Does that really reduce operational costs? Since block time is constant, I think that would just give more income to remaining witnesses, not reduce cost.

Not saying this is a bad thing, just pointing it out.

Today, I voted for the "spokesperson" proposal as well as for the "compliance" proposal as I see them desperately needed. The people that I work with won't work for free but have the knowledge and desire to bring good to BitShares.

Secondly, i want to clarify that I removed the votes for the BSIP18 worker as well as for the Steemfest worker. The reason is that those are fully funded by now (in bitUSD) through escrow by the bitshares blockchain foundation

The accounting is all public:  http://www.bitshares.foundation/accounting

most recent books look like this: 

In 30001-bitshares.foundation .. it says that there are 23kUSD in escrow for the bsip18 worker .. and 6.666 USD in escrow for the steemfest worker

I have approved

* 201712-infrastructure, and
* 2017-12-blockchainacademy

We desperately need the first one, and to me, the second one is a bargain considering the changes of getting into university education.

Hello, dear xeroc.
We've noticed, that you have unvoted openledger-dc witness. Came here, to check the reason, as well, as checked witness chat and didn't find any explanations. During the last 1.5y our witness was one of the most stable and its support was quite responsive, so is there some serious reasons for taking voice back? At the same time 3 of bottom active witnesses are missing blocks and still active.
Thanks in advance.

Your feeds for CNY were among those that I deemed inaccurate .. chinese community members approached me to tighten up the peg .. all I can do is disapprove workers that are farer away from the actualy price than others ...
If you fix your feeds you can get voted back.


Furthermore, I have approved the BTS liquidity worker that wants to write software for automated trading. Looking forward to see how quickly they can produce high quality code.

Also, I have removed my votes from the blockchain-acedemy worker since it is fully funded now  ..

Even though the spokesperson worker is fully funded now as well, I do not remove my votes to keep it up for representative purposes. The BBF will no longer trade those BTS into USD for that worker.

Hi xeroc,
     I set up a witness node on the testnet (zhaomu-test), can you vote for me so I can start to test the price feed.
    And also, can you consider my witness proposal? https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,25678.0.html

I've removed my support from committee-member `openledgerdc` since openledger started setting
a default voting proxy for its customers and breaks the long-standing social contract of no-voting
of exchanges with customer funds. This is unfortunate but OpenLedger wasn't able to present
sufficient motivations for this move and after discussion, couldn't be convinced to reconsider this
position.

This is, of course, a personal opinion, but I cannot accept businesses to set default voting behavior
for its customers.

For those wondering, the `bitshareseurope` account which is set as default_proxy account, too, does
not vote.

This is good info for me. Not your personal opinion and decision as that is ... well, personal; but on my last worker proposal i asked Ronny if he can vote for it. Never got a response, i will take this opportunity to apologize for that, i didn't know how it was and i saw the account voting before i thought they were a new big proxy and tried to contact them as i did with all the rest.
I was also close to ask you for a vote with bitshareseurope when i realized it was yours, at the end it was not needed but i now know it will not be possible and why.

thank you for the transparency.

thanks, great to know how you consider a "company" - the de facto bitshares exchange OpenLedger, and this is not my words, but rather the creator or BitShares who said this. It has to be very clear that we are not an exchange as we have no access to manipulate the transactions on the DEX which is clearly the definition of an exchange, and until now we have offered a valuable service to all bts community where we are until now still at a minus overall for providing gateways allowing people to access a safe haven like bitshares stablecoins or bts itself or same procedure for leaving again. There is no doubt that this is not done out of pure charity, however, it is clear that we are providing a valuable support for the community to evolve and we do it with the face that allows us to constantly act for the benefit of the community.

What you decide to do personally is up to you, and you are right it is definitely personal and it is also personal when I remove my support from your own committee post, thank you for perhaps stating a discussion as to who does what and for the benefits of whom in whatever is done for bitshares, I think it could in fact become an interesting "soap opera" and I could be writing a lot more right now, but choose not to.

And lets be clear, it is only customers if they use the gateways provided by OpenLedger, and with more than 170 000 signups already, it is clear that less than 10 000 of these are in fact active, so what we are in fact providing is a support from the people not trading or even active making use of these accounts where they may have been not used and all for the benefit of bts. And the customers are in fact also the customers of the bts community as it is a service offered to the community and definitely also customers to all the OBITS holders who benefit minimum 50% of all revenues.

FYI, I have had multiple discussions with clockwork during the last couple months and respect and
trust him more than enough to approve his newly created committee membership. Looking forward
to rattle those committee members that passed away
