Witness Update - Top 20 Witness

in #steempeaklast year

TOP 20

This morning @proxy.token (Korean community) voted for 6 new block producers and @steempeak was one of those... we joined 5 others as new top 20 witnesses.

Thank you very much to everyone who support us

Technically smooth sailing so far

Right now the system we have worked on for our witness server and tweaks we've made over the last 14 months with our monitoring system is working great. However we are gonna use some of that block producer rewards to do some other things to make sure it remains smooth sailing.

SteemPeak has always been financially self-sufficient even without block-producer rewards however we're looking forward to powering up the account at a faster rate.


We're right on the edge of 20 and there's no guarantee we stay there...

UPDATE: since I started writing this post we're now at #17

So we're asking our community, readers and those who love what we've done in the last 18 months to consider voting for our witness.


  • TECHNICALLY SOUND: We have produced blocks for over a year and have been very successful only missing 19 blocks in that 14 month period and most of that was when everyone missed lots of blocks during the last blockchain halt.
  • SELF-SUFFICIENT: Our business plan and operations has no dependency on witness rewards... or any delegation either. We run at a net positive after paying bills almost since we started and have powered up consistently.
  • FEATURE SET: We have added hundreds of features to our STEEM INTERFACE since we started May of 2018. Check out the video below where @jarvie shares dozens of bullet points as to what features and tools we've created on our time on Steem.
  • OUR PLANS: Our goal is to make the site ready for full time influential content creators to feel comfortable to bring their millions of followers to Steem. So we're preparing the site to be ready for that and preparing strategy to market to them.

You can see what we've done and what we plan in this presentation at SteemFest 2019 by @jarvie

congratulations! You have my vote. It is important to have apps in the top rows and it is even more important that the business concept is not build on the rewards for this. Keep on your excellent work.

Where does this Top 20 Witness stand on Tron possession of Steemit Inc.?

I am on the recent steem witness forum sharing a lot of my thoughts about it, I also write my thoughts pretty openly here on steem and you can look at past comments.
If i can find some time and a really nice way to write about it I could share it on steempeak then i'll do so. One of the issues is writing about something that seems to have information constantly changing is hard to do right now.

In general I would say that steempeak's position is that we would like to see the chain move toward more independence... aka less dependencies on any one company or person. We would like to know and maybe have trustable re-assurances that they won't damage the chain with their large stake or try to usurp the branding of steem away from the community. If they can find a way to alleviate those concerns that's a huge step.

Awesome! Congrats on getting to top 20. You’re there because you listen to your users and are always updating your processes and service. Thanks! Not to mention all of the awesome things that come along with what you provide like Peakmonsters and Steempeak itself.

Thanks we're very proud of our responsiveness to all the users. Now we want to know what your non-steem friends will want of the site and make it the best place for all your friends and your fans.

Fantastic news, guys. Couldn't have happened to a better team. You're an asset to the chain. Wouldn't be the same without you, glad to see you getting the support you deserve.

Congrats on the top 20 position! Well deserved!

Very well deserved. You guys have done so much for improving the user experience here on the blockchain. Keep up the great work.

Congratulations. Already voting for you guys, but happy to see you up in the top 20, I think it is deserved.

We appreciate the vote of confidence. Nice way to start 2020

This is great to see. I am happy to watch applications breaking into the top 20. This is important since apps are putting a lot on the line to build their businesses.

Best team on the blockchain after the splinterlands team, as I am legally obligated to say. 😎😎

Nice, I hope you stay there for a while. You guys deserve it, Steempeak is the best!

Well deserved! You guys are one of many entities that certainly belong on top 20, congratulations! Hopefully you can stay!

It's great that you guys are there.

You ready for the politics?

I've been a supporter of the Steempeak witness for months since I jumped ship over from Busy! I don't see that changing in the foreseeable future :-D

Well we certainly plan on adding many more features to make your decision better and better.

Congratulations- that is fantastic progress. Will get my vote when I’m next on the computer.

I went to vote for you and found that I had already voted for you. ;-)

BTW, is it a glitch that SteemPeak wallets are no longer showing SBI information or is it intentional?

Hmmm i wonder if they have their API off at the moment... if we don't have that then we wouldn't show it. But i'll ask our developer if it happens to be something on our end.

That is awesome! Well done team, I've already voted for SteemPeak

I already vote for Steempeak's witness with all of my accounts.

Congratulations on making it to the top 20!

We certainly appreciate it!

Congratulations. I voted witnesses for steempeak on last year ✌

Congratulations for such an achievement.

Your team now has decision-power over Network Hardforks.

Hope some day I manage to get at least to the top 100 witnesses.

If anyone reading this wishes to help, I would be thankful for a vote.

congrats people, well deserved

Steempeak is so far the best STEEM front end with so much features. That's why I voted for you guys. I've also been using Peakmonsters and renting cards for a while too. Thanks for making all these great stuff. Also,

Congratulations for such kind of good achievement

That's some exciting news! Congrats!


Congrats, @steempeak :)

Congrats!!! ^^
Congratulations on being the main witness.
As a user of steem and a developer of steemcoinpan, I hope you will do better in the future. :)

Congratulations @steempeak!
Your post was mentioned in the Steem Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Pending payout - Ranked 1 with $ 45,41

Will be happy to add a vote to you. But see little point in posts like these. Especially when "the" witness vote was only out of coincidence that you were along the 6 closest to the top 20... A rather poor display of what supporting a witness should really be about (securing the chain, diversify/decentralize development, etc).

Thanks for taking the time to clarify the reasons for your down-vote.

We believe it's important to let our users and supporters know that our witness is now in the top 20 because:

  1. most of them will not check the witnesses ranking regularly
    1b. They voted for us so we believe (and the comments have shown) they are happy about this and believe it to be good news.
  2. We wanted to address that we are technically capable and things were going well.
    2b. Also address that we'll be doing more things to make sure it continues to be smooth sailing.
  3. To state that we are grateful for any more votes. (seeing that delegated proof of stake does take some promotion) And to list some of the benefits we bring to Steem and their experience.

We'd say these are the main reasons behind the post... it was not any statement of the actions of the voter that got us there and surprised us when we woke up that morning.

We are very close on the edge of top 20 we'd appreciate the votes so we can stay there and use the funds to make SteemPeak/Steem better.
