I finally get around writing a few lines.
First off, I appreciate your service especially what you contribute to the German community.
1. what for do you spend your delegates income? (e.g charity, VPS, beer etc.)
The Charity delegates (bitshares-charity.org) will spend almost 100% of their
income towards charitable ambitions that benefit man kind. The only reduction
will basically be server rent, domain rent and whatever costs are produced by
the network (transaction fees, registration update fees etc).
2. whats your burn-rate and why?
I am burning 0% for obvious reasons!
3. where is your delegate located?
Currently the main server is in Los Angeles (VPS) with a backup server in
Germany (dedicated, privately funded).
4. whats your machine/connection/redundancy specs?
It's a VPS: 2GB RAM; 30GB SSD storage; 1 CPU cores; 3TB Transfer/month
The backup machine is a thick client (dedicated machine): Intel Core i7-920 Quad Core; 8 GB DDR3 RAM; 2x 750 GB SATA II HDD ; 10TB monthly traffic
5. "short" up to 300 character description why are you running a delegate or many of them
BitShares-Charity.org is a not for profit project and 100% of all funding go
directly to helping people in need. We operate several DPOS delegates to secure
the BitShares ecosystem. These delegates earn fees by the participants of the
P2P Distributed Autonomous Corporations (DAC). We commit ourself to (publicly)
pay these fees to charitable organisations, such as:
* Satoshi Forest
* Sean's Outpost
* Free Software Foundation
* Electronic Frontier Foundation
* Khan Academy
* Amani Kinderdorf
* and more to come
Every donation will be recored on open books and will be published at
"charity-delegate.org" (work in progress).
6. are you related to other delegate operators?
Yes, I am. The charity delegates are non-profit. However I am running
*.delegate.xeroc as FOR-PROFIT delegates in order to compensate for my (spare)
time and effort I put into the charity delegates. There is no need to approve
theses delegates unless you want to support me financially.
7. how many delegates are in your control?
Over the time (early member, and participant in the first 11 test runs) I
registered 25 delegates on the blockchain from which only 6 are currently (Aug.
2014) actively producing blocks. Three of which are non-profit charity delegates.
I plan to release the article on September 1 in 2014.
Your offers and delegate facts will be accepted till August 24!
Puh .. not too late ..
So post your delegate facts here or pm me.
If you want to take one of the 3 paid positions on the article you can

"We are all part of the BitShares ecosystem."
And we all enjoy the ride
Thanks for your effort on this!
