Hello there, thanks for reading my proposal.
My name is cactus1549, I’m twenty two 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, Compendia, Hydra and swipechain devnet. I used to run delegates for Unikname, qredit, ripaex and lwf too.
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.
The plugin is currently in testing phase and it will be released soon.
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:
I’m planning to introduce other features:
You can find a Monitor bot for Compendia too here.
A simple website where you can calculate easily your expected rewards when voting for a delegate and their uptime. This is available for:
*Network setup will be upgraded with more relay nodes in the future
