Vukašin Gostović

Im makemake and I like it when people put blocks in a chain and turn that into a database. Love building useful programs and anything infra. I like reading about psychology, sociology, and philosophy. I have been making computers do stuff since i was ~11 years old. Rust is pretty cool. I'll mostly be writing about Ethereum and blockchains as that's what my time is mostly preocupied by. Feel free to reach out via my links below if you have any inquiries!

Due to this, we must have a very high standard of code quality and readability. I am releasing the Rainshower solidity guidelines to gather feedback and suggestions. I hope that projects adopting the following guidelines will make DeFi more secure and auditable.
