Johnson & Johnson Health Care Blockchain

Designed a private and hybrid blockchain based on Hyperledger Fabric. The solution was developed on microservices standards. It was designed to be used with off-chain and on-chain data. It was proof of a concept that was successful. It helped Johnson & Johnson to start exploring more in blockchain technology

Crypto Projects

Worked with Parabellum during the peak of COVID-19. They were a US-based startup working on Cosmos-based blockchain. I joined it as their leading blockchain solutions architect. I worked on many Cosmos-based decentralized finance projects like Gravity Bridge, Anatha, exchanges, and other smart contracts.

My biggest achievement was architecting and developing an arbitrage trading bot that got $50 million as funding. I also helped my company to gain a blockchain-based mobile operating system patent.

Eovendo

Eovendo has Denmark's number one cash-back website and mobile app. During COVID-19, Eovendo struggled with business, and they had to reduce costs.

I revamped the whole solution with new technologies and migrated to AWS. Now Eovendo's monthly server costs are under $1000, and they are successfully running the business.
