In this post and video I want to share why I'm voting on some witnesses and why I unvoted some.
A Steem Witness is a person who operates a witness server (which produces blocks), and publishes a price feed of STEEM/USD to the network. source - steem wiki
So, I vote on a witness if I see him useful for the community. If he's witness is not disabled. If he/she creates something useful for the blockchain. If he/she holds some steem power. And if steem is promoted by him/her.
Let me write about each witness apart :
- I voted and still voting for @roelandp because he is the organiser of @steemfest , the best event where steemians meet in real life. He's well known by a lot of steemians. He's the top witness as well.
You can check him interviewed by @evecab here :
- @yabapmatt is a witness and developer of a lot of useful websites and applications related to steem. He's the creator of steem keychain, the cool extension that save your keys only on your pc without sharing them to a website. He's supporting @steemmonsters and steem-engine.com the home of the tribes created on steem.
You can check me interviewing him here :
- @blocktrades one of the biggest account in term of holding steem power. They also support a lot of applications, witnesses, developers, proposals and they do a lot for steem blockchain. You can check all the proposals we have here : steemproposals.com. You can also check their exchange where you can exchange steem to other crypto, buy steem or steem power : blocktrades.us.
- @gtg a very helpful steemian and witness. He's active in steem.chat helping steemians and supporting channels there. He's also a developer who support a lot of projects in steem.
- @aggroed is the creator of @minnowsupport the biggest discord server with over 19k members. He's also the creator of steem-engine.com where you can trade all tokens created on steem. He's also a very active steemian.
You can watch him interviewed by @coruscate here :
- @themarkymark I voted for him today because I see him upvoting a lot of active steemians who are creating quality content. He was running the upvote bot @buildawhale, but he turned that into a curation project that's making a lot of steemians happy.
- @good-karma I'm voting for him since I joined steem 2 years and 5 months ago. I like a lot the application @esteemapp he created and how he's always improving it. You can even install the esteem serfer that you can use to browse on your pc.
- @timcliff is a great steemian and the witness who always helped me when I ask about any thing related to steem. He's also the supported of EIP (Economic Improvement Proposal) and he supports @steem.dao as well.
- @drakos is also a nice steemian and cool witness. He's among the team of creativecoin.xyz the tribe that supports creativity in steem. He's very supportive as well.
- @ocd-witness is the witness of @acidyo who's running one of the best projects to support the quality in steem and that's @ocd ( original content ). The team is doing well by also upvoting using the @ocdb account to upvote those who are promoting steem. So, you can use #posh ( prove of share ) tag in case you're sharing your links in other social media and proving that in the comments and you will have the chance to be supported.
- @therealwolf is the creator of @smartsteem the most famous upvote bot that was turned into a curation project and the team is curating #steem tag and a lot of interesting content on the blockchain. You can also earn points by delegating to the project, you can check the details here : smartsteem.com
- @actifit is one of the best applications created on steem blockchain that supports steemians to be healthier. It's created by @mcfarhat
- @pharesim very active witness who care about the blockchain and who is running @curangel to make some order on steem. I respect what's he doing and I'm voting for him for a long time. Because since I joined steem he was supporting me a lot and I never forget that. I guess he like to help newcomers to grow. Of course if they are legit and bringing value.
- @stoodkev is the creator of @steem-plus the application that's helping a lot of steemians. It shows a lot of details about our account on steemit and it saves our time. That's why I always use it and I'm voting for the witness who created it. ☺
- @arcange is from the team of @steemitboard the website that's motivating a lot of steemians to be active and rewarding them with cool badges for their achievement. I still vote for both because I think it's really useful for steemians.
- @blockbrothers is the witness of @exyle who created Steemify ( the notification steem application ). He's also actively recording vlogs sharing a lot of important information about the blockchain. Supporting steemians by upvotes as well.
- @holger80 also a well known witness and developer who is working on a lot of projects on steem. I know as well that he's working on steem-engine.com that's why I still vote for him.
- @helpie is a great project supported by a lot of cool steemians like @meno and others. Despite not having a lot of steem power, they still work together to grow and to support those who deserve support. Of course I will keep my vote for them. ☺
- @firepower I know this witness also for a long time, since I joined steem. I like to use steem.chat
created by him. It's really a useful website where steemians can easialy be found and it's easy to contact them there. They also have a lot of channels there, where you can find your niche.
- @steemgigs is the witness of @surpassinggoogle the guy who was supporting me and a lot of steemians when he was a whale. Despite losing that big delegation, he kept working on steem and creating more and more projects on it. The best of them is the idea of @ulogs where anyone can be famous on the web. Anyone can be a celebrity and I support that idea and that's why I was and still voting for the witness.
- @justyy I believe that he's a nice witness as well. He's the creator of a very good tool that I always use to check delegators and in fact we can check a lot of things there : https://steemyy.com/
- @mahdiyari is the creator of steemauto.com one of the best automation tool for steemians. I use it and I like the interface.
- @ura-soul also an excited witness about steem running ureka.org that's working on the blockchain as well.
- @qurator is a witness and a project that's liked by a lot of steemians. The team are also supporting a lot and I like that they created their own token recently and they are growing and doing very well.
- @dmitrydao I voted for him today because I see him the creator of steemproposals.com. I think that's really important project for steem. Everyone has the right to make a proposal to improve our blockchain.
- @yoodoo I voted for them today because I know that's the team are from @oracle-d m the same who are running @threespeak where I start actively to create my videos. I like their vision about onboarding steemians and how they are doing their best to attract social media influencers. That's why I voted for them and I think I will be voting for them for a long time.
- @ausbitbank I voted for him today because I saw him supporting a lot of steemians and I saw him before active in a lot of projects, so I decided to vote on him because i like active steemians.
Those are all witnesses I prefer and support by my voting and i want to let all my 5624 followers in steemit know about that. In case you want to vote for them all, all you need to do is to follow by setting my account as proxy here : https://steemitwallet.com/~witnesses. So, your account will vote automatically on witnesses I vote for !
I'm also trying my best in other social media and crypto forums to promote steem. I'm the founder of @dcooperation community and I interviewed more than 100 steemians. I was also a curator in dtube and I will start soon to work on @steemdelegator to delegate power to those who will promote steem. I already talked with @theycallmedan about that and he gonna help.
