Personal Website

https://alanhadyk.dev/
My personal website is a cutting-edge web application built with Next.js and Tailwind CSS, demonstrating my proficiency in front-end development and design.

In terms of styling, I swapped out styled-components for Tailwind CSS. This utility-first CSS framework enabled me to craft a custom, responsive design while writing less CSS. It made my website more performant by reducing the amount of CSS delivered to the client.

The source code for this website is openly available on my GitHub profile, encouraging the ethos of open-source contribution and demonstrating my coding practices. This transparency allows others to learn from, contribute to, and even critique my work, fostering a collaborative learning environment.

In conclusion, my personal website is a testament to my front-end development and design skills. It highlights my ability to stay abreast of industry advancements and showcases my commitment to continuous learning and improvement. The site's success in attracting business opportunities also underscores the value of these skills in the marketplace.

Cryptonetic

I am the founder of Cryptonetic. This project is not publicly available yet.

Why Cryptonetic?
• The top 100 wallets hold 18% of Bitcoin's value. The biggest players can easily control the market at the expense of millions of smaller investors. Join the revolution and defy the establishment!

How does Cryptonetic work?
• It's very simple—earn trust tokens on the Cryptonetic platform and spend them by voting for cryptocurrencies you believe in. Trust tokens reflect your belief in the value of a particular project. For 50% of the value of each deposit, we will purchase the cryptocurrency you voted for. At the end of each month, we will draw users to win cryptocurrencies purchased with trust tokens.

What is Cryptonetic?
• Cryptonetic is an infinite map that lists all cryptocurrencies, and cryptocurrency exchanges, sorted by the trust people have in them. You will find detailed information about cryptocurrencies such as trading volume, volume, exchange rate, and position on our list. We will help you decide which cryptocurrency exchange to choose based on information such as the number of cryptocurrencies available, stable coins, daily volume, and market/taker commission.
