In October 2017, BitShares eco-system encountered serious problems with its existing infrastructure at that point. APAsia.tech recognized the problem, and coming from Corporate Development and Hosting business, decided to help the eco-system and enable access to it’s users in most important period of crypto (fall in November, rise in December) to BitShares users by starting a node. First node in Thailand occurred on 1st of November and was introduced on bitsharestalk.org. Followed by support and partnership with Move Institute, Slovenia joined, project expanded and we were running 6 nodes by end of December covering most critical points such as USA and Asia, with just one node in EU. With growth in demand from entire BitShares eco-system, APAsia.tech expanded this to collaboration with DAOStreet, Move Institute (as mentioned) and Open Asset, ending up today with 26 online servers, 2 status pages for the infrastructure and Premium SSL protection for all with on-going maintenance.
We intend to provide more resources to existing infrastructure, to continue collaboration and maintenance of infrastructure we delivered over the past 8 months. We kept going our financial contribution to the blockchain for a while, have learned and experienced a lot, and finally come to a point where we can’t face another invoice or/and upgrades needed to continue with fully operational infrastructure. We would like to keep the built of existing infrastructure for the period of next 6 months, upgrade smaller nodes from APT@Vultr, activate missing DDOS protection and polish security on the upgraded/new nodes.
Launch of Infrastructure requires:
The twentyfive deployed BitShares Public API nodes
1. bitshares.nu 2. singapore.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 3. japan.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 4. new-york.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 5. us-la.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 6. seattle.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 7. chicago.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 8. dallas.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 9. valley.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 10. miami.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 11. atlanta.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 12. slovenia.bitshares.apasia.tech 13. australia.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 14. england.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 15. france.bitshares.apasia.tech (to be upgraded) 16. scali10.daostreet.com 17. seoul9.daostreet.com 18. frankfurt8.daostreet.com 19. paris7.daostreet.com 20. canada6.daostreet.com 21. ncali5.daostreet.com 22. ohio4.daostreet.com 23. virginia3.daostreet.com 24. oregon2.daostreet.com 25. status200.bitshares.apasia.tech
The deployed BitShares testnet node
We have currently one page in production stage: http://status.apasia.tech (production)
And one staging page that we have long term to place as global status page on bitshares.org (status.bitshares.org) and that would be listing all Public API of BitShares that are reported as active/approved by current BitShares Github.
More nodes will be added/removed in the most economical manner preserving best functionality and global API availability.
|26 nodes monthly - various ISPs||$3,380.00||Expense per month|
|Status Page development||$0.00||Fee|
|DDOS Upgrade/as add2Monthly||$120.00||Expense per month|
|TOTAL (per Month):||$3,500.00|
Based on carefully done estimate and months of experience with presented infrastructure, APAsia.tech and collaborators are asking BitShares blockchain for the Budget of $25,500.00, where $22,000.00 would be going on 6 months COST of renting the nodes/upgrades for the infrastructure, and $3,500.00 would be going as 1 time small reimbursement FEE for the initial setup and endurance/good will of good people team has.
