We are a Dutch family of six. As a father and son, (Jochum & Martijn) we are both in possession of ADAs. In the beginning we were just delegators. Then the idea came to bundle knowledge and build a stake pool. Since we started as a family, we decided to include the family name (Broekhuijse) in the stakepool name. This is how BR03K was born. However, we decided the name BR03K was a too complex, so we changed it into SOON, after a Twitter reveal campaign of Charles Hoskinson.

Jochum is an IT productmanager, with over 20 years of experience in IT. He started as a systems programmer on IBM Z/os, (mainframe) but nowadays responsible to deliver hosting and application services of platforms like IaaS (X86 with Linux, Windows and Container Hosting), as well as AIX and IBM Cloud PAK’s within the Dutch government. Although his focus is more on services, he has always liked technology. In his free time Jochum likes to ride his motorcycle, doing a workout with his son, working on his motorcycle or Martijn’s scooter, or just watch a (sentimental)movie. 😉

Co-ops is Martijn, just left high school end enjoying a gap year. Finding out what profession will fit him most, to continue studying next year. In the mean time he’s learning on the job how to operate a stakepool. Also as contingency backup, to maintain continuation of SOON pool. In his free time, Martijn is an avid fitness enthusiast, you will find him in the gym every day. He’s doing a course for personal trainer, just for background knowledge how to perform healthier with his muscles. He also likes hanging out with a few friends, although this is difficult at the moment, given the Covid measures and the curfew. At last he likes working on his scooter. At this moment we are just finished with an engine overhaul… See added picture:
