As a TRON SR livestreams will play a major role for promoting essential information about TRON blockchain itself or news about the implementation of the world’s first crypto-branded liqueur and the TRON GIATTI project.
8. Meet Up
Through the TRON GIATTI Foundation we will organize entrepreneurial meetups and workshops, act as a project-scout with focus on digitalization/blockchain implementation and build connections within and beyond the TRON community.
9. Community promotion efforts
· Tron meets DON GIATTI:
· If we are voted as SR for the TRON community, we will produce a limited TRON GIATTI liqueur edition as a tribute to the TRON Foundation and its amazing community, fusing the unique design of both brands. This will then be the world’s first crypto-branded liqueur! The new product shall be celebrated accordingly. The bottles can only be bought with crypto currencies. If they are bought with TRX, customers will get a 5% discount.
· Ever since our first investment in TRX we have been looking for answers to our TRON and crypto related questions via social media pages such as Twitter or Reddit. However, especially in the course of our application for the SR elections, we have repeatedly been unable to find the information we were looking for. Therefore, we want to support the TRON community by creating a central and well-structured online hub for all TRON and general basic crypto related information.
· In addition, all regular DON GIATTI bottles will support TRON. The TRON logo will be applied on every bottle and a TRX reward program for the buyer will be implemented.
· In 2013 we established the company and created the two accounts (Facebook and Instagram) where we post relevant information about our product and events about DON GIATTI.
· As TRON SR both accounts will be used to spread the word of cryptocurrency in the spirit industry, party and club scene and to establish new connections relevant for TRON.
· The newly established TRON GIATTI twitter account will be intensively used showing information about TRON and DON GIATTI, creating interaction between both communities and focusing on cryptocurrency topics related to TRON (community giveaways, promotion, special events and much more).
10. Testable nodes
This is our testable node (XXXXXX) — in progress
11. Plans for hardware expansion
We will provide failover scripting as well as Anti-Ddos via AWS Shield, to provide a stable and secure environment for the main node. To backup the server extension environment, we will choose another world region to have a stable setup in case of negative externalities.
· July 2018: We will extend our capabilities with the following:
Adding a second main node with corresponding backup: x1.16xlarge 64 core 1T memory 1T SSD storage (EBS) 25G bandwidth
· August 2018: We will extend our capabilities with the following:
Adding a third main node with corresponding backup: x1.16xlarge 64 core 1T memory 1T SSD storage (EBS) 25G bandwidth
· September 2018: We will extend our capabilities with the following:
Adding a fourth main node with corresponding backup: x1.16xlarge 64 core 1T memory 1T SSD storage (EBS) 25G bandwidth
The dual-system backup will be equivalent to the corresponding specification of the monthly extension plans, as mentioned above.

· 15% reinvested in the DON GIATTI brand (e.g. for a limited TRON GIATTI edition), in collaboration with TRON and its community. Percentage dependent on the market value per TRX (calculated with 0.1 USD/TRX).
· 13% locked away and serves as a long-term investment. Significant surge of market value per TRX expected in the long term.
· 2% set aside for administrative costs (e.g. for legal expenses or team funds).
