Proposal

To continue working with the UAT/Integrations/QA team for the month of May.

Background

I’ve been around since the inception of Blocknet in 2014 (Blocknet’s ITO) but did not start contributing until I saw a need in 2017. The first moment where I knew I was hooked on helping the project was when Dan asked for volunteers to help test a trade on the DX.

Past Non-Superblock Volunteered Contributions:

  • April 2017 - Testing early stage DX trades w/ atcsecure and recording the process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALxr7MpaIoA (posted by a community member at the time)

  • July 2017 - Created and maintained the blocknet-docs repo where guides and resources were created: https://github.com/BlocknetDX/blocknet-docs

  • July 2017 - Befriending and working closely with 86b we began working on Coin Integrations. With no prior experience on how XBridge worked we dissected the process and upon many frustrating very late nights (early mornings) we successfully integrated our first coin. To this date Integrations has successfully integrated 144 coins and has 263 other coins in various stages of integration.

  • Sept 2017 - Blocknet hard-fork fund verification w/ atcsecure

  • Sept 2017 - Early stage servicenode, staking, trading guides/support
