in #eos6 years ago (edited)


EOS BLOCK PRODUCER CANDIDATE REPORT #8, May 2 2018 - (updated May 4th)

Due to the increasing volume of BP candidacy announcements we are now helping everyone transition towards the new EOS Go Block Producer Research Site, where the candidates are listed on a large map and can update their own page of information any time. See this section of the site to learn more.

EOS Go will offer two more BPC Reports before launch, every two weeks: #9, posted Wednesday May 16th, and #10, posted Wednesday May 30th.


Report #9 will be the first to include the final 2 new Checkmark Criteria EOS Go will review before main-net launch:

"Block Producer Roadmap" and "Stance on Dividends."

Please follow this link for full details about the additional checkmark criteria.

Submissions for the (2) additional criteria are due by Tuesday, May 15th 2018 at 23:59 UTC.


- Report #8 includes 32 new block producer candidates.

- This report we have added links for each BP Candidate which go directly to their Block Producer Portal web page at at: Please visit the Portal regularly for continually-updated info on BPCs.

** Important ** - Reports 9 & 10 will only contain links to the BP Research Portal. Block Producer Candidates - please create a listing or update information for the community to see in the next two reports.

Check-Mark Criteria Charts

The list is 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 [email protected] 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)

Update May 8 5:30pm EST / 2130 UTC: though it is too late to update the check mark image, it should be noted ViaBTC actually has 6 check marks, our own mistake at EOS Go. All 6 check marks will be properly shown in the next report, releasing May 16.

Summary Charts

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.

Addenda & Corrections

Any changes after initial publication of this report will be logged here.
2018-05-04: Updated Checkbox List graphic and 3 Summary Chart graphics to reflect 2 new BPCs, additional checkmark updates, and re-classification of some countries and regions. Added additional data snapshot & SHA256 hash to record changes & additions.

2018-05-04: removed SHA256 checksum hash from “Checkmark Box List” graphic (tallest chart) because it is not a reliable indicator of image-file integrity.
