Update on what is happening behind the scene

ijmmaiwitnessPosted to Public4 months ago3 min read


The website is more or less running smoothly. Some data still needs to be fine tuned. For instance, retrieving witness votes info on the User Information page, takes too long, and results in no info. This, and other issues, will be taking care of after the next update. The files for this update are already present, but when I switched to those new files for a moment, a lot of errors occurred. All errors are solvable, I am sure, and it will even be fun to hunt them down, but right now I am working on something else, so it just will have to wait for a little while.

Offline projects

More and more of my time is spent on blockchain related activities, either by being a witness, developing tools, writing posts, hosting contests, helping people to find their way on the forum (using Discord or comments to posts), and last but not least, test the platform software.

This is wonderful to do, great way to learn new things, but doesn't pay any bill, this is all volunteer work. Therefore I also still develop software for my "off blockchain" customers. Which means, from time to time I am less active on Whaleshares. I am never leaving though.

New Project

At the moment I am working on a token reward project. There is one active already, but as a programmer I very much like to depend on my own code. Don't want to have to wait for someone else to fix things when the system errors. The system will be different from the current one, in many ways. Stay tuned and you will learn more about it.

Eventually I will have my own token. That is what the system will be used for, but if other token issuers want to join, that will be possible too.

Powering Down

Today I will start to powerdown. Not much, just 200 Whalestake per week. With my witness server enabled I earn ~240 Whalestake per day. My Whalestake will still grow, my reward value will increase, I will be more than able to give people a decent reward on their posts.

Mainly to support the platform

The WLS will not leave the platform any time soon.
I want to have some WLS at hand to:

  • help others, who suffer from DaBa shortage,
  • use some to powerup the Whaleguardians Pod account,
  • (in case of an emergency) be able to sell some to pay server bills.

Use your witness votes wisely

Jump over to the Block Producer / Witness page and cast your witness votes. Simply click on the (^) up arrow next to the witness names of your choice (consider voting for "krazywitness" and "ijmmaiwitness") and supply your private active key to lock in your vote. Refresh the page in case your vote doesn't seem to stick.
