Given the current news, I decided to lower my sharing to 50%. I'll reconsider this decision when there will be more information.

About me

Hello there, thanks for reading my proposal.

My name is cactus1549, I’m twenty three and I’m currently studying Computer engineering at university. I like coding, planes and tech stuff in general, including crypto.

I joined the DPoS community more than three years ago with a few ark fork projects. During this time, I have run several delegates and I have gained enough experience to understand how to do it properly. I’m currently running a delegate for Ark and Solar. I used to run delegates for Compendia, Hydra, Unikname, qredit, ripaex and lwf too.

My Projects


Collaborated with delegate GYM/Alessio to make a plugin to enable interoperability between Core 2.7 and Core 3.0 which brings several advantages, such as when migrating from core 2.7 to core 3.0 as it means delegates can still forge on their backup 2.7 nodes while their main nodes migrate to 3.0, preventing any downtime so the network will not be disrupted and there would be no chance of transactions getting lost during the migration. It also means that core 2.7 can support the new switch vote transaction and legacy 2.x plugins can continue to run on 2.7 nodes on the new network until they are properly ported, and any services that depend on API queries that were removed or changed in 3.0 can continue to use 2.7 nodes for that purpose. Similarly older versions of the ARK Desktop Wallet will continue to work if connected to one of those peers. It also works in the other direction so core 3.0 nodes can connect to existing core 2.7 networks so users can get a head start in migrating and testing their 3.0 plugins on an existing live network.

Ark Monitor Telegram Bot

I’m currently working on a Telegram bot that gives you information about your delegate and/or the wallets you use to vote. Here some of the most important functions:

  • Get in a click of a button all the information you need like wallet balance, transactions or rednodes without having to open explorer or desktop wallet.
  • Receive a notification on important events like transactions on your wallet, delegate missing blocks or delegates position/votes changes so that you can always be aware of what is going on.
  • Voters can be notified if something goes wrong with the delegate they are voting for if it misses blocks or gets out of forging position.

I’m planning to introduce other features:

  • [✓] - Possibility to monitor multiple wallets and/or delegates (only 1 delegate and 1 voter wallet now)
  • [✓] - More information on the delegate's position/votes change notifications (The transaction that has caused that change)
  • [✓] - Get share percentage directly from arkdelegates (Removed)
  • [✓] - Make it a core plugin
  • [ ] - Other will be added in the future

You can find a Monitor bot for Compendia too here (not online anymore).

Reward Calculator for Bridgechains

A simple website where you can calculate easily your expected rewards when voting for a delegate and their uptime. This is available for:

  • Compendia (not online anymore)
  • Hydra (not online anymore)

My proposal

  • Delegate name: cactus1549
  • Sharing: 80% every 24 hours (Payouts at midnight Italian time)
  • Using custom TBW script to prevent pool hopping
  • NO MIN ARK required, NO max cap, perfect for small voters
  • NO MIN payout (every voter gets paid every day)
  • 20% will be used to cover mainnet and devnet servers costs/mantaining and projects developing.
