Welcome to the very first journal of our recently announced “Ambassador Stories”!
From now on, you’ll be able to weekly enjoy the various, unique stories of our Cardano Community Ambassadors: what motivated, and still motivates them, to be part of this amazing community?
The Cardano Community Team would also like to thank the Ambassadors for all their continued efforts and participation in sharing their stories with us.
Part 1: Ruslan Soluyanov, Translator for the Russian Language:
1. Tell us a little about yourself. What is your background?
I am a technician-programmer by profession, but during different periods of my life I helped to organize concerts for musicians, selling equipment from my own company, developed logos and corporate identity, programmed and set up computer networks for companies.
(After a big event, instead of sleeping in his hotel room, Ruslan instead fell asleep in the hotel’s corridor after only having slept 5hrs in two days.)
2. How did you get interested and involved with Blockchain/Crypto?
In 2014, my friend told me about Bitcoin and soon after got my first bitcoin wallet. At that time I did not understand what it was exactly, and wasn’t interested in studying it further. At the end of 2015, I learned about other projects and began to follow Ethereum, and I even participated with testing their test-network. Then I learned about exchanges and trading, but again quickly lost interest. Then, I met Cardano in November 2017 and became interested in the project. I am with her everyday and since a couple of months I have become a Cardano Ambassador due to my continued efforts as a translator.
3. Why Cardano?
Cardano has good foundations and better coordination. It’s also more transparently built system of development and implementation. I have not seen such rigor elsewhere. Even the members of the community can understand that the project is on a different level than in other communities.
4. How are you contributing to the Cardano Ecosystem as an Ambassador?
Together with other great Russian community members and Ambassadors (@vantuz-subhuman, @Evgeny_S, @timsahabutdinov & @Fell_x27 (Telegram) ), I help to manage the Cardano Russia community, and translate videos, articles and publish them in Russian magazines about cryptocurrencies. Our Russian community is really wonderful!
5. What is your future vision for the Cardano Ecosystem?
I want Cardano to be present everywhere, that’s how I see the future of the project!
6. What is your personal message to the Cardano community?
We need to explain to all people the people around us, not only traders and programmers, that blockchain is not scary, it’s not about financial fraud or ecological damage. Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are very cool, interesting and transformative new things to explore more.
