"The measure of who we are, is what we do with what we have"

  1. Community Manager - Simone Founded the first IoTeX unofficial Local community


    I founded @IoTeXGroupIT, the first IoTeX Local Telegram Group after the official English, Russian and Korean communities. Italy has a small crypto community yet, despite IoTeX being a completey unknown project, I could quickly grow the community to the size of other blockchain Italian groups like ZCash, NEM and others. I provided an accurate Italian translation of the IoTeX Whitepaper , IoTeX official website Explorer and Web Wallet .

  2. IoTeX Meetup - First Local IoTeX Meetup in Rome


    In July 2018 Larry Pang, BD @ IoTeX, came to Italy and I took the opportunity to meet him in person and organise to first local IoTeX meetup, which took place in Rome (Italy) on July 13rd, 2018. That was an exciting experience, and a great pleasure to meet Larry! One member could make a video of the event (first 10 minutes are in Italian, the rest is in English), though the audio is low quality you can watch it on YouTube!

  3. Brand Ambassador - Simone is selected as a IoTeX Brand Ambassador


    On July 24, for the effort I devoted to the project, I was selected together with few other early supporters to be included in the IoTeX Brand Ambassadors Program. IoTeX Contributors Join the BA Program!

  4. Video Series- IoTeX Explained


    As more people got interested in IoTeX, more and more technical questions were being asked in the official groups: I decided to start a series of three videos on YouTube that would explain, by means of simple animations, the basics of IoTeX blockchain architecture. Subchains Roll DPoS Privacy

  5. Full Node Testing- Testing full node early releases


    On November 30th 2018 IoTeX accomplished a great milestone with the release of the "Open Testnet Phase I": now users could run their own node and give life to the first really decentralized IoTeX Network. Waiting for this moment for a long time, I configured and run a full node of the testnet, testing many configurations both on Mac and Linux, on a cloud server and in a local lan. My work also led the team to discover and fix some bugs and, eventually I made a tutorial video where I shared my experience with the community and helped many people getting started wit running the full node.

  6. IoTeXLab Website Launch


    On February 1st I started the IoTeXLab project: a place where people could learn about IoTeX Blockchain, and find useful tools. On the launch of the website I published an online Rewards Calculator officially adopted by the IoTeX Team as a reference for those who wanted to candidate as Delegate Node in the IoTeX Network. Few days later, I released a Voting, Staking & Rewards tool to help voters estimate possible ROIs from voting for delegates and staking tokens in the IoTeX network
