Progress Report — September 2021

What did I do

Productive Hours in September
  • Article of the Month: I finally read the Moloch post after which MolochDAO is named. It’s very hyped but it’s justified, go read it if you haven’t. Disclaimer: I stopped reading at part VI — the “Gnon” part.
  • Song of the Month:

What was worked on

  • I participated in all C4 contests again. I received the biggest single-contest payout so far for Notional Finance
  • I started learning Solana because I don’t want to think twice before sending a transaction (fees), better UX, and great developer adoption. The developer documentation is horrible though. Reminds me of the early EOS days that made me write a book to fix it. I did Paulx’s tutorial and created integration tests for it. It’s nice to write the contracts and tests in the same language and be able to share code between them.
  • I bought more NFTs (on Solana; none of the valuable ones, I dislike their art and would rather be right than make money. Might buy a Galactic Gecko, I like their artwork.)
  • I started reading books again. Read Dostoevsky’s “Notes from Underground”. Can recommend it, the first part is hilarious, the second part can be skipped. Also, read Cedric Villani’s “Birth of a Theorem” to gain insights into how a Field Medalist winner’s works. But there were not many insights in it for me, just that he was obsessed with the math problem he worked on (Landau damping) and thought about it every waking minute. It’s still a nice read though.
