I go by outboard, but my name is Dan. I run the arkoar.group delegate whose purpose is to move the ARK Ecosystem forward through development, participation, and raw computing power. I'm a digital nomad, US citizen, and father of 2 who currently resides in Europe. My delegate node has been actively forging since April of 2018 and is backed by my Estonian company, Cryptobuilders OÜ.
I am a current board member of the Ark Community Fund. I have traveled to Hackathons, Co-Working Spaces, Hostels, and Coffee Shops around the world, sporting the ARK logo on my laptop and talking about my participation in the community.
The generosity and good nature of the existing members has been the primary motivator of my participation.
Many delegates seek to take a minimum fee for running a delegate node. I view the role of a delegate differently. My goal is to provide network uptime and security while also encouraging others to participate in the same goals. My reward structure is therefore not set in stone and will be adjusted as the demands of the network and price of the underlying cryptocurrency changes. At this time the focus is on building on top of V2.
My position as a full time freelancer allows me to dedicate as many hours as necessary to maintaining the stability and security of the ARK network. The delegate node exists to fund my costs, and to help push ARK to the top.
GOALS / ROADMAP
MY NETWORK SETUP
FORGING NODE & PRIVATE RELAY
I see ARK as a potential powerhouse of the Web 3.0 space. Securing the network and ultimately building real world applications that will bring the platform to life is a personal passion. I see a decentralized world where banking, communication, political will, and freedom itself are powered by open source software and hope that ARK has a leading role.
I will always be responsive to your questions and your concerns. I'll be responsible and active when things go wrong. I will work for my voters and the network as a whole.
Thank you for your support,
Dan ACF Board Member [email protected]
