Hi Steemian friends! :)

I've met a lot of you online already, and some of you at SteemFest 2 in Lisbon, which was really amazing by the way and is not because I am portuguese at all!

I came to Steem about 4 months ago and I already feel like home here. I found out so many interesting people and I stand by the community-driven content rewarding on blockchain idea so much, that in this little time I already contributed to the ecosystem by creating DSound and continue maintaining it.

I want my journey on Steem and Steemit to be worth it and use this opportunity to leave my mark on this wonderful community by bringing more innovative and fun projects for everybody to enjoy, while helping Steem to grow and be more valuable for all of us.

Activity

I comment, curate, and actually read/view/watch/listen to great content our fellows post everyday. I also participate and help users on steemit.chat.

I post. And I want to post more. And being a musician and music producer I want to use my DSound to publish my music, as well as projects like DLive to share my DJ sets live from my studio with all of you.

I want to create more dapps for steem, and I want to make DSound one of the success cases of this ecosystem, among other great projects, by going public with it and use SMT's to bring more value to our community as well.

Why offer myself to be a Witness?

I have around 30 years of experience as a software developer, from C/C++ all the way to JavaScript, I've used all the languages, and most important I have more than 20 years of server management and my own datacenter in Portugal. With these characteristics added by the true enthusiasm I feel by Steem community, I couldn't resist to offer more to all of you and get more involved in this awesome experience!

Being a witness is not only technical. It mostly is a community leadership and support activity which I believe I can perform by helping Steem to grow to Portuguese speaking communities and bring more and more people to the ecosystem, by spreading the word and by developing other niche communities over Steem, like music lovers and many more. I want to make Steem huge and bring all of us together around it! This is the responsibility I am assuming before the Steem community...

Technical Infrastructure

I've put together a set of dedicated server boxes for this endeavour that, after some investigation and questions asked in the steem.chat witness channel, I think will prove well and deliver stable performance to the Steem blockchain. All boxes are behind firewalls, IDS and power redundancy systems. The server characteristics are subject to upgrade or revision as needed.

Why I want your approval vote?

I want your vote, XS, S, M, L, or XL, if you trust me and approve what I do in the Steem ecosystem. My involvement with the community will continue to grow and many other projects will join after DSound, as I am constantly with new ideas. The stake of Steem I already hold, as well as what will come from witnessing, will be invested in the ecosystem, and the remaining will be vested as I already do, as I never powered down. I want to witness Steem growth and success, so count on me to help make it happen! :)

You can make your approval vote for me as a Steem witness here:

Thanks to all the fellow Steemians who have been supportive of DSound and my contributions to the community in general! Without you I wouldn't be here assuming this responsibility. Big thanks to all of you!
