Thanks to Steem now I am in Luxembourg

in #luxembourg2 years ago


Yes, dear readers, at this moment I am in Luxembourg, employed by Fujitsu, to work in the European Commission on a blockchain project (EFTG) that is closely related to Steem! Amazing!

I can say that publishing and doing developments in Steem has been a great decision in my life, since we are seeing how everything related to Blockchain is growing at an amazing rate and companies discover the potential behind it to solve many of their problems.

It was a big surprise to me when @sorin.cristescu, in April 2018, seeing my developments and publications, contacted me to offer to work with him and his Blockchain team (BLKCC) at the European Commission. A work that really interests me a lot, although not easy to get by the process that entails. Normally, the European Commission does not hire people directly but rather grants the development of projects to companies or consortiums through public tenders. And therefore, a large part of the workers within the Commission are external, coming from different companies.

For a company, the process of hiring someone from abroad is not an easy task. For this, a complex process of obtaining a visa and work permit must be done within the European Union. In this regard, thanks to @sorin.cristescu and Jerome Gastaldi (@jeromeg), Fujitsu Luxembourg has decided to take this step, even making an initial economic contribution that has been very helpful in establishing myself here in Luxembourg with my wife and children.

Luxembourg is a great country, with an excellent quality of life. Despite being small, it is a multicultural site where people from all over the world converge. I am very motivated by everything I will learn here, and also by the fact that I continue to deepen the Steem code and adapt it to the needs of the EFTG project. I hope that I can contribute a lot to the team and take this project forward, and at the same time continue contributing to the Steem blockchain.

Many thanks to Sorin, Jerome, Fujitsu and everyone who in one way or another helped make this possible. Also thanks to all the BLKCC team for their great reception.


Glad to have you here, I'm confident your work, together with the team's work, will leave a mark on the complex "consensus building" processes that are at the core of the European project.

I'm excited thinking that the steem blockchain is helping build the Europe of tomorrow!

Your a good man Sorin.

EC is shit! We will remember you when they regulate against cryptocurrencies.

The pictures in this post are great, however.

Que buena historia... ¡Felicidades!

Congratulations to you and Sorin(@sorincristescu) for the whole thing! Wish you a great time in Luxembourg with your family and good luck to both of you in your work! Really a nice story to read about on Steemit.

Dear @jga

Are you still in Luxembourg? Hope this place is treating you well.

Are you still visiting Steemit sometimes? I would like to get in touch with you if you don't mind.

Would you be kind and tell me what language did you use to create your site?


hi @crypto.piotr. Yes, you can contact me here, or in discord #jga0699.
In check votes I use javascript and jquery, and the steem-js library to interact with the blockchain. But in my recent contributions I use vue-js instead of jquery.

Dear @jga

Thank you for your previous comment. I will try to add you on Discord (I'm still learning how to use this tool).

I NEED YOUR HELP :) Nothing serious really. But I still hope you can spare few minutes of your time :)

I found out about great contest where winning community can receive a year's delegation worth of 20k SP!

I realized that receiving such a delegation could help greatly to grow our community. After all I'm upvoting each valuable comment. On top of that, I'm doing my best to promote quality content published by other authors and again: I like to reward those who engage with those authors.

I know that it's probably a long shot and most likely our community won't stand a chance in this contest. But I love being the underdog! Let's give them a fair fight :)

Which brings me to my next question, I was wondering if I could count on your support? At this stage I would only need to ask you to comment this post and suggest myself for the contest. Perhaps you could also make another suggestion: @ help.venezuela (this is run by my dear friend @ achim03).

This is just a first round attempt. I hope we can make it to second round hahha :) Naturally I would appreciate if you could ask your friends to help with our little "quest" :)

Let me know what you think? Perhaps you can also share some advises and hopefully we can "do little bit of brainstorming". Would be awesome to win :)


Mixed feelings about that. Obviously congratulations, because it speaks to your skills and the quality of your work. Just make sure you don’t sell your soul for a pocketful of euros. The EU commission is a politburo in sheep’s clothing. Meanwhile enjoy all that Luxembourg has to offer.

Friend. as I always tell him. honor to whom honor is due. and you are worthy of that. for all his knowledge is that he arrived and went even further.
It's nice to know that I know him.

That makes me very happy to hear from you and your family.
Blessings for your family.

From my Venezuela I send you a big hug very fraternal ... And I hope it continues to triumph.
