Due to my emotional, economic and health stability I want to make a small release of responsibility or warning. My spirit and desire is to help ensure and improve the ecosystem. The problem is that a person who is begging for medical help, financial help and help to have room for decision and freedom regarding decisions. You can very easily commit yourself and then not have the minimum requirements to help at all. In this case my first concern is not to disappoint myself and not disappoint anyone.
In the case of yesterday and the day before yesterday I spent two nights without being able to sleep. I am giving up expecting anything from people and material things. I held polkadot and chose astar because of the name, the color that gave me confidence and I really couldn’t study much more in depth what and who astar is or are or we are. Today I’m a little better but I don’t even feel like feeling like it. Depression is overcoming me and I dream of distancing myself from society and its system capable of sinking you and not letting you refloat when I have faith that from the depths the cosmos can be scaled and that I do not need to post forums to be heard in my prayers. This is my personal opinion and based on my experience. My last wish is to cause any vacancy or loss to the ecosystem. But as I say, I can’t find a doctor, I can’t find a job and I don’t have a living space to face any commitment. I feel forgotten and abandoned praying in my room and I have given up or am giving up on seeking help in the traditional social way because it will hurt me more than help me. I am de-escalating and unlinking social networks and I am trying to disappear. I have nowhere to go and with the life I have I don’t expect anything from anything or anyone or get anything. I know that this post is demotivating and may be sad but I want to put you on alert so as not to be disappointed later.
If at some point I can lift a finger and help myself and everyone, don’t hesitate. What I do ask is that you do not wait for this movement because perhaps at that moment I will be crying in bed or with my head covered without strength imprisoned in this asphalt prison that promises prosperity and only the mayor and his four favorites prosper.
To the extent that I obtain extraction and that my reality changes, my mood will improve.
An antidepressant will never do it when I have absolutely determined the problem and I have already said it. Thank you very much and sorry. Today I can’t continue because I can’t start. I’m trying to deploy a collateral node or something useful. That will be when I feel better. If I can get out of this loss. I’m very disappointed. You have not done me any harm but I do not blame anyone in this medium. I blame myself for not fighting for a job and my freedom. It happens that I don’t understand that fighting for those things isn’t immoral and they haven’t taken anything from me, but there are too many parked vehicles and not enough fruit trees. Maybe that’s my mission. Come see with my eyes what we are subjected to.

Do you have any idea how to proceed with the Hackhaton and how to onboard new devs?

Excellent question, @pitcoin777!

Mainly, I will be visiting this Monday and Tuesday three of the universities that will be participating in the hackathon. I will be teaching three pretty precise topics on blockchain infrastructure, application creation and tools, all using Astar as the main network.

It is important to keep in mind that the students who will participate in the hackathon, are pursuing careers at the end of technology: software engineering, programming and more.

In addition to this, the organizers of ETH Cinco de Mayo have already been visiting these universities providing them with workshops on the basics of blockchain.

Finally, there has been information on national television and press channels:

This event will be a really crazy! :sweat_smile:

Ongoing event report!

We have successfully concluded the event! Eight projects have applied to be winners of our tracks, of which we have selected six for their outstanding ideas.

As agreed, the six winning projects of our tracks will receive only 30% of the funds earned; the remainder will be delivered once they have been deployed on our Astar zkEVM mainnet.

I am currently preparing the final report to provide transparency about the work done. In the meantime, here are some photos and information:

Soon I’ll upload the photos with Astar hackers :sunglasses:
