deadlock ][ FORGING ][ daily 85% profit sharing, tx covered | 15% development and costs ][ True Block Weight & Fair Fees ][ Community developer and ARK Github contributor

  • 👋 Introduction

    Hey, I’m roks0n and I run deadlock delegate. I’ve been invested in ARK since around June 2017. Initially, I wasn’t very active on Slack and in any of the ARKs Github repositories, but after seeing how engaged community, delegates, and ARK core team are I started falling in love with ARK and wanted to get involved more and contribute.

    🛠 Skills

    I’ve been a software engineer for a bit over 7 years and a web developer before that. Besides coding, I’ve also been a team lead for a team of 4 and am used to working closely with project/product managers.

    Tech stack I’m most comfortable with:

    • Python (Django, Flask)
    • Javascript (Node, Vue, Ember)
    • Docker

    I feel comfortable switching between languages and learning new ones if there’s a need. I also do a bit of devops stuff but only on my personal projects. 🤓

    Besides programming, I’ve also worked on SEO and had success with putting 3 website on the top 3 results for several key keywords they wanted to rank for. Note that all of them are for local markets in Slovenia.

    📝 Proposal

    Profit sharing

    • 85% -> goes to voters
    • 15% -> reserved for my ARK related projects/tasks (described below) and ARK github contributions and covering costs of running nodes (mainnet, devnet)

    🛰 Nodes


    • 1st node
      CPU: 4 vCPU
      Memory: 16 GB
    • 2nd node
      CPU: 4 vCPU
      Memory: 16 GB
      Used as backup

  • Hi 👋 I’ve made my tasks (and progress) public on Trello. There’s also a “Feature requests/Ideas” column where I’d be happy to receive any ideas/things you’d like me to work on. You can also vote on tasks which can give me an idea how important/useful/cool something is for others.

    In addition, I’ve made a zap ( that should tweet when a task is moved to “done” column on my Twitter account.

  • Delegates can now post updates (or news) on their claimed delegate page! It’s also possible to link directly to your update like so:

  • Just opened up the API to!

    Here’s one example it can be used by delegates: on, I’ll use it to get data for my stats, proposal and updates!

    If you have any feedback/ideas. Let me know! 🙃

  • I’d like to thank everyone for the continued support. I’m currently already on the 52nd spot and am really excited and grateful for the support! <3

    At the moment I have a little over 400.000 ARK power behind me and I started reaching out to everyone who showed interest supporting me when I start forging.

    If you haven’t reached out yet but are thinking of supporting me, DM me on ARK’s Sack, Twitter, or my delegate’s private Discord. If you have any questions/concerns/feedback I’m super happy to answer/hear it! 🖖

  • It’s only 7 days since my last update and I’m really happy and grateful to say that voting power behind me has increased significantly. At the moment of posting, I only need 284,625.95 more votes to get into the 52nd spot!

    I’d like to thank the ARK community for all of their support they have shown me with their votes, positive comments, feedback, and help. This community truly is one of a kind and we need to cherish and nurture it further so it stays like this when more people join in.

  • Ahoy, everyone! I’m grateful, excited and happy to say that since several hours ago I’ve be actively forging! 🍾 🎉

  • I’ve just upgraded the relay node and will now be upgrading the forging node to the same, more powerful specs. I’m not expecting any downtime. I’ve updated the stats of my new nodes in the proposal.

  • Upgrade complete.

    FROM 2vCPU and 4GB memory
    TO 6vCPU and 16GB memory

  • I’m really happy to announce that two very good friends of mine (commanderkeen and napoo) are joining deadlock delegate to help me with the work. They will be working on improving and adding new features to so I can focus more time to investigate what work is needed and how much time would ARK Chrome wallet take to build.

    New ideas what else can we add to the ARK’s Ecosystem are already brewing, but I’ll share more about that in the upcoming weeks.

    Thank you again for your support and for trusting in us.🖖

  • New update!

    • we’re responsible for writing up the new official python client for ARK
    • yesterday roks0n presented ARK along with delegate Chris on OTS conference in Maribor, Slovenia -> pics to follow. Chris was presenting ARK in general and v2. roks0n was presenting ACES.
    • we’re actively helping to keep devnet up and running
    • figuring out how ACES works and dockerizing its services which will make it even easier to get it up and running

  • We payed our last 90% profit share today and moving forward our payout structure will look as follows:

    • 75% will be share with our voters
    • 10% will be shared directly with ACF for their relay fund and bounties
    • 15% will be kept by us to cover additional relays costs and further developments

    At the time when we shared 90% we were ranning 5 nodes and 2 additional VPS for and other services built by Ark committee. Moving onwards we will spin up 5 additional relays nodes. We will make sure our relays are alwasy in sync and uptime, same as we do with our forging node.

    Starting 1st of October we’ll also be releasing monthly reports containing:

    • Acomplishments in the previous month
    • Plans for the next month
    • Breakdown of costs

    To read more why we’ve decided to change our payouts please read the pledge we’ve made together with Cryptology and The Golden horde:

    Thank you for being out voters so far and we hope to bring more stability, security and developments to Ark. <3

  • Just to given an update that I’ve adjusted the payout percent almost 2 months ago from 75% to 85% but forgot to modify it on the forums.

  • Thank You for the help!! I enjoy seeing what you are adapting towards the arkio community. Keep up the good work!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
