I am very much looking forward to Fleming and the beginning of the Gathering Storm - Alpha 3 campaign!

I am very grateful to the whole @MaidSafe team for this “ticket” and this crazy trip to the future of the internet! :boxing_glove: :rocket::boxing_glove:


What to say @Dimitar?! Thank you for the incredible dedication you have, for such a long time, every week, week in week out as we say. I don’t know how you do it.

You inspire us all, including I expect the team at Maidsafe. I believe that you are not only benefitting the project but the people of Bulgaria by giving many their the chance to benefit from this project through early adoption.



Happy Birthday Boots on the ground!

Its incredible watching your dedication to the project over this past year. I know the team internally are working hard to deliver, and seeing how you, and others, from the community support the project shows how much of a community project it is. Which is how it should be.
Amazing work @Dimitar
Onwards to Fleming and Launch!!!


@Dimitar I completely echo @happybeing’s and @Nadia’s thoughts on this. Your efforts have been amazing over the year and speaking as someone within the MS team, they absolutely have been, and continue to be, inspirational to us all. It’s not simply the fact that you’ve gone out there and actually done something (which deserves all the praise in the world: anyone can speak a good game, far far fewer can ever actually put it into action). It’s the fact that you continue to go out, consistently, week in week out - regardless of any praise, criticism, comments etc. When the people of Bulgaria finally discover the SAFE Network en masse (and at this rate, with your dedication, I have absolutely no doubt that you’ll ultimately get round every single one of them :wink: ), you will be a massive part of the reason behind that.

Thanks for the inspirational work. It’s the community that makes or breaks this project - and you’re blazing the trail. We all owe you :clap: :raised_hands: :bowing_man:


Wow! Super impressive work there! You are beyond a credit to the community and thanks for all your hard work!
