Introduce yourself here!

Hello, I am Zak, a smart contract developer & part of the LibertyPie Team. We are building a 100% non-custodial, Permissionless and autonomous P2P & DeFi protocol for EVM based blockchains. OpenZeppelin has been an essential part of our code, We found OpenZeppelin whiles searching for a good & matured solidity library. I am glad to be part of this awesome group.

Hi @zakpie,

Welcome to the community :wave:

If you have administration tasks or need to automate functions you may want to look at OpenZeppelin Defender:

It would be great to have your input on: [Question] What are the building blocks of DeFi?

Thank You, I have checked OpenZeppelin defender and its a great tool, we will look more into it

Good afternoon everyone!

My name is Justin. I’m a parent attorney wirh an electrical engineering background based in New York City with about 3 years or mining and staking experience in crypto. I am here because I want to use your OS to run Keep3r jobs due to its ease of use vs running the scripts myself. Thanks for the awesome project and let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

Hi Victor (@Altaergo),

Thanks for introducing yourself.

Congratulations on completing your university studies. :champagne:
What were you studying?

Are you looking for work in the Crypto space? You could check out:

OpenZeppelin are hiring, so worth considering if/when you have the skills/experience.

I recommend going through: Solidity learning resources
If you have any good resources, please add/update so we can share with the community.

I was studying architecture, it is too long six years and I had to get that degree for my troubles. But I love crypto due to opportunities, it is night and day compared to architecture.
Am mostly self taught, but I have been following the trufflecon 2020 videos on Youtube, and I have membership on EatTheBlocks(founder is a nice guy).
I would love to work in crypto yes, though am not sure whether I can get some internships, because I feel I still have a lot to learn. Before I started, I thought it would be easy coding blockchain applications lol but after being around here for a while and learning how security is important, my biggest fear is getting my funds hacked lol. I would love to work for OpenZeppelin in future yes.

Hi Victor (@Altaergo),

There are lots of similarities with blockchain development and architecture of buildings, the consequences for making errors can be severe.

Asking and answering questions is a great way to learn. Also creating small projects, such as NFTs is fun.

In April 2017 I got started with blockchain, reading OpenZeppelin audits, using OpenZeppelin Contracts and playing Ethernaut, and now for the last 18 months I have been at OpenZeppelin, so definitely something to aim for.

I have heard about NFTs, they sound exciting, will definitely look into them.
What I like most about OpenZeppelin content is it is very well curated, and organized, so definitely makes learning easier.

Hi @DaveAppleton,

Thanks for introducing yourself :pray:

I have to ask, What is your favorite collectible?
The Peepeth badges are still some of my favorites. I see you have some:

Are you using NFTs in DeFi or just for art?

Not into collectibles in a big way - but I enjoyed supporting Peepeth in what little way we could.

We are using NFT’s all over the place.

I am working on a special Crypto Art platform ( which brings an interesting take on the art creation process.

At the same time, recognising that an NFT can represent many things, I tend to use them wherever appropriate.

Designed a few for, the latest being the CoinGecko to the moon series.

A post was split to a new topic: Do I have to leave the computer running while the relay is providing data or can I turn it off?

So many cool devs around, a privilege to be here. I will let them all have Happy Holidays, while I continue studying the blockchain.


Hi @Solidity-Snake,

Thanks for introducing yourself. What are you working on?
