@ro-witness, the newest witness on the Steem Blockchain

in witness •  4 months ago

Hello Steem World,

@ro-witness has just been launched and it is the newest witness on the Steem Blockchain. The witness has been started to help the evergrowing Steem blockchain and the community around it.

Who are we?

The users behind the witness are @catalincernat and @alexvan, steemians involved in many projects and communities on Steem. We are both Romanians, even if one of us is living in Germany so that is why we have the ro in front of the @ro-witness. You can reach both of us on discord where we would answer most questions.

Why was @ro-witness started?

We strongly believe that Steem will grow exponential in the future and the power of Steem lies in each user that joins. We want to be the voice of the small minnow and also the voice of the big whales.

The first projects we will support are @photomatic, which is a project aiming to help the new and good photographers present on Steem and @steemromania the fast-growing community of Romanians on Steem. Of course, also other projects will be supported when we grow. Our main goal is to reach the top20 witness to work on consensus on the Steem blockchain, which shall be the top priority for a witness.

As we are strong believers in Steem and it's future we will not power down in the foreseeable future. The users behind @ro-witness did not power down and also the witness will have the same strategy, always powering up. It shows commitment to the future of the Steem blockchain.

We plan to install a full RPC node in the future.

Server Specification

Here are the specifications for our Steem dedicated server.

Hardware specs:
HP Proliant DL380 G7 server, 2x 2.66GHz HexaCore, 128GB RAM, 4 x 146Gb RAID10

Software specs:
Ubuntu 16.0.4
Steem-docker

WAN:
1Gbs business-grade connection.

UPS:
2 x Eaton 5P UPS, 1U, 1550 VA, 1100 W, C14 input.

Backup:
To external 4TB Synology NAS.

You can see in the following image the load on the server, which is not even reaching half of what the server is capable of. We are pretty sure that this specification will help us to avoid most of the missed blocks that happen on the blockchain.

As you can see we integrated two UPS in case that there is a power outage.

The replay process is 100% completed and we are ready to go on producing Steem blocks.

Voted for ro-witness as a witness. I consider it a good thing when more attention is paid to photography on Steemit. (And reanimating photomatic would be also a good thing!!).
Wish you a lot of success on the road to a succesful witness.

Thanks, Agniese! Hell, I do hope that you and your Bulgarian bad ass boyfriend will come back to Ro. I am in debt with several beers that I managed to miss whilst your last visit occurred.

·
·

Haha! You're freaking right! You owe us some beers! But we would come back to Bucharest anyway. Even this Badass loves the city and no, I swear I've never threatened him if he says something bad about Bucharest :))

Yes, I can confirm - there is no Agne-pressure with regards to my opinion about Bucharest :) I really liked the city!
You'll have a chance to pay your debts, Catalin :)
