Announcement: Charlie Shrem Advisor to Steem and Witness Proposal
Up until now I have been very successful on Steem. By posting chapters of my book and other stories over the last several weeks, I have shown the community and myself what's possible in the new world of blockchain and creative content. Historically I have been one of the leading entrepreneurs in the cryptocurrency space, and Steem represents a new chapter for the technology and my career as a thought leader and innovator.
As an advisor to the Steem community, you can expect me to bring my insights and savvy to entrepreneurs working on Steem-based projects in order to help grow the community and create meaningful partnerships.
In addition to SteemPower.org I will be working with Ned, Dan and the Steemit team on a weekly basis in addition to many other Steem projects. If you have a project, please reach out to me and I’d love to help!
We want to support new projects that add a better user experience at the same time developer tools and documentation.
You can contact me at [email protected] or in Steem Chat.
Yesterday I launched a very powerful Witness for Steem under SteemPower.org
Throughout my career I’ve did my best to maintain neutrality and independance. Being a public speaker and in the public spotlight, I am accountable for my actions and in the past have done so.
A few days ago I hired @garethnelsonuk as a full time engineer. Gareth was the co-founder & CTO of BitInstant and is a full stack engineer. Under SteemPower.org he has build our high functioning markdown editor and our steem witness. He will be maintaining and upgrading our witness in addition to building new projects and tools.
Our Witness is based in Northern California and seed nodes are in the USA and Europe at the moment. Our plan is to have high redundancy and backup nodes which we already have running.
Our price feed is running at 0,20,30,45 minutes past the hour every hour and you check it out at https://steemd.com/@charlieshrem.
It works the following way:
1 - get the BTC/STEEM price from as many sources as possible and average it out
2 - get the USD/BTC price and average out
3 - get the BTC/SBD price
From that we to obtain the USD/SBD or USD/STEEM rate.
Some of the specifications of the Seed Nodes are:
Xeon E5-2670 quad core
160GB SSD harddrive
CPU's are clocked at 2.6ghz
You can connect to our Witness at 18.104.22.168:2001 or seed.steempower.org
