Unfortunately our witness, @jacor-witness, has missed a few blocks because 32GB of RAM just doesn't cut it anymore. As the Steem user base increases and more content is generated daily, the demands on the blockchain witnesses also increase.
Luckily our server upgrades are already on the way! We are taking this opportunity to also upgrade the SSD storage and the CPU while the server will be down for a few hours anyway. We will be installing a shiny new 6-core 8th gen Core i5 CPU and more SSD space since the blockchain is over 80GB already. Along with 64GB of RAM we should be future proof for a while.
Our air-conditioned server room with its 10Mbps fibre Internet connection is more than sufficient at the moment - so that will stay as-is.
Upgrades cost money :(
SportsPodium will support the Steem witness because we believe that Steemit provides amazing opportunity to many communities out there. We are exceptionally excited about SMTs and what that would mean for our project as well as many others out there.
But your votes will go a long way to help us keep this Witness in tip-top shape while it helps to maintain the network. Please vote for us by clicking on this link:
