What brings you here, what do you most like about MetaGame?
I was actually completely unaware of MetaGame until @peth contacted me on Twitter seeking donations for the Gitcoin grants in January 2020. I spent some time reading over the concept and thought it was cool so decided to donate some DAI for that grant.
The phrase “real life MMO-RPG” stuck out to me and I though it was a cool idea. The whole concept sounds fascinating and I’m here to learn more, see how it all plays out and maybe, if I can, contribute.
Why am I only posting now? Actually came about from working on a bounty to work on setting up a Discord bot I noticed advertised on an Ethereum related newsletter… I’m not entirely sure which one if I’m honest. That lead to me realising it was for the MetaGame Discord server and that lead me down the rabbit hole to spend more time to learn more about MetaGame.
What are you currently working on or are proud to have been working on?
Currently working for Argent in their Android team and been there since Sept '18. Feels really awesome to know I was part of the team which helped create the app which brought the Argent wallet to Android.
Recently had been spending time working with node-red to build a Discord bot for MetaGame Discord server. First time ever doing anything with Discord APIs or node-red so it’s been a fun challenging learning about them both.
Thought it’d be easy having taken a brief look over node-red only to realise I’d have to implement my own node-red nodes to make it all work because the Discord node-red module didn’t have everything which was needed by the requirements.
Apart from that I’ve spent some time in recent years tinkering with Flutter and made a useful package which has helped a lot of people in the Flutter community.
What kind of things do you generally like doing?
I enjoy coding otherwise I wouldn’t be doing it for a career. Prefer to be coding mobile apps but not afraid to try something completely new if I have an interest in it.
I also like spending time learning and researching new projects within the Ethereum space.
Got a number of other stuff like doing or watching: gaming / podcasts / working out / poker / football / MMA
What makes you happy?
At my happiest when I’ve finally solved a coding problem / bug which I couldn’t get for hours… absolute bliss.
Doing a kick ass workout.
Spending time catching up with friends.
Spending time to kick back and recharge the batteries either on holiday or a lazy weekend just gaming / binge watching TV shows.
What do you want from MetaGame?
Honestly not sure, I didn’t come here to get something from MetaGame, I came here because curiosity lead me here.
Maybe the better question is what does MetaGame want me to want from it?
What do you offer in return?
My thoughts / suggestions at the very least and hopefully will be able to contribute towards some of the projects depending on what is being built.
