About Pavel

My strong side is in software technologies, but I am also very curious in financial aspects. I guess having ideas, technological and financial knowledge constantly drive me to try run own business, but my execution is okeish at best. Having hacker's mindset, I tend to look at things at different angle and I try to exploit any technological advantage I can possibly get. In 2004 in my small hometown I was first who offered ordering OEM automotive parts leveraging access to OEM catalogs and emerging online marketplaces. In 2009 I launched first ever bitcoin poker room. In the past I created software to catch arbitrage situations in sport betting, and I was doing honda car engines customization by installing turbochargers and programming ECU... So my experience is very different but common thing is passion for technology, understanding finances, willingness to learn and ability to act in uncertain situations.
