Hi, I'm Damian Mee

I write code, apply cryptography, and live decentralized.

I’m a Github addict, involved with open-source & Bitcoin for over a decade. I slow-travel experiencing the world the way I like it. I’m from the generation that thinks throwing stones into a lake is exhilarating.

So far, I’ve lived in:

And spent 1 month or less in:

I like Bitcoin. I like things built with it (opentimestamps, Lightning, Bitrefill, Rootstock). I remember $30 per coin, and I enjoy boating!

If you’d like to pitch me your ICO, please supply all of the details here ๐Ÿ˜Š.


Recently, I speak mostly about Bitcoin & Lightning Network. Before that, I used to organize, and occasionally speak on GPG meetups.

Some of my archival slides can be found here. To schedule, please see the contact section ๐Ÿ˜.

Luckily, that changes with the recent Github announcement. This is a quick guide on how to set it up with your keybase.io account. Keybase Jump to the git stuff, I already have Keybase. Create keybase.io account Keybase is still not publicly available, but you can ask me or anyone on Keybase for an invite. Read more
