Triangular Arbitrage Bot
A triangular arbitrage bot that monitors the blockchain for specific transactions that interact with decentralized exchanges.

Once found, it checks the trade volume to see if it will cause a significant enough price impact to create an arbitrage opportunity. If so, it will immediately calculate the best possible path for profit and submits the transaction.


A crypto payment gateway solution for the online gaming industry. Planned and developed a scalable serverless back-end architecture to monitor various blockchains for transactions with minimal downtime.

Built a front-end dashboard for projects to manage and monitor relevant data like deposits, withdrawals, and user and historical data.

Web VR
I was a sub-contractor for this project. I developed a WebVR environment for the National Heart Institute of Malaysia to showcase its hospital services and facilities.

Using 360-degree images provided by the primary contractor of the hospital, I stitched it together using Marzipano, then created the pop-up and enlightening experience using jQuery.

Ethereum Units Converter
I frequently use online tools to help me to do big numbers of conversions when developing Smart Contracts.

Unfortunately, the existing tooling is very restrictive and does not support custom decimals, so I built my tool and released it to the Ethereum community.
