For my live show called 'Crypto Talk Monday' on MSP waves, I interviewed @themarkymark. He's the current #5 witness, creator of the global blacklist API and the owner of buildawhale.
He's also very knowledgeable about the technical side of Steem and we talk a lot about it in this show.
This is a show filled with great info. You will learn a lot about Steem that you as a user you might not realize is going on in the background.
(from 0:00 - 3:40)
The first minutes are filled with talk about the show 'Firefly' and then it really kicks off.
(from 3:40 - 17:50)
We talk about why @themarkymark decides to keep a very low personal profile on Steem.
Then we talk about witness duties and the global blacklist API that he created.
(from 17:50 - 37:30)
We talk a lot about HF21 and HF22 . What went wrong when the blockchain halted? How was it fixed and what happens behind the scenes to get the blockchain up and running again.
What are the limitations of the testnet? Will bugs always happen? What can we do as Steemians to help test for a next HF?
We also talk about MIRA, full nodes, cost reductions, replay times and more.
from 37:30 - end
We talk about the SPS, the funded proposals and the reward pool.
We talk about the trending page and how it looks to the outside world compared to 'our world'.
We talk about combating abuse and @themarkymark shares one of the biggest abuse stories on Steem that he knows.
And lastly, we talk about voting bots.
Enjoy the show!
