Take it away Robert!

Introduce yourself?

My name is Robert Marshall and I am a Certified IT Operations Specialist with 9 years of experience as an Infrastructure Engineer. I have a keen interest in IT Security and professional development experience with Rust, Python, Java and VBA.

Prior to a career in IT, I spent 13 years in psychology understanding how thought functions. I am a published author of philosophy who has proposed a new therapy model.

All-round Crypto enthusiast and humanitarian.

What is your role at Porta?

I work as a Rust Developer theorising new technologies and implementing them through the creation of custom pallets and smart contracts using Parity’s Substrate framework and Ink libraries.

Why Porta?

The Substrate framework Porta uses is a powerful technology that gives us the freedom to customise our ecosystem when we need to and the freedom to focus on developing business logic when we want to. The framework allows us to imagine products and bring them to market very quickly.

The staff at Porta are all kind, hard-working, smart people who are energetic and passionate about their own development, the development of the company and the development of the crypto industry as a whole.

Porta gives its staff the freedom to invent and build the future.

We believe in what crypto can offer to the masses and we intend to make that transition as easy, appealing and feature-rich as possible.

What’s next?

I am passionate to further my knowledge of Rust, the Substrate framework and the Crypto industry. While helping users enter the crypto world, I would also like to help onboard developers into the substrate ecosystem.

At some point, I would be interested to bridge my understanding of psychology with technology to create a powerful Artificial Intelligence.

As a company, we will continue to develop quality products and grow partnerships with innovative companies and individuals to create a better world for us all to live in.
