A highly reliable witness run by one of the best known developers from the Bitshares community.

This witness is run by Sigve Kvalsvik, also known as svk on the Bitshares forum and svk31 on Github.

I have a long track record of running a delegate on the Bitshares 1.0 network, where I was one of the most reliable witnesses and also one of the longest serving ones.

I've also been heavily involved in the Bitshares community as a frontend developer: building the first block explorer (Bitsharesblocks) before being recruited by Dan Larimer to work on the GUI for Graphene (Bitshares 2.0). This GUI is the basis for the Openledger trading platform.

I'm a fairly big shareholder in Steem and have a big interest in helping it succeed. Vote for me and together we'll go on to great things! :)

Where do you live? So you would only buy thing with steem w/o converting it to a different currency? How do you get people to accept it?

it's simple but a bit confusing.. Let me walk you through it.. First, you have to convert your SP into Steem. Once that is taken care of and you have however much SD ( steem dollars) you want to withdraw via ATM to make transfers easier to the public.. Merchants being the easiest worldwide accept the currency including myself, so if you want to personally trade it I'm happy too.? BTW check out QUIDPOS It's a quick way to convert currency P2P.

That is amazing, I would love to travel. I have all the time in the world but all my money seems to be getting drained into ETC. I'm poor. In BTC STEEM and ETH now. YAY, I need to meditate, something will come to me.

Now that is a wonderful idea. I must figure out what to do to be able to do the same.

I don't know anything about what you do but I'm trying to learn. In the 2 weeks I've been here I've seen you consistently at the top of the list on Steemd and you're always way over 90% so....I'm going to assume you're top notch and invested. I'm also going to assume that you are partly responsible for keeping Steemit sustainable and healthy - and for that, I sincerely thank you!

Cheers. I actually do most of my posting in this account (@svk), especially for the projects I've been working on.

I'm not a full-time member of the Steemit team but I've been helping out with the website development recently, and I've also released several open-source libraries that allow developers to interact with the Steem blockchain using JavaScript.

Hi. I don't know who to contact but I got a major problem with Steemit

I have been trying everything in order to resolve the "Missing Posting Authority" error

-cleared post
-cleared cache
-changed browsers
-changed password

all these by logging out loggin in again. nothing.

I suspect this happened because I switched off the internted from my computer and the login credentuals got messed up. either this or there is massive error in the database.

Hey, @witness.svk please share in what cryptocurrencies you invested?

P.S it's very interesting to know where smart people invest.
