Hi, Pelagus here.
I am a retired IT professional from the Netherlands, currently living in SE-Asia.
In 2011 I got intrigued by bitcoin and invested a small amount of money in it. After the 2013 price boom and subsequent Mt.Gox trouble I decided it would be wise to diversify. Since then I have been holding several different crypto currencies and am always on the look-out for new developments in the crypto space.
Apart from buying and holding (and occasionally selling) currencies I’d be interested to get a little more actively involved and/or contributing in different ways to the developments - without it becoming a day task; after all, I am happily retired.
When I read about MaidSafe in Paul Vigna’s & Michael J Casey’s book “cryptocurrency” I came here to have a look. I’ll be following the developments with interest and where possible looking to participate, probably by contributing computer resources, as well as perhaps, some alpha/beta testing.
