Steemit Quebec Witness

in #witness-category4 years ago


Hello Steemians, I am submitting my services as Steemit Quebec first Witness.

I got involved with Steemit Quebec and EOS Quebec thanks to @pnc and I plan to present and help organise meetups in and around Montreal.

I'm a DevOps with over 20 years of experience in the field. I've administered Unix / Linux systems since 1994 and began programming at the tender age of 10 with the Commodore VIC-20.

I was introduced to Steemit by @jerrybanfield last June and I've learned to appreciate the value it brings to the world and I've been looking for ways to contribute ever since.

Server Specifications

I've chosen a powerful server with a lot of ram and fast drive to be future proof as steem will for sure take off in a big way in 2018.

Witness nodeInfrastructure
Operating SystemUbuntu 16.04 LTS
Processor8 vCores X 2.4 Ghz
Hard Drive200 GB SSD

  • Remote Hosting in Canada
  • SSH keys to login
  • Password authentication disabled
  • Root login disabled


  • Creation Fee: 0.1 STEEM (following @pfunk's lead)
  • Maximum Block Size: 65536
  • 0% APR since the SBD value is high
  • The price feed is being published hourly using conductor.

Here are some of my latest contributions to steem

You will find that most of my post are done on @utopian-io and for that reason I would like to thank @elear for his contributions and dedication; I feel right at home here.

The server went live on December 26th 2017 and has been ready to step in to make blocks ever since. Many thanks to @jamzed in the witness chat for helping me setup my witness config and answering my questions.

The future

I plan to setup a seed node and a backup witness server soon.
