The clean-cut Indian teenager in front of me is talking eloquently about how to write and deploy ERC20 smart contracts on Matic Network / Polygon Network.
Deploying a smart contract on ETH costs $200 in Gas fees, while deploying a smart contract on Matic costs only $0.01 in Gas fees. The teenager seriously shared with the world in front of the camera. If he didn’t say his age, no one would know that he is a mere 13-year-old Indian junior high school student.
Compared to the Indian government’s strict regulation of crypto assets, India’s tenacious crypto dynamism is breathtaking, with the market cap of India’s star expansion Polygon exceeding $10 billion on the surface, but what is even more remarkable under the surface is India’s crypto talent.
Gajesh Naik: India’s Genius Programming Teenager
Since ancient times, heroes come out of teenagers, and like Wei Shen of North University, Gajesh Naik’s life is also open all the way. According to Gajesh Naik’s own account on Twitter
April 2016: Attended a 2-week programming boot camp to learn the Scratch, Drag and Drop programming languages.
May 2017 – August 2017: Learned Scratch in depth
August 2017 – January 2018: learned C and C++
January 2020 – March 28, 2021: started learning Python and Data Science
Since developing a keen interest in programming at the age of 7, he has now mastered the development of over 10 programming languages. He has now developed a commercial chatbot program and has launched his own Youtube channel to share the 13-year-old’s insights with the world.
The Counterintuitive DeFi Building Journey
Time has changed and a new generation of young people are learning at a rocketing pace to achieve a bend in the road.
Turn back the clock to September 2020, when Uniswap launched its governance token UNI and the DeFI wave quickly swept the world. That’s when Gajesh Naik first purchased $5 worth of Bitcoin, and a new world slowly opened up.
Gajesh Naik said that he only started learning about blockchain and cryptocurrencies systematically on October 3, 2020, and unlike most of the people involved in the DeFi liquidity mining for gold at that time, the 13-year-old programming teenager started his journey of building DeFi against all odds under the strong trend of interest.
October 29, 2020: Started learning sodility
February 27, 2021: starts doing free exploration
April 25, 2021: Stops free exploration and starts building @PolyGaj protocol
April 28, 2021: Release @PolyGaj protocol
In the past few months, Gajesh has been at home with his parents and little brother as India’s epidemic has seen a deadly second wave of outbreaks and a near collapse of the healthcare system. His father, Siddhivinayak, has a degree in computer science, and thanks to his father’s encouragement, Gajesh is devoting more time to PolyGaj.
PolyGaj is a DeFi protocol built on the Polygon chain. Initially a fork of Goose Finance on the BSC chain, PolyGaj has been running for 79 days with a total liquidity of $5 million as it continues to be optimized.
As a decentralized collaboration platform built by the Ethernet network. Gitcoin has been described as the “arsenal” of ethereum, and as head of commerce for the arsenal, Connor deals with talented developers from around the world on a daily basis, and Connor has nothing but praise for the 13-year-old: “When I was dealing with one of the founders of DeFi, I thought I was being scammed in this email.
“In dealing with one of the DeFi founders, I thought I was being lied to in this email until I double-checked and confirmed it and realized I was talking to a prodigy.” (The 13-year-old could not sign the confirmation because he was underage)
As the founder of polygaj, 13-year-old Gajesh has already become the indispensable backbone of the Indian crypto ecology. While talking with Indian crypto ecologists in the Clubhouse about the future of Indian crypto, he keeps exploring the boundaries of Polygon’s ecology.
As balajis, crypto investment gurus of Indian origin, say, crypto eco-innovation is driving global competition. In this competition, people who are constantly learning and evolving are the greatest treasures, and old money is always bowled over by young talent.
