[AIT2] Emanuel Validator (+ Full Node)

Hi everyone!

My name is Emanuel. I’m into crypto since 2015. I’ve been working on several project on the side and now part time. I’m originally Italian but I’ve been living in Silicon Valley for 10 year working on several companies including Facebook. My engineering knowledge is pretty broad from Android development to backend and Cloud Native Infra. I’ve actively running validators for ETH2, ICP and Cartesi.
