@dsound witness update: All nodes upgraded to v0.20.8 of Steem blockchain.

in #witness-category5 years ago

Hi Steemian friends! :)

Probably you already heard about DSound somewhere here in Steem... but if not you'll get to know about it just now!

What is DSound?

DSound is a decentralized web application, developed in Javascript and React, that allows anyone to upload, listen and discover music and other sounds stored on top of the IPFS Network. It uses STEEM blockchain as a persistent database, so by posting their sounds the authors can earn rewards in cryptocurrency, when other users like their content, which can be exchanged easily to US Dollars, Euros or any other currency, with a look and feel very similar to Soundcloud.

Check DSound Intro post for more details

DSound is this! <3

@dsound witness update

Upgrade to v0.20.8 of Steem blockchain

The upgrade was smooth, no problems to register. It was not expectable either as this was just a small fix update.

Technical Infrastructure

Our infrastructure is still the same, no upgrade needed so far. Still 0 blocks missed and performance is great.

All boxes are behind firewalls, IDS and power redundancy systems. The server characteristics are subject to upgrade or revision as needed.

Requested the change of the seed node domain to @wackou, but still not changed in https://status.steemnodes.com/ . I am sure it will be changed soon by the website maintainer.

If you didn't do it yet, please move your vote from @prc witness to @dsound witness

We are now at #161 position in the witnesses ranking and finding our way through the hard way back to the top 100. It is very difficult but we are positive that we deserve to be back in top 100 as we dedicate much work to develop DSound and it also helps develop the Steem ecosystem, so fingers crossed!

Thanks a lot for all our early voters, who promptly moved their witness votes from @prc to @dsound:

Thanks a lot to all of you guys for believing in our witness project and for being part of DSound journey!

We also want ask once more to all our prior voters (of witness @prc that was disabled) to move your vote to @dsound witness so we can continue to offer stability to Steem network.

This is just a friendly reminder for our prior voters, so that you please do so when you can:

Our nodes are now running the latest version of the Steem Blockchain core code. But...

It is hard to be so down (#161) in the witnesses ranking, so we're counting on you to help pass the word to all your friends or simply by reposting this post, so we can get all the votes from the old witness @prc moved to @dsound witness and many more! :)

Thanks a lot to all fellow members of DSound tribe, all Steem members, developers and music addicts like us for your continued support and encouragement on this project! Without you we wouldn't be here assuming this responsibility. Big thanks to all of you!

Thanks man! A plastic vote is always welcome! ahahah :D

Thank you for doing great things

I tried twice to upload content on DSound but I don't know how to receive curation from DSound. :(

The bot seems to upvote only music and not podcast!

Please join the DSound discord and read the info there to know how it works... Thanks.

Keep doing such a nice worlk!!!

Thanks a lot for the nice words! :)

I'm so glad to be able to make this vote! @steemcreative recently shut down their server, so I switched that vote to you. I see you're currently voting for them as well, so you'll have a vote open... Actually, I see you have a few votes open yet. Might I suggest two?

@enginewitty is a community witness - #thealliance - that does a ton to curate and encourage creativity on the blockchain. He has also run music contests that were a big part of me choosing to share my music here, and I know there are countless people like me who are active and strong on the future of STEEM because of his efforts toward user retention. He also threw down some beats onstage at Steemfest3 with @edprivat, in case you caught that. ;)

@helpie is another community witness that does a lot to curate quality content. Quite a few from the Open Mic community are in Helpie, and a great collection of artists.

You've got some fantastic choices as witness votes already. Stoked to see @ura-soul and @oracle-d on there. Thanks for all you do! :)

Hi Katrina! :) Thanks a lot for your vote, it really means a lot!
I am still waiting to hear your voice on DSound... but I am confident that some day that will happen! ;)
Thanks a lot for your suggestions, I checked and they are great uses for my spare votes. Actually they were there waiting because I removed so many other witnesses that are not doing a good job either technically or community wise and couldn't find as many to put back! So it was great help to have your suggestions.
Big hug girl and think about what I wrote about DSound,ok? Maybe a Christmas present for DSound tribe? ;)

You're most welcome. Thanks for listening to my suggestions! So appreciated. And YES! You will hear my voice on DSound soon. Big hugs back! :)

Wow, been awhile since anyone said that many nice things about me at one time. I really appreciate your honesty and dedication. You really amaze me with every new breath, ya know it? Thank you.

You work really hard to make this blockchain a place that feels like home, and you succeed. Thank you for what you do.

So you were the rapper guy behind sunglasses at the SteemFest3 Night of Steem stage?! Maybe you could also think about sharing your words and beats on DSound, brother? ;)
Didn't know you were a witness too... Voted! :)

Aye that I was, had a great time over there! I can definitely start throwing a few things up on there. My time has been fairly limited due to the holidays but I'll surely get some up there. Lot of people still don't know I'm a witness and I didn't know you guys were either and I believe I have a vote open! Dsound is supporting a fee of the same music contests I am so good to see you out and about😎

Thanks @dsound and @prc for the hard work you have put in to bring music to the platform and all the changes you have made to improve the dapp! Looking forward to the next year as things can only get even better!

Thanks for the kind words! :) Keep tuned and you will see it happening... ;)

First, great freaking job that you are doing here, so congratz to our @prc.
I changed my vote, and I will continue support @dsound, remember y'all that you can deleguate SP as well, to empower our community...

Thanks a lot my friend! :) DSound tribe is this! ;) Big hug to you buddy...

I would upvote and vote, but dsound has never worked for me. I've tried signing up and it has never worked. Why not use steemconnect so that I could easily get into the ecosystem?

I'm right behind it

I am happy to support YOU!
Huggins from Germany dear friend <3

They're some beefy servers! Have you over-committed or is that what you need to run a witness node?

Thank you for all your hard work @prc!

Have a great Christmas and I look forward to seeing all the amazing features you have in store for us all in 2019!!
