My name is Bill Butler and I have been active in the Bitshares blockchain since the Protoshares days. I have also been active in the bitshares-ui repo by prioritizing tasks and updating the user experience. I am an experienced systems administrator and run a fleet of servers for mission-critical use.
I have set up a full node and plan to add a full-time API node in the US. This will be available from the AWS us-east-1 region. Currently, only the Dallas, TX node offers low latency in the US. I am also working to update the docker configuration with the help of @xeroc to make it easier for others to maintain full nodes.
I will ensure that the nodes under my control are patched for security vulnerabilities and have the latest production bitshares-core code. Please open up your BTS wallet and cast your vote for me:
