Ambassador Stories, Journal #21: Gabor & Tuan
Welcome to the 21st journal of the “Ambassador Stories” series!
New stories will be shared with you, whenever new ambassadors join our ranks and provide their stories.
You’ll be able to enjoy the various, unique stories of our Cardano Community Ambassadors: what motivated, and still motivates them, to be part of this amazing and wonderful 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: Gabor, Ambassador Content Creator
Gabor has been active since the early days of the Cardano project and its community. He’s been busy developing a useful app some of you may know about: Pegasus Stake Pool App! During his activities of the Shelley ITN, he started contributing by providing useful tools to the end users to keep track and answer basic questions about stake pools via the app. We are extremely fortunate to have you active in our community, providing that value! Thank you for your time and effort. Keep us updated and we hope to hear and see more from you in the coming time.
(Gabor just does it! )
1) Tell us a little about yourself. What is your background?
I am 32 and have been a professional software developer for the last 10 years. I’m originally from Hungary, but moved to London, UK at the age of 20. I have a 4 year old son with whom I like to spend my time. I am very interested in maths and physics (on a hobby level) and I used to take martial arts lessons (wing chun).
2) How did you get interested and involved with Blockchain/Crypto?
I’ve started looking into what crypto is in 2017 and watched the famous white board video from Charles when it came out. I was fascinated by Charles’ vision and by the extraordinary people working on the project. Since then I’ve been closely following every aspect of the project, watching every video and reading every blog post by the three entities.
3) Why Cardano?
As a programmer myself, I knew that if anything close to a new financial system were to be implemented, it can only be done with rigorous research and formally verified code. No other projects had similar principles in the cryptocurrency space at the time.
4) How are you contributing to the Cardano Ecosystem as an Ambassador?
Currently creator of the Pegasus Tool mobile app which is loved by many. I’m also contributing on Telegram to help other pool operators. I am also part of a private test group to test the early features of the cardano-node that we’ll be using for mainnet. In the future I plan to keep adding functionality to the mobile app and website and will create more content covering Cardano from a technology point of view.
5) What is your future vision for the Cardano Ecosystem?
Cardano is to serve as an efficient and fair financial operating system for the world.*
6 ) What is your personal message to the Cardano community?
Stay true to the original vision of the project, be positive and kind to each other and contribute to the ecosystem with whatever you do best. Everyone is good at something!
Don’t forget to like, follow, share Gabor’s hard work! He can be followed on the Cardano Forum, via Twitter, or his own website.
