To update your full node (RPC Node):

hey mate,

pardon if this is a bit off topic, though someone recommended I contact the witnesses to share a large-scale idea I posted about today to advance Steem’s development, and aiming to get the idea out in front of some power-players who might be able to run with it:

The $1 Billion Steem Development Fund: How Steemit Inc.'s Stake Could Be Best Allocated To Grow A Thriving Network Of Applications And Users...

would be great if you could have a read, and IF you feel it’d be a great idea that’d serve the community, forward to anyone in particular you know who might be in a position of influence to advance the discussion.

not sure who exactly would be in charge of exploring such possibilities and making decisions to implement initiatives like this, though as you’re one of the top witnesses, might be reasonable to expect you’d know - and would be awesome if you could help to pass this along, should you feel inclined.



So witnesses actually code and update Steemit??

Some people do, most don't.

A large amount of the steemit.com code is done by Steemit Inc. staff.

Most witnesses work on their own individual projects, for example I built AnonSteem, Steem-in-a-box, and steemfeed-js.

If you need help with developing sth, maybe i can be of help ;) Thanks for the post, will vote you for witness

I think I have a nwe understanding

I think you have a newt understanding.

I have set myself the target to become a witness in the next weeks - I have not fully checked what I have to do but I just want to experiment and give it a try.

I don't have much knowledge about witnesses. Why witnesses need this code? Do they have like a server that always online?

Yes. They do.


wow, awesome!!!!

This post is really useful, thank you very much for this update.
We hope that there are no problems and that everything is fine.
Steemit is a great platform and really deserves to work at its best.

And here I wanted to go to bed... Let's go do what a witness does best: update his/her node!

Not surprise that steemit is not 100% secure from hacking because nothing is guaranteed. However, security measures still need to be in place, at least ones as the platform is rolled because members have invested time and $ and effort on this platform. Providing members with a long-string password doesn’t guaranteed superb security. It might reduce the risk yet not totally secure as innovative hacking programs and hackers are flooding the internet, which is in itself a gateway to all kind of data. Double-edged sword, no pain no gain.

I like what you do and have just put you on my witness list:-)
Have a great day:-)

Thank you very much for this update.

Do I have to go for a rebuild?

@someguy123 I know this isn't the place for it, but my friend tried to make an account on Anon Steem yesterday and he sent you 0.1999 LTC by accident, it was supposed to be 0.2 LTC. The Anon Steem site went down and the account wasn't created, probably because the amount was wrong. He emailed you and tried to contact you on Steemit chat, I was wondering if you'd be able to get in touch and help him out?

Thanks for witness update providing....i appreciate this security.
carry on my dear.......

As per the recent security announcement from Steemit

Could you provide a little more information regarding the announcement, please.

Hello @someguy123

This is such an important update that no one who truly care about steem ecosystem would want to miss.

Ever since I learnt of importance of voting witnesses, I not only voted for up to 26 witnesses, I did a post informing my followers of what I learnt about voting for witness. And a lot of people have been contacting me to guide them on how to vote for witnesses.

Of course, I will be coming up with a scheme that will encourage people to vote for witnesses and I will duly inform the community when I am through.

With this piece, you have not only earned my witness vote but also those of my community @euronation.

Good post, very informative. Thanks

Mine looks looks like yours

Update successful
Thanks for the heads up.

@cryptwo is all updated and ready to go

As always, thanks for the update and continued support @someguy123!

I had a vibe that the steem blockchain would be targeted by scams, hacks and fraudsters.

siempre hay que prevenirse! cuidarse de los hacker! excelentes recomendaciones.

Amazing post. Though I'm just a new steemian. Wouldn't mind if your next post talks about enlightenment to the newbies of the system so as to make the system captivating for us. #Anticipating

Hey mate, I recently removed the vast majority of my witness votes (including yours) when I heard there was a push from the top 20 to intervene in the SBD market. Assuming SBD and STEEM were to remain stable otherwise; manipulative action would reduce my income by 75%, costing me more than $200 000 over the next year.

Where do you stand on this issue?

i am witnesses actually code and update Steemit??

I updated my serverwitness update.jpg

I am waiting for your support, mister
