OpenTag | Crypto Product Lead

Joined the company as a crypto lead to prepare the creation of a brand new Web3 layer around the company's existing gaming ecosystem and launch the brand's first-ever crypto casino.

Throughout this project, I was responsible for steering the product vision, driving product innovation, overseeing product design, and managing the development of OpenTag's Web3 gaming platform. This encompassed the creation of our own on-chain utility token, the development of a non-custodial wallet, and the implementation of peer-to-peer (P2P) experiences.

In addition, I collaborated closely with product owners from various verticals to integrate crypto components into their respective roadmaps.

Beyond the internal scope, I also served as a subject-matter expert and consultant for both the organization and clients.

Plum | Crypto Product Lead

Pitched a brand new crypto vertical to the company's CEO, built the team, the roadmap, and the vision, and launched the MVP, featuring innovative integrations, across multiple countries in Europe.

Plum's new crypto investment line aimed to optimize users' wealth by leveraging integrations with decentralized finance (DeFi) applications.

In my role as a product leader, I spearheaded the 0-1 launch of Plum's crypto initiative, taking it from concept to reality. This involved formulating and executing the roadmap for offering various crypto and DeFi services, including the development of a wallet, liquid staking capabilities, and integration with a decentralized exchange (DEX), among other features.

To ensure a successful launch, I coordinated the design and launch of the minimum viable product (MVP) and devised a comprehensive launch strategy while establishing a long-term vision and strategy.

Furthermore, I facilitated the integration process with third-party providers and handled the necessary regulatory compliance efforts, ensuring proper licensing and registration with financial regulators.

Product Director

Launched an app that empowers individuals to run a blockchain node directly from their phones.

Successfully managed the full mainnet and testnet launch of an application that allowed users to stake their AMT tokens and become chain node validators with their phones.

In addition to the launch, I led a comprehensive rebrand of the app, shaping its vision and revamping the roadmap, closely monitored and integrated key platforms like Onramper, 1inch, and Verse to facilitate multicurrency management, and designed an NFT marketplace that empowered users and artists to instantly mint and market their NFTs.

Looking ahead, I have meticulously created a roadmap for the future development of a decentralized exchange (DEX) platform, payment gateway, and a robust dApp developer ecosystem.
