lend me your seeds...
To whom it may concern in both the Monero and global cryptocurrency communities,
To the friends I've made among the principled individuals attracted to the Monero community, and any others who stand for its perceived common ideals,
This is Paul 'endogenic' Shapiro – part-time Monero contributor; full-time managing partner, CEO, and lead developer at MyMonero since 2016; and occasional right-hand of the Monero core team member and founding lead code maintainer, Ric 'fluffypony' Spagni, himself.
I come to you for the first and, if this proposal is funded, only time on the Monero FFS/CCS fundraising platform after a particularly unexpected and shockingly illuminating journey over the past few months.
I believe that in January-March 2020, I cracked most or all parts of how to rapidly bring Monero to daily life in a huge range of sectors from small to global scale, and invented a new system I think I know how to roll out to increase the number of daily transactions on the Monero network by probably more than 3-4 orders of magnitude over the next year or two if it works even moderately.My past work on Monero
I've mostly been taking one step at a time since 2016 and have learned a lot while evangelizing Monero in the fintech and blockchain worlds, and on crypto-Twitter (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14).
In February I attended Stanford Blockchain Conference 2020 and talked with developers of new, fake privacy projects.
