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
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 "220.127.116.11:1776" add
- Website server - New York: www.bitsharesblocks.com
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%
