I started professional writing in December 2014, after I had to drop out of law school at the age of 19. My first job was to write a tour guide for a Temple for $10 in exchange of 2500 words— I have since then written over 500 articles in a wide variety of genres.
I got interested in Bitcoin in late 2015 and started following the cryptocurrency world, learning about Blockchain and other Cryptocurrencies, apart from Bitcoin.
In January 2016, I started writing for CoinTelegraph—one of the most reputed Journals in the cryptocurrency-sphere, and have since then been vigorously involved in the crypto community. I currently also head Communications and Outreach for Velix.ID, a blockchain startup working in the ID-verification sphere.
I care about social causes and unconditional equality for all human beings. I mainly dedicate my time and resources towards advocating for increased education & healthcare for children from underprivileged backgrounds; although I care equally about the rights of women, gender and sexual minorities, Dalits, racial minorities, and people with disabilities. When I am not writing, I enjoy reading, learning languages, cooking, baking, playing chess, meditating, traveling and volunteering.

My Professional Strengths
I am dedicated to my work. At the risk of sounding cliché, I believe this is what matters the most. I put my maximum effort in each word I pen down.
I am punctual, i.e., I stick up to the deadlines that I have committed; no excuses.
I proofread all my work—to the best of my abilities — before I send it across; no silly grammatical errors in texts.
I don’t plagiarize. No spinning of articles, no copying of other people’s work. I pass all my work through Copyscape premium before I submit it to a client. I give due credit to anyone I quote from.
I research before I write, and fact-check my work before I push it for publication.
- I am experienced; I have been writing on Cryptocurrencies since early 2016, and I am always updated on the recent events and news.
- Grammar & Readability93%
- Research and Fact Checking100%
I have bilingual fluency in English and Hindi. My primary language is English; the language I have been educated in. I am fluent in spoken Hindi and Urdu (specialized vocabulary) as well. I can read Latin script (English & German), Devanagari script (Sanskrit & Hindi), and Perso-Arabic script (Urdu). I have completed Goethe Institut’s Deutsch (German) A1 (100/100) and A2 (88/100) courses, and plan to take more courses in the future.
I am currently learning Spanish and improving my German. My planned language goal is to have near-native fluency in German, Spanish, and Mandarin, in addition to English and Hindi in the next 5 years!
