Ekta relocated to Germany in 2020 as a DAAD Scholar. At the esteemed Leuphana University in Lüneburg, she embarked on an intensive Master's study in Public Economics, Law, and Politics. Concurrently, Ekta discovered her fascination with the intersection of law and emerging technology during her research on Intellectual Property in the context of blockchain technology.

Recognizing the transformative potential of web3 and Decentralized Finance (DeFi), Ekta took the initiative to enhance her competencies through specialized courses such as DeFi Talents from Frankfurt School Blockchain centre and engaging with global web3 communities. She also learned JavaScript and Solidity.
