WEEKLY EOS BLOCK PRODUCER CANDIDATE REPORT #2
MARCH 14th 2018
The following is a randomized list of current Block Producer Candidates (BPCs) and public contact URLs. The order will be re-randomized every week. The information presented here was submitted directly by BPCs and has been minimally checked by EOS Go volunteers but not verified for completeness or accuracy.
NEW THIS WEEK -
- Six new block producer candidates.
- Candidate home country listed next to name.
- Two separate randomized lists - top list for those with valid candidacy URL, bottom list for all others.
- Location graphs showing BP candidates by country and continent (scroll down).
Starting with this report, BPCs whose contact URLs do not show some clear evidence of Block Producer candidacy are sorted into a second randomized group below the main group. These BPCs will be dropped from the list entirely starting with Report #4 on March 28th.
Block Producer Candidates: Please provide us with a single URL that is a clearinghouse for all important public information about your candidacy. The interested public should be able to visit one web page or site with easy-to-find links to your Twitter handles, Steem posts, Meetup.com pages, Telegram chats, Facebook pages, websites, and more. To update your listing please send an email request to: email@example.com
As a reminder, BPC Report #4 (Wednesday March 28) will mark the start of the per-BPC Checkbox Criteria reporting. Click here for the six check mark criteria and scroll down for a preview.

Preview of Future BP Candidate Reports
Here's the format EOS Go plans to use for upcoming BP Candidate Reports starting with Weekly Report #4 on 2018-03-28 (March 28th.) Note that ordering of BPCs remains random and will be re-shuffled every week:
BPC information is accepted on a rolling basis. The current on-line form for submitting data is this GoogleForm. (NOTE, this link may change over time, be sure you are looking at the most-recent version of this Weekly BPC Report to get the correct link.)
BPC list randomization is performed with the Shuffle tool in the AbleBits Power Tools plugin for GoogleSheets.
Why Steem? In the interest of fairness and transparency we request all BPCs to post information on a blockchain-backed platform where content cannot be silently altered or removed. This provides short- and long-term assurance to all parties -- other block producer candidates, EOS token holders, and the interested general public.
EOS Go includes SHA256 checksums for important data-containing image attachments in our SteemIt posts to ensure long-term content integrity and verifiability. (As of this writing SteemIt does not include a native mechanism for ensuring image integrity, read more here if interested.)
Additionally, EOS Go archives a local snapshot of the raw BPC form submission data (a .CSV-format spreadsheet) at the close of each weekly period. The .CSV snapshot will be archived for at least 2 years and its SHA256 checksum is posted in the report. In the event of a serious discrepancy or conflict relating to the BPC registration process a trusted 3rd party (such as an arbitrator) could examine one or more weekly data snapshots to verify their chronological integrity.
Raw form data .CSV snapshot as of the closing timestamp of Reporting Period #1:
File name: 2018-03-14_18_10_43_UTC_Snapshot_Block_Producer_Candidate_Form_Raw_Responses.csv
" * due to administrative error we had to update the SHA256 checksums for summary charts after this report was posted."
