Delegate - Goose - 90% Share
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!

Payments continue to go out daily! Thanks to all my voters. I’m currently working on getting true block weight to allow an even fairer distribution of share to my voters.
Hello voters! I’m making an update to my proposal to reflect that I will be shutting down the devnet fund effective today.
Currently there is a balance of 530.14458826 (Ark address -
AY4f3XX3tg73RLGghReqe7LhT7Wob8nrWv) for those that want to confirm the funds are there. I plan to distribute the funds when the next core update is released to reward testing activities in a manner currently TBD for those contributing to testnet as an additional bounty to what the Ark team offers (if any).
Going forward I plan to maintain the public pool at a 92% share rate and am currently looking to continue to contribute to the ark community in other ways. In the works is a goose snapshot server to help further decentralize the reliance on 1 or 2 main snapshots servers for ark-nodes.
When I set up the devnet fund it was meant to help provide a type of bounty for the individuals that work hard every day to run devnet servers and help test changes prior to mainnet to help ensure a more stable Ark Mainnet overall.
Over the past month or so the delegates have been working together to help continue to maintain the stability of the network through sharing logs as well as other items. One delegate (arkx @faustbrian on slack) has definitely stepped up and open sourced a script called Noah which helps rebuild nodes in the event of an error automatically (most of the time) before a block is even missed which further helps keep nodes green and forging 8 sec blocks to keep mainnet running. This is great for voters and delegates alike. @fausbrian worked with several delegates to test it out on mainnet as well as devnet.
Overall @faustbrian’s contribution met the spirit of what I was looking to achieve with the devnet fund and as such I have taken out 130 ARK and tipped him via slack as a reward/bounty for all his hard work over the past few weeks to get Noah up and running.
See the tx below for confirmation
Payments continue to roll daily as usually. Looking for some more votes to secure a safer forging spot! Currently at 51! Great share % based on my total votes as of now for new and existing voters!
As usual, daily payments continue! Thanks to all my voters for your support
I made one small update to my proposal in order to address accidental transactions. I had a user send 14k ARK to my delegate about a month ago and I was able to save the funds prior to the distribution to my voters in that instance. However, I cannot guarantee the same result for any future occurrences. I will do my best to reverse any accidental transactions however there is no guarantee that if you send funds directly to my delegate I will recover them prior to daily distributions. If anyone has any questions please let me know here or on Slack
@goose Awesome job so far. Voted for you because of your proposal. 92% and daily payout with no minimum + tx fee covered. I’m glad you’e climbed to the top 20 and even top 10. Hopefully you can keep it up.
Thanks for the words of support, I appreciate it! I have some things in the hopper that are coming down the pipeline so hopefully even more good stuff to announce soon
Payments continue to roll. A few quick updates…
Any reconnico voters still looking to make the switch please contact me. I will reimburse your 2 ark fee for switching votes to me.
I’m in the testing phase of rolling out true block weight for my delegate. What this means is fairer payments for all my voters especially for those that are holding longer term. Also it will add an additional layer of pool hopper protection.
If anyone has any questions feel free to reach out here or on slack (@goose).
