Announcing New Public Full Node

State of public full nodes blows

The current state of non-Steemit Inc nodes is discouraging. More full nodes have come down and I have word another will be coming down soon. I have been debating about making a full node public for a long time now, my timing couldn't be any worse it seems. is now a limited node

Certain APIs have been removed from and certain queries do not return complete results. The future of Steemit Inc public nodes is in question, and with the current situation even more so.

The more decentralized and independent we can become, the better for the future of Steem.


My full node runs all plugins and is publicly available. As you can see above there are not a lot of public full nodes available and as you can see below there are not many that are actually usable.

If we remain dependent on Steemit Inc's nodes we will be sadly disappointed when and if the time comes they decide to pull the plug on them or drastically reduce their scaling. A lot of people have talked about setting up full nodes but it hasn't happened. With the price situation, the problem will likely get worse.


While there are things I could do to get more performance out of the node at increased costs, performance is outstanding.
