Witness Update - DragosRoua

in witness-category •  10 months ago

Technical and Economical

  • kept my witness node running smoothly, with no missed blocks
  • updated my price feed twice, first time for 200% and second time for 300%, following a broader attempt of witnesses to normalize the SBD price, which, at the moment of writing this, is trading at almost $8
  • kept my SBD APR at 1%
  • kept the account registration fee at $1 (I use a script called steem witness toolbox, available for free on Github, for publishing the feed price and adjusting a few blockchain props)
  • kept the block size at 65,536


  • updated steem.supply with a minor release, mostly related to the way rewards are displayed, trying to adapt to the new SBD highs, read the full release notes here.

Hi @dragosroua, Thanks for all the updates. A quick question for you:

We know that SBDs have a very small market cap. How did it all happen that its price hit $14 mark twice in a week? Can you answer this question.

You're doing a very good job. So, I wish you all the best as you climb up the ladder of success through this witness role.

Stay awesome man and keep serving Steemit.

Steem On!


I answered a few more times, so you can have a look at one of the articles above, specifically at this one: https://steemit.com/steemit/@dragosroua/how-sbds-are-created-and-what-could-happen-if-sbd-is-pegged-to-usd10-instead-of-usd1 it's a bit more complicated than just a few lines in a reply, but hopefully it will give you a better understanding. Thanks for your support!

Keep up the good work, it is appreciated!


Thank you :)

It would be interesting if you wrote in these updates your last overall rank so it would be easier to see if you are going up or down.


I'm not sure I understand what you mean, a comparison with the last week rank? FWIW, I'm trending down :), last week I was at 65.


Yeah that's what I meant :). Sorry for the convoluted phrasing

SteemBlockChainDollars is at $11.82 right now.


Depending on exchange, I presume...


I find it much safer to follow the coinmarketcap price, because it gives an average of the prices in all exchanges.


this site claims
Showing you the "real" Steem Dollar value calculated with the latest exchange values.

I've checked it many times...seems about right..it changes constantly..
$ 11.935292878122
right now.
