designer & developer


Between 2015-2017, I was involved in the UI development of various web touch points for ascribe. The main web app was built using one of the early versions of React.

As a pioneer in the digital art world, ascribe allowed users to tokenize digital art and real-life assets onto the Bitcoin blockchain, becoming one of the earliest decentralized apps to utilize a decentralized ledger. These principles inspired the ERC-721 NFT standard on the Ethereum blockchain and later led to the creation of BigchainDB.

However, the service and web app were discontinued in 2017.

Branding & key visuals in collaboration with Wojciech Hupert.
