I want to start with myself
I started my journey here at Steem in July 2016, it is almost five years ago
During that time, I have met many people around the world who have become my friends here on this platform.
In February 2020, the World of Xpilar community was formed
after several requests from my friends to have their own community where we could post and share posts about art, photography, travel letters and create competitions. Interest in it was well received and the World of Xpilar community grew fast
We were one of the few local communities that did not move to Hive during the split and we fought hard for Steem and Steemit as a blog platform to survive.
We are today the largest local community on steemit with 9,903 subscribers from around the world and 160 active posts every day
To be able to run such a large local community requires a lot of work and planning. Without a skilled team, this would not be possible.
A big thank you to my team, they are also moderators in the World of Xpilar community
10 days ago I announced my witness:
I want to contribute even more and I now want to announce that @xpilar.witness is mine and that I am running this witness
Thanks to everyone who voted for my witness "xpilar.witness"
We started in place 197 of the witnesses, now we are in place 36 after such a short time
Do you also want to vote for "xpilar.witness"
Voting for me:
https://steemit.com/~witnesses type in xpilar.witness and click VOTE
Ask your witness, who they are and what they do
Here are the top 20 witnesses today
I also invite all other witnesses to tell who they are and what they do
What are Steem witnesses?
The Steem blockchain requires a set of people to create blocks and uses a consensus mechanism called delegated proof of stake, or DPOS. The community elects 'witnesses' to act as the network's block producers and governance body. There are 20 full-time witnesses, producing a block every 63-second round. A 21st position is shared by the backup witnesses, who are scheduled proportionally to the amount of stake-weighted community approval they have. Witnesses are compensated with Steem Power for each block they create.
Without witnesses, you would not have received rewards or been able to post. Witnesses are elected by us in the community and it is your duty to vote. Each Steem Blochain account can vote for 30 witnesses
