@bitrocker2020 Community witness Update

Finally found the time to sit down and upgrade my witness node to 0.21 which means its ready for HardFork 21 !

Looking forward for it to happen within the next 4 days and by the looks of things most witnesses has already upgraded their nodes. Here is the list of top 25 steem witnesses.

Change is Happening in HardFork 21

Yes there would be numerous changes on the next HardFork which has been discussed by many people and the one which would impact us as the residence of this blockchain would be the reward mechanism.

Some will get more, some will get less however the important thing is that the focus would now be on curation where the rewards are way much greater then before.

We would all be using our stakes to curate content and like any other HardFork , you may expect some people who would try to abuse the system, there would also be a lot of downvoting as the new HF do encourage to actually curate content by upvoting and also downvoting content which you deem undesirable.

Witness Vote Update

If you have not updated your Witness Vote for over 1 year, I do suggest that you go thru https://steemit.com/~witnesses and start taking a look at your Witness votes.

Some of you may still have votes on witnesses which are no longer operating their node. Or some of you may not be fully utilizing your witness votes. you can vote up to 30 witnesses and this does not effect your Voting Power / Mana in any way. It’s just telling the blockchain as to who you are empowering to be a witness

For example, @utopian-io still have about 7,684 votes on their witness and they have stop their nodes many months ago. Are you one of them ? To check which witness is still running and have updated to HF 21 head over to this link

What’s happening in TeamMalaysia

We are still a happy bunch of content creators which gets involved in almost all areas of the Steem blockchain. I have not run a large event this year however I think we would need to do one soon.

Instead as part of my Witness pledge to grow the community in Malaysia, I’ve collaborated with other parties to speak at events or just be there to support them and to promote Steem wherever I go.

Because of that, I’ve been invited to be in the first edition of Collectors Playing Cards .. which I’m very happy to be part of.

Moving forward, I think we do have a larger crowd heading over to STEEMFEST since Bangkok is just a 2 hours flight away. Making it the most affordable Steemfest to date ! For me that is.

Will also start organizing a few more events before the end of the year and looking at options on how we can go to the masses with min budgets.

Looking forward in meeting all the amazing people at Steemfest and this time, don’t need any winter clothes.

Cheers and have a great weekend !

Would the real Satoshi please stand up

Its been really big news as the claimed “real” Satoshi Nakamoto makes an appearance and wants to reveal himself after a decade of staying anonymous.

The REVEAL is suppose to happen in 3 parts and Part 1 got released just yesterday. Part 2 and Part 3 would be coming up within this week.

The reasoning behind this reveal is still yet to be announced which would be in Part 3 of his website.

https://satoshinrh.com/

Until now there is still no proof that this is the real Satoshi as he currently holds about 980k of Bitcoins where there has been no transaction on it.

So the big question still remains .. is he the real Satoshi ? If he is .. all he has to do is just to move any amount of BTC from that wallet to anywhere … really does not matter nor does it matter how much. It would be proof of ownership I would guess.

Market Impact?

We are just days away from the full reveal, however, would you think that it would impact the market stability? Would it pump bitcoin or will it crash and burn ? or would it just be another social experiement which someone is doing and does not have any significant market change.

Afterall … for a billionaire , he did use only $1 to buy his domain. So lets wait and see what happens once all 3 parts has been revealed.

Who knows … perhaps he is going to distribute his 980k of BTC to everyone ! but hey …. anything could happen…

So its my lil Boy’s birthday

Today I celebrated with my lil boy his 10th Year Old birthday…. its amazing on how fast they grow up. I guess all parents feels happy yet a bit sad watching their kids grow up.

I’m blessed as I’m able to watch them grow from the tiny lil baby they were and gone thru with them the ups and downs in their live so far. I guess its because I choose to sway away from the 9 to 5 jobs to be with them.

I do remember someone once asked me that when we are about the draw our last breath, what would be our last thoughts? So I decided that no matter what, I would spend as much time as I could to watch my kids grow up and be with them as they turn into young adults.

I do know that I would cherish every single moment and memories of the time spent with them. Yes its never easy as they can be angels one minute and monsters the next … however its part of growing up I guess.

I’m thankful to god for having a really supportive lovely wife and 2 amazing kids… We’ve been thru a lot over many years together.

Happy 10th Birthday Lil Chris … aka .. @bitrockerjr
