Progress Report - October 2021


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 October Hours worked on side-projects in October

I worked 156 productive on side projects hours last month. I noticed this includes C4 but it probably shouldn’t be considered a side-project of mine anymore.

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

  • I participated in all C4 contests again.
  • Learned some Rust and started building a Solana NFT analyzer CLI.
  • Bought fewer NFTs than last month, I’m starting to have NFT fatigue, especially with the 10k/10k projects without utility. Got rugged by Piggy Sol Gang who suddenly decided to go back on their promise to pay out Alpha Art market royalties.

Platform Growth


Sessions increased a bit to 6,383 on my website.

Website Traffic

Published one new blog post:


My twitter followers increased by 324 to 1751. The growth came mostly from my tweet about the “How to become an auditor” blog post.

I set a new record for my most liked tweet as well, it was a shitpost replying to a cringe @Meta tweet.

Shitposting is indeed easier than thoughtful tweets.


Learn EOS Development

I sold 4 books last month.

What’s next

More of the same same, auditing, maybe some Rust&Solana, maybe some bug bounties, maybe some real life.
