!!!added more information in the responses to this post, please see!!!

Hi, this is my application.
I will leave here more information about myself. I have almost 20 years of experience in the IT industry. I like to participate in crypto projects at an early stage and I did it in projects such as Quarkchain (70+ clusters/nodes), NKN (50+ nodes) and others. Now I do not have the physical equipment, but I have the opportunity to rent several cloud servers with the required configuration for Elixxir. Because I am a passionate person and I am interested in doing this. :slight_smile:

I would like to see you given an opportunity as I would like an opportunity. Good luck



It sounds like you have experience needed to successfully run a node. Looks good.



I participated with @Art in the QuarkChain project test. He has a lot of knowledge and I am glad that he joined this project.



I +1 here to @Alive29’s words - worked with @Art at QuarkChain, seen him being very active (participated in almost all AMAs) and helping to other community members (remember those gigahashes hidden in icebergs LOL).

Agree with you, @AGx10k. Here is my voice for @Art as well. Firstly met him on QuarkChain project, supporting others with various questions and concerns. Good luck with new endeavors!



Оne of the most active member of the quarkchain test network! Thanks to his perseverance and communication, the entire community, including myself, learned many interesting questions from the development team. Also responsive and always happy to help.
I am very glad that he is interested in this project and I hope for further cooperation!



At the time of adding the application had little time and did not provide all the information in the application, my mistake, so I will add more info. In addition to the rental, above I forgot to specify the possibility to take the equipment from my best friend for free use. Together with it we will be able to provide at least 2 servers as these:
Intel Core i7-8700 / 32Gb / SSD
AMD Ryzen 7 2700 / 32 Gb / SSD
And since my friend is a professional home miner (about 5GH of his equipment), then no problem to install video cards in these computers, such as 1070-1080Ti in any quantity :smile:



Hey @Art, it would be great if you could spend some time and fill out the application before the June 10th deadline. It would definitely help other users to familiarize with your skill set and earn you a spot during the approval process.

You got my vote mate.
