My name is Boudali Imed, yani is an excellent and old friend, he asked me to help him with the project, he is a developer and required someone with experience in finance, management and development. this is why i invited him in my home, in Algeria. Actually we are in my development house where we have all the required equipements to work.
I always worked alone in my development projects as i am perfectionist, i never developed for someone except to help him. There is a single person who supports working with me because i am very nervous and sometimes i can hurt the feelings of my mate when i am not satisfied by what he is doing.
At the begining i was just a supporter, in the very begining it was a multiwallet with an exchange like JAXX and EXODUS, after discussions with Yani and Ton, we went to a conclusion where we decided to create two tokens to ensure the project stays legal.
Regarding the validator, Yani had a lot of options regarding its integration, but each one had her own flaws, it is only at this moment where i decided to create the validator because there was too much flaws in the actual systems.
Personally i wasn't aware of SafeNet, that's why i had a look at all the documentations and made some tests. This is where i got the idea about the validator's design, what could it do, and how could it be used with the plugins. I didn't wanted NVO to be a common wallet like the QT versions or the JAXX COPAY EXODUS wallets, who uses technologies soon to be deprecated.
I decided to bring an idea with a plan who will live for a long time, by inspiring of what is actually existing, Bitcoin and of the way it works, i stayed long enough in the irc channels of bitcoin core devs to find what is the best policy to bring a project to life, and not to bind its lifetime to a new wallet provided by a competitor. I wanted to give it the lifetime of bitcoin.
Look at bitcoin today, there are so many blockchains and innovations, but what ever they are, Bitcoin is still on top. Today the Altcoins are complementary to Bitcoin, that's why NVO will be complementary to Cryptocurrencies by exploiting their ressources. That's why the Validator couldn't be a single block placed in single location, this is why it will be scatered into several locations. Stored into the safeNetwork, dialoging using namecoin or nexus encryption, using the safelauncher ...
After listening to my idead, yani allowed me to work on the Validator, that's i made its specifications and that i am continiously improving it.
Ton won't convince you regarding development, however, he is one of the master pieces of the project, as he will promote the project in a very efficient manner at the production release, and regarding the team, he is always helping us by providing what ever we need regarding the development.
I do not know if he did it express or not, but he put us in contact with you, and coinpayments, our first plugin will be for them, he made sure that this project is known by a larger public. ..
He is very listening to the developers and receptive to our ideas, a CEO can handle everything, he does not need to have specific technical knowledge. It is upon us that the burden of idea and innovation comes back.
I have seen many other CEOs in other fields, the excellent CEO always forward their developers, and that's what Ton did. And on this point, he has all my respect.
At first we were fighting 4-5 times a day, now we have learned to work in harmony and to know the skills of each and to work in a coordinated way within the team.
