I know this applicant as a professional miner who operates several GH of GPUs and numerous mighty servers (he takes first 2 places in my spreadsheet qkchash bench mentioned earlier). He surely will be capable of running a node with all his technical skills.

I’m the author of this application!

Greetings to all the participants who care about this project! I am very happy to see friends and acquaintances among them, and also hope to find new friends and colleagues,cryptophanates like me personally!))

I started working in the field of IT five years ago with DBMS, and a year later I discovered a blockchain. The ideas and principles that captured my mind forever. Three years later, I quit all activities and spent the entire past year devoting myself only to cryptoindustry.

For all 4 years I have been actively involved in more than a dozen projects of blockchains at different stages, both in the test network and in the main network. (For example, ETH, ZEC, CREA, ETN, 3DC, BEAM, MOAC, GRIN, QKC, etc.)

At the moment I am the owner and co-owner of several small gpu and cpu data centers in different cities of Ukraine.

I love to try everything new and based on my experience, I see a perspective in elixxir.
I’ll be happy to become a part of this promising startup!!
