WEEKLY EOS BLOCK PRODUCER CANDIDATE REPORT #5

April 4 2018

THIS WEEK'S NEWS and NOTES

Report #5 includes nine new block producer candidates. As announced previously, BPCs without at least one URL showing clear evidence of candidacy are no longer listed or included.

Changes this week:

  • 9 new block producer candidates.
  • All candidates graded by 6 check mark criteria for posting public auditable information, as explained here
  • No longer including SHA256 hashes for summary chart images.

Check-Mark Criteria Charts


Check marks earned according to criteria for posting public ID information, randomized for Reports #4 and #5.

Starting with Report #6 on April 11 the list will be ordered by check-mark totals, highest to lowest, with each sub-section randomized within the high-low overall sort. (E.g., all BPCs with total of say, 5 checkmarks, will be randomly-listed within their peer grouping.)

Please contact admin@eosgo.io to discuss / amend your listing no more than (72) hours after the publication timestamp of this report; we will offer one edit to this image for missed information.

(List with links to all candidates is below this chart, including new Steem post additions)

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.) We add SHA256's shortly after the initial post goes up to avoid process-related mismatches due to images being re-encoded server-side during the posting process.

  • 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.
