During his time at school, he actively participated in software development competitions and even created firewall software, gaining recognition within the academic community. After graduation, he continued his pursuit of various projects, including ventures into virtual currency trading.
During his student years, David was also an avid gamer, finding immense joy and fulfillment in gaming. He regarded gaming as an integral part of his life, igniting people's imaginations and providing entertainment.
