Before securing almost a half decade of experience in web3, I was an Electrical Engineering student and was volunteering the open source Android Custom ROM development. In my 4 years of engineering, I was able to secure a VU2 HAM radio license and got into Satellite Ground Station as a researcher, made it to the finalist teams of the Smart India Hackathon 2019 (software edition), won the Smart India Hackathon 2020 (hardware edition), best paper award (3rd rank) in IEEE ICCDW - Quo Vadis conference and Intel Edge AI scholarship.
I started my crypto journey back in 2017 and worked on 5 projects under different semi-technical roles until I came across Edgeware. Edgeware is a fairly distributed governance experiment turned into a self-sustaining ecosystem without any kind of VC backing. Edgeware introduced the 'Lockdrop' mechanism to the whole crypto space to follow and got participation from big names in the industry like Binance, Coinbase Ventures, Aragon DAO, Framework Ventures, etc. VCs/teams/DAOs/individuals.
Edgeware not only incubates projects but also incubates people! I participated in Edgeware's lockdrop event and later also became the first treasury-funded contributor back then in 2020. I started my Edgeverse contribution journey as a Community Manager and Edgeware community incubated as well as accelerated my career so far.
Meanwhile, I never stopped learning, participating in several hackathons, and making new connections in the whole space. Thus happy to expand my contribution journey through hackathons and fellowships on Devfolio!
