We are pleased to add Vasil Dimov to the list of OpenSats LTS grantees. Vasil is receiving long-term support for his ongoing contributions to Bitcoin Core.
Vasil started contributing full-time to Bitcoin Core in 2020. Since then, he has worked on various improvements, focusing mostly on the networking layer of the software. In the last couple of years, he has worked on adding Tor v3 support, as well as adding support for I2P and CJDNS. His review and PRs are a testament to his determination to improve P2P networking and privacy all around.
As a seasoned and prolific developer, his contributions go beyond Bitcoin Core. His past work includes contributions to c-lightning, as well as multiple bug fixes to various high-class projects such as git, OpenSSL, Xorg, wget, and others. You can find a full list of his contributions on his website.
In addition to the various "mini projects" he is working on inside Core, he will continue to review pull requests. "I think it is equally important or even more important to do review rather than coding," he mentioned to us. "Every PR needs multiple ACKs to get merged, so it means that I have to review multiple PRs for each PR I have opened myself."
Long-term support for Bitcoin Core developers and similar load-bearing internet people is made possible by generous donors like you. If you want to make a contribution, please donate to the general fund.
