Kumar Abhirup

I founded my first company (Beam Community, Inc.) when I was 16,
and successfully exited after running it for two years.

I am a 19yo Software Engineer, having built many projects in past, I am on a path aiming to solve humanities' most pressing issues, in an iterative fashion, starting from most trivial things imaginable.

Led a hackathon team in Korea Blockchain Week in August 2022, and won 2nd place at two hackathons for judiciary.app, spent three months in Nonce Korea hackerhouse in Seoul, South Korea. I am in the evergreen process of learning, and I am loving it!

Currently, Software Engineer at Airchat ⚒ī¸

    Product Manager & Web 3.0 Developer, December 2021 - August 2022
    Monument.app is a Blockchain Start-up, which helps create collections of significant moments within a creator's journey. Each moment is represented by a collectible NFT that can be bought and owned by a creator's closest supporters. Creators share their stories through minting new moments, financially enabling them to pursue their dreams.

    As a Full-stack Web 3.0 Developer, I helped create all the Monument Smart Contracts currently deployed on the Ethereum Mainnet. Wrote and thoroughly tested the Monument ERC721 NFT Contract (got it audited back and forth by professionals), and the Monument Marketplace Contract that supports buying & selling of NFTs and manages its auctions in a secure fashion.

    As a Product Manager, I managed a team of 5 developers working on the Frontend, Backend, Web3 & the Monument iOS App. I brought order in chaotic times, and helped the company ship its MVP in a month using Scrum & Agile methodologies.
