Hello everybody! I’m espresso delegate and together with my team we develop technologies for blockchain projects. We are a passionate team of Full Stack JS developers and our background is mostly from Lisk, but we have been following ARK since long time and now we decided to actively taking part of the project and community. We are here because we want to share our skills with the community/project.
We have many missions. The first one is plain and simple. Forging is a serious task about maintaining a node in order to secure the blockchain and what we want is to provide a high standard service to the network. Our secondary long term dream goal would be to develop a welcoming “builders-only” community. This in order to create a building task force for the adoption, in order to be ready when there will be the need of getting the hands dirty for the serious projects. The whole idea is to create a developers marketplace to be hire/be hired and a inspiring lounge for open source/pro bono projects. On top of that we plan to share 70% to our voters. With the remaining 30% (somehow we need to finance ourselves) we plan to hold it and use it to develop our own tools for the ARK blockchain and pay the infrastructure costs. Our first step will be to port and report all of our tools suite to ARK.
As said in our introduction, our background is from a similar project. For Lisk we have developed and tested plenty of tools. Some tools had success and some others have been deprecated. Here is a list:
In the past one of our members took part also in the core team of Rise.
For production systems we strive for a 100% network productivity/uptime, while we try to smash our devnet nodes. On other DPOS projects we had a lowest of 99.95% of uptime. As infrastructure for Mainnet we a cluster of nodes. Our nodes are dedicated machines running in different providers in different locations. Our dedicated average machine runs on octacore processors with minimum 16GB of RAM.
Because we convert coffee into code.
Do you consider Americano/Long/Latte/[Add your hot drink here...] as coffe?
Do you plan to support devnet network?
Of course, we are forging there and we use it for testing our tools.
