Delegate - Goose - 90% Share

  • image


    Hello! I consider myself new to the crypto world, however I have embraced it whole hearted in the past 6 months and haven’t looked back. I’ve been tinkering with computers ever since I was given a Commodore 64 to play with at a very young age.

    I’ve been somewhat skeptical of blockchain technology and its evolution over the past few years especially given the fact that everyone wants to run their own blockchain. Then I learned about ARK a few weeks ago and was convinced that this platform and smartbridge technology is what will bridge the silos of blockchains I see building up all around us.

    I’m proposing myself as a delegate under the nickname goose. You can reach me on slack @goose if you have any questions on my proposal


    Based on what I’ve seen so far, I strongly believe that Ark will be successful because of the fantastic community backing and contributions. I would also like to contribute to supporting the devnet as well. To that end I’m proposing the following. The forged ark share will be 90%.
    Other Details:

    Forged ark share interval: 211 blocks (approx every 24 hours)

    • No minimum/maximum payout.
    • tx fees are covered
    • Minimum ARK wallet eligible for payment - 1 ARK

    Note: distribution times may vary due to when blocks are forged. In addition, if there are network issues with excessive block times (which has happened periodically) it will take slightly longer to hit 211 blocks for share distributions.

    As noted below in post 47 (TBW announcement), share interval will switch to 316 blocks (share approx every 36 hours) at 250 voters. After I hit 350 voters share will be set to 422 blocks (approx every 48 hours).


    I plan to run 3 nodes (2 mainnet, 1 devnet). Note: I plan to upgrade as needed to meet the needs of the network

    Mainnet Node – Primary
    Host: Vultr
    CPU: 2 vCore
    RAM: 4GB
    DISK: - 60GB

    Mainnet Node – Backup (stand by)

    Host: Vultr
    CPU: 2 vCore
    RAM: 4GB
    DISK: - 60GB

    Devnet Node - Home Ubuntu Server

    Thanks for reading – vote for me if you can!

    NOTE: If any transactions are sent to my delegate in error I will make every attempt to return the funds, however I cannot make any guarantees especially as it is dependent on the timing of said transactions.

    Also all my voters are responsible for declaring and paying taxes on earned forged reward distributions.

  • updated with DevNet and revised profit share

  • also… if anyone has large balances that can get me forging right away and reduce the total amount of votes I’m flexible on payment arrangements and possibly %share

  • Update - I am at 85% and need a few more voters. If I can get 300-400k more from a limited number of voters I will remove the fidelity requirements and go to daily payouts.

  • Update: at about 95%… Almost there

  • I am now officially forging… looking for some more votes to get a more secure spot in the top 51. Thanks!

  • Update to daily payment, 24 hour fidelity and limit of 20 voters

  • still looking for some more voters! I’m forging now so come earn some ARK :)

  • update - opening the pool to 50 voters :)

  • Looking for some smaller wallets to add to my delegate. Effective immediately I will cover voting fees of any wallet with a balance up to 10000. DM me with your address for reimbursement on slack (@SG).

  • Payments have continued to flow…and voters fees paid. Enjoy!

  • Daily payments continue to be processed as usual. Still looking for more voters! If your wallet is less than 10k pm me or dm me on slack to have your vote cost reimbursed

  • Thanks for all my delegates for supporting me this first month (almost)! I’d like to announce some small changes going forward…

    First and most exciting I’d like to announce a 1 month anniversary promotion that I will be running starting October 15, 2017 and will run for 4 weeks. All my voters (and new ones) will be eligible for a weekly raffle for a random voter (raffle results will be recorded and posted in delegate channel). Details are as follows

    Week 1 (10/15 - 10/21) - 5 ARK prize
    Week 2 (10/22 - 10/28) - 5 ARK prize
    Week 3 (10/29 - 11/4) - 10 ARK prize
    Week 4 (11/5 - 11/11) - 20 ARK prize

    RULES: To be eligible for the drawing you need to have been an active voter as of the beginning of that prize week with the exception of the final week which is for long term loyal voters who have voted for at least 3 weeks.

    Secondly, I am discontinuing my DevNet fund and will be announcing an new initiative SOON for what the 2% contribution will go towards so I’m very excited about that.

    Finally I am opening my pool up to all voters (no voter limit). One possible impact that will have is that once I hit 50+ voters I will go to payments every 2 day to manage fees however that should be very short term if it happens and will revert to daily or 2x daily payments once the new mainnet upgrade is released.

  • Just got bumped out of the top 51…need about 2k additional votes to get back in…would appreciate any additional voters support!

  • Back in! Thanks for voting for me!

  • Weekly raffle entry for week 1 closes on Monday. Get your votes in to be eligible now!
