My Witness Announcement
Who am I?
An experienced private sector employee with a decent track record in a reputed Oil and Gas firm. I have started dabbling in crypto in 2016 and since then have been absolutely fascinated by it. After understanding Bitcoin, I quickly moved to other cryptocurrencies that, albeit younger and not as established, had the freedom to move and innovate faster.
Personally, am a father of a lil angel and a lovable husband living a happy life what we have with us. I love photographs very much cauz it can speaks louder than a 1000 word article. That's what I love to click whatever comes in front of me, you can say Hobby. To more about me just go through my Introduction Post here.
Very odd, I thought, considering I have never been a witness. Sure, I've mucked around with mining before, but I never expected to be scheduled for producing a block. Couple of days before @bilalhaider told me to run a witness node, but I don't have much idea about its technical side and even he don't have time to help me out. Special thanks to @fiftysixnorth witness who help me very patiently to make this happened.
Obviously, I plan to operate a reliable witness with as little downtime as possible. However, I also want to contribute to making the network as secure, safe and efficient as possible. I want to give back to the community and position myself to provide more ways for the community to interact and engage. I want more responsibility.
It is my goal to spread and support Bearshares, attracting and retaining more users, bringing more value to the platform and community. Being a witness is the next logical step for me to do my part, along with all the other talented witnesses, and help the community continue to grow.
Most of you are familiar with #weekchallenge and 7day Bearshares Promotion, I guess. Both are initiated and run by me to support Bearshare user to make them active in this community with quality content spread bearshares out to the world. You can check out the weekchallenge initiation post and 7Day Bearshares Promotion here to know more about that. Bearshares is in it's early stage Promotional activity is more important along with good investors to the community. As a user and well wisher of Bearshares, I will try my best to bring more people and investors here.
