Introduction ‘thefoundry’, tk0n, yokoama!


The Foundry is an active delegate for Ark and KAPU. We want to replicate our success for these blockchain projects also in Persona. 

We want to dedicate our time to attract people who don’t own a single Persona and maybe haven’t even heard of Persona yet, to get their first Persona! 1% of the PRS coming from forging will be set aside. From that we will give 10 PRS to every person new to PRS and voting for the first time. We will provide support in setting everything up if needed so they can stake and giving the 10 PRS is a gesture from our side to also cover voting costs, fees etc. for first time PRS investors. We will actively spend our time approaching people, setting up meet ups, and also make ourselves available for them to reach out to us. We’ll have a solid vetting procedure to make sure we are really getting people who are new to Persona so that we are sure we are growing our community.

We are ‘yokoama’ (Samuel Zwaan) and ‘tk0n’ (Nico Engelhardt). Sam studied in The Netherlands (Utrecht) and the US (Georgia Tech) and is currently a Technical Product Manager at eBay. As such he is great at structuring, planning, organizing and keeping things on track. Besides this Sam is also active in a variety of DPOS projects such as Ark and KAPU, building out the community through setting up meet ups and working for the community fund. 

Nico is born in Germany and he is working as a System Engineer for a german telephone and communications company. He is a longtime “veteran” and has been working in the streaming media and internet business for over 20 years.

High level proposal:

  • 1% of funds go towards attracting people new to Persona

  • 85% payout rate

  • Rest towards delegate costs and development projects

Planned Contributions to the Persona

1. New to Persona bonus

2. Organizing Meet Ups

3. Development Projects

The sign up bonus:

Part of our proposal is to use 1% of the pool rewards towards an incentive to attract new Persona members whilst at the same time promoting Persona. The idea is that 1% per month is used to fund people new to Persona to get voting. We would offer 10 free PRS to people who haven't voted yet. 

To avoid fraud and at the same time promote PRS we will have a vetting process:

  1. The new member will have to join the PRS telegram channel https://t.me/personablockchain
  2. The new member will initiate into a conversation with yokoama (can PM him as well once you have joined)
  3. New member needs to fill in this form: https://goo.gl/forms/rkIArNb9Myr2Wg922 

As you can read, that is quite a time investment on our side, which we are willing to make to avoid fraud, and for the benefit of Persona.

If there is lots of demand, we will consider lowering the incentive to accommodate more people. If there is not enough demand, we will increase the incentive. Besides this we will also make regular reports on our efforts (at minimum on a monthly basis) to make transparent the progress around attracting new members and how the funds are being used.
We will of course also actively promote that this option exist to new members.


Pool reward sharing - 85%
Additional Rewards: New buyer sign up bonus (10 PRS, we create a waitlist for pay out so we can add members at any time!)
Pool site: http://thefoundry.world-domination.org/blog/
Twitter: https://twitter.com/ark_thefoundry (we will also post PRS news here)
Payments interval: daily (1 PRS minimum, every 24 hours)

Ending Statement

We are dedicated to delivering a high pay out and at the same time very practically growing the Persona community. We hope you understand they time and dedication we are putting into this by vetting as many people as we can every month and reporting on this but we believe this is great way of growing Persona and promoting it. By voting for us you are supporting this as well!
