My name is Rich. I’m located in the NYC area and 25 years old. I have been following BTC since 2011, and ETH since I was informed about the pre-sale by Joe Lubin in 2014. I used to attend the Bitcoin Exchange on Wall street while it was operational. I have a bachelors degree in Sociology with dual minors in both Business and Psychology I got in 2016. I have been a professional software developer since 2019, after learning to code starting in 2017. I have always been fascinated in technology, and have had a passion for personal finance and investing since an early age. Naturally, I was drawn to the blockchain industry as a result.
A few months ago, I learned more about Cardano and my interest was immediately piqued. I have investigated it further and the more I learn the more I love!
In recent months I have launched a Youtube Channel titled “Rich G - Insights” that follows my viewpoint on various news and other perspectives related to finance and technology. Cardano is one of my favorite topics to discuss on there, so if you are interested feel free to give me a sub!
The main reason I am introducing myself today is I would like to get more involved with the community and help build something impactful for the Cardano ecosystem. I am in the early stages of learning Solidity, and have worked with web3.js in the past as well as making very modest open source contributions to projects like Metamask, Truffle, and the Remix IDE (mostly just fixing typos as I learn to navigate the codebase in full disclosure).
I look forward to getting to know everyone over the coming months! Thanks for reading
