This was a nice Friday surprise for me, I was always thinking how hard to climb into top20, then it became a reality.
I've been monitoring my primary and backup servers after the change, and happy to say that everything is smooth so far.
Vote for my witness
Being a top20 witness is one thing, staying there is another thing. :) Lineup between 15-25 is more challenging now, I need your vote to secure my position.
Short term plans
Planning to vitalize the "Hivemind SQL service" project without the SPS. I've been distributing SQL accounts (around 15+ users so far) to experiment the need and TBH, it's not much though. Maybe I can continue with this semi-automated service.
Planning to investigate to serve a full RPC public node. (Or fat node with Hivemind support) This is known that we lack public RPC nodes for applications and developers. A fat node should be more than affordable with the top20 pay.
Besides these, of course, I keep my STEEM related projects, tools, libraries updated and will be testing and following the new STEEM versions, hard forks very closely.
