Rest in peace @adept

4년 전

It is with heavy hearts that we inform the community that we have lost one of our own: @adept.

An unceasing entrepreneur, @adept first came to the attention of Steemit when he began selling apparel through Amazon. @craig-grant told @ned; @ned contacted @adept; and the rest is history.

And that’s how thesteemitshop.com was born. Just recently he became a full-time employee and the people he worked with were excited about their future together.

@adept was always cheerful and a pleasure to work or chat with. He was open-minded and eager to be of service to the blockchain world, to which he devoted himself very early on, having discovered Bitcoin in 2011. He followed all of the projects in the space, and is even credited with having created the Litecoin “Ł,” but was most generous with his support of Steem. One need only read his post My List of Steem Related Domains and Project Ideas to get an idea of his passion.

In the following YouTube video, he talks about his various passions in classic @adept-style:

He was a critical thinker who formed his own beliefs and lived life his way. We all loved working with him and are missing him dearly. We include two more videos of his below, if you would like to get a better sense of the person he was.

They say, “Just start creating content and that’s all you have to do”:

Have you ever traveled through time like this?

@adept you will be missed.

I will love you forever@adept. You are the most beautiful cosmic being I have ever met in my entire life. I hold for you an eternal gratitude for all you have taught me. You are a blessing to my existence. My soul.

·

So sorry for your loss..

·

I am so sorry for your loss. I can not imagine. May you have peace.

Luke, my dear friend. It has been an honour having experienced friendship and memorable times with you. You have impacted my life more than once, and gave new perspective. It sure has been a blessing to know you. I got to watch you become a Legend. Your words of wisdom and intellect, your ego-less personality, and your dance moves at the raves.
Love you brother. Never forgotten, Always missedPhoto_on_2-1-18_at_3.23_PM.jpg
He took this picture soon before his passing on. He was on a rooftop in the Bronx in NYC.


This is a memory of a good time with him and his Love, @Seer. Myself in the middle. He could definitely dance. He would always be up at the front of the stage, and just flow with the beat. He was an inspiring friend.

·

I was slightly surprised to know that i'd missed an open mic he did because i was outside smoking and didn't expect that to happen. I shouldn't have been. He was so many different things. Miss him. Miss you too.

·

Surprised to know that our great hero is no more.
Though you're gone, your legacies live on@adapt.
Wishing your loved ones and indeed the steemit community "solace and fortitude"

·

From my observations, steemitblog tends to voluntarily decline payment for his posts.
Rare gem. Kudos@steemitblog

Luke made the Joe Rogan podcast!

Should get at least 500k views.

Holy shit this is really getting out there!!

It's always sad news to hear of someone passing, but this was one guy that seemed to want to do more for Steemit than he wanted to get out.

My thoughts are with his friends and family at this sad time.

·

Absolutely. No question about that.

·
·

Is anything needed for his family? Is there anything we, the Steemit community can do to help his wife and family?

We gonna miss you so much @adept !!!! Great friend father husband and entrepreneur!!!!! I'm glad I got to meet you in real life. You will always be remembered big homie!!!!!

·

I want to use up all my voting power here, but luke would say that was funny but stupid, so i won't. I miss "adept" probably as much as you do, maybe not as deeply as some people who've known him for life or many years, but a LOT. I bothered him SO MUCH. But i still managed to get a laugh from him like half the time i said something ridiculous. He's the reason i'm here and him and i would have been friends anyways. I do wish we'd have had the time necessary to actually develop some top level ventures, but life and death happen, and i'm glad as fuck to have known him for even only as long as i did. We never finished one thing "together" on any level, but we discussed some great shit. He'll always be here, in our lives and in association with the steem blockchain and it's community too, more than they know. Unless we tell them now, during, and afterwards. We come to y'all with the force of luke included. Absolutely. Love you too man. Glad as hell to know you and the crew.

It feels like it was just yesterday when I spoke to him in your youtube live chat ... This is horrible news. I hope his fam is ok ... damn ...

·
·

Yeah it was I remember the day you were all in my livestream....he always popped in my streams....good dude man.... even better man in person.

·
·

The last thing i wrote to him was "alrighty then", not too profound at all, maybe the least profound thing i've ever said, but before that, wonderful stuff, and a friend who was both funny and constantly learning.

·
·
·

I only met him for the first time in person just a couple of weeks ago. We wound up walking around my neighborhood and just chatting about this and that (blockchain obviously). My girlfriend was waiting for me at home for dinner, so I had to cut the conversation short. On the one hand I'm grateful I got to spend those couple of hours with him. On other hand, I can't help wishing I'd just stayed out a bit longer.

·
·
·
·

His wake was today. We stayed a long time after with his girlfriend. Luke's energy, and i'm not an "energy" guy, was tremendous. Sometimes you have to force nice words a bit, but everyone just showered his father with nice shit to say, then everyone went over to his girlfriends house and hung out for many hours. There's still a lot of pain especially for those who were closest, but it was also one of the funniest gatherings i've been at in a LONG time. In some other comment i mentioned wanting to talk with you myself. Whenever that's possible. It could be 10 minutes and i can guarantee you that you'll be pretty sure whether you want to continue the conversation moving forward. By the time my work is DONE, steem will almost certainly either be on the way to popular adoption, or bent considerably backwards in what i call "survival of the BITtest". I'd like to work for/with you all for NOTHING [maybe a deal like tesla has, where only extreme performance is rewarded], instead of being distracted by the dopamine of votes streaming my own work, and getting paid by rich delegations. Money that makes no difference at all. When this COULD BE a platform where i'd "drop" everything first. You can't ask luke because he's gone on that level, but you could ask his girlfriend what he used to do when he watched my real videos. Pull out his hair wondering how i exist. I have my own shit to do, but it's honestly my opinion that you all have a HUGE task in front of you, and could literally use every single visionary individual you can get on the team. I said 5 or 10 minutes. And you'd be pretty damned sure. Luke wrote some code and i don't, but at the same time, i don't think steem is going to win or lose based on the exact specifics or eloquence of the new code, rather by the decisions made at the top in terms of what is encouraged the most. What X prizes for GREAT ideas [probably largely for communities and smts] ACHIEVE.

Put up the "Right" contest, and it's my claim, that you can pull the geniuses out of the woodwork here. Not coders, though there are plenty. Writers. Story Tellers. Inventors. Visionaries.

I'd say that steem is awesome, but that it will sink and swim as much because of it's community as anything.

Neither @adept or @birdinc every actually let me talk directly to you all, claiming you're THAT busy, like always crazy busy, but if you ever chat with David @birdinc, perhaps you could ask him, in whatever words you choose, what he thinks is my "high end" potential.

I kinda see steem as almost like a trireme.

We need every available talented hand ON DECK. Rowing HARD.

The VICE and BOBS post, made it seem to me, that there is a serious need of creating A deep and ingenious SMT/SMT's.

We need to FIND, and KEEP our talent.

If our best and brightest jump ship,
first mover advantages can vanish.

99.999% of us here are NEVER writing a best seller, certainly not alone.

But what if some of us were going to anyways,
and just thought:

"What if steem/steemit/zappl/dlive/dtube, got the delegation/curation game JUST RIGHT, and the community actually managed to sacrifice some individual posting and rewards chasing, in the name of co operated great creations?"

Sorry to babble. Long great day and it's hard to sleep.

10 minutes if you have it would be awesome. Truly.

I don't have luke to bother anymore,
so i have to go closer to the source.

Or try.

Thanks, Alx

I'm sure they appreciate all of the condolences here.

·

I became very sad after watching this news of losing @adept.There are many things which should be learnt from him.He was very hard working and good thinkable person.

·

will be ok

·

Oh, how 😔 sad, I have only started following his blog recently, such a cool and nice guy, so sorry to hear this now, you will be greatly missed @adept 😢 😢

Luke, you were one of the nicest and most open minded people i've known, not just to ideas but to all different types of people. But you still owe me that one 100% vote for that time i drove your ass in the freezing and blowing snow, to the middle of freakin' nowhere. It was so late and as we drove, between asking you strange questions, i was calculating the price of SBD's, and how much i was making as your frienduber. [i can get cranky and selfish at 5 in the morning] :) I did want a fat vote for that, but in reality, your friendship was worth an unlimited number of votes, and no individual gave me more support on steemit itself, than you bro. Without you, i wouldn't be here. I wouldn't know these people. And for all the things that i'd STILL be complaining to you about most every day, i like them, and have made some new very good friends because of you. To me "Adept Token" is what i think of when i imagine you smoking a little bit of weed after blockchain meetups, and engaging in great creative conversations. I'm sorry for the times when i was actually annoying, which were pretty far and few between for a being like you. I'm happy we knew one another. Two weeks later and finally i let it hit me and got to cry. I expected to know you forever. I mean, i do, but man, i'm one of those who really wishes the universe would have given us more time, to spend down to earth with you. We were "supposed to" grow old, helping each other out with ever more impossible projects, and smoking gods own pot, on the so called "fee yacht". Love you man.

·

Sorry for the loss, i wish i had the chance to meet him. I also am in buffalo area, and would like to know more about meetups.

·
·
  ·  4년 전

Absolutely. Usually Thursdays at Ashkers on elmowood, 6:00pm. Look up buffalo blockchain meetup.

·
  ·  4년 전

Awesome @alxgraham. Got me crying again lol. Man our boy @Adept is really gone bro... I miss him so much! There was so much to learn from him yet. I alway's looked up to him.

He would have been happy to know his picture made it on the Joe Rogan experience today because he was trending.

·
  ·  4년 전

Really!? Wow I alway's listen to JRE. I gotta look this up now. @adept was a close friend of mine. He introduced me to everything crypto last year. He even introduced me to Discord. He gave me one of his laptops as well. I have something of his that will always remind me of the blessing he is in my life.

·
·

They talked about Steemit and showed the front page on the video feed for his latest show with Tony Henchcliff

·
·
·
  ·  4년 전

That is unique. Either some good timing or @Adept pulling strings in the Aether lol

Rest in peace.

I had mention we could still go forward with a SMT dedicated to Adept ( aptly named Adept). Just something to think about as this news really came out of nowhere.

·
·
·

Wow! I think I heard him mention it before I just didn't know how far he went with it. I think we should carry on with his vision there in his post. Very interesting find. Thanks for sharing it.

·
·
·

That's true. He may no longer be here but we will keep his vision alive, on steemit and on earth.

·
·
·

This is truly a legacy we could live on for him @adept... Steemit is proud of you

·
·
·

That would be amazing

·
·
·
·

Adept was a friend of mine, a guy i loved right away, someone who got me onto steem, someone who contributed to "my ideas", and someone who i really hoped would ensure i got to speak with some of the characters heading up parts of the venture, such as yourself. I didn't even realize until i met luke and a few of the steemians from buffalo, that i'd literally been working alone for way too long and actually hadn't maintained enough good friendships. Luke's loss just makes me want to make more friends, especially bright and ambitious individuals. If all the steem blockchain ever did was result in me meeting "adept", then that would have been a great achievement by it in my eyes. In reality, he helped increase the size and ideas of the community, in a way that absolutely will live on, and i'd like to see this community eventually go critical. Like a critical mass nuclear reaction. Like people particles bouncing against one another together here, akin to the way people started getting a lot smarter when they began to live in cities, and to constantly encountering different ideas and perspectives than their own. The "right" [sufficiently effective] steps of/for/by the community, and i can see that actually happening. I would love to help on the community side. At least to engage in a conversation about adept, steem, the community, the present, the future, and some of the ideas that y'all have obviously seen, and some others that perhaps you've been too busy working to notice. I think luke would definitely be amused if and when we have an open form conversation. Good man. He wanted me to publish here. At times i've thought of leaving. Now i'd like to see this thing my friend got me to become part of, to eventually get way past the moon. Because of the community. People like him. Like us. Alx

·

This might seem crazy, but i suggest a steemit page opened for people like him, to promote his legacy and that of others like him, in a way to immortalize him and others like him

·
·

great idea

@seer My Condolences to You....Those we Love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday..unseen, unheard, but always near, stilled loved, stilled missed and very Dear. I Pray that God holds you near during this difficult time. May he bless you with Love, Reassurance, Peace and Comfort. I had the pleasure of being blessed with your Presence meeting and welcoming this Awesome Soul @adept into our home where he greeted my son and daughter with love. Luke know that your loved and always be missed May You Rest Peacefully.

Miss you, @adept. Our time together since meeting last year at Token Summit in May was an absolute blast for me. We pretty much talked about Steem and Steemit non-stop. So many crazy ideas and plans for future SMT projects. It's been an honor being your friend and business partner with The Steemit Shop. You will surely be missed but never forgotten. I'd say rest in peace bud, but I know you're busy dreaming up some intergalactic zkSNARKs blockchain project right now. Your brilliance was on a whole other level.

·
  ·  4년 전

He was very wise. Intellect off the charts.

·
·

Love and miss you. The thing i liked most was how he would literally sit or stand there, and listen to the craziest stuff. And then have something to say about it. I don't know too many people who can pull that off like he could.

·
·
·
  ·  4년 전

He was literally A MAN OF NO EGO.

·

Love you bro. You know i do. Maybe luke a little more, but still. :)

·

Such a gem, you must have gotten alot of knowledge from him, these are tressured memories. Such a loss is huge, may you be comforted my brother. Thanks for sharing this!

·

Oh. I understand how you feel man. My heartfelt condolences to you.

·

He seemed like such a great man @adept, he would definitely be missed by the steemit family and community... He might not be here now but his good works are forever carved in the sands of the blockchain. We will definitely miss you and pray that God guide your soul to rest.

·

So sorry this would be a deep wound I hope you get comforted

·

What a loss
I believe he meant well and laid set goals for the actualization of SMT project
Sad to hear of his demise
Rest on @adept

·

My condolences to you. The good thing about this is we know of his dreams. It will be upon us to make them come true soon enough. May his visions come true.

·
·

Rest in perfect peace man @adept it is so painful we lost someone from the community @birdinc @steemitblog the community mourns for such a great loss.
We shall meet to part no more, he impacted greatly on the community and would always be remembered now and always😭💔😭

·

Wow, this sort of news always hit me hard. So sad. My condolences to everyone that knew him.

·
·
·

@exyle so hard, i feel so so bad, like i knew him. Death makes us very weak and give us reasons for reflection. @andrarchy may you find strenth in your weakest moments if he is your friend. Treasure of memiors you had together.

·

Not good a news to hear. A big loss. may his soul rest in peace.

·

I'm sorry for your loss. Indeed, he'll be missed so much by the community.

I did not know this man and have not noticed his profile... do you mind me asking what have happened? I condole the loss of your friend.. the reason I ask is, that this is the second Steemian that are dead in 1,7 years.. and I am curious to know the reason, because I care about this community and humanity in general.

@adept str4wm4n Luke

luke.jpg

The services for Luke were held this morning. There were stories shared by friends and family alike. It was clear that the common theme was the innate nature by which Luke shared his infectious smile and happiness with those around him. There was a lot of love in that room today.

I'll miss exploring and building zany ideas with @adept. Steem was his latest focus and I'm sad we hadn't spent more time collaborating on it. We had lots of fun with Byteball, building bots together. We played with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Lisk, lots of Ethereum tokens, XtraBytes, and tons of shitcoins. Luke was the designer of the logo for FuckToken and was always looking to contribute to new projects. He read whitepapers voraciously, sought out airdrops and scraped the Announcements forum on https://bitcointalk.org/ for new exiting projects. He spent time connecting people to each other. He spent time adding value to projects and spreading excitement about the future. Luke was always early. Perhaps a little too early, because he always moved on too early as well. He could have earned a 100x return many times over. I don't think that was his primary motivation though. It was more about being a part of something bigger. His efforts, contributions and their usefulness seemed to be more important to him than any return.

For those that don't know, Luke also suggested the Litecoin slash-through-the-L logo way back in 2012 ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=79849.0 ). Many coins and tokens passed through his hands (including physical bitcoin "Casascius Coins"). But he never held enough at one time to make any life-changing financial impact. I think he was just always more excited about new projects rather than to be a HODLer. That would have been too boring for him. But Steem was all set to be his first real HODL and it was just starting to show signs of being a different outcome for him. Luke was ready to focus on a single crypto project, and he was extremely excited to be joining the team behind SteemIt.

He will be sorely missed by all of us at the Buffalo Blockchain group & Tuesday meetings, the Meetup group Thursday meetings, and the private traders/research group where he was a valued and critical partner. He made an impact with all of us. There are plans being made for a remembrance/party in his honor.

Please share your thoughts and support with his family @seer

·

I was just about to express my disapproval at the lack of any comments of sufficient length and depth, for such a person. Luke was one of my newest, but most regarded friends. I wish you woulda been around longer today for the get together after the wake. It was a bit sad, but honestly, with his energy there, it was a lot of fun at the same time. One of the funniest nights in awhile. And of course, despite it being a cliche, what on earth else would luke have wanted? Thanks for the help you've provided the family. It has been greatly appreciated. I miss him a lot, but as long as i can literally feel the force of luke, i'm dealing with it. If the only thing steem ever did was to facilitate the relationships between the people luke is responsible for knowing one another, that's worth literally its entire market cap. You know me man, lol. I think BIG AF. Luke was one of few who could come close to processing my shit fast enough to prevent RAM overload and shutdown. And even when he did get overloaded, it was funny, because he knew how to deal. Hope there's a great party/remembrance in the future. I will try not to talk so much. I will fail. But i love the man so i'll force a few less words to fly out of my word hole. Glad you guys got to know each other, and that you've been there to help out! Alx

RIP, he will be missed 😢

·

Did you know him? He will really be missed, so sad.

That is a bummer. RIP and best wishes to everyone who knew him.

·

noo!!!! Are you serious!! We were just talking on steemspeak!!!! I am seriously bummed out right now.

·
·

Yes, I was in the same boat hearing his voice not that long ago!

·
·
·

That must really be traumatic for you,, sorry

·
·
  ·  4년 전

So unfortunate I know.

·
·

May he rest in peace. I suggest a legacy be laid to make him live on, on steem it.

·
·

How surprising it always seems. I was talking to my elder brother last year inviting to a business venture of mine and unfortunately, the next day, he didn't wake up from his sleep.
Death is truly painful.

·
·

So sorry about the loss. Take heart @captainobviou3

·

@donkeypong, Boss its a sad news

I just created a Steemit account to post here in remembrance of Luke.

Luke was an integral part of the Fuck Token community. He designed our logos and set up our first website. He was there from day 1 and continued to help out whenever he could. It was heartbreaking to hear we had lost a good friend. He will be sorely missed by everyone.

Here is some of the logo work Luke did for us. All out of his desire to work on crypto projects. We had a blast joking around, he was a special guy.

This is the logo he created for us:

This was the last message he left on our Slack, classic: Image uploaded from iOS.jpg

Here is the original website he made for us, full of memes:

Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 9.12.06 PM.png

Rest in peace Luke. Thank you for being the awesome human being that you are. I wish we had the chance to meet in person.

@seer we are creating silver coins with Luke's logo on them. When they're finished, I'd like to send you some as a physical reminder of Luke's passion to help our project. My condolences, I can't imagine what you're going through right now.

Sorry for loss. Always a reminder to live life to fullest.

Rest in peace @adept

@adept encouraged me at times when I was wondering if this steemit thing would really work, and how could it possibly take on so much at once..
he really helped me to believe in our community here.

Rest in peace @adept! :(
We didn't chat much but you seemed like a really cool guy. Thanks for everything you've done for the crypto communities, your Litecoin design will forever be remembered by everyone!

So so sad...I pray for strength for everyone directly connected to him.

Rest in peace ! He will be remembered for his contributionin steemit. 😢

He looks so young, for shame. Rest in Power.

Luke was a dear friend of the Minerva team. A lot of us here at Minerva knew him before blockchain was even a thing. He was an inspiration to all of us and a great person. He will be sorely missed in the community. RIP.

My condolences go to everyone who knew him, i hug you :(

Life is a journey and we transit from earthly to spiritual world during death. Wish him light as he continues his journey.

RIP @adept you will be missed :(

Rip to the great @adept condolence to the steemit family and those who knew him personally too..

Sad to hear that one of the most interesting personalities here in Steemit had gone. We'll surely miss him...

Sad to hear this. May he RIP and his great legacy is embedded in the blockchain.

:(

Thank you for this tribute post, @steemitblog. In many ways, we're a virtual family... so these types of farewell messages mean a lot.

My thoughts are with everyone who was close to @adept

Yes this post means a lot to his friends and family. Agreed, Thank you @ned and @steemitblog for this! @adept is strongly missed. This post really got the message out there! @Seer ( @Adept's love) is very thankful for this! As well as myself and his closest friend's and family! Thank you Thank you Thank you!

Our condolences to those who knew him. @steemitblog thank you for informing us as we wouldn't have known of his contribution and dedication to Steemit and Litecoin. We're relatively new here.
He's on his way to the moon, we'll meet him there one day. May @adept Rest in Peace!

I'm proud of you.
may you calm down there.
we will all always remember you.
the person who inspired through his writing ..
good bless you.
RIP @adept

It's really sad to know that intelligent, attractive, hardware worker, cheerful. Critical thinker. @adept sir was really good. Massive respect for him..

This is really sad to know about @adept may he rest in peace....he was really a great gentleman.

Rest in Peace. Such a tragedy.

A critical thinking philosopher has been lost here. Feeling the loss of @adept - Rest in peace.

true. creative man, and truly one of the "critical mass" necessary.

Rip my brother, you will be sadly miss by all of us, but your great works will live on

Sorry for the loss but the joy he gave to those that knew him means he is never really gone.

Wow, didn't realize he designed the Litecoin logo! Every time I open my wallet he'll be in my thoughts!

Really sad to hear about Luke! Therefor I want to send my deepest condoleanses to all of you who was hi´s friends and family!

Rest in Piece @adept. It was very heartbreaking to hear this news, you will always be remembered Luke.

I will love you forever@adept. You are the most beautiful cosmic being I have ever met in my entire life. I hold for you an eternal gratitude for all you have inspired me. You are a blessing to my existence. My soul.

I don't have any exchanges with him unfortunately but from what was written about him above, he will be greatly missed. A great gem will be missed. @adept you will be missed.

Rip @adept, i went through his blog now and it's so painful steemit lost such an asset

damn thats...... FAREWELL

Great loss for all of us
REST IN PEACE

The memories of friendship are very beautiful. We will remember it always, and sometimes we can not expect a meeting. Then we live together, so finally separated. But friendship never erodes time, though we are far apart. Greetings of friendship.

Very sad to read such news!!!

·

So sadening, i pray we should never get such news any more in this community. Amen!!!

Very sad ..... may his soul rest in peace

ooh no, so sad. RIP @Adept, may his soul rest in the bossom of the Lord. Your dreams on steemit will live on. Adieu

It really breaks my heart to knw that a fellow Steemian, who has hustled to reach where he is, just died.. It pains me, if only I had the power to bring back the dead.. RIP @adept, may God guide him

So sorry. Blessings.

RIP @adept the blockchain will keep your thoughts alive. !

It is really sad that we loose such a good steemitian who had given so much to the community, but he will always be remembered in our hearts, we hope where ever he is, he is happy and we will always miss him.

So sorry. Rest in peace sir.

I didn't really know him personally but from what I have learned so far, he was a passionate and devoted member of the community who have contributed a lot to this platform. May his soul rest in peace. Asiere ufan @adept.

  ·  4년 전

Man...

Dang.. Rest in peace man.

Rest in peace @adept you will always be missed..

It's so disheartening to hear of a talented gem being lost. May He rest in peace. He was one of the few people I noticed showing love to newbies when I first signed up and even though I did not know him, I felt his warmth true upvotes. My heart is really sad. I hope we carry on with his visions

Never interacted with him but seems like he was a decent guy who engaged all sorts of users on the platform. Going through his comments, he appears to have been open to numerous conversational topics and he freely interacted with others. Sorry for the loss of everyone that knew him.

Fucking heartbreaking :'( Such a beautiful soul!

I regret his loss as part of the community. I will follow his advice to keep me doing content.

RIP @adept. Sincere condolences to his family.

Rest in peace.

PS God takes as the perfect moment. We just don't have all the informations to agree and accept it.

·

unfortunally God does not take anyone. This is cause by unfortunate event in life. We all subject to die one day.
God wants us to live and enjoy life.

·
·

Thanks for the enlightenment, I wonder why people could accuse God of taking the same people he created with love and grace. It is very common today that when anyone dies people proclaim he or she is being taken away by God regardless of the kind of incident that led to their deaths. Most of them have forgotten how bad the world is today, take a look at the Florida High School shooting which occurred 2 days ago, some students and teachers died as a result of that incident, would it be sane to claim God also took the unlucky victims? Was it God who told Nikolas Cruz to carryout such dastardly act? People can be funny sometimes, I never really came in contact with @adept since being in the community but I read much about him, he was such a genus...RIP @adept we all love you.

That his legacy in this tank contributes to the new steemianos to grow and give quality content for the benefit of all who conform, flies high @adept.

that's sad news. rest in peace @adept

Rest in peace and good nite @adept until we meet to part no more....!!!

I´m so sorry the lost. RIP

rest in the lord @adept you did great to this community, your legacies will live on. Bless your soul.

@steemitblog Sad news. Wishing the best do his family and friends.

May God give us the fortitude to bear this ooo... He will be so missed in the Steemit blockchain.. Rest on brother

Let the spirit of the departed be blessed and let those he left behind stay strong

RIPP man @adept. You have made your mark in the word of crypto and steem. Those works lives on!!!

I am new to Steemit , but this wonderful being, added such value to this platform, I just have to say that minds such as @adept fill me with wonder and joy.

RIP. A sad day indeed...

but his legacy well lasts forever :(

So sad :(
Didn't know him much, but he seemed like a cool person, the way he chatted and commented.

Reading this about him I with I got the chance to Know him. This is a great loss and yes he will be surely missed by those who know him and those of us who are just knowing him.

I didn't meet this guy, however I join to the feels of this lost. Rest in peace.

I didn't know him, but after watching the videos, I wish I did, seemed like a really cool guy. The video with him spinning around is so funny, he reminds me of David Grohl, one of my heros.. RIP @adept

Of what disease he died?

May your soul rest in perfect peace @adept and my you find favour in the presence of the lord. May @ned find the heart to be consoled and accept the fact that you are gone till you guys meet again.

he taught me alot about steemit. he gave me my first upvotes here on the platform. he will be missed. he inspired me to want to become a developer. ive been working on a project and was hoping to show him what i've built when i was finished. rest in peace my friend. you were too young to leave us.

As Steemians- we will miss him. RIP

Our this attitude to be - one for all and all for one will keep us a joint big family together in good time as well as occasional bad times.

This is really bad news. The death of @lauralemons was last year and now @adept early this year. I didn't get to meet him, but have seen the value he added to the steemit community. What would we like to be remembered for when we are no more? May his soul rest in peace. Amen.

@maryfavour, founder & coordinator of @redfishpillar project.

Farewell for a brother yet gone too soon,
I might not have known @adept but from this videos one could tell he was a really passionate and a very kind and hardworking guy. The world will miss you and the steemit community will miss you more. Pray that your soul finds eternal rest and peace in the bossom of God.

RIP! Thank you for all the good work you've done, and for being such a positive role model for many of us

I am at a loss of words. Unreal.

Fare well, till we meet again

I also miss the talks with @adept, is an amazing person! Sympathetic and more. I guess now is much busier with his new job... Greetings!

I might not know him personally as i am new in this platform, but losing someone like him is saddened. I can relate to that because i just lost my father a month ago. May your soul rest in peace sir @adept. Thank you for what you have done in this community. You have touched many lives. I am sure you are now walking with God in heaven. If you see my dad, please tell him i love him so much and i missed him. Till next time sir @adept. Rest in peace.

WOW! This is most unfortunate. Such a shame the world lost such an amazing person. :(

O fuck, how did that happen? :(

His legacy now lives forever on the Steem Blockchain. R.I.P.

Oh he is still with us no matter what! We are sure going to miss him but His doyl is resting in its perfect place. Rest in peace @adept.

Ouch, such a great person from the Blockchain world. :( Even I know who he is, he helped me personally with a coding project of mine within the Freenet Project years ago. It's alien to know he's been lost to us. He was a very bright mind and he shall surely be missed.

It's a sad day in the steemit community, may he find rest in the world beyond.

this is so sad
tears blow out of my eyes reading and watching this @steemitblog

Vay canına

My condolances, this is very sad. Even more knowing we lost someone who contributed as much as @adept did to community.

My heart is with you.

Kind regards,
Anna, @arhitekt

I am so new to Steemit just a few days, but reading this I do understand that we have lost someone wonderful. You have my deepest sympathy

Strange, I was just talking to him what seem like a few days before this on steemspeak and when I found out about this I was really surprised as I think everyone else was, he was young and very smart had so much to offer while he did so much and touched everyone's lives that knew him.

My condolences @adept may your soul rest in peace

That's a shame.

My thoughts go to his friends and family.

Rest in peace. Godspeed

May his soul rest in peace. Definitely, going by his contributions to blockchain technology, he would be miss beyond steemit. Rest on geek.

Wh is it that this post was payout declined?

Are you saying you would like to profit on another user's death?

I am so sorry for your loss. I did not have the opportunity to know him and it sounds like I really missed out. Many blessings and much peace to those who did.

We should help me out.......

Oh so sad! May his soul rest in perfect peace. His legacy lives on in his creations though.

So very sorry for your loss.

Sad and painful. Rest in peace @adept

RIP,
Hopefully, given fortitude for his family

Ohh its a pity. May he rest in peace!

This is sad... May his soul rest in the bosom of unending peace. sleep well

A minute silence for our brother @adept. We really have lost a gem on our community. My sincere condolences.

It's so sad. We all have our speculated time on earth, I hope he did accomplish most of his dreams.
