EOS BLOCK PRODUCER CANDIDATE REPORT #10, May 30 2018
This is the final Block Producer Candidate Report in its current form. More than three months have passed since the original call to action for block producer candidates to submit information - 48 candidates responded for that first report, of which 23 have since dropped from contention.
EOS Go started this series of weekly (and later bi-weekly) BP candidate reports to achieve three goals:
1) Help everyone keep track of candidates as they announced.
2) Encourage candidates to release a template of voter-critical information to the public.
3) Promote integrity, modesty, and transparency by offering check marks to candidates for posting information on the Steem blockchain. All BP candidate announcements are now permanent and cannot be altered, for future auditability.
We’d like to thank all block producer candidates for working to provide their best information for everyone these past few months. The EOS community is fortunate to have a high caliber pool of 177 candidates reporting information to the community, as of this final report. We also appreciate all feedback we received in helping us improve these reports every week. Thank you.
Please note EOS Go is not “official” in any capacity. We do not represent EOS, a decentralized blockchain, and we are not running for block producer or affiliated with block.one. EOS Go is a neutral community hub and information source to help empower EOS, first and always - throughout the launch and beyond. Go EOS!
We are now encouraging everyone to transition towards the new EOS Go Block Producer Research Site, where BP candidates maintain their own landing page with a quick overview and links to their information. All candidates are also presented on a large map and can update their own page of information any time. See this section of the site to learn more.
BPC Reports #9 and #10 include the additional and final 2 Checkmark Criteria:
"Block Producer Roadmap" and "Stance on Dividends."
THIS WEEK'S NEWS and NOTES
- Report #10 includes 27 new block producer candidates.
- Reports #9 & #10 only contain links to the BP Research Portal to help streamline research for community members. Block Producer Candidates - please continue updating your page on the BP Research Portal with all links and info so the community can get a quick overview of your candidacy, and dive in for a deeper look through your links.
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.)
(List with links to BP Candidate Research Site Pages is below this chart.)
Checkmark Criteria Summary
This chart summarizes how many BPCs out of the current total group size meet each of EOS Go's six community-reviewed "Checkmark Criteria" and two additional Checkmark Criteria, #7 and 8, for basic transparency and informativeness:
BPCs By Country
BPCs By Region
The Original Six Check Mark Criteria
1) PUBLIC PRESENCE: A public website URL and at least one social media account.
2) ID ON STEEMIT: Links to the following ID information, all posted to the Steem blockchain (either in one post or multiple):
- Official block producer candidate name.
- Location of company headquarters.
- Expected location of servers.
- Type of servers (cloud, bare metal, etc).
- Current employee list and pictures of at least 67% of staff.
- Relevant background qualifications for at least 67% of staff.
3) TECH SPECS: Estimate of technical specifications and total expenditure for resources by June 3, 2018 - posted to Steem blockchain. Check mark given for any estimate, modesty encouraged by permanent Steem record. Quality and accuracy of effort will be judged by the EOS community.
4) SCALING PLAN: Estimated scaling plan for hardware after June 3, 2018 - posted to Steem blockchain. Rough outlines receive a check mark, open review gauges the effort.
5) COMMUNITY BENEFIT: Community benefit project outline, only for projects expected to be public by June 3, 2018 - posted to Steem blockchain.
6) TELEGRAM+TESTNET: Listing of Telegram and Test-net node names for community testnet participation.

FOR BP CANDIDATES:
Please continue to update your landing page on the BP Research Portal at https://bp.eosgo.io - the community should be able to easily get an overview of your candidacy and quickly find your most important links to learn more.
BPCs without at least 1 URL showing clear evidence of Block Producer candidacy are no longer listed. To have your BP Candidacy re-listed please submit a valid URL or Steemit post with information about your candidacy to: email@example.com OR through the original BP Candidate form.
BPC list randomization was 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.
As of BPC Report #8 EOS Go stopped including SHA256 checksums for in-line SteemIt images after it became clear that such protocol offers no reliable assurance of data integrity. SHA256 checksums do continue to apply to the privately-archived snapshots of raw BPC form submissions, as detailed below.
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.
