Become a sponsor to Sebastian Falbesoner

I am Sebastian, a computer engineer living in Vienna/Austria.

My GitHub activity primarily consists of contributing to Bitcoin Core in my spare-time by thoroughly reviewing PRs (conceptual reviews and code reviews), as well as opening own PRs (233 merged so far) to improve the codebase in various ways, mostly adding/improving tests and network code, refactoring, as well as clarifying the codebase and docs.

A portfolio of some of the milestone PRs throughout my first year of contributing:

Sponsorships funds will be used for making the development more efficient and pleasant (ranging from simple things as tea/coffee, food to e.g. rent for a prospering coworking space or new electrical devices for programming) and of course to give a huge motivational boost 🚀

[ First goal of having 7 sponsors has been reached on Dec. 11th 2020 🎉 👏 👌 -- thanks to all supporters! ❤️ ]

Research agenda for 2022:

@theStack

[Goal 2/n] Having 15 sponsors would give an *amazing* motivational boost for working on Bitcoin Core and my 2022 research topics agenda (Taproot, CoinSwap, Lightning). 🚀❤️ ✔️
