svk31 Delegate Bid
« on: July 27, 2014, 04:10:41 pm »

I've finally managed to get my newly acquired BTSX out of btc38, so I've got my new delegates up and running on a Digital Ocean SSD server. I'm a longtime follower of Bitshares/Invictus who unfortunately started buying AGS/PTS just after the snapshot for BTSX, which is why I've had to wait a bit to get my delegates set up.

My delay in getting BTSX unfortunately meant that someone squatted my forum handle, so my new accounts will use the main account name svk31, the 31 standing for the department in France where I currently reside. I was a participant in most of the dry runs, and aim to provide a reliable service!

I'm a firm believer in Bitshares/I3, and believe cryptocurrency in general will revolutionize our society in the years to come. I want to be part of this revolution, which is why I'm actively teaching myself Javascript and learning about nodejs and angularjs in order to be able to offer something to the community. Unfortunately I still have a day-job as an engineer, but I aim to transition fulltime into crypto currencies focusing primarily on the Bitshares ecosystem. I'm quite heavily invested in AGS/PTS/BTSX, and I hope you will help me help make Bitshares a success!

Proceeds will go firstly to funding the necessary servers, any additional profits will be funneled back into the ecosystem to help it grow. More info will be available once I get a website up and running.

Please approve:

Update 01/09/2014:
As part of my delegate bid I'm currently running three servers on Digital Ocean, which will hopefully be paid for with the delegate revenues:
  • Delegates server - Amsterdam
  • Seed node - Amsterdam: network_add_node "" add
  • Website server - New York:
As you may have noticed I've been hard at work on my website, it's getting a fair bit of traffic and I hope you've found it useful. I've had three delegates in the top 101 for about a week now, one got outvoted yesterday but that's ok, it's good to see new delegates come in!

The reliability of all three of my delegates has been very good, I've missed 3,1 and 0 blocks respectively,  meaning all three have a score of >99.6%

Just letting you know I have a V0.1 version of a website up which at the moment has the following features:
  • Live updates of delegates info
  • Search for your delegate and see your stats, or look up others
  • Reliability, current rank in the delegates list, number of votes and some other stats
  • Basic block explorer showing new blocks in real time

You can check it out here:

It's in an early phase of development, if there's any info you'd like me to add feel free to ask and I'll see what I can do!

Edit: New version is live, major new inclusion is the block explorer!. Still working on delegate stats, but ran into a problem with storing the output from the batch api, will work on that next when I get time. Going away for a few weeks on holiday soon though so won't have a lot of time I'm afraid.

Delegates updated to 0.31

Just a quick update, I'm currently an elected delegate, occupying that precarious 101st spot!!

My pay rate is at 80%, proceeds will support hosting for my block explorer website as well as the delegate server, and support further development on the site and any new projects.

If you like what I'm doing, please vote for me, I need your support!

This post is now obsolete, if you've voted for my *.svk31 delegates in the past please consider changing your votes for my new delegate:


Please see this thread for more info:

The old delegates will be taken offline once they're out of the top 101. Thanks for your support!
