@cloh76 Witness Introduction Post - cloh76.witness

Hello Steemit Friends,

Today I am proud to announce the launch of my very own Witness. Before I go into all the details, specs, and numerous plans I have, I want to thank @someguy123 for helping to setup and guide me through the entire process of setting this and my seed up.

About Me
I started using Steemit in July of 2016 (Yay!! 1 year anniversary) and created my account initially by mining. I didn't mine for long and eventually started using Steem by posting questions that I had about the platform and the community. Those inquiry posts eventually evolved into short posts about whatever topics I found interesting at the time. That was when I discovered that I could be paid for the content I created.

I have been active in crypto currencies and blockchain technology since 2014, starting like most people with mining Bitcoin. Once I had a better understanding of how crypto currencies work and what it took to mine various different coins, I started to diversify the various currencies I held. Although I have been active in the space, I still consider myself a verifiable noob and will never consider myself an expert. I currently hold Bitcoin, Steem, SBD, Ethereum ZCash, Dash, Litecoin Bitshares, and EOS and some other various currencies hoping to one day strike it Rich!!

To date I am just shy of 700 followers and have roughly 700+ posts on Steemit and I am grateful for everyone of my supporters. I look forward to my next milestone of 1000 followers! Hopefully you can help me get there if you find my content worthy.

More info
Unlike most Witnesses, I do not have massive experience in programming, vast knowledge about blockchain technology, and an outstanding portfolio that would make your jaw drop. I am one of the small guys who like post people, Love Steemit and what it stands for - Freedom through decentralization, a passion to help make a difference, and the ability to collaborate, share experiences, and support one-another freely.

I will always do what is best for the users of this ecosystem.

I firmly believe "What is good for the Whole will be good for the few."

I want to promote Steemit and help it grow in communities where it can make the biggest difference and have the biggest impact.

Why vote for me?
There is something about being the first - Steemit is the first platform of its kind. I am the first (at least I think I am) Asia based Witness - at least in the Philippines and China. Being a Witness in this region, I feel there is an untapped market where Steemit can really thrive and make a huge difference in communities.

Our Asian Countries have the largest populations in the world with the greatest levels of poverty and corruption. Steemit can make a huge difference in the life of many individuals in this region. Using the support from the community I want to be able to make a difference in communities where help will make the biggest difference and bring in users that will help us further diversify our community and allow these users to share their culture, experiences, and talents with the rest of the world.

Like all other Witnesses, I want to establish awareness programs and initiatives to grow our reach and userbase in countries where social media, wireless/mobile usage, and crypto based technology are more widely supported and used.

I also represent a large portion of the community who isn't hardcore crypto experienced, although I love digital currencies and the technology behind it. I am not a whale, a dolphin, and I'm definately not well known. I am one of the little guys - and as a little guy my focus will be on all of the other little guys and girls - those who have a hard time getting their content noticed and those that represent countries where Steemit can do the most good.

My goal is to take the experience I gain as a witness and translate that knowledge into something new Steemit and less experienced individuals can understand. Hopefully I can help simplify already complex processes and information into something anyone without a background in programming, technology, and digital currency that ordinary everyday people can understand. At the same time come up with programs and initiatives that will help boost and promote minnow and new user content.

I represent the voice of the less influential and a fresh perspective different then most other existing witnesses. I am also very active and almost always available - I fall asleep at my PC frequently and am virtually always online. You can find me on various discord channels hanging out both learning and sharing what I have learned with others.

My witness node is currently hosted by @privex and has a Zero-Block Miss SLA guarantee.
