Sokol Network Creation Date Table
#3 — POA Network Validator Candidates
Sokol Network Creation Date
This is great Alex. Some minor edits:
Change Vote type to voting protocol
Master of Ceremony under vote type to “Initial Ceremony” to match validator wiki
This looks like core validators are only on core when they should be both core & sokol - may want to make clear that distinction
Roman was selected through Initial Ceremony while Marat was selected through governance
Angeleen is also a sokol validator as of May 19
Feel free to ping me if you have any other questions.
Thank you, Alexander
I’ve just pinned the topic. Other validators are very welcome to suggest changes and edits
Please add links to introductions to names of validators so we could jump to their profiles. - to TABLE2
Please sort candidates by
date of introduction old first (DESC) - to TABLE2
Please add column
date of introduction to TABLE1
Please add column No to TABLE2

I focus on and invest in Blockchain technologies because of their potential to economically empower individuals. Trusted networks can create a strong incentive for individuals to transact directly. Like Amazon or EBay, blockchains will improve our lives, but first they need a foundation.
I am excited about Notarycoin because it provides several solutions at once. Notary is an important function in our lives, and embedding it on the blockchain improves the process, reliability, and enforcability…
Vermont, USA is known for it’s forward thinking: A leader in green energy, civil rights, organic foods, just to name a few. Even so, I was surprised to learn that Vermont is leading the way in blockchain related law.
In May of 2016 Vermont passed a bill which stated that a document timestamped on a blockchain “shall be considered a record of regularly conducted business” when considered against the state’s rules of evidence. Basically anything notarized on the blockchain is admissible in court. …
I am excited about this project. This is a great way to push the regulatory system to acknowledge and adapt to this quickly evolving world.
My background is in finance, technology, and business. I enjoy working with forward thinkers, and helping people discover new tools or opportunities.
I look forward to working with this community.
Greetings all- I am an attorney located in Queens, NY and my son introduced me to Blockchain technology. I am proud to be a part of this digital revolution and look forward to seeing how we can make the world operate more efficiently.
I am excited, and hope to help the Oracle network progress in any way I can.

I want to support the Oracles network because its Proof of Authority (POA) consensus system provides a good alternative and complement to Proof of Work (POW) systems and enables bloc…

Dear POA community, I am dedicated to the advancement of blockchain technology. To that end, I would like to become a validator on the POA network. I am currently a California attorney, and I plan on obtaining my notary license to participate as a validator in the network. In the past, I have worked with many different cryptocurrency related projects. I am interested in maintaining the POA network so that businesses have a great blockchain option where they can safely record transactions.
Let me know if you see anything else
Great work on this information! I am Stephen Arsenault btw.
Thanks man. I have to credit Igor though. His idea.
Igor is filled with great ideas, somebody can only work on so much at once though!
Alex, a slight correction.
I’ve been active with the project for a year now, per this initial post Walter Karshat, Notary Wannabe
A notary since Sept, participated in the initial testnet on Azure back in Aug.
Would not want an impression that I was ushered onto Sokol in 6 days.
Great job organizing all the information!
Thanks for the heads up, Walter. I remember seeing your original post, but must of lost track of it during prep. Corrected to 2017-05-22.
Update: I’ve been using the miner creation date from the Core/Sokol Validators DApp for ‘Date Added’
if a validator applied before creation of Sokol network we should count from the date of creation of Sokol, Nov 18 2017
let’s add titles to all three tables
