What We Do

AIDBLOCK undertakes scholarly research and uses its findings to engage the media, speak in public forums, and create accessible educational programming for a wider audience. This is how we tackle things: through research, training, and communication.

The institute seeks to shift the Overton window in favour of regulations/legislations to build an enabling environment for mass DeFi and integrated blockchain adoption. Our goal is to influence regulatory and institutional readiness and provide innovative policy alternatives through research-based advocacy that have the tendency of impacting the operability and adoption of DeFi and the smooth running of organizations using blockchain to offer real-world solution through dApps, DAO as well as Smart Contracts.


To provide evidence based blockchain research, education and advocacy to innovatively influence policy for adoption

We attempt to describe a complex techno-social phenomenon using an innovative free market approach that integrates legal, social, political, economic, and technological discourses.


We envision a society where people are free to build decentralized solutions leveraging on blockchain that enhance their lives, liberty and property as they deem fit and consistent with equal rights of others.
