Please introduce yourself so our audience can learn more about you and your team
Hey my name is Shea, but I go by CryptoStache or just ‘Stache here in the wild world of cryptocurrency. I am an educator and content creator and my focus in crypto is adoption and education in the space.
There is a lot of amazing things going on in the blockchain space, but so few really can wrap their heads around it all, so I produce educational content that is easy to understand and always features a mustache!
While I love crypto, my main business is running a small web development firm called Long Beach Web Design and we are celebrating 10 years in business this year!
When and why did you first get into Crypto? And why now IOST?
I first got into crypto towards the end of 2013. I had seen it a few times before but had not really dove into how it worked until this time and that is when the light blub lit up.
Being a tech guy, I now realized how revolutionary this technology could be for just about every aspect of human life, so I bought my first Bitcoin.
Being in the game for so long, I have started to keep tabs on up and coming projects and IOST entered my radar the beginning of 2019.
I think they solve a lot of problems we are seeing with other dApp development platforms that will hopefully allow IOST to be a solid enterprise solution.
How did you find the process of setting up as a node candidate on IOST?
So far, setting up a node is not too hard, but I think there is still room for some improvement. The great thing is though, the community and devs are very open to feedback and changes.
How do you plan to help contribute and grow the IOST ecosystem?
I will be creating educational and informational content around IOST over the next few months to help spread the word about the various aspects of the ecosystem along with major successes in the project.
What strengths do you bring to the IOST ecosystem?
My greatest strengths that I bring to the table for IOST is the fact that I can relay complex information about a project to beginners in a way that they can truly understand.
Adoption and community are key and the more people understand the more they get involved.
Anything else you would like to add to this interview?
So far, I have nothing but a great experience being a part of the IOST community and I have not felt that way about very many projects or coins.
I am a big believer in building community and I look forward to helping the community grow in any way that I can.
Many Thanks to Shea from IOST Stache for taking time out to do this interview.
