In memory and continuation of Vasil Dabov’s life and work

Vasil Stoyanov Dabov

An Artist, Ginkgologist, BC Advisor, Haskell Practitioner, Holonist: “The Sage Who Has Been Planting (Thousands of) Ginkgo trees”

Who is Vasil St. Dabov?

Vasil was a grandfather, father, brother, a pioneer, an entrepreneur in various fields, and an inspiration for many across the world. His passion for spreading Ginkgo Biloba, blockchain technology, and sagely wisdom was unparalleled. He has single-handedly planted more than 10,000 trees, predominantly Ginkgo Biloba, but also Metasequoia, and other endangered species. When asked why he stopped counting exactly how many trees he planted, he responded

After I had planted a few thousand trees, I realized that instead of spending time counting how many trees I had planted, I could use the same time to plant more trees.

Vasil passed away in his apartment in Plovdiv, Bulgaria on December 3, 2021 after a long combat with pulmonary embolism.

What will the Vasil Hard Fork bring?

In combination with parameter adjustments, these features will enhance Cardano’s throughput and optimize the system to accommodate an increasing range of decentralized finance (DeFi) apps, smart contracts, and DEXs.

Trees Vasil planted in public areas.

[…] Just like delegators help verify network transactions through staking, anyone can help tend the trees that Vasil planted. This map lists Vasil’s trees in publicly accessible spaces in Bulgaria - for those who wish to visit them.

The map includes Ginkgo Biloba , Metasequoia Sempervirens & Sequoia trees in Plovdiv & Sofia. This watering season is almost over [Sep 22, 2022], but if you’ll be in Bulgaria next summer, stay tuned for interactive ways to use this map to help care for Vasil’s trees and pay homage to his legacy.
