Bio

I am a software engineering student at Santa Clara University. I have had the opportunity to live all over the world, and to work with people from different cultures on many projects. Over the years, I have accumulated a lot of experience in application development, website development, and specialised programs, especially in the field of blockchain. Today, I work as a freelancer in my spare time, allowing me to contribute my expertise, gain skills and work in a fast paced environment that suits me. Fuelled by a passion for exploring new different applications of technology and being curious innately I am particularly interested in the new possibilities that blockchain offers and want to pursue a career in the technology and finance sector.

Unlocking DeFi Profits with Cyclical Arbitrage

Part of my internship at PyratzLabs was to engineer a cyclical arbitrage bot for DeFi. Cyclical arbitrage shines in its ability to repeatedly utilise opportunities within uniquely characterised swap loops. This approach impressively expands the frontier of regular arbitrage strategies available in the conventional financial market.

A note on developing real-world payment system with the blockchain

Today the web is more than ever affected by inconsistency. And that's understandable because of the permissiveness of the web that causes this entropy, almost inevitable.

Merging CrypTool & CrypTools

In early 2020, the CrypTool project decided to merge with a similar project of the same name, CrypTools, founded in 2017 in Australia by Arthur Guiot, Lucas Gruwez and Luka Lafaye de Micheaux. CrypTool, much older and known, thus completely absorbs the project under its name.
