Broadcast myself to be a new witness of GREAT STEEM COMMUNITY

in #witness-category3 years ago (edited)

I am writing my first post in a city called Brisbane of Australia, I live happy life here, you are all welcome to come and visit to enjoy beautiful sunshine and amazing beaches!


The reason I join this community is to expand the influence of STEEM in Australia, as when I look at the distribution of nodes across the world, there is absolutely zero node list in Australia.

I feel obligated to expand this amazing crypto-currency community to Australia, let more people to recognize the value STEEM offers, and popularize STEEM in my society.

I already purchased a high quality and performance-competitive server from Google.

And want to contribute my best effort to STEEM community, and keen to dedicate to be a reliable witness, I guarantee.

Google Cloud n1-standard-4
4 vCPU (Intel Haswell)
26 GB memory + 64GB SWAP TEMPFS memory

Looking forward to your votes: @songcaoxian



where did you find your list of nodes?

There should not be a list of witness nodes. No one would reveal their witness node IP address.
However, there is a list of seed nodes and there are chances (not 100%) that the witness node is in the same country as the seed node from the same owner:

i think he was asking as this new witness says there isn't a seed node based in Australia when in fact is one already running there

That's where I was confused, the author only said "there is absolutely zero node list in Australia" but what node is he talking about? RPC nodes? Seeds Nodes? Witness Nodes?

If he wanted to contribute with a seed node in Australia, he could do it without setting up a witness operation. But he went and setup a witness node and no seed node, which is why I was assuming he was talking about the locations of witness nodes.

ah i see you point, agreed, there is surely multiple witnesses nodes running in Australia probably including yours (good job by the way), but to my knowledge only 1 reliable full seed node that i know off (probably belonging to Abb), so that's what I though he didn't know about

Cheers mate.
Just to clarify, mine is running in Europe but operated from Australia 😆. Servers in AU are too expensive and I'm not sure if the latency would be low enough. There is no need to have a witness node in AU anyway. An RPC node maybe, if you are running a local project that needs faster access to the data from the blockchain and then a seed node to help it sync faster if needs be.

I see you still have some witness votes left... hint hint 🤣

LOL ... hint taken! condition, you must put in entries into @comedyopenmic and help build great communities here on Steem blockchain ..... being a geek is not enough to get votes, but i know you know that ;)

Come join us in COM Discord:

I’ve been trying for days to think of something I could write or record for an entry but maaaannnnn, I’m no comedian. I started watching comedy tutorial on YouTube but could not get an inspiration. That will probably be the greatest challenge of my life. Do you have any good learning material?

hey mate, I don't agree your idea of no need to have witness nodes. That's something makes seed node necessary, if no witness nodes, what's the point of set up seed nodes... We need more people like us to join Steem.

hey mate, I was talking about seed node in Australia, which is zero, from the map.

I started myself as a witness node, am keen to set up a seed node though. sorry about the confusion.

once you installed the steem-docker, and open the config file with nano, you will be able to find the whole list, and add "##" in front of the nodes that is slow for you. hope it helps, if still not solved, post here again

That's not all the nodes.

And you're running a witness node but you're refering to seed nodes in your data. It's like saying there aren't any apples in my house so I went out and bought Oranges.

It doesn't make sense.
