While awaiting the next steem-software updates, I have been hardware-upgraded to what someone would call "overkill" but I believe in good quality and the ability to welcome large quantities of new people joining our ever growing userbases on the many steem-platforms!
It is about being READY for Growth! Mega Growth!
I expect 2 million accounts soon, and then 4 million accounts etc... And I am sure there will be volatility in the coins which increasing amounts of transaction and overall activity goes up by a lot.
Luckily a lot of new thinking has been adopted and the code has been reviewed to optimize how we use resources, and in one of the upcoming updates the largest part that contains blog-posts etc will be saved and held on the hard drive which are 4 TB (2 prime + 2 backup) and economy transactions will be held in RAM, which is great - except I just upgraded to a truck worth of RAM, so I I guess I am the weird HotRod around here :)
(After a successful FORK/UPDATE and everything is getting calm, it is time for a beer with the social people of steem!)
Come and SPEAK with me, I want to hear your voice and get to know you too!
For 2 years I have provided an unofficial place for steem-investors and steem-superusers can meet 24/7 and talk, get to know each other, raise concerns, talk about solutions etc. It is a complete free-speech place allowing peoples emotions and wording and action to be judged mildly. We also have a rule of No Bullshit, which is - do not lie to SteemSpeak, because SteemSpeak will find out, and we will - with 5700 active members since the last mass-kicking last week proves that people care, and have a lot on their hearts. You can talk me with there 17 hours every day at http://SteemSpeak.com - Discord link: https://discord.gg/TP6HYAx
(From my Master office I get to administrate a lot of processes while freeing up time to speak with you on @SteemSpeak 17 hours per day.)
Action & Security!
When there is action, I am there - so expect me to be awake and ready for everything during abnormal situations. I monitor my witness 24/7 and am also looking for or told about exploits which we can eliminate by simply being in a very big room together on the Internet where we cannot physically touch each other, but we can communicate and inform, think and conclude great ideas or really bad ideas. STEEM has a bright future ahead of it, and we are more than ready to meet that future now!
