Witness @roelandp

in #witness-category8 years ago (edited)

The time has come to rebrand my early witness test @paynode (#49) and reveal my intention as witness @roelandp and upgrade all my efforts for this. I want to seriously add my fair share of server support to this blockchain and have prepared for this in the past weeks:

I've run @paynode for about 7/8 weeks without any downtime and 2 blocks missed because of initial misconfiguration 1 block missed and 2 blocks missed because of a replay of the blockchain after a hardfork update. I know this shouldn't happen but I was a backup witness without a backup node... Those things have changed now.

If you want to learn more about me, I recommend you read my introduceyourself post. It deals about kitesurfing, windmills, pancakes, festivals and how I enrolled in computer life.

Through my company, Shoudio (a badly chosen "Shout-Audio" acronym), CMS and app production for location based media and numerous other web apps I've gained considerable knowledge in the fields of server maintenance and cloud based intense usage "solutions". At home I have some Raspberry Pi's with Arch Linux, Raspian, Kodi XBMC. Here is a RaspiCam to Youtube stream tutorial for you.

What I have brought to Steem to date:

What I want to bring for Steem in the future:

  • A reliable seed node and block signing through my witness infrastructure
  • Continued promotion of Steem as a great base for decentralised apps (a job as developer evangelist I would see fit)
  • Bring future SteemFest's across the world
  • Promote Steem as the alternative, reliable and fast confirming cryptocurrency

    Do I earn your trust and support?

Fellow kitesurfer, have my first ever vote!

I am new into the community, but just voted for you!
Hope to keep learning and helping with whatever I can

I just voted for you. I don't know you, but you seem like a honest and decent guy.

I have voted and follow, I looked almost all 50 Witness and voted only for 7 persons. @roelandp is a good guy.

good choice... @roelandp
You have my witness vote already and i do follow roland...

as a new member, i know i gain a lot from roland...just sent my 2 new maiden posts...need you guys to look into it and comment...possibly upvot...thanks

You have got my vote. Althoug not a kitserver myself, I love watching it, spectacular!. One of my colleagues is a kitesurfer (Wijk aan Zee) and maybe if I was a little bit younger I would try it myself 🏄🏻

Thanks for SteemWallet and helping me recover my private keys! I’m enjoying the Steem platform thanks to you!

Good work!

I can get behind you on this. Witness upvoted. I appreciate the fact that you testbed yourself as a witness prior to asking for votes. That wins points in my book.

You've also taken the careful consideration to have redundancy built into your solution. Thank you for that.

Easy witness choice... I already voted for paynode and I just switched votes for roelandp.

Good Luck!
