What is the best project you’ve worked on? Either at a hackathon, on the side or at your job!

Just been doing some voluntary work with a really cool blockchain game start-up called Flowerpatch.app. It’s a farming game, with a proper game world, but you farm ‘cannabis’ strains and they become collectibles like cryptokitties on the blockchain (ERC20).

It’s a super cool project and they’ve got so much more functionality coming soon I think. High production value too. I’ve actually just produced an article about then for HN :slight_smile:

Hey Eliot, just read your article! Very nice concept! How did you come up with this idea? Very cool!

Hey, thanks! I didn’t come up with it, I’m just writing some stuff for them because I really like the project :slight_smile: I think they just wanted to build a great farming simulator but give it a twist, cannabis is becoming less taboo to talk about now, and I think games like these will help with education around the subject.

One of the best projects I have worked on would be The Lotos Project. Seeing how… ugly :upside_down_face: things were with the list of the most common passwords of each year (https://keepersecurity.com/blog/2017/01/13/most-common-passwords-of-2016-research-study/), my brother and I made an app that teaches you best practices about coming up with a password and was also a memorable, but also random password generator. Here is our app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=test.lotosnav

Still trying to figure out an answer for this one. It’s like choosing a favorite child.

Every project has pros and cons. I think if you exclude Hacker Noon, I find that I generally like writing code the most when the goal isn’t to make money. That’s pretty challenging because almost all projects are somehow tied to a direct or indirect financial incentive.

Not suggesting financial incentives are a bad thing…I just don’t think they necessarily correlate to happiness.

So given that, I think I got more pure pleasure out of writing simple games when I first started learning about programming before it became a career. Ultimately, I think my best projects will be in retirement.

The best project I’ve worked on, is one I’m still working on! I’ve been on the project for almost a year now. I’m providing outreach and online marketing input to it and it’s, in my eyes, a revolutionary concept that has its basis in the blockchain technology and it’s shielded by quantum safe security. A Decentralized Service Platform (DeSP) that will service Decentralized Private Network (DPN aka VPN), Decentralized Computing (DezComp as a Cloud), Teleporter (Messaging) among other future deployments.

I wrote an article in the Blog, Marketers are you ready for the next generation – Blockchain 3.0, hope you find it resourceful :slight_smile:

If you’d like to know more about the project, What is Quantum1Net
