Bitcoin | Business | Technology

Since first going down the Bitcoin rabbithole in early 2013 I have been writing about its development, building blockchain applications, going to hackathons, attending meetups, reading whitepapers and trading cryptocurrencies. I used to mine Bitcoins with ASIC miners and I have also configured miners using stratum proxys and raspberry pi computers. I spent two years working in enterprise software as a Sales Engineer at Apttus Corporation, working closely with customers in the pre-sales process to define solution architecture, create a business case, identify stakeholders in the project and build custom demos. I also managed cross-department high visibility projects and drove various product development lifecycles.

I am now focused on building Dapps Inc, a software company that builds enterprise blockchain solutions on the Salesforce platform. The concentration has been on Bitcoin and the Ethereum, Hyperledger and Corda blockchain protocols building software that enables enterprise companies to utilize this technology. I am also very interested in p2p protocols like ipfs and other blockchain stacks like Substrate and Cosmos.
