I go by Silto on the internet, you can find my identity from this nickname pretty easily but honestly Silto is simpler.
I can’t remember exactly how I was introduced to Maker, I’ve been following the crypto space for years, so it was pretty logical that at some point I’d discover it. I also participated in a crypto project at the start of the bear market and did the cryptoeconomics of the stablecoin we envisioned for our system. We didn’t raise enough to meet our soft cap, reimbursed investors and closed the business. Now that I think about it I might have stumbled upon Maker while researching stablecoins at that time. My interest about it has grown since then and I think it has great potential.
I’m a small holder of MKR, I have some DAI in DSR, I have used Compound and voted a couple of times.
I’m from France, in Lyon to be precise. This is the point where I apologize for my english, I understand it perfectly but my sentences construction can get weird.
I’m a 28 years old electronics and IT engineer, I work as a freelance in web full stack dev, and am creating a web business on the side. I am more of a generalist than a specialist, even though 4 years of web dev has made me pretty good in Node/React/GraphQL stuff.
On the technological side I’m interested in security and cryptography, blockchain tech, and generally try to stay informed on tech (theoretical and innovation, not the startup ecosystem).
Outside of tech my main interests are economics, mainly monetary policy and development economics, with a focus on heterodox economics (main reads: Michael Hudson, Dani Rodrik, Erik Reinert, Steve Keen, David Graeber, Richard Werner, Ha-Joon Chang, …). I keep an eye on geopolitics, but I’m not remotely close to being an expert on that.
I trade a bit of BTC with low leverage/low expectations, I find the discipline and social aspects of it interesting.
The thing that triggered my registering here is that I wanted to post this: Thoughts about governance security and logic
I’ve posted a bit on the Maker Reddit, but I’d be happy to discuss here too.
