Monthly witness update - Engrave Witness

in #witness6 months ago


It's been a crazy month for all of us. Everyone was working at the top speed and absurd circumstances. Not only core developers but the entire community. We have done a great job as the community, and I'm proud to be part of it.

It this post, you will find a short summary of my work and efforts during the time from Hive beginning. and wallet contributions

I've put a lot of effort into condenser and wallet contributions, and I'm continually working on it. I'm reviewing changes made by other developers and fixing errors by myself when I have only time. Most of my work isn't visible by a typical Hive user, but I already contributed with:

  • Improved development workflow with CI/CD (MR !49)
  • Reduced Docker image size by 90%! (Read here)
  • Reviewed the repository, removed old branches and useless tags.
  • Spun useful Gitlab Runners for another projects (documentation, hive-js and other)
  • Fixed a lot of small bugs and errors

Claiming accounts

I'm continually utilizing my Resource Credits by claiming accounts so I could later invite new Hive users without any cost. I've configured an excellent script created by @arcange (consider voting on his witness!) to automatically claim accounts whenever I can. I've also upgraded it a bit and opened a Pull Request which has been already accepted and merged:

I currently have 264 pending claimed accounts. If you need an account for your friend or family member, let me know.

Accounts creation

I've already used some account tokens to open a few invitations on Some of the accounts are already active and quickly became part of the community :)

Open Source Projects

HIVE Ticker Extension for GNOME desktop environment

Hive Ticker is a simple, open-source GNOME shell extension that displays HIVE price on the system status area. Price is gathered from CoinGecko API. The ticker is updated every minute and shows a panel with additional pieces of information when clicked.


As many of us successfully switched to Hive, a new, better version of the social blockchain, it is crucial to remove our content from Steem. There are multiple reasons why would you like to do that and why you really need to do that. Read more about the tool on this two posts:

Notifying 243 015 users who should care about recovery account

TL;DR if you have steem set as a recovery account, your assets are not secure because you won't be able to recover your account in case someone changes your keys. Change this to your alter account or someone you can trust. Read more about my :

Is this still an active project? I tried to login today but the process is wrought with --https-- errors on the way to hivesigner, then an endless loop without authorizing the app.

I have a team and community ready to go - please advise.

Sorry, I had some health issues and been offline for a while. The project is still active and maintained (I just renewed the SSL certificate).

Thanks for answering. I hope you are better soon!

Note - the SSL seems to be okay now.

Support the HiveBuzz project. Vote for our proposal!

Voted. Thank you for creating the blogging platform. It looks fantastic. I just joined.

Hi there:)
I just logged in to test your platform, it looks very sleek and easy to use!
I imported all my previous posts, and I have a question
Is it possible to edit the category of my previous posts?

Another question :)
What happens to the new posts I create from now on? Am I obliged to use engrave or can I import them afterwards?

Hi, I could certainly do with another account to use as my alternate account. I don’t really know anyone else to nominate for a recovery account. I did have enough resource credits to create one some time ago but I couldn’t access it after I had created it.

Gracias 😁 estaré leyendo para aclarar mis dudas.

nice post, nice to see your post 😍

I want to be a part of it too. I am new here. I sincerely want to raise my Hive account. I need tips and followers and even upvotes on my posts.

The tip is: do not copy content from the internet and do not spam.
