Professional Goals & Objectives

I am passionate early adopter of Blockchain. I've started my mining farm based on Bitmain S9 ASIC hardware, I've learnt all what is required technically to be an active full node of the Blockchain, As I am working and interacting with local Kuwaiti Government on different projects through my company, I had the chance to talk about Blockchain to encourage IT and Business stakeholders to get the benefits of this emerging technology. I've developed some initiatives with local government entities as Blockchain use cases to as the Prove Existence Of A Document (Correspondence between gov. entities) and other national identity verification use cases. I am also working with some clients to define their private blockchain for digital currency.
