Witness Update - DragosRoua

Technical and Economical

  • kept my witness node running smoothly, with no missed blocks
  • kept my price feed bias, at 0% - SBD is trading at $1.01, basically at the peg
  • kept my SBD APR at 2.5% - in an attempt to keep SBD up to the peg
  • kept the account registration fee at $1 (I use a script called steem witness toolbox, available for free on Github, for publishing the feed price and adjusting a few blockchain props)
  • kept the block size at 65,536


  • followed up on a community enhancement project, in which I delegated 1000SP for a month to the most interesting project selected after I made a call for proposals. I ended up with 7 proposals and picked @walkingkeys. He started to do a 30 days writing challenge with an emphasis on how to use Steemit. Here are the posts from 15 to 16:

-- Day 15: Keeping The Steemit Focus (30 Days Of Steemit Success)
-- Day 16: Steemit Strategy (30 Days Of Steemit Success)

I encourage you to participate in his challenge. In this specific project I've been also supported by @alexvan who also delegated 200 SP. If the project will be successful, at the end of the month I will launch another call for proposals, in which I will delegate 2 x 1000SP. Let's see how this one goes.

  • made an update to steem.supply, adding a new type of chart: Upsteemers versus Followers, read the blog post here:

Thank you so much for continuing to publish this important information.

Nice work as always @dragosroua. Steem.supply has developed nicely as well. I use it often.

What would ypu attribute the current low price of Steem to, and how long do you think it will stay this low?

I attribute it to the market and I think it will stay like this for as long as the market will want to...

Haha!! I somehow knew I would get an answer like this. Everything else is pure speculation I guess...

Keep up the great spirit, have a good week @clumsysilverdad

The SBD APR has been fluctuating between 0 and 0.01% in the last week.
But isn't the APR greater than zero when the price of SBD is below the 1$ peg?
SBD price seems to be just above the peg according to steem.supply, not sure if this is an after-effect of the 0.01% interest rate or not.

But isn't the APR greater than zero when the price of SBD is below the 1$ peg?

not necessarily, or automatically. It's set up by witness consensus.

Thank you very much for share this important post. I think you can do they will accept your proposals. Cheers~

Excellent update this is you are doing fantastic work :)

I have a question, let's say you are delegating 2000 SP! Can you please tell me how can I calculate how much worth that 2000 SP 100% upvote? I am very interesting about this SP things, and hope I can provide you a good proposal for the next round!
