Steem Witness Update 6/18/2018
Hi guys, I just wanted to give you a quick update regarding my witness and seed node. Although I haven't produced my first block yet, both servers have been running flawlessly for the last 7 days. My witness has also been providing an accurate price feed every hour over the last week. So things are working perfectly which is great!
According to Steemin.info I am currently ranked #232 and this is why I haven't produced any blocks yet. With your support via witness vote, we can speed that process up! 😉 Either way, I'm happy to be a backup witness and know that I'm supporting the blockchain.
On another note, I've been keeping an eye on the various steem.chat rooms for witnesses. I try my best to stay plugged in with what's going on with the blockchain, possible updates, and what our other witnesses are up to.
How to Become a Witness?
I also recently put together a tutorial for setting up both a seed and witness server. I gave all the technical specs, what to consider before beginning, and a step-by-step walk-through for setting up your servers. This should help guide other Steemians who are considering taking the step towards becoming a witness.
Last week we saw an interesting scenario play out. We had quite a number of applicants for @minnowfund but only one met our requirements for delegation. Therefore, they were instantly chosen as the winner of our delegation. Congratulations to @jdh7190 who received 100 SP delegation from us and will receive upvotes on all of his posts from the @minnowfund account.
If you, or someone you know, would like to be considered for MinnowFund delegation, then please follow our channel at @minnowfund and be on the lookout for a post this Friday announcing that applications are open again. To date, we have provided 750 SP in delegation to users. We aim to continue supporting those who have shown they have a true desire to make an impact on the Steem blockchain.
Upvote Bot Updates
Over the last couple of weeks something interesting happened in the world of upvote bots. As the price of Steem has dropped, it has caused the reward payouts to be paid out in Steem, SBD, and SP. Unfortunately, the Steem payouts are not worth nearly that which you previously had gotten in SBD. Therefore, purchasing upvotes from upvote bots has become even pricier.
In an effort to continue providing a cost-effective service, and encourage users to keep producing content while the price of Steem is low, I have tweaked the ROI of my upvote service. It is now set to a minimum of 10% ROI and a maximum of 15%. Please note that although these are numbers I have set in the script configuration, you're more likely to see a 1%-10% ROI at most. Again, this is due to the payouts being split between Steem and SBD now.
