Intent to become a Witness
Today I declare my intent to become a witness to the awesome community of Steemit. I hope to be trusted with this responsibility.
I'm a frequent user of Steemit, and joined just a little after its launch last year. During this time I have tried to contribute with some good content post as well as curating other good authors. One goal that I set when joining Steemit a year ago was to set up a Witness, and today I have decided to finally do this.
My Activity in the Cryptospace
I've been floating around the cryptospace for quite some time, back in 2013 with trading Bitcoins on Kraken, always reading and gaining more knowledge. Spring 2016 I found a new family when I joined the Gridcoin Network. Something that quite fast grew to one of my favorite coins for me. Today I run the blockexplorer for Gridcoin, Gridcoinstats. I've become a proud member of the team of Gridcoin and just trying to be there, help and contribute as we all do.
Just another few months after that I found Steemit. I've been trying to bring valuable content to Steemit, but curating and leaving positive comments to others are most of what I enjoy doing. I love the feeling of Steemit, that we are one big crowd of people wanting the same time but in different ways and with different stories. This making Steemit my very much number two favorite place to be part of.
So, why becoming a witness?
As a frequent visitor of Steemit I love the family warmth of it and that we try to take care of one another. So I wish to step up, be of use and contribute with my skills and make sure that this place stays on the same track towards greatness. I look forward to a great journey in many new fields that I can gain knowledge in and hopefully contribute to something valuable to the community.
Half of the Top 100 witness list is horribly outdated.
This makes me sad to see, and we need new witnesses that can step in and shoulder the responsibility to take care of that.
I hope I can gain your trust in becoming one of the nodes on the witness list that You trust.

I will set up a full seed node in the coming weeks
Another witness will also be put up when I clime the latter.
Many thanks to all the great people like @steemed, @l0k1, @bitcoinparadise, @timcliff, @aggroed, @officialfuzzy and many more on the #witness and #witness-category sections that inspired me to take this leap with their great words and tutorials on various things.
