Witness Application - Anyx

7 months ago

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:

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.

Thank you!



Since posts like to be accompanied by photos, here is a shot I took during my recent trip to Chicago!

@anyx definitely deserves your votes... He is dedicated and very enthusiastic with stem/steemit! It seems to be one of the safest "bet" you can make ;)

I wish I could do this. It will take me more than a day to learn all of this.

Is your identity information public?

Hi @ned, with the current stuff happening with cheetah bot I am not so sure it is a good idea to make it completely public. However, several of the witnesses know my real identity and I am perfectly comfortable sharing it with you folks.

@ned, I don't think witnesses should necessarily be publicly identified. Knowing who are witnesses makes it much easier to apply coercion. Having a mixed bag of known and anonymous witnesses should be safer so long as anonymous witnesses are doing a good enough job of adding value to the network to rule out malicious intent.

This is looking good already. The fact that it's located in Canada scores extra points. Love that place
