My witness is alive

last month


It is official


After nearly a week, @deranged-witness is officially up and running and has been witnessing blocks for about 18 hours now. I could not have done this without the help of @lexikon082 of @lexiwitness (vote for their team, they are awesome), @chronocrypto, @kennybll, and @ceruleanblue. All of these witnesses answered questions for me and helped trouble shoot problems that we were having, but @lexikon082 was a massive help throughout the whole process.

I did an in-depth Witness Introduction Post from my witness account, but I just wanted to make all of the followers of my main account aware of the fact that my witness is live and if they felt so inclined to support it, that can go to and vote for me.

One of the main points that I want to reiterate from my witness intro post is my love for building up the community. I think witnesses can play a huge role in helping to retain people on the platform by keeping the people engaged with different community efforts. While we need community witnesses, we still need technical witness to keep up with development and keep the updates moving forward.

I am community oriented. I believe that a good balance of technical and community witnesses is important for a successful platform. We need technical witnesses like @chronocrypto, @kennybll-witness, @intelliwitness and @black-man. At the same time, we need amazing community witnesses like @powerpicswitness, @krazywitness, @artwhale-witness and @lexiwitness.

I am looking forward to where this journey takes all of us and I want to thank everyone for their support. I have a lot of things planned for the community here. A strong community is essential to the success of this platform.

Awesome! Voted for you Wes, and the team I have not had my vote yet! :)

Congrats, upvoted + followed

I am really surprised at how quickly you are already producing blocks. We learned a lot doing this set up as we had to do some things differently but the knowledge building continues. The challenge I am looking forward to is managing a hard hard fork without missing any blocks. The learning curve is real but with persistence we can tackle and defeat the challenge.


I really couldn't have done it without your help. There were so many hurdles on this one with all of the issues over the past week.


Lol. The first official Whaleshares Gallagher almost really happened.

Congrats and good luck! Looking forward to a nice life here on whaleshares! =D


Thank you. This platform is gonna be great for all of us

Thought I commented on this but I guess it was over the call lol!
Knowing of your efforts on steemit, this is one welcome move! For the peeps on whaleshares! 💛

glad to see you are up and running again, thanks for the great work you guys are doing


Thank you for your support. We have big plans for the community here.

GFood stuff man, well done. I just got the witness pack today. I have a monero rig that is doing nothing at the moment so I think I will have a look at getting a witness node set up for whaleshares. The steemit one was just crazy with the ram requirement. Did you go with a cloud server or are you hosting yourself?

Just gave you my vote too man. You're at 27 now! Not a bad move in the last week!
