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 https://whaleshares.io/~witnesses 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.
