Witness Update

4 October2018
New Server & v0.20.5 & Curation Experiment

Please read my witness thread.

I juts got a new server. I've been using Privex for 225 days, but $110 per month is too expensive for witness at rank ~150 and STEEM price bellow dollar. I would have to pay 130 STEEM for next month, but I produce only ~35-40 blocks per month (1 SP/block).
So I bought new server from Hetzner for $45 per month (plus few dollars for exchange from STEEM to PayPal and for PayPal fees). So my new server costs me around 50 USD per month.

My new Server:

  • Intel Core i7-3930
  • 2x HDD SATA 750 GB
  • 8x 8192 MB DDR3 (64 GB RAM)

Block was already produced on new server: Block 26508293

I updated my witness node to v0.20.5. I need to replay my node again, so witness was disabled for few hours.

2 days ago I saw post by @ervin-lemark about his new curation system. I've been thinking about my voting for some time and I realize that I'm voting same 50 people all the time. My self-voting was ~10%, so I decided to spread my votes as wide as possible.

I follow votes from:

At SteemAuto.com, I'm trailing @teamslovenia, @steemstem, @cryptoctopus, @photofeed, @surpassinggoogle, @cervantes.

At SteemVoter, I'm following votes from @whatsup, @arv1, @neoxian, @yehey, @surfermarly, @aicurator, @ricardo306, @abh12345, @oldtimer. I would follow votes from more users, but there is limit of 10 users.

And I follow guilds from @curie and @c-squared.

Result after 2 days:

Voting CSI 135.6 ( 4.96 % self, 2469 upvotes, 1721 accounts, last 7d )

(Ant there will be some nice curation rewards to - 16.033 SP in just 2 days. I expect ~25 SP in this week)

Delegations and Community projects

I'm delegating 100 SP to @sirsensei for his #drawitbetter contest.

I'm delegating 500 SP to @teamslovenia discord voting bot --> https://discordapp.com/invite/G4fMMfB
(I'm also hosting this bot on my new server)

I didn't know that you are upset that I spent $150 on my post and that's your budget. Well I voted with my trail.

Thanks for being a witness and helping the community. I've put aside. My witness dreams and I'm living life in the real world.

I'm still hosting the Portland Oregon meet-ups. Maybe one day you can come visit.

I'll follow and try to vote to help you out.

Nothing personal. I worked hard and got some open rounds that night. And Now I know I'll throw you some. Votes!
