My name is Marc, you have probably seen me in the ArkEcosystem Slack as @Marc, on GitHub as wownmedia or on Reddit as u/marcs1970. I have been an Arky since November 2017 (HODLing) and became an active part of this community in April 2018. I like to contribute to Ark where I can and you might have seen some of the things I have done:
Like many Arkies I come from the Netherlands, but own a small private company called Cryptology ltd, based in Hong Kong (which is why my delegate is named 'cryptology').
I have graduated my B.Sc Telematics Engineering and delivered my thesis on 'Problem & Performance management for international frame-relay networks' in 1997. Until late 2003 I have served several roles in data communication infrastructure environments, among them designing a nationwide data communication infrastructure for a GSM provider, CTO of a managed hosting company, VP of interconnections for a European ADSL network provider. Since 2003 I have been permanently travelling the world while focusing on the development of Internet projects (developing web applications such as an Online dating site, E-commerce sites, Online magazines and recently dApps and projects such as ArkTippr.
Tl:dr: I know my way around servers, data communication and software development.
Ark is building an ecosystem where anybody can simply create and run a new blockchain... without needing to know anything. To make Ark really accessible to anybody they should also not have to think about the setup and management of their server infrastructure. I believe I can make a difference here with your help:
75% True Block weight, daily payouts of minimum 0.25 Ark.
5% donation to the ACF fund to stimulate the community to add relay nodes to the network.
2% donation to the ArkTippr fund to enable my voters to spread ARK awareness via Reddit.
With the remaining 18% I will sponsor a number of Ark related activities:
I want to experiment with several node server setups to discover weaknesses and strenghts and come up with tested setups that everybody can copy. This is a continuous process.
Like WordPress.org does for WP sites I want to use a part of my forging rewards to sponsor infrastructure for anybody who likes to run or test with an Ark sidechain. I will develop a process for this.
I will provide a stable and high-uptime node infrastructure to Ark Mainnet and Ark Devnet: multiple nodes, spread across different datacenters.
I will build tools that will benefit the Ark Ecosystem, like the addition of a Twitter bot, OTC trading and exchange options to ArkTippr.
Cryptology delegate will contribute to a better Ark infrastructure, help the setup of Ark sidechains in a way that has not been done yet and will provide great applications like ArkTippr to our ecosystem. All I need is your confidence to make this happen: vote cryptology.
