Being a delegate will mean more than just keeping the network operational by forging blocks with a good uptime. I will use my income to contribute with new tools for Ark's community.
I have already set up my node on the devnet and I am confident of my ability to become a successful delegate on the mainnet as well.
My first tool will be a notification icon app to see quickly if your delegate is inside the top 51 and to make sure it is forging. It can be used by delegates to independently check their nodes are operating and by voters to be alert if their delegate is not forging anymore. The icon appears in your notifications area next to the computer's clock so you can always see the status of your delegate. I hope to release it before end of year if I am a delegate.
I will share 70% of the forged Ark with the voters and pay every day.
