Sahkan-Bitshares Witness Update

in #bitshares3 years ago

I did it! Switched to Steem for my updates that is...

2017 has been a tremendous growth year for Bitcoin and all Alt coins, and even though we put a lot of work into Bitshares I think this is just the beginning of things to come on the DEX. We continue to break record transactions on Steem, Bitshares, Bitcoin and Ethereum but as the last 2 are at the breaking point (maxing out) the first 2 are just getting started. We continue to add to the DEX infrastructure and provide additional Full nodes for Light Bitshares Client connections. Until recently I was running the only API server in USA but with the new infrastructure worker and couple of witnesses adding full nodes we now have a very strong Full node presence in the USA. You can look at the below list and manually add any access points that you might be missing:


I have added my latest Full node server in Los Angeles:

Server specs: E5-1650v3 - 128GB RAM - 2 x 512GB SSD - 1GBit Uplink - DDoS Protection

The server is on the Psychz APLLR network to provide low latency to Asia and across USA.

The Dev team continues to roll out upgrades to the Bitshares Core and GUI. Both of my full nodes are running the latest versions and the DEX access UI at is running the latest 171219 (I added couple of access points to it). Both nodes are now averaging about 500 simultaneous connections each.

And now for my...

In your Bitshares client click on your name (top right) then clock on Voting. You can vote for my witness under the witness tab. If you use a proxy (name will be in the top left proxy box, give me the name of the proxy so I can verify the vote. Thanks!

Since came back online I was able to verify that you are not voting for my witness atm. You need to go to the Voting screen and toggle the voting check-mark next to my witness sahkan-bitshares and post here so I can verify. Thanks!
