Abstract. The paper presents a modern approach to the construction of collaboration platforms in virtual scientific communities, which is based on the ideas of decentralization and crypto security. The risks and disadvantages of existing collaboration solutions are considered, as well as possible ways of their elimination. Research highlights cornerstone technologies of the platform, in particular, peer-topeer network, the blockchain, distributed hosting, selfsovereign identity and interconnections between them.
