Introduce Yourself to 1Hive Thread

I’m starting up this Introduce Yourself Thread for 1Hive users, and worker bees. It’s important for us to get to know a little about each other as we work together to effectively create and manage 1Hive

Please use this thread to introduce yourself :slight_smile:

Things to potentially include:

  • How you were introduced to 1Hive/xDAI
  • Where you’re geographically based out of
  • Background info on your personal, intellectual, professional, and academic interests
  • etc.

The above was inspired by: https://forum.makerdao.com/t/the-official-welcome-thread/771 as I go by MakerMan/Maker_Man over there.

I will add a few links here since there already is a welcome page but not one where people can, could or should introduce ourselves.

I am working on getting together another forum post that is a FAQ but intends to be a synopsis with links about everything you need to know about 1Hive.org but I just started working on this.

There is an #intro on the 1Hive discord. Will add link here.

Rather not introduce myself by name at this point. Everyone can just call me Eth_Man. :slight_smile:
On discord I am RogueTwo#6155

  • How I was introduced to 1Hive. By @sandpiper at Maker rocketchat.
  • geographically US.
  • Background - Long time freelance IT consult team lead on heavy iron (all forms of Unix BSD/SYSV variants) sysadm/system analyst specializing in restoring IT operations and process optimization. Education - physicist M.S. Solid State Theoretical Physics, Plasma Physics, Chemical Physics with a strong secondary background in EE (Both Analog and Digital with a focus on Digital), Human Machine Interface design and optimization, controls, both from a theoretical and practical standpoint.
  • Interests are far too numerous to list but run the full gamut from astrophysics, to nuclear and almost everything in between. Strong personal interest in poker, game theory, social dynamics, etc.
  • Why I am here because Ethereum L1 tx fees are high and everyone is looking for a solution. What 1Hive is doing with xDAI - the speed of the build and community gathering is impressive. I am highly interested in reducing sybil attacks using some sort of identification protocol, so the use of BrightID here is interesting. I also participate as Eth_Man in reddit.com/r/ethtrader and involved in that community.
    I have had a long term (decades now) interest in DAOs generally. Given my interests and fields of study are so diverse I consider myself to have a strong multidisciplinary background and can bring knowledge/studies from many fields to particular problems that most can’t.
  • Something you will learn from me because everyone who gets to know me knows they are my pet phrases when it comes to ‘proposals’.

I will often ask.

  1. What is the goal? and
  2. By what method(s) will we measure the achievement (or failure) of that goal?

I find good answers to the above two questions to drive success or failure and realize quite often we have to try 1000 times and fail to succeed once. A friend put it a better way. To able to be the genius you have to be willing to be the fool.

Usually with high powered individuals there is a lot of ego and emotion. I continue to work to moderate this because negativity rarely creates a positive result practically as well as socially. :wink:

Hi, I am Karen from Singapore. I promote crypto literacy via books, I wrote 2 and just created a comics book on how life will be impacted with Blockchain and crypto. I was trying to share with my 7 year old nephew about what kind of new world we maybe having…so the books makes a wonderful birthday present. Details at www.wishiknewcomics.com. I intent to give away 1 issue and partner with project owners to make it into a series. Thus, I thought the honey and Bees may create a great story about decentralised org.

I like comics cos Blockchain is too scary for most people. So, I wish more people will explore…and learn…slowly.

If you happen to be in Singapore, love to meet for coffee. I like to meet like minded people who are interested to build a happy world! I am also an advocate of minimalist and fan of Marie Kondo. So,you can guess it, Less is more …

May you be well and happy : )

Hey guys, alias is Blazar. I’ve been in the crypto scene for a few years now, and started Blaze Digital Assets to help facilitate people entering the crypto market. We also do customized cryptocurrency portfolios for people to maximize their gains.

I actually came across the 1hive project from the Aragon website, as I was interested in seeing which projects were building built using the Aragon DAO. Once I read more into the project, and seen how active the community was, i was definitely hooked to find out more.

Feel free to reach out to me on the discord if you need help with anything, im usually around and always willing to give a hand where i can :slight_smile:

I look forward to continuing to build this ecosystem, and seeing where this takes us all!

Hi :wave:,

My name is Seth, and I found this project through SourceCred, which is my main gig. Interests include community currencies, new cryptoeconomic mechanisms, and new forms of employment ( :fu:corporate jobs), so the 1Hive community, HNY, and of course pollen (using SourceCred to distribute HNY) has been amazing to find and watch unfold. If you’re new to SourceCred and have questions, don’t hesitate to ask me, or jump into the SourceCred Discord!

Hello! My name is Pedro, I’m from Portugal. I have no background in finance or computer science, but have been passionate about technology since I was a kid. I work as a cardiologist in a public hospital in my country. Got introduced to 1hive because of honeyswap and saw it could fix Uniswap’s major problem, and to an extent xDai could fix Ethereum’s problem too.

I don’t know how my profession/skill set can be of any use in this digital projects, but if any of you know let me know.

Hello guys, I’m Paolo. I’m italian but i live in the Arctic (Northern Norway), hence my nickname. I’m a journalist, writer, video-photo content creator, and i am a blockchain enthusiast, since i really think it has the potential to change this world in a positive way, if properly used. I’ve been therefore very well impressed reading of this community and its values. In this moment of growing popularity for xDai, Honeyswap, HNY, xMoon, i think it’s very important to join our efforts in order to succeed in both the technical and social, cultural challenges in play: would be great to show that the most brilliant technological & technical-financial solutions (like definitely xDai and Honeyswap, as a start) come along with the clear vision of a whole community, which is conscious and aware of itself and of the better future that everyone in this earth needs and deserves :slight_smile:

Hello Paolo @Arcticvs, have you heard about https://lensy.io/ ? it runs over Hive.io blockchain (nothing to do with 1hive) and you can tokenize your photos and sell limited editions of them. I thought you might be interested as a photo content creator. You can contact me in Discord santigs#9769 if you want to get additional info. I am not related to the project at all, but have been following their progress.
