[Collator Applicant Introduction] Polkadotters

Hello Centrifuge community,

Polkadotters here!:heart: Maybe you know us by following our Twitter or our Medium articles where we bring content about all Dotsama ecosystem projects and explaining all the Polkadot peculiarities to our community:-)

We have been a massive supporter of the Centrifuge project from the beginning with our first review of the project dating back to Oct 2020. We also pooled together with our Czech Polkadot community to be part of the Tinlake and successfully provided liquidity for a couple of projects. And last but not least, we really proud to be one of the active validators in the Centrifuge!

Regarding our validation/collation experience, we are proud members of the 1000 validators program on both Polkadot and Kusama and we also validate on basically all Dotsama parachains because we believe that involvement of community validators is healthy for the network :slightly_smiling_face:
