Hello Steem community!
My name is Michael, and I have followed and been involved in several crypto projects since 2012, most notably as former CSO at MMC and founder and kind-of-CEO of Horizon and HZxchange.
In all this time I have enjoyed creating things people can use as well as helping out with technical support. I follow Dan's developments since the launch of PTS, and find it absolutely amazing how his visions match my vague ideas how things should work.
When I heard about Steem I was caught immideately, I love the idea to reward those committing to the cause. The whole concept is just awesome, and the easiest thing I can do to contribute is running a witness node for the network. I operate several dedicated servers for my job, crypto projects and privately, I can definitely handle that.
Besides the already mentioned skills my main job is development, mostly web related stuff in PHP and JS, but also Python, Java and Go.
My seed node is running at steemd.pharesim.me:2001, witness address is undisclosed for obvious reasons. They're both dedicated servers with a good connection in a german data center.
Due to recent events the following main project I have been working on is partially on hold, I hope to get back the support I need to return to working on this as much as I did and planned to.
I'm also running the Dice service for Steem and SD, and provide open source scripts and tools routinely.
You can vote for me on the witness list. Be aware that an upvote for a witness post is not a vote for the witness!
If you want to meet me personally or got any questions, just drop me a message on the Steem slack!
