Reward Cut: 0.18% (Set 11-Apr-19)
Price: 1.49 GWEI
I wanted to introduce myself to the community for what I can offer, why I’m doing this and where I have been.
As the name suggest I’m a professional engineer with full life cycle development for multiple platforms. I have been heavily vested in video work flows since 2010 when I helped take a product for video transmit, capture and playback and turn it into a service that the original company never saw coming by adding a complete RESTful API. The releasing company (AMX) even nick named the project after me because of had been accomplished. From that point forward I knew being an engineer that understood video on network transports would be key.
I have released commercial products that performed conversion of native RTSP streams to create SIP dialable end-point for Video Teleconferencing. To ensure I understood the networking aspects that went along with the code I completed by Cisco CCNA in 2013 which I use actively to configure route/switch to support both unicast and multicast video workflows.
Crypto-currency has been a passion since I found it in 2015, so I asked myself why did I miss the early years of crypto-currency and it turns out I was busy having my first child followed by my second only a couple of years later. That did not stop me from contributing to platforms though, I published numerous patches to githubs mostly for a coin named Burst that was a JAVA based “proof-of-capacity”.
Lets talk about the real issue now that you know about me. Why delegate/bond to my transcoder? First the fee is extremely low at only 0.2%, one of the lowest within the market place. The machine running the node is a dedicated multi-GPU machine running quad AMD RX-470s 8gb editions. In the three weeks the node has been running it has not missed a single reward claim. I have pushed the price per segment to the very bottom for transcoding to ensure we can get work and collect benchmarks.
Which leads to an interesting article I read. The processor map of a standard GPU in theory can mine traditional crypto-currencies performing proof-of-work and transcode video with little or no impact to the other service. We aim to prove if this is viable and provide supporting documentation to the community once complete. I am actively working with a member of the LP development team who I have provided full root access to the node therefore ensuring it is optimally configured and always up to date. I trust this individual with everything I have to include allowing access to my Eth private keys.
If you want to support growth of the platform by forging new ground please consider delegating stake.
