Professional experience and achievement
Developer, Bitcoin Core; founder, Eligius Mining Pool; lead developer, BFGMiner.
Before Bitcoin, I have been involved in the development of many different peer-to-peer and free software projects. Bitcoin has allowed a new area of excitement and challenge for me to which I believe I bring a unique set of skills, knowledge and experience as a developer. My passion for Bitcoin's long term sustainability and continued interest in developing widely used software connect me with the community for what I believe will be the long and prosperous road ahead of us. I've been researching and exploring Bitcoin for over 3 years, and have taken an immediate interest to it and its expansive uses.
