Gday ✌ I'm Adam aka @ausbitbank !

in introduceyourself •  2 years ago

I'm been lurking on steemit for 51 days already but I've avoided doing a real introduction till now..


Gday Steemit! I'm Adam aka @ausbitbank

I really don't take many photos or talk about myself when I can avoid it, I'm a pretty private person normally . In fact, I was reaaaally tempted to abort this and give you this pic instead ;)


Serious goatse vibes. Don't stare directly into it.

I'm a 32yo Aussie developer, crypto enthusiast, trader and father of 2.
I've been pretty obsessed with crypto ever since the $20 bitcoin bubble, and I've been loving the ride.

I've had heaps of jobs over the years doing everything from low end factory work, managing pool supplies store, backend infrastructure development, party supply distributor, telemarketer, web developer, tech support and I've kickstarted dozens of small scale businesses for all sorts of niche's as my focus is drawn to them and I recognise a need.


6 years ago. Before my kids broke me..

My life these days mostly revolves around caring for my 2 non-verbal autistic kids, trading cryptocurrency and creating content for steemit.

My interests are wide and varied. I know a little bit about a lot of things, and far too much about random obscure niche's that nobody cares about but me. I've written about some of my obscure obsessions under the #downtherabbithole tag.

Since I discovered steemit, my life changed. I'm completely obsessed in a way that I haven't felt since I first discovered bitcoin. I've been obsessively trying to absorb everything there is to know about steem, I've posted 539 times already and I created steemviz, steemleak, steemcap, steemUSD/SBDUSD indicator AND I'm currently working on steemface to make it easy to verify account ownership for new users with an established facebook presence.

I don't plan on leaving anytime soon. If anyone wants to know anything specific just ask!

Despite the lack of of engagement lately, both myself and my partner @krystle will continue to put out quality original creations for the Steemit community :)

ohmy god you are sooo beYOUTIFUL! I got goosebumps just looking in your eyes, and I bet they are even more beautiful for the richness of your kids. You know we all break, children or not. I think its a sign of robust health! Like the seed has to crack etc. I have so much good vibes for your heart and @krystle s just from the encouragement you have shown me a total stranger on steemit, the posts you comment on, the brave and honest way you are, thanks for being you

Aww thanks @elissahawk that means a lot :)
Even with the permanent bags under my eyes ? lol

Hey! Looks like you have some cool projects on the go. I need to find time to look into developing something if I can come up with some ideas. Trying to get back into developing for fun, as opposed to the boring stuff I do at work.

·

Thanks @steevc , definately look into it ! The frameworks like steemjs make things so easy, and theres plenty of people that can help get you up to speed in steemit.chat :)

I'm really enjoying just developing what interests me, in such an open transparent system - the money is a bonus!

Welcome out of the darkness from another Aussie Steemian tragic... unfortunately I dont possess the creative genius you do, with your wonderful steemit tools listed in your post.

Thanks stephen , always good to connect with other aussies :) Thx for the compliment, but ..

·

I followed even though you haven't posted much lately :)

Glad to put a face to the username! I think it's nice of you to do the #introduceyourself post after you gained some rep on Steemit and not right at the beginning. It makes more sense to do that!

·

Thanks @anduweb ! I didn't even think of that but it does make sense - I was just chicken to put my face out there.. This is seriously one of the first photos I've had taken since that 2010 photo lol, all my pics are of my kids :P

Ripped the bandaid off now, maybe I'll even do some video content in the future

I'm glad you broke the ice man!

Me too! Just got a vote from @ned :D

some morning love from the whales. Who would say no to that :D:D

Finally see a face behind the username, upvoted!

·

Thanks mate! Upvoted todays steem report :)

I stared directly into it... It has disturbed me deeply.

·

I know right - The little steem logo was for your protection. Once eye contact is made its hard to break

·
·

It looks like an anus. Not to be intentionally crude but that was the very first thing I saw...

Can't help myself sometimes.

You (everyone!) should investigate goatse, I tried to warn lol

That is a deep hole of the internet I do not wish to delve into.

Pun intended.

I know a little bit about a lot of things, and far too much about random obscure niche's that nobody cares about but me.

That's me lol, that's why I focused on a couple "specific" subjects to post about on my introduction post. Great introduction man! :))

BTW that was @sandwich 's steem.cloud on the tablet in the photo, this webcam shot doesn't do it justice - check it out !

Nice introduction man.
Keep up all your hard work.

Thanks pappa!

Thanks for what you doing for steemit and all of us!
