Neth­er­lands in 2011. Through its web­site, events, and its net­work in the European Union’s (can­did­ate) mem­ber states, the EST provides stu­dents with a plat­form for their ideas and ques­tions. We are a non-partisan, non-profit, and non-governmental organ­iz­a­tion (NGO) that aims to incor­por­ate as many stu­dents, dis­cip­lines, and view­points as possible.
