Crypto Guy In South
Africa (CryptoGuyInZA) is Cryptocurrency Enthusiast in South Africa
providing Insight & Sharing Own Experience With Industry Leading
Digital Currencies Based on Block Generation Technology.
I am 34 years old and
reside in South Africa, my name is Louis. I work as IT consultant and have been
working in IT for over 13 years. I have exposure working with various pieces of
software and can adapt as needed. I have a personal passion for Cryptos and taking this journey with the Tron community.
I believe that most people involved
in Cryptocurrencies are outside of the African continent and are large
companies, I would like to be one of the first real independent ambassador for
crypto in Africa and want Tron to be one of those Cryptocurrencies. I strongly
believe Cryptocurrencies should be for the people and need independent people
like me, I do not believe they should be centralized or be controlled by large companies. I also believe that I have excellent English which will assist to
expand the Tron message into English speaking countries.
Website & Social Media
Below is my social
media presence and website details
I will start off with
AWS hosting for flexibility purposes. I would then like to move to either physical
hardware or to a local cloud provider in order to fully show Africa presence. I will start with AWS server and
expand as needed.
Ideally, I want to
have several nodes, the nodes as following
- Testnet node – m5.xlarge
- Mainnet nodes to have 2 or 3
- Mainnet additional nodes will be backup
nodes ready to take over from primary node or to work in cluster mode. Busy
looking at failover options and will implement the best possible option.
- Mainnet nodes will comply with
Tron recommendation of AWS x1.16xlarge.
Server placement is AWS United States East (Ohio)
Server configuration for Mainnet Node is x1.16xlarge 64 core 1T memory 20T SSD storage (EBS) 25G bandwidth
Testnet node is already launched and actively
testing with the community. One of the first up and running.
Remember I'm an average person using my own money to run nodes for the enjoyment of Tron
The idea is to use
the majority of the Tronix that is earned as Super Representative to go back
into Tron ecosystem, no Tronix will
be withdrawn for my own benefit in the first year. All Tronix will be used in
the first year for the following
- Tron will be used to increase
hardware capacity for my SR slot.
- As hardware capacity needs are
met then the amounts of Tronix retained will be less and more will be given to
the community. Ideally if future Tron explorer shows who votes for my SR I
would like to payout Tronix to these voters to the proportion of the Tronix
used to vote.
- I will immediately start
sharing with Tron community when in top 27 and creating blocks, Tronix will be shared by launching several initiatives to promote Tron. Within
1-2 month from launch my share percentage will increase drastically to be
sharing up to 80% of Tronix (after hardware expenses) with ecosystem in the
form of 70%-75% with voters, 5%-10% to donate to development projects within
ecosystem. All payments made to Tron voters with balances above a specific % on a regular basis! % to be determined based on transaction expenses at a later stage when mainnet launched.
- Any Tron remaining will be left
in Tron network for future funding. No Tronix will be withdrawn for my own benefit in the first year.
Community Support Plan
As illustrated in the
expenditure plan a lot of Tron will go back into people holding Tron and into
hardware capacity for Testnet, future Betanet and of course Mainnet. Up and
above that I will act as Tron ambassador for Africa continent and will push a
lot of content via these methods
- YouTube videos – I create YouTube
videos illustrating how to do things. These how to videos cover simple things
like how to buy Tron, setup SR nodes, develop on Tron, etc.
- Medium Posts – Similar info but
text based version of YouTube videos
- Twitter – Push out the content
to broader community
- Reddit - Push out the content
to broader community
This content will continue over several years as Tron progresses through its development phases.
Every year as new releases and new milestones reached with Tron the following support for community will be provided
- Nodes for Testnet or any future Betanets
- Donations for initiatives to promote or assist with development of future
- Promote new releases and new features through social media
- Assist the community as needed
I hope the community will allow me the chance to be in a position to make blocks and support the community through Trons future.
Thank you for your time.
