bonus points

  • experience with cryptocurrency and blockchain (address generation, transaction construction, use cases, software daemons, wallet infrastructure and anything related to this evolving field)
  • any experience or understanding using Ethereum or other Smart Contract based systems (familiarity with Solidity is a big plus)
