Announcing the winners of the #7 episode

In the just concluded #7 episode, we had 4 participants. Of this 4, first and second positions are tied at 42 valid votes by @project-a and @sola3097 while @ttay came third with 38 valid votes

With respect to first and second positions, what I will do now, is to add their prizes and divide it by two and award them. I think that's better. So we have 3sbd plus 2sbd gives 5sbd.5sbd divided by 2 gives 2.5sbd. So @project-a and @sola3097 gets 2.5sbd each while @ttay gets 1sbd!

Steemit is built on block chain and all decentralized block chain need active set of people to run it, witness makes the block chain accessible by running web servers, this means steemit blockchain requires an arrangement of individuals for it to be able to run successfully .
Witness also give meanings to our posts by influencing it to show on block chains for individuals to see which occurs in hub.


Nice one bro.

You came second in the contest with 67 valid votes. And your 2sbd prize had been sent. Congratulations!!

A steem witness is nothing but a person who operates a server known as a witness server which produces blocks and help publish a price feed of STEEM/USD to the network. Their major role is to produce a block (not miners), maintain a price feed which is how SBD functions, decide whether to handfork or not and help the network function and grow

You came first in the contest with 89 valid votes and your 3sbd prize had been sent. Congratulations!!!

Steem-blockchain requires a set of people to create blocks and uses a consensus mechanism called DPOS. The community elects 'witnesses' to act as the network's block producers and governance body. There're 20full-time witnesses, producing a block every 63-second round. A 21st-position is shared by the backup witnesses, who are scheduled proportionally to the amount of stake-weighted community approval they have.


Witness makes major role in blackchain technology, because they give life to our posts.

Witness are king in blackchain technology, to do their work properly they need our support. For giving our support to them they get more energy to do work properly.

So we must support them for giving our support.

Hear is my support

Your opinion of who witnesses are and the roles the play are wrong. And so you were disqualified. Thanks for participating

Witnesses are generally voted for because they are trusted members of the community, positively contribute to Steem and Steemit in many ways, are qualified and experienced in administration of servers, and are experienced in cryptocurrency networks and software. Witnesses are expected to keep a block-producing Steem node running 24/7/365.25. They are also expected to provide an ongoing price feed of the value of STEEM tokens in U.S. dollars, set the mininum Steem Power deposit to create an account, set the APR% for the Steem Dollar interest rate, and in the future might set additional network variables. Witnesses are also strongly encouraged to run a seed-node to provide the blockchain to syncing clients.

Witnesses are rewarded for these qualities, services, and of course running their node by getting powered up by 1 STEEM for each block they produce. By being paid in Steem Power, witnesses are further incentivized to be committed long-term and also to contribute to Steemit curation.

So pls support them,hear is my support
