  • Invented and designed what might be the first method of achieving fungible leverage without borrowing, reaching a $90 million cap.
Previously best performing IT helpdesk trainer at the largest IT outsourcing company; simultaneously ensuring quality for a dozen corporations, mostly SP500 military.


Ways to hire me:

1) Invent a new Protocol / Upgrade your protocol to V2
I am very confident that no matter what you are building I can make a major breakthrough for your project. I promise I am not otherwise arrogant (this is the only thing in life I am amazing at).

2) Game Theory Audits
Solidity Audits are not enough; any protocol with an equilibrium also needs a game theory audit. You could have one like this including simulations for under 10k: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bqw356AJnjVowdDIwk5unToRfnHYwchCyOTRncEpazY/edit?usp=sharing

3) Advisor
The cheapest way to get inventions and optimizations for your protocol out of me.

4) Buy existing inventions.
I am sitting on many inventions after a previous employer overspent investor money and the employer after that died. You can see them by signing an NDA. The most valuable one, is an unbelievable discovery that it is suboptimal to trade Vanilla Options on a standard order book. The next is a method for AMMs to automatically find the optimal fee without using any formulas. The third is leverage without borrowing (single asset perpetual leverage with no collateral, no margin requirements). The fourth is an improvement to CDP lending protocols that increases their capital efficiency by ~10% without additional risk. (created for the cofounder of makerdao just before he was killed). Fifth is an improvement to EIP1559 that can be built into wallets enabling cheaper than otherwise possible transactions in exchange for very slow but guaranteed inclusion.
