Meet Felipe A D’Onofrio, CTO at Blockchain-Based Tokenization Platform: Brickken

Felipe A D'Onofrio

Tell us about yourself

You could say that I am a builder, for about 6 years I have been working around the crypto ecosystem. Because I am from Venezuela, I saw cryptocurrencies not as a curiosity but as a way to solve one of the biggest economic crises seen in the world. Seeing the potential of this, I started working on transmitting my knowledge about the use of cryptocurrencies to fight inflation and I also realized that tools were needed so that not only users but also businesses could use crypto in their day to day.

It was in this way that I created a PoS for businesses which allowed them to convert Bs (Bolívar) to cryptocurrencies, a function that was not available at the time in my country.

That was my first foray with building a cryptocurrency-related solution. From there I began venturing into new projects that seemed disruptive to me, such as electronic signatures and contactless payment solutions, as well as crypto-active compensation systems as a solution for banking – thus allowing the adoption of more people to the universe of crypto-actives.

How did you come up with the idea for Brickken?

Well for me, Brickken started with a conversation with Edwin Mata, in which he told me about the need to create a platform that complies with the legal requirements for the issuance of security tokens. I had already worked with Edwin on the creation of an electronic signature solution, and we had already worked hand in hand on different legal requirements, since Edwin is one of the best prepared lawyers on the subject of legal-tech.

When we had this conversation, I had already been looking at the topic of STO for a couple of years, the potential of tokenization as a value generation and financing tool for those who do not have similar financial tools. So when Edwin told me he wanted to start the project, I didn’t think twice, immediately joined and we started working.


What makes Brickken unique?

Brickken stands out in that it is a multidisciplinary team at its core that seeks to make web3 technology accessible, and to provide infrastructure to all those who wish to tokenize. We first focus on being able to simplify the complexity of the processes necessary for tokenization of a company.

Centered on the user and mainly on the web2 user, we gradually make an onramp to web3 technology. By creating friendly interfaces, Brickken has created an ecosystem of experts that can be utilized by companies that are interested in tokenizing, and who can accompany them in their tokenization process.

Additionally, Brickken seeks to be legally-complaint in each jurisdiction where a company wants to carry out its tokenization, by performing KYC on each of the participants in an STO.

What can we hope to see from Brickken in the future?

At Brickken we are starting with the base, that is the tokenization of a company allowing it to carry out its STO, but that is only the beginning. Once a company is already tokenized, it needs to be able to be managed and under its new decentralized model.

Therefore, Brickken will continue to expand the tools and infrastructure that a company requires in order to be managed in a decentralized manner. We are continuously adding new tools to assist and facilitate effective management.
