I have setup a seed node at Linode in the UK 4GB RAM, 4 CPU cores (can scale up as needed), the VM is dedicated for steemd node
witness servers (1 primary and hot backup) are located somewhere else.
I am new to BitShares type of coin and learning about it (and witnessing) because of mining STEEM
i saw the coin launch in bitcointalk and it looked very interesting, so i tried to mine
in digital/crypto currency i am mainly interested in helpful POW (folding@home related crypto currencies CURE and FLDC)
i created Dockerfile for compiling and running steemd for mining, and bash script for price feeds, nagios script for seed-node, failover script for witness pubkey
(my witness steempty missed 38 blocks during POW, and high participation since DPOS)
my job for several years was a Linux sysadmin, so i am capable of monitoring and maintaining good uptimes, worked for a few successful startup companies.
I am located in Israel
