BitShares – New public node – Slovenia, Balkans

in bitshares •  last year 

Slovenia, EU


Carrying on from previous posts where @murda-ra announced nodes we provided, we have set up a further RPC node in The Balkans.

Since we had noted there is demand in different areas globally for BitShares, are currently opening up in other countries. In such cases, where there is demand and it helps to expand the global footprint of the BitShares network and community, we are providing our support and services. Our presence in Slovenia with a local partner is just a first step, as soon we will also add Sweden.


To a BitShares shareholder in Slovenia – who wishes to remain anon at this time – for coming to us and requesting these professional hosting services. This was no simple case, since the laws regarding cryptocurrency and mining there-of in Slovenia are a little vague at this time, and not everything can be announced how you would expect. In which case we thank them for the additional co-ordination with their hosting company, making available a specific server which includes SMS and e-mail admin notifications to us in the event of ws[8090] protocol being down.

Node is fully synced, up and running, but, before next UI release you of course have to add it manually to connect to it

Thank you!


Thank you also :)

I am in Greece, which is fairly close to Slovenia. But I am getting very high latency with that connection (latency 3107ms ). This is much higher than my latency with Kansas, my best node latency (latency 1039ms) even though it is much further in distance from me than Slovenia.


I miss Hanioti :) Been decade since I've been to Greece! Glad you're sorted now. Soon Serbia is coming as RPC so it will be even lower :)




Now, latency 278ms! That is great. Thank you.

Excellent, great news! This is what we like to hear :)


I agree

for my friends in Belgrade now you will have a real fast ping to $BTS



Za sve prijatelje iz Beograda i Srbije, dobrodosli na DEX! Veliki pozdrav sa Tajlanda!

Indeed you should see that :) Thanks for the retweets on @apasiatech Twitter!

How to run and use a full node?


There will be a tutorial published soon, with instructions by @murda-ra [the one they refer to as 'DL' on the BitShares_Dex Telegram channel ]
