hack.bs is a non-profit cypherpunk hackerspace located in Brescia, Italy. Our mission is to provide a space where people can learn about Bitcoin, technology, open-source, privacy and freedom, and connect with other like-minded individuals. We are a space for hackers, designed by hackers.

We plan to regularly host workshops, meetups, hackathons and more, open to everybody.

We are funded through voluntary contributions from individuals and private companies: if you want to support our project you can also make a donation. We have a transparency page to show exactly how we allocate our funds.

Coming Soon

We are in the process of setting up the legal entity and securing a location for the hackerspace. We will open to the public in Q1 2023.

You can help us cover our initial costs of rent, furniture and hardware equipment by donating to our crowd-funding campaign. We only accept Bitcoin.

If you want to stay up to date you can subscribe to our mailing list.


hack.bs is the creation of Alekos Filini and Daniela Brozzoni, two Bitcoin developers currently working on the open-source library Bitcoin Dev Kit.


We currently have around 20 members eagerly waiting for the hackerspace to open.
