As a computer engineer by day (ahem, and by night), I was hooked into steem the moment I saw it. Which was, er, just the other day. :)
I wanted to introduce myself, and say hello to the all the other new people as we see the liftoff of steem (Surpassing Litecoin, amazing).
I was a bitcoin enthusiast since several years ago, witnessing the roller coaster as I stumbled through my undergrad education -- it even helped pay for some tuition.
As we grow older, I became a grad student in computer engineering, and bitcoin started getting more adoption, it seems only fitting that we continue with novel inventions in the space, and I think steem will pick up steam in its niche.
I also jump started mining (with a couple hundred KH/s). Feel free to ask me for help on getting set up mining, and if I helped you, I would appreciate if you voted for me as a witness too! You can do this with cli wallet, with the command:
vote_for_witness you anyx true true
I don't intend to go after a top witness spot, but I intend to keep this node up for the long term, which I think will be helpful for the network. :)
Oh, I am also a photographer. This may be a good medium for me to start posting my pictures! Here's one of my favourites.
Have a great day!
