Hi Manuel,
I am Haris Shaukat and currently looking for internship training or mentorship in the field of blockchain. I am student in Asia Pacific University of technology and innovation (Malaysia) doing bachelors hons in Computer Science with specialism in Intelligent systems and recently completed my 2nd year out of 3 and now looking for internship training/mentorship along with that I have developed huge interest in the field of blockchain and cryptocurrencies and really thrived and eager to learn more about this technology with some practical experience with you i am well familiar with all the basics of blockchain technology and know a bit of solidity too but haven’t worked much on it yet. I saw this posting of you and see that you are offering a great opportunity by helping trainees or beginners like me excel in this field so i would love to be mentee of you and i assure you my full dedication to whatever the learning experience you will be providing me.

Hi everyone! I’ve reviewed all of your posts and decided to move forward with chat “interviews” with @Kayaba-Attribution, @notravarius, @elite9095, @karmacoma, @VeryCB and @Jan. If you are on the list and are still interested in the mentoship, please message me privately so we can chat! Our goal will be to launch a full dapp in the next 3 months. Some ideas I have:

  • minimask: a minimalist and fast(er) version of metamask
  • nft building game: for example each NFT is a railroad track, and you can place them in a shared map.
  • nft crafting system: from erc20 materials, build items
  • nft genetics engine: each NFT is a DNA strand which can “reproduce”.
  • betting games: deposit ETH, use hashed commits to announce decisions, iterate rounds of some game, at the end, winner takes all deposits.

If you message me, please pick one idea (from my list or your list) to discuss in more detail, and we’ll take it from there.

To everyone else, thanks for applying, and hope you find some other mentor! Honestly, picking the finalists was harder than I expected…

pairing closed. I chose @Jan as my first mentee. Thanks to everyone who applied and hope you find a great mentor soon!
