Hi, welcome to the personal homepage of Hunter Beast, also known as "cryptoquick"

I chose the name in 2005 and used it in IRC chats on FreeNode, before cryptocurrency was a thing. (and back when FreeNode was still cool)

I registered this domain back in 2009, before I'd ever heard of Bitcoin.

I've specialized in Rust, Bitcoin, & Lightning (and other Bitcoin-only layres), but I don't feel like I came to those things particularly early.

After doing lots of research, I came to realize this:

Bitcoin is solving the biggest problem... all of money.

The old system of global finance can no longer accurately measure the distribution of scarce goods.

Tools are needed to trust less and ask for permission less. That's where Bitcoin comes in.

Lightning is Bitcoin's scaling layer. Peer to peer directional payment channels, without global state.

Fees are low, and TPS are high. Lightning is like the TCP to Bitcoin's IP.

Bitcoin doesn't have to be perfect to replace all the money of the world.

Anyway, these days, maybe I'd prefer to go by "bitcoinslow", but instead I squat cryptoquick as many places as I can find to avoid scammers.

I will never ask you for money, be it in fiat or in crypto. Do not fall for scammers!

NOTE: At this point, I don't think I'll ever need to do a traditional job search, so, please do not reach out to me about "new opportunities", thanks.
