Hashkings Witness Budget (Draft)

in #hashkings10 months ago

We are proud to announce that Hashkings has made the #69 spot on the Steem Witness list!

Since we are climbing so rapidly in rank I thought this would be a good time to explain some of the ways Hashkings is planning to use the funds earned from running a witness. This is just a rough draft and will change but I wanted to keep everyone in the loop. I will go in to more depth as each of the items below becomes a reality.

  • Witness Operations
  • Tron SR Voting and User Rewards
  • Staking

Witness Operations

In order to operate as Hashkings Community Witness efficiently we currently have three positions.

  • Operations Team
  • Devops
  • Community Advocacy and Outreach

Operations Team

Oversees all witness operations and decides on upgrades to hardware and software. The operations team ultimately decides which version of steem that will be run.


Having the knowledge to properly run a server is a valuable asset as a witness and we are committed to using the most reliable hardware within our budget to run our witness.

Community Advocacy and Outreach

Our mission statement is Community First, this is why we have created the Community Advocacy and Outreach Teams. These teams will consist of users who go above and beyond just upvoting posts. Our advocates actively participate in the cannabis and overall Steem community. Our Community Advocacy and Outreach teams will also be in charge of organizing events, our community showcase and podcasts, charity contributions and interacting on community posts.

Tron SR Voting and User Rewards

I see Tron as a very big ally and see a huge potential in the future of that blockchain. As many of you know Justin Sun, the creator of Tron Blockchain now owns Steemit inc which tells me we should work more closely with the Tron community. To show solidarity and to give Steem users to participate indirectly on the Tron Blockchain we will use a portion of our earnings to vote on Super Representatives. This also allows our voters to earn Tron Voting Rewards!

Staking / Powering Up

We are committed to the blockchain and are not here to blindly dump our Steem. This is why we will be keeping most of our Steem powered up and only use funds to benefit our community and to cover overhead.

Budget Breakdown

CategoryItemized %% of Total
Operating Costs35%
Hardware Costs10%
Operator Costs40%
Outreach and Advocacy50%
Voting SR Rewards15%

These numbers are only an estimate and will be more fine tuned as we get more conclusive data on how much we are earning. According to my calculations we need to get around the 40th spot on the witness list in order to start implementing this plan.

Thank you so much for reading! This is the first draft and many changes will happen over the next year. I'm going to try and update this and write a new post with any new changes.See you soon!
