How cryonics and cryptography are related: from Hal Finney to CryoGen

After the crypto community learned of Hal's disease, many sacrificed some of their bitcoins to treat Finney. The amount was about 12.5 thousand dollars. At first, the family wanted to buy for Finney a new specialized computer interface, with electromyographic switches that read signals from the superficial muscles, allowing him to better control his computer with voice and to write the code. But instead, the donations were directed to cryonic procedures at the request of Hal and his wife.

 

Hal Finney, an American programmer and a pioneer in the crypto-currency community has decided to use cryopreservation because he had very ambitious plans - to visit the future. Hal was one of the first to work on the Bitcoin source code. He received the first transaction of 10 coins from Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009.

In the early 90's, Hal Finney, together with Phil Zimmerman, have created the first version of the PGP application and founded the PGP Corporation. Hal Finney died on the morning of August 28, 2014, when he was 58 years old. It happened after several years of struggle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Today Finney is also famous because he recognized a much more incredible technology: cryopreservation. It is the process of freezing the human body so that it can be revived decades or centuries after death. Hal was always striving for progress and loved not only cryptography with its secrets and paradoxes but also transhumanism because he shared its ideas for prolonging life.

The KrioRus company does everything to make it possible to really resuscitate such wonderful people as Hal Finney

 And today the Russian company KrioRus decided to make every effort to bring the possibility of real resuscitation of such wonderful people as Hal. That is why a large-scale attraction of investments in the development of cryonics is now underway. Anyone who shares our faith in the possibilities of modern science and medicine can take part in CryoGen ICO and contribute to our project.

Now, the thought that her husband is cryopreserved can comfort her in some way. "This does not cancel the fact that he is no longer here. But the fact that he can come back calms and reassures me. " Finney's body is now at a temperature of -196 degrees Celsius inside a three-meter Dewar filled with liquid nitrogen, and it will be stored in complete anabiosis at Alcor cryonics company.

"Here he will stay until technologies appear that will solve problems like ALS and the aging process," says Max More, the director of Alcor and Finney's old friend. "Then we can get Hal back alive and healthy."
