in witness-category •  2 years ago

My fellow Steemians,

Welcome to my weekly witness update. This is something I do every Friday as some other witnesses do too. (I did have an absence over the holidays and was busy catching up with work and everything coming back.) Hopefully, this will keep my followers and the community up-to-date with what I've been up to. Ultimately, I hope I may gain your witness approval vote.

The template used here was devised by @jesta. And as always for witness update posts, I will use the Power Up 100% option.

1. Accomplished since the last update

2. Upcoming projects/goals

  • Continue to spend time on the codebase.
  • Continue with @timcliff's wish list and trying to implement some of the items there.
  • Continue being active on Steemit, Steemit Chat, and GitHub.

3. Thoughts since the last update

So many things have happened these last few weeks!

The highly anticipated roadmap has finally released a few days ago, at the post Steemit 2017 Roadmap. All the quarterly and general goals are exciting and Steemit, Inc. will definitely be busy for the year!

In addition, there have been new updates to, such as the nsfw options, push notifications, and bug fixes and other code changes.

There are also proposals for the next hardfork 0.17, adopting the guiding principle KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) and hoping to gain adoption and make the system more robust. The community had a lot of discussion over the points, which are at Steem 0.17 Change Proposal Introduction.

As I had a break over the holidays and didn't leave word when I should have, I did receive a few witness un-approval votes and unfollows. I do hope that our paths may cross again.

Finally, thanks to everyone who have voted for me as witness. I have moved up a few spots, currently at 35! @ned has recently voted for my witness, and I am very grateful to have his support! I didn't expect to have the vote from our CEO so soon since becoming a witness four months ago! Thanks to all who support me and like what I do. It is all very much appreciated!

One part of steemit I dont quite understand yet witnesses


In essence, witnesses are responsible for keeping the network going and bringing value to the community. They are generally trusted members of the community. Here's a post from @pfunk that goes into more detail - A Full Steemit User's Guide to Steem Witnesses.


Another important point on this is that they're elected by the community to do these things - anyone who gets involved can be a witness!

(You obviously know this, just adding this for future readers)

Keep up the good work man!
