Hi. I'm Joanna. Legal professional specialized in Blockchain and NFTs.
I help companies with new business ideas in this disruptive field.



I am a curious person who gets excited and inspired from observing and understanding new technologies and the potential for new business opportunities they bring.

I like to help companies understand and navigate the changing regulatory landscape and support them on their journey to build new products and services in the Web3 space. I hope to see a wider adoption of the blockchain technology and to support more adoption.

Do you have an NFT project you wish to launch, questions around how to navigate upcoming regulation or a licensing question on your mind? Do you wonder how you may use NFTs to reach a broader audience and engagement? I am always curious to exchange thoughts and happy to discuss collaboration opportunities.

I am also always happy to share my knowledge so if you have a speaking engagement in mind, I'd love to hear from you! I am always happy to participate on conferences and meetups to engage in industry relevant discussions.

Companies require a compliant setup to harness the potential of blockchain technologies. As the digital realm progresses with the rise of the new web, the regulatory and tax landscapes are evolving at an unparalleled rate. What is already achievable, and where does Europe still face challenges? Delve into the latest regulatory responses to web3 technologies, including decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and other decentralized applications (DApps).
