I know @crsmx1 for years and he would be a great addition to the betanet node runners crew. He has solid knowledge and experience in running nodes and he is always willing to help anybody. He is a true decentralization believer and we need believers like him to join our ranks, not people that are here only for money…cheers!

Seems a potentially worthy betanode runner, though it would have been nice to see a fully completed application form.

Hi there,
I would like to add some missing information from my application and also say a big thank you to @nakasku for his kind words!

working as sw / hw support specialist in company focused on complex management of security, operational, technological systems of objects
All my working life I use my knowledge and experience to help others solve technical problems
In recent years, the world of crypto has become my hobby, especially after I found out the background of the functioning of banks and their processes
I believe in the power of decentralization and I would like to be part of a platform that takes the word privacy really seriously!
I have experience with running / managing nodes via google cloud, ms azure, digital ocean,etc. Im active participant in other networks like Arweave,Epic cash,Darma,Pegnet,Verus etc etc…
I can help without problems with writing / editing instructions for node setup.
I think that privacy is one of the basic aspects of an individual’s life and should not be disturbed by the government or private society under any circumstances.
I would very much like to be a part of this project without claiming a reward. I would feel bad inside me if I did not help to change the system for the better in some way.
It is quite possible that quantum computers will break pub / priv keys in a few years and that is why we need to take cryptography to a new level!


Thanks, you have my support :+1:

Сильное заявление! Почему не участвовали в продаже xx?

honestly? I was planning a bigger investment, but in that period unexpected expenses came…that’s life :frowning:
I will definitely not hesitate once the trading on the exchange starts
