Having come from a telecommunications engineering background, I gravitated towards Nexus in 2017. The innovative and unrelenting approach applied by the core development team in building the Nexus protocol, coupled with the amazing ethos displayed by the Nexus community has motivated me greatly to become more involved and contribute to the project in any way possible. I have been an active member on the various community channels, contributed to content creation and look forward to raising further awareness of the Nexus vision. With many years of experience in telecommunications engineering, strategic asset management, project and programme management, I hope to utilize this skillset to continually contribute towards Nexus.
Mr. Anderson is an incessantly curious security connoisseur. His interest in security initiated with the military police, then locksmithing and ultimately traversed into IT security operations, engineering, forensics, architecture and management overseeing global infrastructure and government services. In 2010 he was the lead author for Seven Deadliest USB Attacks, a seven part book series of technical education material published by Elsevier. A Certified Internet Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification was obtained and remains active. He found Bitcoin in 2011 however did not fully understand the fundamentals of blockchain decentralization until he encountered Nexus in 2016.
The impact that new technologies such as a truly decentralized blockchain could have on existing systems, is what fascinates me the most. I discovered Nexus in 2017, and was especially attracted by the prospect of a truly decentralized internet. The awesome Nexus team and their ‘no comprises’ approach - to do it the right way, instead of going the easy and wrong route, is why I started to help and support Nexus' Vision. I am active in all community channels for all questions, and my technical background helps me support the community with wallet problems. Due to my work in power engineering and energy economics, I am particularly interested in the impact of blockchain on the wholesale markets, energy trading, and the possibility of shared renewable assets.
April has been actively involved in the Nexus community since 2017. True to the name of Nexus, it was the connections of the many that brought her to the community and she became a contributor to support its vision, values and innovations. Her interests in economics, technology, investments and compliance provided meaningful contributions to co-writing content. April’s experience and constant research helped define terminology, provide context and varying perspectives which support Nexus’ solutions.
My background is in education and leadership development, and I’m thrilled to be able to share my experiences to support the growth of our Nexus community. I take great pride in the opportunity to work with such talented, caring, & compassionate individuals dedicated to building the foundation of a decentralized future. I remember when I was first inspired by the thought of a crypto revolution. To this day, I truly believe that blockchain technology will prove to be the key to unlocking trust in politics, simplicity in transactions, & financial independence throughout the world. The Nexus team, tech, and community are working to make this a reality, and that’s why I’m here. Sigchains open the door to mainstream adoption. The TAO framework provides ease of use & on chain scaling. But more importantly, the Nexus vision revolves around building trust, connectivity, and promoting responsible values to create the world we deserve.
I first gained crypto experience helping grow governance at MakerDao. I now am focused on bringing financial applications to Nexus as well as organizations focused on the integration and communication of knowledge.
April graduated from the Academy of Art University with a BA in Traditional Illustration. While in college she started doing graphic designs for various companies and websites. In January of 2015 April discovered the emerging world of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies and obsession quickly took over. It was August of 2016 that she found Nexus and immediately knew she wanted to become more involved. She created a merchandise and apparel shop for Nexus where products continue to ship around the world. She currently works with the team doing NexusOfficial and NXSCommunity Twitter graphics, and is starting to create some website imagery also. April hopes that her graphic efforts will help bring awareness and education to Nexus in the present and consistently in the future.
Having completed formal education in Electrical Engineering was drawn towards Bitcoin in early 2017. Liked the concept and ethos, took a deep dive which increased awareness about money and economics and the threat of emerging technologies whose convergence is pushing us further into the fully centralised digital realm. I am a staunch believer that blockchain will be the foundation of our digital future and the decisions we make today will shape our future. Having delved into blockchain projects to find the one which has the vision and ideology of Sathoshi, and also decentralize and democratize money, economics, internet, emerging technologies to give people back the power, led me to Nexus and there has been no looking back. Using this opportunity to spread Nexus and its innovative technology to the masses.
