Continuing the discussion from Introduce yourself:

Hey all, nice to be here in the forums.
I am living and working (not in blockchain sphere yet) in Germany and have been following Ivan’s channel for quite sometime now. I was introduce to bitcoin and blockchain in late 2016. I shall be starting to learn more about the technical part of the blockchain and programming over it via smart contract programming course.
My expectation and intention from the course is to learn more about programming in general and try to be in this space for long time.



Hi All,

I am Aashish from USA working in the field of finance for past 12 years working mostly in the field of IBM TM1 a forecasting and budgeting tool. I have taken a break from my work to learn something new and give my career a boost. Then I was looking to learn something new and interesting and came across block chain. I was fascinated by this technology and wanted to learn more and now want to peruse my career in the same. I have done ETL coding before but nothing in the field of C or java. So trying to learn as much as I can from this course. I hope that I can learn more of programming in this course which I always was afraid of. So guys see you all in this course and All the best to everyone on this course.


Hi All… So refreshed and glad to be part of the new decentralised community!
For 10s of thousands of years civilised humans have lived in barter value systems of equivalent skills and professions. The most important glue that holds these systems together is respect and love. I’m excited to reimagine these systems for the modern age through decentralised value systems with a focus on self-responsibility, love, respect and care for each other.

Hi, my name is Dave with over twenty years in financial services and financial markets. As a risk and finance professional with an accountancy background, I am eager to ‘retool’ through an understanding of new ledger technologies, fintech and alternative currencies for the purpose of development. I was born in South Africa where I currently work and live. New fintech has the potential to help build a more sustainable society that encourages new local trade flows and positive economic connections. Glad to be on board!

Hey Y’all. I’m from George, South Africa. I’m a dentist who has always been interested in futurism, future technologies and the society-wide impacts thereof. I also have a Libertarian bent with an aversion to centralized economic and political power structures. So I obviously find Blockchain exciting. I also own a fair amount of cryptocurrencies and really wanna learn how they work ‘under the hood’. Peace

It’s awesome to be part of this academy and I’ve learnt a lot in these few hours since I’ve started. It’s great to be a part of this forum and look forward to chatting to all of you :+1:

Hello, My name is Edwin and I’m from the Netherlands. i want to learn as much as possible about programming blockchain.

Greetings everyone, I’m very excited to a part of this community and I’m also very grateful for Ivan, thank you for doing everything you do man.

My name is David Simo, I live in Massachusetts, USA. I’m completely new to coding and programming but I’ve been investing in crypto since the last bull run at the end of 2017 and ever since I’ve been a student of the technology. Never would I be thinking or even be interested in learning about this amazing technology if it wasn’t for Bitcoin.

I hope I can learn from all of you and hopefully one-day others will learn from me.

Hello my name is Thaddeus, I love the whole blockchain and cryptocurrency theme; That is why I look for content that helps me to know more about this wonderful world and to contribute as well. I love programming and therefore I want to learn the basics of Bitcoin, Etherium and EOS and in the future to be able to add value.

Hi everyone, nice to be here in the forums.
I am new to blockchain and programming. I just started to learn about two weeks ago. I strongly agree with Mr. Ivan on how important it is to share ideas and communicate amongst ourselves, it makes the learning process easier and lively. Once again, it’s my pleasure to be here. Thanks

Hi All,

I’ve finally bought in to the concept of BUIDL. I regularly watch ivanontech on YouTube (@thizzcake) as I drive to work in the mornings. Aspire to be a digital nomad eventually and am truly fascinated by the developments in crypto.

Looking forward to learning more and maybe even becoming a skilled professional in the new financial world! I may even pivot my entire career trajectory overall if I’m afforded the luxury!

Seriously, imagine you are holding and suddenly, market cap shoots past 1, then 2, then 8 trillion USD. Well my dudes, then we will have the luxury to try something new. The prospect of that future is as refreshing as it is exciting.

Anyways, thanks @ivan for the spooky discount and I’m drinking black coffee too my friend - no cream, no sugar is the way to go!
