If you do not know what a witness is, read this post by @someguy123:
Hard Fork 19 is behind us and with it came some problems. Some witnesses had their servers running on 8GB space and with all the new traffic that was not enough so blocks got missed… So I set out to provide a powerful backup witness to ensure that this won't happen again!
My witness node is running on @privex hardware and has a whoppin 24GB of RAM available to the blockchain with enough to spare to increase it even further.
Full witness node specs
- 32gb DDR3 ECC RAM
- 4c/8t Intel Xeon CPU E3-1245V2
- 2x 3TB HDD
- 1gbit/s network (20TB b/w)
- hosted in Germany
So who am I?
I am @reggaemuffin, a developer and Computer Science Student from Germany who wants to build stuff for steem! I am passionate about the steem ecosystem from a social perspective and like many of you feel that this system has the power to change society for the better. I want to support the good work other users are doing and help onboard many new users.
Why vote for me?
Some values I stand for and whom you support by voting for me:
- I want new users to get early support
- I created multiple support projects and plan on creating more! If you have ideas and want my support, hit me up on discord!
- I want to promote original content and help users who go the extra mile
- I already spend hundreds of steem to promote new quality writers and plan to use witness funds for this too.
- I want a fair and stable blockchain for all users
I may not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.
- I want to stop plagiarism and spam from flooding the platform
- I educate new users and work with the steemcleaners to stop this behaviour from getting monetarily rewarded
- I want diversity of content and people living of the posts they write for niche topics
- I am supporting content creators in niche topics so that they can support others in their niche
My witness settings
- Account creation fee is at 0.5 STEEM as HF 20 will soon overhaul this system no need to tweak that now
- Max Block Size is at 65536 but with the intend to soon increase this
- SBD interest rate is 0% as SBD is already overvalued and needs to go down again
- I will host my pricefeed with pegging enabled as we need to get SBD stable
- A seed node is in the works and will soon be available
Some things I did:
- I manage @welcomebot to greet new users and help them start
- I host a weekly giveaway to give new users a place to promote themselves
- Together with @robofox I started SteemPact a weekly charity fundraiser to motivate fellow steemers to do something good with this platform
- I wrote a guide for new users that helps find many of the awesome tools build for steem
- I build the current version of whaleshares.net that helps new users make fewer mistakes in using their shares
