Introduction of Self


Hey everyone!

My name is Kevin and I’m a recent CS and Fine Arts grad from UPenn. I’ve been engrossed in the space since ETHWaterloo where I learned first-hand how amazing the Ethereum dev community is. I’ve been interested in how to use tokenized royalties and cryptoeconomics to create a better music industry (hmu if this interests you as well!) Looking forward to contributing, most likely by creating additional video lectures.


Hey everyone!

My name is Oskar and I work at Status. I’m nomadic, currently living in Berlin/Europe but spend a bunch of time in Asia as well, most recently Tapei. Besides finding cryptoeconomics as a whole a new and exciting area, I’m interested in how to apply it to the systems we build over at Status. Last few weeks I’ve been diving into cryptoeconomics on my own a bit through various resources, and I wrote my own biased view of the field here:

Here to dive deeper into the field and contribute what I can :slight_smile:


Hi All,

My name is Momsad, I have a computer/electrical engineering background and am currently a Salesforce developer. I’ve been investing in cryptos for just under a year and have been digging into blockchain infrastructure development. i hope to learn as much as I can from everyone and this community seems full of experienced blockchain devs.

I hope I can learn enough that i can contribute to this community in a constructive way. Cheers!



Hey all,
I’m an artist and work as a designer at Gnosis. I’ve been around Blockchain for some years, even combined art and crypto in 2012 when my friend and I ran an online gallery that took BTC as a form of payment hahaha.
I’ve kept tabs on the development of the ecosystem, and as a person with strong interest in economics (this is what my artwork is about) I have come to find cryptoeconomics as a fascinating intersection of blockchain, economics and cryptography. I would like to help out in building the future of this branch of blockchain-driven applications.

@karl we just met at fullnode, see you around the forum here and let me know if you think there are some specific posts/ideas that i should pay attention to in order to contribute to the project from the side of design/ a bit of programming (no too good in the latter :expressionless: )



Hey @Joolian,
Do you see blockchain solving the problem of lack of value of digital arts? As digital art can easily be copied, they don’t get value as physical paper/canvas based art. I have been thinking about putting digital art on blockchain to track for double spending - but verifying authenticity of digital art seems very tough ( that the person uploading an art is the actual creator) Also, digital art can easily be screen-captured and i would be as good as the real thing. Wondering, what you think about these issues - and how can blockchain be used in art domain?


Hi Guys, here is @luizjunqueira from Zürich and I just started the course. I was at TechCrunch 2018 in Zug when Karl from Ethereum Foundation presented Looking forward to intereact with you. Cheers, Luiz


Hi there!
I’m @thibmeu. I am a master student in computing science and am performing my master thesis. I’m the proud developer of and I really interested in ways to bring blockchain education to people.
I went through the whole tutorial and found it very good and well taught (@karl you’re enthusiasm is fantastic :smiley:)
I am looking forward to contribute to the growth of this project


Hey @pranay, sorry for the late reply. Was a busy time here in Berlin, putting together stuff for DAPPCON over the past couple of weeks.
In regards to your comment: The application of blockchain technology to digital arts is something that I’ve seen come up in conversation often, and it is a very intuitive connection of the idea of authenticity and the blockchain’s public ledger. However, I am personally weary of where this could go. I think the ability to create digital scarcity requires some good thinking about what we want to make scarce and what we want to make abundant.
Imagine for example applying blockchain-based digital scarcity to memes. That could take us to a scenario where some sort of token-based transaction (translatable to fiat or a local platform currency) is required in order to look at a meme or to let’s say repost it. As a user, I think that would totally take out the fun and the very inherent nature of memes, which in my opinion is to propagate as quickly as possible through the paths of least resistance (screenshotting for immediate replication is a great example). I would argue that a similar situation is found in communities like devianart, where users thrive off informal collaboration (ie in order to create styles) and video game communities where people make outfits for their characters out of pure curiosity and creativity. The longevity of some of these works could be at stake if their diffusion relies on an economic transaction.
In short, i believe some things should be left out of token economics and remain simply as “social capital”, which is a space where they already very successfully thrive.
My interest in cryptoeconomics is more in line to utility tokens or “platform token models” where users partaking have the possibility to accrue some value through their work which I don’t think has to necessarily done through scarcity.

Hi! I’m Kars, I’m working mostly on Swarm City smart contracts. I love Karl’s vision and energy on bringing ethereum to everyday people!


Hey there everyone, I’m gamedazed - it’s not a particularly accurate name, but it stuck - anyways you may know my name from the OmiseGo subreddit, I found by watching Karl’s videos. I’ve been following since the first set of lectures was put online, but just made my account. I’ve never programmed a blockchain and only have a tiny bit of experience in languages commonly used therein, namely Go(Lang) and Python - no solidity experience. I work for a financial institution writing automation, my language of choice is Perl. Crypto has been a big part of my life for a long time, but I’ve only recently had the desire to start programming one, which has luckily coincided with a field-wide recognition that knowledge-shares should be a point of focus to expand the community. Even in such a fruitful environment I see coming about, I think having a place to ask questions will be very beneficial. I’m glad this place exists, I’m glad to be here, and I look forward to learning with all of you.


Hi everyone! My name is Deniz (pronounced Dennis like Dennis the Menace!) and I’m based in Cyprus. I got into crypto in early 2016 when I started my MSc in Digital Currencies and I haven’t come out of the rabbit hole since then. I’m tech evangelist for Kyber Network but I’ve also cofounded for project research and have been running for the last two years.

I saw Karl talk about at the Ethereum meetup in Zug a few weeks ago and it sounded awesome so here I am! Hoping to contribute in any way I can.


Thanks for your reply. I understand that creating scarcity for memes, etc. will take the fun out of it - but what about artworks which artists want to monetize and creating scarcity may be a way to get them paid for it. I think DADA does something similar, but they ask that the art be created on their platform (on a art creator type interface) which ensures authenticity of the art.


Hello community - my name is Nicola Santoni, I am a born and raised Italian, now based in HK and with Lemniscap (investment and advisory firm for cryptoassets).

Yesterday I heard the presentation at of Jinglan Wang and jumped right in the community

Looking forward to learn great things from you guys



Hey everyone, my name is Nich and I’m currently based in Thailand. super excited about the blockchain space especially product development and content creation. I give light primers and case studies on my website to introduce people to common concepts in crypto, and also contributed to Andreas Antonopoulos’ Mastering Ethereum

I found out about this project today at the ETHBKK meetup - looking forward to helping out any way I can!



Hi im udo. my interest in blockchain technology brought me here. being new to it, there are a lot of cool/complex concepts to grasp surrounding it. it might take me a while into actually contributing to the community but hopefully i can be onboard soon with you guys.


Hi I’m Tom, learning ethereum and bitcoin development. Looking forward to learning and hopefully contributing to cryptoeconomics study.


Hello fellow Goku fan!


Hey there !

So cool to learn a bit more about you guys, y’all look to be super interesting dudes ! Can’t wait to be confident enough (about my english) and join community calls !

I’m Clément, 25 from France (Burgundy). I’ve spent the last decade between music (instrument, production or sound design for small projects) and learning IT. It’s quite hard to me since I’ve no diploma, so I’m mostly learning with books (Mastering Bitcoin/Ethereum, and JavaScript the Definitive Guide) and practice. My goal is to build unstoppable democratic weapons or dApps that’d help democratising web3.0.
My short term plans are to be at ease with the MEAN stack, add some web3.js into that and then look closer at DAT and IPFS

Sorry I won’t contribute a lot to the community, I guess I’ll mostly stay quiet, learn and ask questions… This is like my studies, and Internet is my classroom (and I’m glad to see that my teachers are also my coworkers. People online who’re working/learning about crypto looks to be really nice persons !)

Cya :slight_smile:


Hi all, I’m Trieu, i from vietnam. I’m learning blockchain technology.


Hi everybody. My name is Salma and I am a frontend developer working for Merkleblock Labs from India.

While reading Mastering Bitcoin by Andreas Antonopoulos, I came across the concept of a Merkle Tree. I have spent the last couple of weeks trying to implement the same using Javascript and Vue Material. I have described my work in detail here -

View live demo here -

I would really appreciate you reading the post and if you have any feedback, please let me know. I hope to get more involved in this space in the future.
