Block Producer Candidate Report #2 - March 14, 2018

in eos •  10 months ago



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.


  • 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, pages, Telegram chats, Facebook pages, websites, and more. To update your listing please send an email request to:

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:


Process Notes

  • 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
SHA256 checksum: cbc68154cd4bac0097b361797036e09d31760f11ba86d82d5a0ea4a618cfb8e9

" * due to administrative error we had to update the SHA256 checksums for summary charts after this report was posted."

Outstanding work here. You're providing a huge value to the larger community -- every community requires "information clearing mechanisms" and EOS Go is a huge one for us.


Thank you Thomas, your support has always meant a lot to EOS Go. We agree with what you've said in the past about being proud to work alongside everyone in this community. Go EOS!

It's great to see that you depend on the blockchain based STEEM to share information!

Could we provide basic bio and contact information for all block producer candidates on next report?


Thank you, many additions are coming to this report. We're looking to answer demand from the community and we are reliant on feedback like this. Is there anything else you'd like to see or we should consider?

I wish I can understand this in a Layman's term please.

We invite all BP candidates to join community testnet to showcase their capabilities as we will be publishing stats:
Many BP candidates already signed up. We have about 10 spots left.
