My main motivation to start running a witness was to take part in the ongoing discussion about the future of steemit at what I thought was a critical time. My intention was, and still is, to promote a better distribution of rewards without compromising the stability of the network.
If you are a new to Delegated proof of stake (DPOS) and you are wondering what a witness is I invite you to read this post, which outlines the importance of the steemit system and how we can all influence the future of the platfrom.
In this sense, my decision to become a witness is as philosophical as it is technical, I would like to represent my voters in the “witness table” and help the steemit founders and developers improve the platform for all its existing and future users.
I also see steemit expanding into different communities and for that we need to promote other languages. I support language tags and I try to always write, read and vote for posts under the #spanish tag. To help spanish users find and promote their own posts I created @steemiobot twitter account and telegram channel, @steemiobot automatically broadcasts all the posts published with the #spanish tag.
I am also the creator and promoter of the @steemfund account, which helps steemians fund their projects by either crowdfunding them with community votes or trough a p2p lending system on steemit. You can find out more about steemfund here.
