Nerd for Hire

I have more than a decade of experience in value and its transfer, working with alternative- and crypto-currencies and having created my own currency system, based on prime numbers, in 2010, which since last year also has been selectively minted as NFTs (ERC-721).

I started an Ethereum-mining enterprise in 2018, through which I gained hands-on experience working with the world’s most actively developed blockchain. I am now creating Web 3.0 Dapps with VisualStudioCode/Truffle/Ganache.

Lately I also specialised in EDI implementation, working for one of the country’s leading gastronomic companies: I digitised the creditor’s accounting, by mapping the transferred EDI billing data in Abacus (using JavaScript), as well as newly implementing the ZUGFeRD EDI Format and a new incoming E-mail workflow at the company – all of which greatly reduced expenditure by saving human resources and using a more cost-effective interface.
I also worked as a project manager, coordinating the development with the supplier-side and ensuring compatibility across systems (SAP/Abacus) and harmonising the data-flows.

I have been a nerd ever since getting my first modem at 12, later studying Media Art at one of the worlds’ leading art-schools and gaining in-depth knowledge of various graphics-tools and experience in Web-design and development with WordPress, HTML5 and CSS.

The ROBIN™ Currency on the Ethereum-blockchain

I am very happy, that starting with the 257 ROBIN™ note, the ROBIN™ currency is now also available as an NFT – a non-fungible token (ERC-721) on the Ethereum-blockchain.
This means, two things:

The ROBIN™ coin and notes can now be secured on the second largest and most future-proof blockchain: Even if someone were to “copy” (fake) the ROBIN™ coin or note, only the one physical product corresponding to the one of token holder is certified to be the original ROBIN™. (This makes investing in more expensive, smaller-denomination ROBIN™ safer.)

If you want to purchase ROBIN™ securely without the physical exchange of a ROBIN™ note, you can do so now. On different marketplaces for NFTs you can you now buy a digital certificate that you are the owner of a ROBIN™, without necessarily having to buy the physical ROBIN™ note.

South Sea Bubble by Hogarth Courtesy of the Trustees of the British MuseumMidas, Transmuting All, Into Paper, by James Gillray, 1797. Courtesy of the Trustees of the British MuseumThis exhibition asks: what does ‘the market’ look like?  What does money really stand for?  How can the abstractions of high finance be made visible?  Who is finance for?  The exhibition charts how the financial world has been imagined in art, illustration, photography and other visual media over the last three centuries in Britain and the United States.  The project asks how artists have grappled with the increasingly intangible and self-referential nature of money and finance, from the South Sea Bubble of the 18th century to the global financial crisis of 2008.  The exhibition includes an array of media: paintings, prints, photographs, videos, artefacts, and instruments of financial exchange both ‘real’ and imagined.  Indeed, the exhibition also charts the development of a variety of financial visualisations, including stock tickers and charts, newspaper illustrations, bank adverts, and electronic trading systems.

The Beginning is Near © Alexandra ClotfelterShow Me The Money demonstrates that the visual culture of finance has not merely reflected Occupy posterprevailing attitudes to money and banking, but has been crucial in forging – and at times critiquing – the very idea of ‘the market’.  The exhibition toured three distinct regions of the country, beginning at Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art.  It was then shown across two sites simultaneously:John Hansard Gallery, part of Southampton University, and Chawton House Library in Hampshire, which was owned by Jane Austen’s brother, himself implicated in a financial scandal of the 1810s.  The show continues here at the People’s History Museum in Manchester.

The exhibition includes newly commissioned works by Cornford & Cross, James O Jenkins, Immo Klink, Jane Lawson, Simon Roberts, David Stedham, and others, alongside the UK premieres of works by Molly Crabapple, Thomas Gokey, Goldin + Senneby and Wolfgang Weileder.  It also includes major works by artistsThe Lost Horizon © Cornford & Crossincluding Bill Balaskas, Mark Boulos, Robin Bhattacharya, Rhiannon Williams, and Carey Young.  Woven into the contemporary works are both historical images and artefacts from the banking profession.  The former include prints by William Hogarth, James Gillray and George Cruikshank, the leading graphic artists of the 18th and 19th centuries.  Archive ephemera from Barclays, TSB and other banks are shown with 19th century American cartoons, and historical board games created to give the public an insight into the realm of finance.
