As a Cryptocurrency enthusiast I have mostly been on the side of setting up miners and looking for other ways to generate coin. I believe/mining as we currently know it is coming to an end a few years from now and is currently (already) being replaced by masternodes from various coins. Masternodes require a specific threshold to set them up for every coin and that's where Goldnode.io comes in, enabling a lower level entry in joining a masternode we setup and maintain.

With my background in web development, data analytics and general servers maintenance I will be focussing on the masternodes themselve and the technical activities in the background. Next to those activities I will be active in the community to answer any questions you have.

Areas of Expertise

I'm an allround tech enthusiast mostly focussed around web appliances. I started with PHP back when I was 12 years old. Learned MySQL and further enriched that with knowledge on Linux, JavaScript & Node.js. I also know my bits and pieces regarding AngularJS and can work a bit with hardware.

Over the last couple of years I've been mainly involved with projects regarding data analytics and the implementation of data projects.

The last couple of months I've been involved in setting up a Electroneum mining pool which is still running today.

Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem, and a big idea turn into an innovation. So we have Blockchain technology as innovation, but we face the challenge that mining rigs are consuming loads of power ('old problem'). Masternodes and proof of stake will cut the power usage and lowers the impact on our environment. But to keep ownership of masternodes at the community we have to innovate! Put 3 smart people together and Goldnode.io was born!

Blockchain, cryptocurrencies, innovation, exploration. 4 Things that make me wildly enthausiastic. 4 reasons to have 100% trust in the Goldnode.io concept and of course our great team!. It's time to shut down those damn power consuming rigs and start using Masternodes. This way of working is not only way more efficient, but also better for our planet. A place where hopefully still loads of generations can live!

Areas of Expertise

Bought my first Bitcoin in 2014 so I was early among mainstream users but late among the early adopters. It took some time before the “crypto-virus” took a strong hold of me and I started to understand what it actually could mean. I strongly believe cryptocurrencies are here to stay and are changing the way we think of digital assets. Just like Napster (p2p) or Torrents introduced new technologies that are still here today, cryptocurrencies are here to stay also. You cannot remove a profound technology when it already have been used and proven to work by a large number of users. The technologies will only change name and shape - this is what we are seeing in the crypto world in 2017 and 2018. Some projects are here to prevail while most will fail. Quite exciting times ahead!

Before Goldnode project started I have worked in the open-source web development industry for 10 years. My focus is on the communication side of things and I love great layout and graphics.

Areas of Expertise

My area is with marketing and communication in any form, from more classical graphical design, video, print to web design/web development and GUI. Trying to give unified graphics and communication across all channels of 2018.

I have been a entrepreneur in IT / Web since high school and I will bring some of that knowledge to Goldnodes table.
