Lonestar -Ticker LSSP
The interesting thing about talking to people in Cardano is that everyone's journey is different. Ernie, the operator of Lonestar stake pool, was building computer hardware
for family and friends, he couldn't find any video cards and was informed that all of the video cards were being bought up to mine crypto. This intrigued him so he experimented with mining but quickly was unimpressed due to the energy required. He still liked the cryptocurrency concept and started looking into alternatives, where he found Cardano. From there, he began watching YouTube videos and exploring the Cardano ecosystem. He built a relay and block producer in December and has been expanding his knowledge ever since. To that end, Ernie has already joined the xSPO and Freeloaderz crew.
Ernie lives in the Dallas Ft. Worth area and is the manager of a large group of airline mechanics. His daughter, who is studying marketing at Indiana University, will be helping with promotion and his son is learning some of the technical aspects of running a stake pool. He really enjoys spending his evenings learning about the Cardano community and running a stake pool as a family project. Ernie is also a veteran of the US Navy. As such he supports veterans' causes, and he will donate to the Wounded Warrior Project once the pool starts minting blocks.
Wounded Warrior Project supports veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury on or after September 11, 2001. This isn't a charity - it's a community of people who are committed to overcoming injury and using their experiences to help others recover and find purpose in their post military lives. They understand that every situation is unique and offer resources and services on an individual basis. You are not a number here. Rather you are part of a team that is working to build a better future.
Texas is a place for big, bold dreams. Lonestar stake pool, while just beginning, has a bright future and a bold dream - to help others find financial freedom in Cardano while helping Wounded Warriors find a new purpose. This pool has a bright future and won't stay small for long.
