About Daniel Hong (@unifiedh)

Thanks for visiting unifiedh.com, my personal blog and website.

If you don't see most of my blog posts on the front page, it's because I only put posts written in English on the main website. The rest of my posts are written in Korean, and is configured to be automatically routed under the "ko" directory. If you can understand Korean, or willing to use Google Translate, please click the "Korean" link on the menu bar to read the rest of my Korean posts.

I am a freelance blockchain platform engineer and an undergraduate university student, from South Korea ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท but occasionally happens to be in San Fransisco, US ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ or Sydney, Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ. I happened to be one of the (very few) people who received Satoshi Nakamoto's initial unveiling of the Bitcoin white paper via a mailing list back in October 2008. I was also one of the earliest people to mine a block on the Bitcoin blockchain with 2009-era PC hardware (unfortunately I didn't keep the keys for them), and one of the earliest to participate in Ethereum's ICO (also unfortunately I didn't make a lot of money from all the crypto craze).

I have been following this space ever since the Satoshi Nakamoto days on bitcointalk.org to the current, mostly scammy but interesting crypto and blockchain industry.

Before working with blockchain and crypto, I have mostly worked with kernel engineering, virtual machines and compilers in both iOS and Android spaces.

Here are some projects that I am currently working on:

  • Gemer - A verifiable stateless computing environment for general-purpose, decentralized applications
  • Geemail - A new email-based communication solution based on Gemer

I also worked for other projects part-time either as a developer or an advisor prior to working on my own; however, due to legal, PR and other various reasons I would not put them up on this page, LinkedIn or my resume. If you would like to find out more about those, please contact me directly using the links below.
