I have been thinking running a witness in the last weeks, today I made it real. If you read this post and have no idea what is a witness, check out the related section on Steemit FAQ.
My name is Emre, a software developer from Istanbul, Turkey. I have been programming since high school which makes almost 12 years experience with programming languages. I currently lead a software development team in a B2B hotel provider company - biggest in Turkey.
I bought my first Bitcoin on 2014 and I am active on the scene since then. I have been studying blockchain technologies for a long time.
My contributions to STEEM
It has been 5 months since I have joined Steem network. I have been developing my own projects, contributing to others. There are just too many projects to list there, so I will just list some of them :)
An alternative activity feed for STEEM accounts. It has currently 200 daily unique users visiting the website. You can also see your potential earnings in SBD, SP, and USD.
I am running a steem-python fork with the fixes included and installable via pip.
Curobot is a personal curation bot, intended as the replacement of Steemvoter. You can get the same functionality (even more) without giving away your account's posting authorities.
I have documented steem-python with practical examples. Even, I go back and check these articles from time to time.
I have originally found the utopian tip bot's idea and implemented it. It's been serving without any problems for months.
I have automated lots of things at Utopian Discord for moderators. Probably we have saved countless hours of manual work in total after these bots came in place.
Page views at Steemit can indicate lots of things and used as a metric. However, getting that information programmatically was a challenge. I made a simple API giving that metric for posts.
I have also coded @abusereports' initial code in exchange of a bounty. However, I continue to give support and co-run it.
This is not all, I was like a project machine in the last couple of months. You can see more at my Github profile.
My Witness Server Specs
I have one witness server for now.
64x GB RAM 4 CORE Intel i7 CPU 2x2 TB HDD 1gbit/s network
If I go up on the list and start to get multiple blocks in a day, I will also open a backup witness server with automatic failover.
Vote for me as a witness!
