Smart contract auditor and cryptography nerd, follow me on my Twitch channel Thorrwulf. It's possible to contact me on Telegram at @Thorrwulf (opens in a new tab).

I built my first p2p client and hub at 14y in C++, now I prefer Rust. The long part…

As a senior blockchain developer with expertise in Rust and full stack JavaScript, I have a strong foundation in both back-end and front-end technologies. With several years of experience in the industry, I have a proven track record of delivering high-quality, scalable solutions to complex problems. I am particularly skilled at identifying and addressing vulnerabilities in smart contracts and web applications, ensuring that they are secure and reliable for use in production environments. My analysis and expertise on blockchain technology and cybersecurity have been featured in national and international media and press. In my free time, I enjoy staying up-to-date with the latest trends in the tech industry and contributing to open source projects.

I'm the co-founder of Devoleum (opens in a new tab), a web app that uses blockchains and linked open data to make supply chain data open and traceable, our project is internationally awarded by Forbes USA and many others. In 2016 I have won a national hackathon with "Dammi la mano" an end-to-end cryptography geolocation app. I have a Psychology MSc. I'm a privacy and diversity activist.
