ViperTKD - Sharing 50% with voters - for a Stable and Secure network - 20+ years experience in IT

Thu Apr 07, 2016 3:34 am

Introduction

==============================================================================================================

Update (2017-05-09): Currently sharing 50%!! Don't miss your chance!!

==============================================================================================================


Hello,

I'm ViperTKD from Canada, and I've been in IT for more than 20 years. I've been a developer and a sysadmin for many years and now I'm managing multiple teams of very experienced sysadmin.

I joined Lisk in the early days of testnet (vipertkd) and I've been always involved since then installing and testing every releases on my nodes as I wanted to be ready and well prepared for the mainnet at go live and for when the forging would start.

Since then I've spent a lot of time fine tuning and securing my nodes as well as writing scripts to monitor and automate most of the required tasks in order to keep a good uptime.


Server Specifications

MainNet Forging node and backups:
  • All nodes in different datacenters for better resiliency
  • 4 vCPU
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 90 GB SSD
  • DDOS protection
  • OS secured following industry standard best practices

MainNet Public Wallet (https://lisk-login.vipertkd.com):
  • 2 vCPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 45 GB SSD
  • DDOS protection
  • OS secured following industry standard best practices

TestNet Forging node and backup:
  • 2 vCPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 40 GB SSD
  • OS secured following industry standard best practices


Current Contributions or Planned Contributions to the Lisk Ecosystem

I have written a few guides (in the guide section of the forum) that might be useful for people who want to build a node or become a delegate.
I'm maintaining a Public Wallet on the MainNet (just in case the official one would be down or under attack):
https://lisk-login.vipertkd.com

And finally, here's how I'm planning to spend the Lisk that I will forge (this is the potential breakdown that may change depending on Lisk price and external factors):
  • 50% of forged Lisk shared with voters
  • Up to 50% to nodes maintenance and to my own blockchain apps development projects (current top 2 projects in mind are in gaming)
  • Up to 25% to the development of Lisk and blockchain apps which will be distributed between funds and projects that I deem worthy
  • Potential 10% for social events in Canada (Montreal) to promote Lisk (such as meetup and/or conference)

Ending Statement

My primary goal is to provide stable and secure nodes to support the network. I am putting a lot of emphasis on security as I think it is one of the most important factors in choosing a good stable delegate to vote. I have multiple security layers, and I'm constantly looking for ways to improve them.

I currently have multiple nodes running on the TestNet even though the MainNet is currently live. I believe in maintaining a functional TestNet as it is crucial to have a good place be able to test new versions as well as new node configurations, automation scripts, and more.

I have multiple nodes on the MainNet that are in different locations, with different providers, and on different distro. I believe in diversity (even though it's more work to maintain) as it is key to a secure and stable MainNet. I have active remote monitoring on all these nodes with pushed notification on my phone so that I can react quickly and provide the best uptime possible. I also have automatic fail-over scripts to switch between the active and backup node in case of problem.

Note that I will also vote for other candidates but a vote for me doesn't guarantee my vote. I'm looking for delegates that will provide stability (uptime), security, geodiversity and who are bringing something to the Lisk community. I think those are key factors to the success of Lisk.

Thanks!

I checked your candidacy and I added you to my list as well. I like that you are in Japan because we need geodiversity for a stable network. I also voted your note on the Testnet.

See you around in the Forum or Chat!
