My fellow Steemians,
Welcome to my sixth witness update, a weekly post I do every Friday as some other witnesses do. These updates will hopefully be helpful to keep my followers and the community up-to-date with what I have been working on. I do hope I may gain your witness approval vote.
@jesta had devised a template that I've been using, which will be used here too. And as always for witness update posts, I will use the Power Up 100% option.
1. Accomplished the week of 2016-10-28
- Released a new tool to visualize the witness schedule in real-time. This shows the production of blocks as it happens, as well as upcoming backup witnesses and miners that will be scheduled. Do check it out as it is really cool and mesmerizing to see the blockchain in action! For more information see the announcement post [New Tool] - Witness Schedule - Live Visualization.
- I have done some updates on it since announcing and releasing this tool. These extra features and changes will be detailed in another post soon.
- Worked some more with @timcliff on the "Welcome to Steemit" page, and have made progress on incorporating this into the codebase. I will hopefully have this finished up by the end of the week or early next week and then post about it with a live demo for everyone to see and review.
- Got my public seed node seed.bitcoiner.me listed on @wackou's node statuses site at https://status.steemnodes.com/.
- Worked some more on some Steem-related web projects. They're not quite ready for release and need some more code work and testing before I can announce. Stay tuned.
2. Upcoming projects/goals
- Finish up the "Welcome to Steemit" page and have a demo up.
- Submit Steemit.com codebase changes currently working on.
- Continue with @timcliff's wish list and trying to implement some of the items there.
- Continue with the Steem-related web projects and have announcements and demos.
- Continue being active on Steemit, Steemit Chat, and GitHub.
3. Thoughts from this week
However, they have both posted today with some good news and the market did see a small price increase. Surely there will be greater things to come and Steemit and Steem will really make an impact in the cryptoworld. Time will tell. But as of this Halloween weekend, you can see the new Halloween-themed logo is missing the beta mark. @ned has commented that the beta has chosen to be a ghost! Haha.
With the new website changes soon to be released, the social networking aspect will surely get to be better and more user-friendly, attracting and retaining more users to come.
Finally, thanks to everyone who have voted for me as witness. I am currently at 44! Thanks to all who support me and like what I do. It is all very much appreciated!
