RE: Steemit Blockchain Team Update: AppBase, RocksDB, Bandwidth, HF20, SMTs, and more!

in #steem6 years ago

YES!!!! I have to confess I was a bit worried about the RAM requirements... Now I don't feel so bad when I say that I believe all top 20 Witnesses should run a full Node.

I know, that its not required, I get that, but to me it's about leading by example. I welcome disagreements, I do. But when the nodes go down and we have thousands of users not able to use the blockchain, It drives me nuts.

We are all shooting for mass adoption, as much as most users won't know the significance of this upgrade, we should all be celebrating.


Most of us witnesses don't disagree, but most of us can't afford it. If they can push HF20, we can, and then you'll see vast relief on resource utilizations system wide. Even if we just doubled from the dozen or so public ones now, to double that, it would be huge right now.

I'm aware that a witness that is not in the top 20 would struggle to do this. Some witnesses can't cover costs of operation from month to month and I'm sensitive to that of course. I guess my request is exclusively for those at the top.

I think it's a rational idea. But also, developers lean too much on the steemit api as well. Some of the others have been around a long time and stable enough to use as a primary with steemit api as a backup. That will also help the issue of people not being able to access the blockchain. Most interfaces I see use the steemit as a primary, and others only for backup. I feel it should be the other way around.
