Thanks for posting here and getting involved. Sounds like you've made great contributions to other areas in crypto-currencies in the past.
There is another post here that polls delegates with some basic questions, submitting your answers might encourage others to vote you in: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=7175.0
I'll toss some votes for you, but would like to know if you have any plans for the 80% pay rate funds you are keeping. If it's just to pocket for yourself that is fine, but if you plan to fund things within the community that would be extra incentive for votes edging you over others that don't disclose the plans for their payouts.
Thank you for your kind words and support. You have given me valuable advice. I like to thank you with my votes and support.
You are right to ask my plan for delegate bitcube. No, I do not intend to pocket the fund. Not at all. If you look at my work for the Vertcoin community, you would know that I have been doing it for free. The Vertcoin P2Pool real-time node finder was fully funded out of my own pocket. It has been drawing a lot more miners and I believe it plays an important role in helping to make Vertcoin's vision of Decentralisation possible. And the Vertcoin ProxyPool has a pool fee of 0.25% (market average is 2%) which barely covers the cost. I was not doing it for short-term/immediate gain. I was planting a seed for long-time growth.
I am now part of the Bitshare community and I would like to call it my new home. I intend to contribute to and grow with Bitshare for the long haul.
I am from Singapore, a vibrant trading hub for South Asia. Bitshare is a wonderful new technology for trading and investment. But it is relatively unknown outside the crypto world. I believe the 'first step' for Bitshare is adoption. We have massive opportunity for Bitshare to gain adoption in South Asia - namely Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. My goal for delegate bitcube would be to put up efforts towards the gaining of adoption in this part of Asia. Edit: With the successful launch of the Get Free KeyID faucet, the effort towards mass adoption is now extended to the whole world.
I would try to answer the rest of the questions:
1. what for do you spend your delegates income?
Efforts towards the adoption of Bitshare in South Asia.
2. whats your burn-rate and why?
80% pay-rate. 20% burn-rate. I believe part of the fund, 20%, should return to the shareholders. The major part of the fund (estimated 60%) would be to use for actual adoption activities. The rest would be to cover cost.
3. where is your delegate located?
Singapore, the trading hub of South Asia
4. whats your machine/connection/redundancy specs?
Intel Xeon E5-2630L, 4GB RAM, residing in a data centre in Singapore. Backup power is taken care by the data centre.
5. "short" up to 300 character description why are you running a delegate or many of them
I am runing one delegate called bitcube. Please see above for description.
6. are you related to other delegate operators?
7. how many delegates are in your control?
Please support Bitshare adoption in South Asia. Please vote for delegate bitcube.
