Vote for chris (delegate) at Ark.io and earn Ark

I knew I could vote for a delegate at Ark.io. I’m excited about Ark but also knew I could earn Ark through their consensus algorithm, “delegated proof of stake”.

I voted for Chris (Delegate) after I read the proposals https://www.arkdelegate.com/
Here is his delegate proposal:
https://forum.ark.io/topic/322/chris-a-delegate-to-deliver-real-world-use-cases-games-demo-apps-iot-public-pool

Chris’s delegate example (at time of writing of this blog):

Chris – a delegate to deliver real world use cases (games, demo apps, IOT) – public pool

Chris – a passionate community developer delegate proposal

“Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work” (by Vince Lombardi)

Nice to e-meet you. My name is Chris:mountain_bicyclist_tone4: and I am proposing myself as a delegate. Not so long ago I was introduced to ARK community and since then I am amazed by the work, enthusiasm and the willingness to always help to anyone who reaches out. And of-course – you have to love the crypto part 🙂

Working with technology, seeing how it helps people and disrupts traditional concepts is one of my basic passions that has driven me on my path.

Seeing the ArkEcoSystem and checking all the possibilities it will provide, motivated me to become an active community developer and also to help on other projects – to deliver real world use cases supported and underlined with the ArkEcoSystem platform.

:bar_chart: MY MISSION

To develop and deliver a bunch of real world use cases supported and underlined with the ArkEcoSystem platform (Client apis, node implementation, games development, IOT demo samples…).

Support the ARK Network with stable and fast nodes. Currently running for(5) nodes. Two(2) on main network, and the (3) on the newly created DEVNET – to get it going faster

To build partnership with other community members and work on projects together

Spread to word of ARK Ecosystem on local events, also including it in academia curriculum and various papers and talks (where fitted and important)

:loop: MY SKILLS
I come from a strong software engineering background, that was upgraded with management and leadership experiences, completed two business accelerator programs, launched a medical startup.

My software engineering background has enabled me to quickly adapt to technology changes and to make use of the available tooling in the best possible way. I speak several programming languages (java, python, c# and golang), which I learned thru various industry related projects. I am also very skilled in networking and system administration (linux more than windows). I just love ##TECH 🙂

Getting to know the ARK community and it’s supportive ecosystem has enabled me to return to my passion – developing software supported with real world use cases – and at least for a few hours a day escape from the boring management tasks.

:name_badge: MY WORK
Starting with ARK, I contributed with ARK.NET Client for the ARK blockchain, that is opening doors to a wide range of industry solutions (corporate applications and unity framework games) based on well spread and accepted .NET Framework from Microsoft.

I also completed ARK-Go-Lang implementation of the client in GO-LANG programming language, that enables ARK to run at full GO speed; especially on smaller IOT devices supported with GOBOT and FIRMATA.

ArkGO client comes with included delegate functionalties (profit sharing, calculation, REST service api for your own pool setup)

:white_check_mark: Completed projects:
ARK.NET Client API for ARK BlockChain (dotnet client implementation)
Tutorials and notes on GitHub wiki
Running four(5) active ARK-nodes. Two(2) powerfull nodes for MAINNET and three(3) to support DEVNET
ARK-Go-Lang client implementation aiming to become also a full node implementation in GO
ARK-Go Pool Server delegate pool implementation with REST api
Performance testing…

:arrow_forward: Ongoing projects:
GOARK-NODE implementing an ARK relay NODE (rebuild in developed from scratch in golang). Main goal is to build a node, that will be easy to setup and install as a relay node, can run with minimum resources, while providing the same speed, efficiency and security. After completion want to add IPFS support to the node and some other candies:).
ARK c/c++ client implementation – work in progress… (soon, helping out)

:book: Waiting in line
UNITY port of ARK.NET Client Client API – enabling all unity developed games to integrate ARK Ecosystem as it’s supportive payment platform (in game purchases)
Integration of ARK.NET Unity API into a mobile based game – dARK Matty Game and deliver the updated game on AppStore and Google Play (reaching more users, enabling them to use ARK as payment platform). Best players will be rewarded with ARK, and also first XX players will get bonus ARK amounts to be used for in-game purchases.
Support the stability of the network with relay notes. Currently I am running four(4) nodes, one on MainNet and three(3) on newly established DEVNET

:arrow_right: Next projects:
ARK-Node on Arduino and Raspi (enabling the usage in various IOT projects and spreading the network). Using GOBOT framework and firmata.
Delivering demo use-case implementations of IOT ARK based blockchain (home automation, stock control and tracking, patient parameters tracking…)
There are more – but we have to focus…

:package: MY PROPOSAL
85% – shared among the voters
15% – reserve for ongoing based projects support and to enable nodes to run smooth and efficient (running 5 nodes)

Rewards will be payed randomly based on your vote weight.

:goal: TEAM EFFORT TO REACH THE GOALS AHEAD

I am looking for community partners who want to contribute with their knowledge and skills to the project, as well as partner voters that will benefit from the sharing of forged ARK.

:tickets: FINAL WORLDS

Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result. (by Oscar Wilde)

Creating and building a new ecosystem together with the community is something I care about – and this is what will create the conditions that we need to strive together.

I believe that my time, skills and effort is well spent and will do my best to grow and share the love for ARK (new implementations usages, various talks and mentions on conferences and in the long run – delivering practical value of custom ARK blockchain implementations – supported by various use cases as defined above).

Thank you for taking your time and reading the proposal. Now let’s achieve great things together!

CONTACT ME
I am usually active on slack, so drop me DM and I will reply asap.

So that was a good proposal and why I voted for it! There were many I considered, and so should you. Here read them all, and use the power of the vote wisely, each one is unique, and that includes what you can earn!
https://forum.ark.io/category/5/delegates

Chris was also helpful in showing me the ropes on how to work the system.

This was the last payment batch and it includes 4 days of “FORGING” (Ark’s term for mining). https://www.arkdelegate.com/transactions?pk=72&ts=2017-12-17T20:17:56.745182948Z

here you can check pending payment / earned but not yet payed out
https://www.arkdelegate.com/pending-payments
and here you can see what you already earned
https://www.arkdelegate.com/your-payments?address=AYVt7m14xK8K2SRw7xLrYvwHCWMED3DVjt – for a given address

So first you need to get an Ark wallet to even vote and you need to pay 1 Ark to vote.

And this was from another delegate, @boldninja, a co-founder of Ark.io, aka Rok Cernec:
https://blog.ark.io/how-to-vote-or-un-vote-an-ark-delegate-and-how-does-it-all-work-819c5439da68

*Once you are set up with the wallet, and have tested it, made sure it sends and receives properly, and that you wrote down your passphrase and backed it up properly (always consider best practices with your stack!) you can follow the guides on how to vote.
I admit I got confused a bit when it asked me for the name of Chris, I had to figure it out it’s lower cap chris, which made a difference!
Also when it asked me for my passphrase, I was not even thinking about what I considered as the “seed phrase” but it was that, long passphrase.

ALSO WORTH NOTING IS THE NEED TO INCLUDE PASSPHRASE AND REMEMBER TO INCLUDE THE SPACE BETWEEN THE WORDS! AND THEN DON’T ADD A SPACE AFTER THE LAST WORD. ENTER, VOTE JUST AS INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE SHOW. EARN ARK.

I enjoyed the process as opposed to the rigged elections I am used to in society. Take a closer look at Chris’s delegate proposal, and consider supporting his efforts, and you too can earn some Ark.
