Very strong application :+1:

This guy is one of the most technically advanced ones I know. He really helped me overcome some technical difficulties in the shortest possible time. I hope for further cooperation with this man)
He is 100% suitable for this project.


I strongly support this application and know this guy personally, he helped me a lot in various validator projects and set-ups, always supportive and reliable. Strong for XX project.


we should have this guy on board! not taking him would be a mistake

Great candidate with a very strong background. Has my vote.

Unfinished app, should be disqualified.

If you can not even finish the simple application then how can you be trusted as a node for smooth main net launch?

Hey Junius, I see you’ve joined a few days ago and tried to gaslight almost all applications? what’s the reason for?

My application is finished, I din’t reply to last few optional questions as I don’t see the reason to say many words regarding the decentralized networks or privacy phylosopy discussions etc. I leave this to marketing, while my profile says about the real experience as validator.

So, @Junius, please, calm down, only constructive criticism.

Why do you have the same answer as all the other applications that I “gaslighted”?

You seem to be confused on gaslighting and what that means. This is a democratic process anyways.
Nobody is doing anything except stating an opinion on a group of applications that use the same answers and do not even finish the questions either.

Why do you all have the same answer for that question?

@Junius First figure out to the end why most of them have the same content in this section, and then write something! And then write slander! There were ready-made answers with checkboxes in the form and candidates chose ready-made answers from them! Therefore, many people have the same here!

I believe this would be your node. Could you have a look? It’s not doing very well. If you need any help, just ask.
