I’m a rather prodigious 51 year old commentator at Bitcointalk.org (BCT) under various usernames, most notably AnonyMint from 2013/4 when I was involved in several discussions/debates with Daniel Larimer (@dantheman), who I understand is the creator of Bitshares and co-author of the Steem white paper.
My real name is Shelby Henry Moore III and you may view my photo at LinkedIn. Perhaps the reason for the sunglasses is one of my eyes was gouged (out but reinserted) on 12/1/1999.
I’ll be writing some blog posts suggesting improvements to Steem. I wrote some posts criticizing Steem's design under my most recent BCT username iamnotback. I have decided to try to suggest improvements for Steem, so hopefully my effort will be construed as helpful and constructive to Steem's community and investors. I hope everyone will respect that I need to remain frank, constructively critical, and not confirmation biased by the opportunity to earn money from blogging.
My time opportunity cost for blogging is high because I am also a blockchain developer and I have an unreleased design for a superior decentralized and scaling blockchain that I claim fixes the problems in Satoshi’s proof-of-work system. I paused that work to make time to attempt to analyze and improve Steem.
I contemplate potential for synergy between my work and Steem, but this is not yet certain or clear. I have been invited to contact Steem’s CEO Ned. Let’s first see if my blog posts add any value to the brainstorming discussions.
It is also possible that I may blog about health, specifically my 4+ years fight with chronic auto immune illness and the good health techniques I've adopted.
