Hello fellow smart contract enthusiasts:
My name is Bradley Layton and I found myself here via prior work on an engineering blockchain project that is currently in limbo. After speaking with my pal Matt Cutler and his colleagues at BlockNative, it appears as if OpenZeppelin may be the best place to be in terms of providing support as well as code that could become part of a new standard.
My goal is to become a proficient enough programmer so that I can author my own code to run on on the Ethereum protocol and establish an engineering blockchain that becomes an ASME / IEEE / NIST / Federal Reserve standard.
FYI, I have seen others go to prison in MI and MT for abusing cryptocurrency. These are people I either know personally, or who are colleagues of people I know personally.
I also attended the inaugural meeting of the Energy Blockchain Consortium where I met some fairly accomplished and talented old-school programmers. I’m not a very talented programmer myself, but understand code fairly well, having taught myself languages such as html, sh, bash, csh, sed, awk, grep, C, MATLAB, Mathematica, Fortran, Pascal, BASIC, etc.
Now I need your help in getting a smart contract up and running on a small cluster of computers that I want to run as servers before testing with a broader network.
Looking forward to good things!
