sgdias - #97 - Reliable and secure Lisk nodes, Lisk delegate from Argentina, Transparency guaranteed

Fri Mar 25, 2016 5:08 am


Hi all,

My name is Santiago, I'm a Software Engineer. In the free time I like playing soccer, practicing aikido, spend time with family and follow the news regarding the cryptocurrency world. I have been always amazed about bitcoin perfection as a digital mimic of gold, from a technical perspective its revolutionary how the the byzantine generals problem was resolved. Recently the blockchain technology is being used in lot of aspects, not just the attempt to mimic gold, then the possibilities are huge. During all 2016 I have been very enthusiastic about Lisk, because of the DPOS concept and its pure JavaScript server/client dapps, this is the future for the secure web/mobile applications and smart contracts field!

I participated in the ICO with 0.7 BTC and now I'm interested in the long term safety and integrity of Lisk network, therefore I would like to run for delegate.

I'm experienced in software architecture and programming, I would like then helping the community on any Lisk upgrade discussion.

My values: Honesty, Transparency, Respect, Good Will, Integrity, Professionalism, Solidarity.

My goals:

- Maintain 24x7 an active node
- Always push for Lisk network to remain decentralized
- Always push for competitive fees compared with other apps/dapps markets in order to guarantee Lisk success
- Actively listen to the community concerns and proposals
- Promote healthy debate
- Promote Lisk platform learning so voters are conscious of the Lisk development direction.
- Code review and solution analysis for any hardfork proposal.
- Act as point of contact for Latin-American community (I speak both Spanish and Portuguese)
