Progress Report - January 2020


I post a progress report showing what I did and how my products performed each month. Last month’s report can be seen here.

What did I do

Productive Hours in January Hours worked on side-projects in January

I worked 61 productive hours last month. I really made use of those weekends. 💪

To make these progress reports a bit more interesting, from now on I’ll post my favourite song, TV show, and article I read last month.

What was worked on

We finished the Vigor DAC landing page. I started working on a new eosjs helper library - there are just so many tasks I keep reimplementing over and over. It’s time to bundle them and make them reusable. I’ll share more news when it’s in a beta version.

Just in time for the end of the month, I finished the MVP for my first side project of 2020. An on-chain EOS arbitrage trading bot for Bancor <> NewDex. I’m really curious to see if it can outperform the existing ones. I’ll gradually keep adding more features and trading pairs to it. I also think this would make an interesting post series - I had to overcome quite some oddities of DEXes trying to shut down auto-trading.

Platform Growth


Sessions went down to 7,585 on my website.

Website Traffic

I wrote two small posts on my blog.

  1. Goals for 2020
  2. How to rollback to an older EOSIO.CDT


My twitter followers increased by 15 to 571.

Learn EOS Development Sales

I sold 4 books last month.

What’s next

Do the 20% on the trading bot that’ll bring 80% of the results until B1’s Voice launch. There’ll probably be some nice opportunities for developing products around Voice.
