A few days ago, continuing with the hard work in order to achieve self-sustainability in the Latino Community (https://steemit.com/trending/hive-188619) it was finally decided to announce something great, and it is nothing more and nothing less that the first Witness Node running on the blockchain destined to represent Latin America (@cotina). As we well know, for a Witness node to grow properly it requires the approval of the blockchain users that is why as the current Community Manager of said community, the last few days I have tried to get in touch with other Witnesses, and Community Administrators with in order to reaffirm my commitment to forging good relationships, in addition to spreading to the maximum the news of the birth of this important project in our blockchain.

To begin, I would like to introduce myself, my name is José Demarzo and I operate on the platform under the alias @alejos7ven, I am a developer with experience in the Steem Blockchain, having launched the curation bot of the @steem-seven project, throughout my journey on this platform I have learned endless things from a lot of users and communities, simply with the aim of training myself as a quality user and to be able to provide knowledge to others if someone requires it.

My arrival in the Latin Community as Community Manager was unexpected for everyone, even for me, however, as soon as I knew about this decision I knew it was time to put everything I learned to the test during my journey in the Blockchain and offer the best for each user who makes life there. Without much hesitation, an action and growth plan was structured that would allow the construction of a community account from scratch capable of providing early stability to Latino users, which has been rare most of the time. In addition, a work team began to be built in the community, since this would facilitate and make decision-making there more flexible.
Cotina, is the name of the Community capable of providing a place in Steemit to 20 countries at the same time, keeping in mind that a community is not a leader but the people who make it up, for that reason it is tried every day to involve the maximum to each member that makes life there. A month ago the account was started at 0, and as a sign of the success of each action taken there, also thanks to the commitment of the members and all the receptivity received today we have an account with 12,642.46 SP (1,233.25 own and 11,409.21 delegates), after this it was decided to take the commitment to progressive growth, and with the Blockchain to another level and everything was prepared to deploy the Witness just a few days ago.

With this last decision, it is intended to safeguard the Steem Blockchain, represent Latin America, and trace a more direct path to self-sustainability. We can conclude that COTINA means commitment, dedication, innovation, solidarity and passion. Today I am at the service of any user in Steemit who is looking for a helping hand, I will promote good relations to the maximum because united, we can make a difference, and that is the vision that I want to give to any user in COTINA, brotherhood and companionship.
