FOLY delegate is a two-person team consisting of PJ and emsy who are both active ARK community developers for several years. We have completed multiple(solo and team-based) projects. Our first team project was ARK Scooters and this is where we first met. We have been continuing to collaborate and here we are explaining our goals and vision in order to, hopefully, run as a delegate. We have a background of unique yet complementary technical skills. emsy is a Dutch full stack software engineer and has developed a large-scale real-time chat application with custom business logic for a company with over 100k customers. His expertise will lead the security and operation of the forging node. PJ is a Canadian electrical engineer and business owner. He has led the development of multiple microcontroller ASICs and embedded wireless electronic devices. PJ has taken several electronic products from proof of concept to high volume manufacturing for some of the largest consumer electronic brands. We will operate the delegate with utmost professional conduct.
Our main goal is that we would like to develop products which can be used to showcase ARK. We would like to demonstrate how and what you’re able to develop using the ARK ecosystem as a toolkit. Another goal is that we would like to lower the bar and offer services which get developers, new or familiar, started easier and faster. We created a bridgechain called Radians for developers to prototype / test with. Developers can submit their plugin and we will host it on our bridgechain, for free! Our vision is to build with ARK and demonstrate its potential to users. We have identified specific opportunities to market ARK and create collaborations with engineering communities outside of the current Slack / Reddit online communities.
In order to reach our goals and vision we would use the forging rewards to cover the costs of hosting, licenses, projects, prototype hardware, outsourcing and donations to encourage other projects / developers to work with ARK. By forging for contributions we believe that we can grow ARK as a whole which is in the end in all our interest.
Please consider voting for us if you agree with our goals and vision.
Some of our past and current projects.
These nodes are all currently operating.
These nodes are currently operating and will be expanded to support IoT projects and services on our roadmap.
These are projects that will potentially be developed if we achieve a forging position.
We’re both active on the ARK Slack. You may DM @PJ and @emsy if you need help or have questions / project ideas.
