What I've Been Up To
Upgraded both my seed node
steem-seed.lukestokes.info:2001and my witness node to version 19.2.
Added 1% APR to SBD as I've seen many other witnesses I respect doing the same. The past month or two, SBD dropped below $1 for what I would consider significant amounts of time so maybe even the token gesture of 1% APR might help there. I've heard some witnesses say APR changes should be made during the beginning of the month, so I figured this was a good time to make it.
In my last witness update, I talked about being able to help a little bit with an "as-of-yet undisclosed Steemit related project" involving an IPFS node. That project you all know of now as https://dtube.video/ which @heimindanger announced last month. :)
I've continued my weekly Witnes Voting Engagement Report and am happy to see the numbers moving in the right direction since starting the report. We now have 21.3% voting participation for accounts with over 100k VESTS. (I've also consistently put out my Exchange Transfer Report.)
I resteemed what I think is a fun project by @biophil called POCKET. It's the first side chain STEEM token that I know of, and I want to encourage interesting development projects like this. You can learn all about it here, and you can still resteem the genesis post to get your own POCKET tokens.
I'm looking forward to traveling to Europe for the first time for Steemfest 2! Thank you so much for supporting my witness @lukestokes.mhth as I was able to buy a gold ticket with my witness rewards. It also went a long way to convincing @corinnestokes to consider it a business trip. :)
Thanks again for your support!
As of this post, I'm currently holding position 28!

I don't plan to do frequent witness updates unless I have something worth sharing, but I'm always available if you have a question or concern. I'm monitoring my servers daily and keeping up with the #witness channel on Steemit.chat. The daily stuff isn't too exciting, so it's not really worth posting about all the time. :)
