Hello fellow Liskers!!
I fell in love with the blockchain revolution three years ago and since then my interest has been growing exponentially. I have been working on the IT field for 15 years, I see blockchains as the future and LISK for me is inspiring: it is a way to access to the future and make a better world.
As a blockchain enthusiast I see Lisk as a great opportunity to participate from the beginning in the construction of something special. We can learn from other projects like Bitcoin, Ethereum and many other crypto projects: identify improvement areas, learn from their success and failures, etc. And there is space for everybody.
My intent as a delegate will be to promote a resilient and secure network as well as a growing and healthy ecosystem.
Before summer I had an initial investment in Lisk, but I decided recently to increase my holdings to 200k+ LSK. This is a prove of my commitment with Lisk: founders, team, investors, community and even future users. I humbly request your vote and I will do whatever is in my hand to make Lisk a best practice and success story. Thanks a lot.
My delegate node is "tembo": address 2433857930558702776L
and I will vote from "tembo_votes": address 5908623295261408768L (do not vote for this address)
Besides spending time with family, my hobbies include trekking, reading, music, travel to enjoy and learn from other cultures and investing. It is important to note that once money from the traditional investment pools (investment and pension funds) can find its way to reach blockchain projects, there will be an ocean of money ready to invest in the development of new blockchain apps and that will lead to massive adoption. That is the reason I also support the ICONOMI (ICN) project. They made an ICO a couple of months ago in which it was allowed to participate with Lisk natively (thank you) and I consider they are making great first steps. Everything is inter-related but let's go back to LISK!
It is not as important to start with a super-machine cluster as being able to identify quickly better working architectures and be able to scale fast when necessary. With that in mind I plan to start as follows:
Edit 25/11/2016: After chating with great Liskers with huge experience on testnet (like Gr33nDrag0n, ccc01, etc) I will adjust my node and follow their recommendations. Thank you very much for your inputs, I love blockchain spirit of sharing, openness...great!!
4 GB RAM
40 GB SSD
Low latency network
I believe bandwidth and latency will be the most important things, at least at the beginning.
To ensure productivity and quality right now main server is in Amazon AWS Ireland.
As a delegate I will also support Lisk testnet. It is critical from the development and security stand point.
Current Contributions or Planned Contributions to the Lisk Ecosystem
I am currently contributing spreading the word about Lisk around my community, and I can help with the spanish community in general.
I believe Lisk architecture is good and the deployment of sidechains a great idea, but at the moment I am concerned about security in general. We need to make Lisk rock solid. Ethereum's problems (known and potentially unkown) probably are related to their VM architecture and there is also the uncertainty associated with each new smart contract. Even if we propose a better solution through the sidechains I think we very much need to ensure security at many different levels specially at the beginning: mainchain, sidechains, lisk bapp testing and deployment, etc. That is the reason I will initially distribute forging as follows:
50%: looking for initiatives in the security area as described above.
30%: voting weight (long term hold)
10%: cover IT costs.
10%: personal expenses (profit)
ps. I have already scheduled a meeting with a cryptography and security specialist referenced by a working fellow. It is been rescheduled twice but I hope we can talk about blockchain and I can introduce him to Lisk and learn some things.
Edit 28/11/2016: I met with the guy and he is a first class individual. Excellent developer but more important, he has deep cryptography and security knowledge. He is working at the moment in a formal verification framework for Ethereum. The objective is to ensure that a smart contract does what it is supposed to and nothing else. We talked a lot about Lisk platfom, Lisk Community and our potential. We met this morning again and I am very happy to say he is going to make a mainnet/testnet node proposal soon. I will sell him 40k LSK at market price in order to let him feel LSK (still problems at the exchanges, no transfers) and I think that way we gain a great member for our community.
Edit 11/12/2016: He finally made a proposal by the delegate name "veriform"...and he won one of the first prizes!! Congratulations Veriform!!
Lisk is a great blockchain app platform. It will start small and scale rapidly in the Internet of Things, social bapps, identity, small loans and banking for the unbanked, etc. We can really help the world and it is very much needed. I am in!
As you can see, I support Lisk with a good chunk of my savings as prove of my commitment and I have been spreading the word to other fellow investors about Lisk. This kind of actions will have a more visual and tangible effect when we launch first blockchain applications. Lisk from the investment side was my entry point due to my hobbies but now I am believer, and I request your vote to multiply my participation, support spanish community, help increase security and together we will do our best to make Lisk the best practice of the blockchain industry.
