I am JL who goes by the handle Wolger is running Harmony’s ONECelestial Validator node. I am a Microsoft full stack developer, developing web applications in ASP.NET C#/MSSQL and have some experience in administering servers.
I first heard of blockchain technology which drives cryptocurrency way back in 2017 when I was looking for a job. It was not until two years later I bought and hodl my first cryptocurrencies, BTC and LTC. I discovered Harmony in early 2021, and chose Harmony over others with a bigger market cap after considerable research and studies
I am impressed by Harmony’s technology and its community who will go the extra mile to help a stranger out and their well-planned roadmap to become a major player among Layer1 blockchain protocols. So instead of just becoming an investor in Harmony, I’ve decided to get involved aggressively in its ecosystem to help out and maintaining a validator node is the first step. This is one way I believe will also contribute to Harmony’s ultimate objective to become a fully decentralized network.
As a software developer, naturally I can see myself helping out in coding and network administration and then educating people about Harmony. It will be a long and continuous process like learning a new programming language and I am very glad and excited to be part of the family. Looking forward to building long-term mutually beneficial relationships with Harmony and the community.
