Short personal pitch
Hyperledger is a dream project that brings together very diverse people and projects united by a single aim: deliver the best blockchain technologies to the enterprise world. The number of challenges that need to be solved is exceptional and this requires bright minds willing to use lateral thinking and run the extra miles. I want to be elected as a member of Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee to help the Committee to foster the Hyperledger ecosystem, to push stronger on interoperability of all the platforms available in Hyperledger, to attract the best minds out there, and to put security first. I'm confident to have skills and passion to serve the Committee at best.
