AbouT Me

I have PhD in Law, Science and Technology (2020). The title of my PhD thesis is “Tokenization of Real Estate on Blockchain.”

I was the winner of a prestigious scholarship provided by the EU within the international program of six universities coordinated by the University of Bologna - “Erasmus Mundus Joint International Doctoral (PhD) Degree in Law, Science and Technology” (www.last-jd.eu). Only six people won this scholarship annually and applications were received from all over the world.

Within the research program I visited and collaborated with five universities: University of Bologna (Italy), University of Turin (Italy), Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain), University of Tilburg (Netherland), and the last two years I was enrolled at RMIT University (Australia).

I have degrees in Laws, recognized by World Education Services as an equivalent of the U.S. LLM, 2005, and in Economics (2010, postgraduate diploma).

I am an author on Cointelegraph, the global leading online magazine in blockchains and fintech.

I have an emerging Youtube channel “Blockchain State.”

My major product of my four year research work is a concept of Blockchain Estate Registry.

Having a background in software engineering, during my PhD I developed a concept of cross-blockchain protocol aimed to support the creation of public property registries on DLT. I presented technical protocols for smart laws and digital authorities that create grounds for developing a new generation e-government system on blockchain.

Before academia, I spent 10 years practising law. Between 2014 and 2016, I worked on public reforms in Ukraine as a manager of e-Democracy group (an NGO) and became a co-author of the law on e-Petitions.

I live in Melbourne, Australia.
