In the old days, countries whose currencies collapsed would dollarize – they’d import dollar bills and start using that as money. Ten years from now, that will be a relic. Countries will dollarize using permissionless stablecoins, and central banks around the world will ultimately fear crypto-dollarization as a check against runaway inflation.

Bitcoin miners generated more than $15 billion in revenue during 2021. Bitcoin miners made more than $15 billion in revenue over the course of 2021. The estimate represents a year-over-year increase of 206%. It should be noted that the estimate is premised on the notion that mining companies sell their accrued digital assets to pay for electrical power and other resources; some miners hold on to some of their mined coins.

 I truly believe that now is the greatest time to be alive and it has never been easier to experiment and build products and identify niches where a specific product or service can add significant value. There is a shear amount of tools out there, from ideation, to development to sales and marketing tools. Now is also the time to try things out and also to fail and more importantly to fail fast. I can also now retrospectively say that I learned the importance of fast iterative development cycles. My initial projects might have taken several months working in silo to only then to realise at launch that the market I imagined is non-existent. In my latest projects, I am able to go from idea to first working MVP in just under 2 weeks (and that by working in parallel on a corporate full-time job). Browse below through my various projects, I completed and/or participated. Some of them ended at idea stage, some others actually went live and have failed and some others are ongoing. To each projects, I am sharing with you my learnings, so you don’t necessarily need to tap into those.  👨🏽‍💻

<about>

I am Rizvi and I am passionate about startups, tech, anime and other geeky stuff. What I enjoy most is building digital products from scratch. I am fortunate to have built a diverse set of skills over the past years, which allows me to systematically identify pain points, draft a solution in my head and on paper, build a distinctive and beautiful user interface and finally bring my idea to life by directly building the product.💯 

Moreover, I enjoy working in teams and for many projects, I was able to inspire people to work alongside me to deliver something amazing. With my startups like Sharryup and Podstellar, I also got heavily involved on the sales and marketing side. It includes things like drafting a conveying pitch deck (which of some you find on the project page) and pitch it to over 20 different VC’s as well as taking care of the product-market fit and scaling of the platforms. I enjoy being at the interface where product happens, working closely with tech, marketing and sales alike. I dislike stiff corporate setups where innovation is inhibited through politics and bureaucracy (though I learned to also deal with this). Most importantly, I enjoy life, I like to learn continuously be it on the job or in my free time. Learn more below about my experiences, skills and projects and contact me anytime on 🍻beers@rizvihaider.com or at    ☕️coffee@rizvihaider.com. Especially if you are an entrepreneur, I would like to talk with you and share experiences.

🚀 Sunday Snippets

Every Sunday I share via email anything which comes to my mind, be it a new startup I am excited about, what’s popping in the VC world or some learnings or insights from a book or podcast. If you want to receive these weekly emails, please sign up below.
