Today we’re focusing the spotlight on a new Ethereum based project. Ether-1 is working on creating a decentralized content delivery network which will operate using the project’s master and service nodes. James Reilly from Ether-1 was kind enough to donate some of his time and answer some questions to help us get to know the face behind the projects.
Without further hesitation, let’s dive into a few questions.
How did you get started with digital currency?
I first got involved in digital currency back in the early days of Ethereum as a hobbyist miner which eventually grew to a small warehouse full of rigs. Ethereum was my first crypto love as I was fascinated with the idea of decentralized applications. I’ve always been a big believer in a fully decentralized, democratized society so digital currency and decentralized applications were always a natural fit.
Why should the community adopt your coin, what attracts users to your coin?
This is always a tough question to answer as there are so many digital currencies out there to choose from but I’ve always been drawn to projects with teams who dream big and aren’t only trying to sell a coin for profit. From the start, our team has had this idealistic dream of an end-to-end decentralized content delivery system in which our Masternode/Service Node network will operate upon; thus opening up a whole range of development opportunities for a completely self-sustaining, decentralized economy. Ether-1 is not just a digital currency, it is a decentralized digital society.
What keeps you enthusiastic about your project?
If you look at how our global economy has evolved over the past few years it is very difficult to not want to take back control and decentralize everything. With all of the centralized data breaches and economic scandals we constantly hear about, it’s hard to believe most people wouldn’t want to pursue a decentralized, fully democratized society This lofty goal of a decentralized utopia make it very easy to be excited to forge on day in and day out!
If you could share one piece of advice to someone joining the cryptocurrency industry, what would it be?
Research and learn as much as you can! Blockchain technology and decentralization is fascinating in its simplicity and absolutely is the future! The applications are endless so researching projects and finding a niche that matches your personality is a great place to start. Just remember, look beyond the currency; sure, trading and profiting is fun and profitable for us all but the real value lies in the application of decentralization to our daily lives!
What is your favorite hobby (other than cryptocurrency)?
I spend most of my free time with my daughter and we both love the outdoors! I am lucky enough to live in California so the weather is almost always perfect to find something exciting to do outside!
