I’m Jamie Harber and I’m proud to present 8bitSumo – a blog devoted to tips and trick for better online privacy and security. In my articles, I cover everything from security tips to product reviews and cryptocurrency news.
But you’re probably wondering how everything started, aren’t you?
Well, I never could picture myself sitting behind a desk or doing menial labor from 9 am to 5 pm. I always dreamed about working on my own terms without anyone looking over my shoulder.
After I finished my bachelor’s degree in Cyber Security Engineer, I was confident that nothing would suit a nerd like me better than online blogging. I had tons of experience and tips that I was dying to share with the rest of the world.
But being an online blogger was a harder job than I imagined.
Do you know what’s like to live in a country with strict censorship? Well, I live in Vietnam, a country with close connections to China and similar regime.
It’s challenging to write freely and express honest opinions in a country, which strives to control its population.
That’s why I dedicated my time to researching how to stay anonymous online. Then I created 8bitSumo to help people keep their data and identity safe while browsing the Web.
Due to Vietnam’s censorship, I didn’t know much about cryptocurrencies until I discovered the world of Bitcoin in August 2017. Since then cryptocurrencies have turned into a favorite topic of mine, and I’m keeping my readers up with the latest trends.
