Hey! My name is Michel. You might have seen me around on Slack or GitHub as ItsANameToo (which is also the name of my delegate). I have an MSc in Computer Science and have been using my skills since January to actively contribute to the Ark Ecosystem. Since actions speak louder than words, here are some examples:
As you can see, a lot has been done since January, but much more is yet to come!
Why a delegate?
The reason for becoming a delegate is to provide voters with a fair profit share, and to help fund and maintain projects for the Ark Ecosystem. It will also allow me to put more time towards improving Ark and its ecosystem, which will range from keeping contributing to the various repositories, as well as setting up my own Ark-related projects.
I'll be running the following setup:
16GB DDR4 RAM
8GB DDR4 RAM
The mainnet setup will be extended with another relay/backup node as soon as forging starts to increase stability.
Feel free to ping me on Slack (@ItsANameToo) for any questions you have or to chat in general, or follow me around on GitHub!
Thanks for your support!

Created the test suite for the official ARK Explorer
Developed a true block weight payout script in collaboration with arkx called Ploutos: https://github.com/faustbrian/ploutos. It's open source and can be configured to anybody's preferences.
Hi! Due to the development of a custom payout script, I've decided to waive the minimum balance requirement and substantially lower the payment threshold. This means that there is **NO LONGER** a minimum balance requirement, and payments will be done daily for voters that reach the threshold of 0.001 ARK. Balances will carry over to the next day(s) in case the threshold is not yet met! This makes the delegate also suitable for the smallest wallets!
