I have ordered new 64GB servers to replace unreliable hosts. Seed05 has continued to be a problem in February, but I have been unable to upgrade until now for various reasons. The upgrade will be done in the next few days.
I resumed feeding BTWTY, although it is still in the black swan state until a bidder offers adequate collateral to buy the asset’s debt. I have added the HERTZ asset to my price feeds using the reference python script provided by @cm-steem, who has since improved the code and updated his documentation for it. I tried to publish with a new version of bts_tools (0.6.0b1), but @wackou has not completed the changes to that version yet and my attempt to use it failed.
Failover protection is working but I continue to tweak it. Two parameters can be adjusted: 1) Missed blocks threshold, 2) Reset after N good samples. I have not changed the former, which is set to 3. However, the second parameter will reset the program’s missed block counter if N samples occur with no more missed blocks. The bigger N is the longer the program has to accumulate missed blocks. Setting N too low can disable switching entirely.
There was another reduction in the number of witnesses from 21 down to the current 19. Here is the market summary since last month (all prices via CMC): BTC=$10,956.40, BTS=$0.235, STEEM=$3.24, PPY=$5.49.
That's it for now. Have a great weekend!

And the testnet server for BTS:
is greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time and attention
