Ph.D., LL.M. / Antitrust Law & Innovation

Welcome to Thibault Schrepel's website

My most recent publication:
“Blockchain Code as Antitrust” (co-authored with Vitalik Buterin)


I am a Faculty Associate at the Berkman Center at Harvard University and Assistant Professor in European Economic Law at Utrecht University School of Law. I also hold research and teaching positions at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and Sciences Po Paris, and a Ph.D. in digital antitrust law.

In 2018, I was granted the “Academic Excellence” Global Competition Review Award which recognizes “an academic competition specialist who has made an outstanding contribution to competition policy.” I have published a book (Larcier ed.) on the subject of “predatory innovation in antitrust law” as well as numerous articles at Harvard University, MIT, Oxford, NYU, Berkeley, and Georgetown, among others (see here).

These last couple of years, I have been focusing most of my research on blockchain antitrust (see here). I am very grateful to have published the world’s most downloaded antitrust articles of 2018, “The Blockchain Antitrust Paradox,” and 2019, “Collusion by Blockchain and Smart Contracts.” In July 2020, I ranked 17th on SSRN in the category “Law.” I am passionate about nineties rock music, free jazz, Seinfeld, and B movies, and I welcome e-mails regarding these subjects as well.
