BCboilermaker Delegate : Proposal to Board the ARK!



  • Hi everyone I would like to introduce myself to the ARK community. My name is Grant, I’m a 32 year old Boilermaker from British Columbia, Canada. My real life career I work as a construction Boilermaker for the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers. My certifications include, Red Seal rigger/fitter/welder and a certificate in Gas Process Operations. This type of work is heavy industry which includes Gas Plant and Refinery shutdown/turnarounds. I have been employed with the IBB for close to ten years! Although my main focus is studying and applying my trade, my other interests are skateboarding, snowboarding, music, poker, Forex, finances, technology, reading and studying :)

    My first introduction to Crypto was back in 2011 through a old poker botting forum, the guys I knew back then were ecstatic to sell their mined coins for 20 dollars. Since then I have been a serious crypto enthusiast supporting many different projects experiencing all the ups and down that come along.

    I have built a great reputation in the P2P lending side of bitcoin. Since 2014 I have borrowed and returned more than 80 Bitcoins through 3 different lending platforms. Please check out my borrowing profile. https://btcjam.com/users/15270

  • Hi Grant, thanks for posting your proposal. Good to see a long timer with crypto join us. I used to work on industrial plants myself - a chemical plant near Houston, a satellite factory, some other manufacturing, a tracked vehicle plant, a couple of nuclear facilities, and a natural gas facility. One of our team members is an iron worker, works on ships, so you probably would have a lot to talk about with him as well.

    Thanks for the offer on sharing rewards with team members for development, much appreciated, but do keep in mind our voting system is different on mainnet, so voting for multiple delegates is split among the delegates voted for instead of each one voted for receiving the full weight from the account. We encourage delegates to keep their rewards or share them with their voters in some fashion either directly or as stakes in their project. Community service applications and projects are also a great way to encourage votes.

    Welcome to Ark, glad to see you here!



  • Hello Grant, great proposal, thanks for your support and interest in becoming an Ark delegate, us musicians gotta stick together:guitar: also avid poker player.
    will add you to my vote list, good luck



  • Thanks for checking out my proposal I have setup a second node for different testing purposes so that I can get more familiar with firewalls, logrotating and things of that nature :)



  • I have upgraded my testnet server to some higher specs

    CPU:
    4 vCore
    RAM:
    4096 MB
    Storage:
    90 GB SSD
    Bandwidth:
    4000 GB

    Also , thanks to help from members I have learned how to setup logrotate , and do a memory swap. The next couple tasks I’m working on is to setup some security and firewall in time for the mainnet launch.



  • Looks like a job well done there!!!



  • @michaelthecrypto Hey thanks Micheal . Good meeting you last night! Like I mentioned to you on our phone call I did get the firewall and fail2ban figured out as well! Looking forward to the mainnet launch! :)
