BUIDLing products & startups is what keeps me going.
I believe we have to chart out our own paths - learn from others, and execute them in your own way.

Crowdfire - social media management, simplified
Helping users discover, schedule content, and manage all the social accounts from one place.
About the company
Crowdfire is a powerful social media tool used by businesses and individuals all over the world to drive social media engagement and growth. It works with Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Wordpress, Etsy, Shopify, Medium, 500px, Vimeo and many more platforms.
Crowdfire supports users with our mentions feature, composing posts, scheduling them for later. It also automatically finds and recommends articles and images your audience will love, so you can share them to all your social profiles and keep your timelines buzzing!
With Crowdfire, we realized while you can build large companies on top of these third party products like Facebook and Instagram, the downside is whenever they want they can change the rules of the game, and that can affect all the companies depending on them.
If you are looking at 200 million people today in crypto worldwide, this will go to a billion people in the future. There is no way the existing blockchains will be able to support that. Sharding is a known solution to solve this problem, which is what Shardeum is built on.
After multiple attempts, in 2010, I successfully finished building JustUnfollow, a social networking application, which helped people unfollow on Twitter
