Token-curated registries and reputation metrics specialist
Artyom Kosmarski has done extensive research in the field of STS and anthropology of science. Blockchain caught his attention as a hotbed of various and sometimes unpredictable solutions to the grievances of academic community, as well as a pathway to a more flexible, grass-root and reputation-based governance of science. Right now Artyom is studying the implementation of smart contracts in universities (research project funded by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research) and investigating the potential of token-curated registries as a basis for reputation metrics. He is also deputy head of the Laboratory for the Study of Blockchain in Education and Science (LIBON) at the State Academic University for the Humanities (GAUGN), Moscow.
