His decision to venture into blockchain engineering was driven by the technology’s novelty and potential. At a time when blockchain was still an emerging field, it presented a unique opportunity to engage with cutting-edge technology without the constraints of long-established practices. “It was thrilling to dive into a space where pioneering work was still possible,” he reflects. 

For Jamie, the most compelling aspect of his role is the constant variety and challenge it offers. “Every day brings something new,” he explains, highlighting how the dynamic nature of blockchain keeps his work engaging.
