Hey everyone, my name’s Ryan and I’ve been following Vite since early 2018. I participated in several of the community quizzes and have watched many of Richard’s AMA’s. I’ll be honest, at first I was just after free Vite tokens. But after learning more about the project I became a true supporter! I was a proud member of team Vite Elite of the Vite Fan Club and I converted my Vite erc20 to testnet as soon as I could.
The testnet experience for me has been pretty awesome so far. Converting my tokens was easy since I followed the guide. I’m sure it is even easier now that the function has been added directly to the Vite wallet. Upon conversion to testnet, I immediately began voting for one of the Vite SBPs and earning more Vite tokens every single day by doing so. I highly recommend everyone else to do the same, as it is a great (and easy) way to passively increase your Vite holdings. You can just set it and forget it! As far as I know, rewards are currently given for voting for any of the 5 official Vite SBPs or for the SwissVite SBP. I have been impressed with the speed of transactions and the user interface of the block explorer and the wallet. The Vite team knows what they’re doing and is constantly pumping out new developments. I also like how receptive they are to community feedback. They clearly realize how important community is in building a great project.
I also began running a full node on the first day that it went live and have earned many more Vite tokens by doing so. Again, I would encourage everyone else to do the same, as it is a great way to passively earn more Vite and it’s also your way of helping to build out the network. Plus you don’t even need any Vite to participate! I have encountered a slight hiccup a few days ago in running my node, but I have no doubt that the Vite devs will have a solution for the syncing problem I have encountered in a very timely manner. That’s just what they do. I’d also like to give a shout out to Plasmo for his contribution to the Vite ecosystem and for being a massive help to me while trying to navigate some of the more tech focused features of the testnet.
If the testnet is this great, I can’t wait to see what mainnet what looks like. Hats off to the Vite team and their constant improvements. I’m also looking forward to more applications for the Vite token as well as any new partnerships that the team is currently working on. Switch over your erc20s, start voting, run a node, contribute to the forum, ask questions, tell your friends and let’s all help to create something cool!
