This is my friend, I invited him to this project. I think he won’t have any problems.
great node operator!
It sounds like you have experience needed to successfully run a node. Looks good.
Very strong and experienced validator, for sure I would vote in favor.
looks good, the right attitude! you have my support!
Like the attitude and the experience. Seems like a strong candidate.
