Recently I decided to take a step forward in my involvement with Hive. Nothing more & nothing less than helping on the validation layer with my own witness node: @empo.witness
Hive has given me a lot, so why not give something back...? It's the least an individual can do for a place/ecosystem which I'm already used to calling 'home'.
Who I am?
If you've been around the Leofinance umbrella, probably you might have come across one of my posts somewhere, since I've been posting from this account since mid-2019 approx.
Steem Hive history comes since long before, around mid-late 2017. When I discovered HIVE and fell into the rabbit hole I have not been able to detach myself ever since.
I'm one of those 'self-made' crypto traders who learned his lesson the hard way. Got financially wrecked in 2018, recovered, and surged from its own ashes through a lot of sweat in 2020-2021(and a few tears along the way...).
In mid-2021 I launched my own project ('SEED') inspired by other ventures in the Hive-Engine ecosystem like SPI & UTOPIS. So far it's been an awesome experience while I'm still building the foundations and I can't be more grateful with the Hive community overall.
I felt that setting up a 'backup witness' was the natural step forward. Also in Hive Engine, since I'm running my own business on its infrastructure.
CPU: 4 Core
RAM: 16 GB
SSD: 500 GB
OS: Ubuntu 20.04
Most of my Hive activity is related to my own project & the SEED token. Logically this won't change but I'm always looking to support other communities & empower other builders.
I notice that although trading & asset management is a big 'core' of my daily activity/thinking I'm slowly shifting to a 'buidl mentality'; & surely I WANT to keep building things on Hive, since I feel this is my home chain.
I would be very grateful to receive your vote as a witness. A big thank you for your support.
