Dmitry Koval

Chief Technology Officer
[email protected]

Dmitry obtained his MSc degree in mathematics in 1997 and has built his entire career around information technologies and information security.

He has gained wide-ranging experience in both large corporate and start-up environments and after working for a few years for Cisco and large systems integrators, he started his first company – Netwell.

Started from scratch, Netwell is now one of the largest value-added distributors in Eastern Europe focused on information security.

The emergence of cryptocurrencies could not leave any serious information security professional indifferent to the possibilities that Blockchain represents, and Dmitry submerged himself into this new world, starting his first crypto project in 2014 – the renowned Bitcoin Futures platform & trading exchange Crix.io.

Since then blockchain technology has experienced tremendous growth, and he quickly recognised the lack of expertise. To address this problem, Dmitry started Blockwise – a consultancy and software development firm focused on evaluating blockchain use cases and implementing blockchain to solve real-world problems.
