Great introduction, roelandp and welcome to the BitShares community.
It's a perfect timing to get yourself acquainted with the tech.

Would you be open to help organize a BitShares-dedicated event in Munich sometime?

That would be awesome @roelandp did a fantastic job with steemfest, Munich is the perfect location too.

Dear Bitshares community! Some of you have already voted my witness roelandp, thank you! In this topic I will introduce myself, my witness server portfolio and what I intend to add to the Bitshares community.

Who am I?
My name is RoelandP from Amsterdam. I am a developer of (mostly) mobile apps and in the crypto world I have been very active on Steemit by launching several Steem related apps as well as an app overview site called SteemTools. Since about 2003 I make a living by making sites & apps and some photoshopping / designing for my  parents' pancake restaurant on the side :)

I have studied Hotelschool in The Hague and made my first homepage in 1996 after which I got hooked on coding and learned it through the internets. Next to coding I love to kitesurf and I am since 1 year a dad of our son, who is slowly learning to sleep during the nights and together with my gf we run a small Poop Emoji webshop.

After my study I have worked at several festivals and organised some hackathons like Music Hackday Amsterdam. Last year I organised SteemFest in Amsterdam, which was a blast!

I've been running as an active witness for Steem & Golos for a while now and have been supporting the Bitshares network since late September last year with a dedicated server public seednode on seed.roelandp.nl:1776 (listed on @wackou's seednode statuspage and hardcoded in the bitshares sourcecode)

My current server portfolio setup for Bitshares is as follows:

Public Seed:
  • Type: Dedicated
  • Processor: Intel Xeon D-1521
  • Cores: 4
  • Ram: 32 GB DDR4
  • HDD: 2 x 2 TB
  • Connection: 1 Gbit/s
  • Location: Canada

Witness signing server:
  • Type: Dedicated
  • Processor: Intel i7-6700
  • Cores: 4
  • Ram: 64 GB DDR4
  • HDD: 2 x 250 GB SSD
  • Connection: 1 Gbit/s
  • Location: Germany

Backup witness signing server:
  • Type: Dedicated
  • Processor: Intel Xeon D-1531
  • Cores: 6
  • Ram: 32 GB DDR4
  • HDD: 2 x 250 GB SSD
  • Connection: 300 Mbit/s
  • Location: France

Backup Seed:
  • Type: Dedicated
  • Processor: Intel i7-6700
  • Cores: 4
  • Ram: 64 GB DDR4
  • HDD: 2 x 250 GB SSD
  • Connection: 1 Gbit/s
  • Location: Germany

Public Websocket node - btsws.roelandp.nl/ws:
  • Type: Dedicated
  • Processor: Intel i7-6700
  • Cores: 4
  • Ram: 64 GB DDR4
  • HDD: 2 x 500 GB SSD
  • Connection: 1 Gbit/s
  • Location: Finland

Test VPS's readily available:
  • Location: Netherlands (Amsterdam, Transip.nl)
  • Location: USA (Chicago, Rackspace.com)
  • Location: UK (London, Atlantic.net)

Additional Backup VPS's (if needed) can be setup through my Google Cloud and Amazon Webservices accounts on which I have run the graphene software before.

I have been experimenting with the pricefeed software from @xeroc and together with @iHashFury I setup the Altcap.XDR which we are both publishing every other half an hour. I am ready to fire the "regular" pricefeed updates.

What value can I add to the Bitshares community?
  • Thrustworthy witness with reliable infrastructure. I have missed 5 blocks on Steem and 1 on Golos in half a year of active signing.
  • Fresh blood!
  • Coding experience: PHP, javascript, python, mysql. Helped out @fav with a referral code script and @iHashFury with code reviewing the Altcap.XDR script. I've made available on my Github a Steem Witness Monitoring script and a Golos Pricefeed script
  • Creativity, see a sample of my Steem Apps by visiting SteemTools.com and search for 'roelandp'.
  • Event experience: As said, I organised SteemFest in Amsterdam last year with the support of many and about 200 attendees, which was a blast! Would love to set something like this up for Bitshares (or a combo) one (not to far in the future) day!
  • Promote Bitshares: (don't we all :D). Past 6 months I was invited and I have presented Steem on 2 (non crypto) events in presentation slots and panel discussion. For future talks I will incorporate more time for Bitshares when invited. Additionally I am working on a UIA which I reveal soon and think it can trigger some nice promotion for Bitshares!
