Ambassador of the Month
Introducing Vladimir Shulga from Russia.

“I’ve spent the last 2 years living in Indonesia. I think the first time when I heard about Moonbeam was March of 2021. And it was a post in telegram about the ambassador program. And I just think, why to not try something new?

My favorite experience as an ambassador there was a performance on stage. It is very exciting to tell people about smart contracts, the Moonbeam ecosystem, and the opportunities it provides. I think if you are in crypto, you should definitely try yourself as an ambassador. Whether it is Moonbeam or another company, just choose the one you like and in whom you believe.”

For questions about anything ambassador related contact Phil (@Phyn) on Discord or Telegram.
