      Good application has my vote.

      Currently a member of the xx network forum and an xx discord server.

      Have limited experience creating content for YouTube, used to edit/upload videos.

      The xx blockchain appears to be very security-oriented. Placing high value on security is crucial for the future we are headed toward as the world becomes smaller due to connectivity and decentralization.

      Thank you! I’m excited to be a part of the community!
