Hello witnesses and other esteemed citizens,
After spending some time in the community, I have decided to update my witness application.
*Please note that I am not aggressively targeting a top 19 witness spot, I am happy with a spot on the back up list.*
My witness node is located in Canada, and is a powerful node: the only downtime I experience is with strokes of bad luck such as power outages. So far I have missed only one block in my history as shown on this list; this was today when I upgraded to v0.12.0.
Some of my qualifications so far:
- In my first hours I was able to compile and set up steemd, set up a witness, start mining, use CLI wallet, make a price feed, and so on. My first post mentions this here. As a computer engineer, this stuff comes naturally to me.
- My seed node is up on anyx.co:2001 (this is NOT the same as my witness node, of course!)
- I have not solicited (much), but have still gotten support from witnesses such as @arhag, @pharesim, @silversteem, @pfunk, @liondani, and others; and big players such as @berniesanders Thanks to the almost 30 people who already vote for me! Too many to list here.
- I am very active on slack; if I have helped you, feel free to comment on this post and let people know!
And my biggest selling point:
- I have created @cheetah bot, a content/plagiarism detector, as a community service.
You can learn more about the current version here.
Voting for me:
From CLI you can vote for me via
vote_for_witness YOU anyx true true
And you can also vote on the website here. As of this post I am #40.
