I follow blockchain technology since 2014 and I’m convinced that it will bring to transaction ecosystem what wheel brings to technology. I’m particulary interested in BTC, ETH/ETC, ICN, LISK and ARK wich is in my opinion a limitless blockchain concept.
MY NETWORK SETUP
I run 2 nodes using Vultr VPS. One is runing arky delegate, the second is a relay node that will be used as backup when needed.
Ubuntu 16.04.1 x64
1024 MB / 1 CPU @ 2.4 GHz
25 GB SSD Disk
1 TB transfer
I maintain 3 projects of my own on the PYthon Package Index: YawTtk (a Python wrapper for the modern tk widget set Tile), Gryd (great circle computation and projection library) and Tyf (a pythonic way to read and write IFD and EXIF data).
Since January 2017, I contribute to ARK ecosystem providing a python API to interact with the blockchain. Python is a powerfull multi-platform programing language used by a huge developper community. This API allows ARK fan from the well known magnificent seven to create
arkbot and launch stresstest on testnet improving its strength, giving us today a rock solid main network.
MY DELEGATE :
Since March 21th 2017, I run delegate arky wich was a pool-sharing node giving 30% of forged ARK to its voters. With the ARK price growing, it goes to 95% payout and this percentage is meant to evolve with time according to ARK market capitalization. Small rewards are saved until they reach a minimum of 0.09 ARK so no one is left on the road !
Payout occurs every 1000 forged blocks. Minimum vote required is 10 Ark
