Community helpers

JOHNP

Slack Moderator

I stumbled across the Syscoin project not long after the Moolah incident and decided to do some more research into the project. The more I looked the more I was impressed by the project and the dedication and persistence of the team; on that basis I decided to invest. I feel that if you believe in something then you should make yourself useful and my volunteer role within the community is to help and assist other users, as well as provoking the question, “What have I done today to help the project?”
