EOS: Vote for me as your Proxy.

in #eos6 years ago

One of the responsibilities of being an EOS token holder is Voting for Block Producers!

Careful voting is crucial for the health of the network, if you are not sure who to vote for or how to vote yourself then you can select an EOS proxy who can delegate your vote for you!
You can also withdraw your votes from an EOS Proxy whenever you like.

I hereby declare myself as a registered Proxy on the EOS main net, chain ID: aca376f206b8fc25a6ed44dbdc66547c36c6c33e3a119ffbeaef943642f0e906

Why should you be my proxy?

You should let me vote on your behalf because,

  • I am devoted to the growth of the EOSIO software and EOS main net.
  • I will devote time to investigating each Block Producer based on values found on my website
  • I will be transparent in my decisions and will answer to those in public/private.
  • You will make the EOS main net a better place, each vote counts towards a more stable network and maybe even higher trade price of your EOS tokens!
  • You can take your votes back anyway! Ain't no 3 year commitment!

Proxying via Cleos

Cleos is regarded as the safest wallet, authored by Block One included in the EOSIO software.

This guide assumes you have cleos installed and the private key to your registered public key imported. Should you need help with this please let me know in the comments.

Validating the chain

Before we do anything with our account, let's confirm you're connecting to the main chain. This can be accomplished with the cleos command
cleos -u http://mainnet.genereos.io:80 get info
In the -u switch we are specifying which Block Producer we'd like to connect to, you can change this to whomever you like.
In the response you should expect

"chain_id": "aca376f206b8fc25a6ed44dbdc66547c36c6c33e3a119ffbeaef943642f0e906

Finding your account name

An account is already created for you, we can find your account name by looking up your PUBLIC key. E.g.
cleos -u http://mainnet.genereos.io:80 get accounts *Insert Public Key

{ "account_names": [ "*Your account name*" ] }

This will return a list of all the accounts associated with that public key, we're only expecting one. Copy your account name and keep it handy in your clipboard or write it down.

Delegate your Vote

Finally, you can delegate your vote.
cleos -u http://mainnet.genereos.io:80 system voteproducer proxy *Your account name* gm3daojtg4ge

gm3daojtg4ge is the Proxy account I'm using.

You can double check this has been successful by running command
cleos -u http://mainnet.genereos.io:80 get account *Your account name*
Which will return account details, including your selected proxy.

Should you need any help let me know!
