Hello, I’m Simon aka sleepdeficit (aka ₴Ⱡ33₱ aka
I’m a developer and writer for ARK and MarketSquare. I started working for ARK in 2017 shortly after being elected to the ARK Community Committee and have since attended and helped organize various conferences and hackathons. I currently contribute to ARK’s documentation, write about the latest NFT projects, and love covering technical crypto-related topics.
When I’m not busy battling centralization, I enjoy creating music and exploring the latest in art & technological trends.
Below are just some of the MSQ articles that I’ve been fortunate to author:
- CryptoMories - NFTs with Heart and Soul
- NFT Communities - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
- Making Deals with the NFT Devil - Blood Pact
- Scaling: Peeling Back the Layers
- Fang Gang - Fangtastically Fresh NFTs
- Gamified NFT Panda-monium - Paladin Pandas
- The Scalability Trilemma
- Bloomberg Interview Recap: An Ethereum Geek Makes Valid Arguments
As a long-time member of the ARK team, I'm not at all ashamed to say that the network wouldn't be nearly as robust without their contributions.
Keep up the excellent work, Alessio 💪
It's a truly rare and great project that really makes you feel like part of the family 🖤
Awesome art, daily giveaways, and an ambitious roadmap that Junshi & Paca consistently deliver on 💪
Just an all around high quality project!
Mad props, Fang Gang team ✊
I'm personally very happy to see new features and improvements being rolled out consistently. Kudos to their devs 🦾
Overall, I'd say that MetaMask is probably the best web wallet out there for getting the job done, whether on mobile or desktop.
As another reviewer said, it would be nice to see more advanced analytics or the ability to identify rarity. Their use of the wyvern protocol has a lot of good benefits but also seems to drastically hinder portability and off-platform usability vs. something like an ERC-1155 asset (though that is still an option).
OpenSea has its fair share of drawbacks but overall stands towards the front of the pack when it comes to NFT platforms.
