What do you know about steem Witness?
This topic is not new in the blog, but even with that, it is still going to be new in some Users’ ears. Sadly, a lot of users still don’t have any knowledge about it, but I think it is very important to give attention to it.
To save my soul from much explanation I am going to make a general explanation on this topic, this might be a very long piece with valuable information. Feel free to use It as a reference in case you want to help someone.
I will also make some reference to other publications, there will be a workshop on how to carry out this task.
I am simply talking about witnesses and how to vote for a witness on the steemit blog.
Who is a Steem Witness?
A Steem witness basically is the one securing the blockchain, managing transactions, and making the consensus between the different nodes. These ones collectively decide on the version of steem that is running, they run the Steem server 24/7. Technically these ones are miners.
Why should you vote for Witnesses?
First of all, you need to understand that it is expensive to run a witness here in the blog, It cost a lot of money, time, and energy… and so as a result Witnesses need votes from users so that they can climb the rankings and get more Steem Power back, which can pay for their server costs monthly. Without them, there is no Steem blockchain and you don't earn Rewards, think about that.
If you don’t Vote for them, It can prevent some newer Witnesses to drop out from their rank because they don't have enough funds to pay for the server they are working with, especially when the value of Steem is low.
Most of these witnesses have contributed a lot to the platform, and most of them have created some useful tools that are beneficial to all. Most have delegated to other users, fund projects on Steem and even upvote authors and curators. These are all for development.
Many of the great services we use across the platform have been developed by witnesses. Here are a few examples below:
- steemworld.org by @steemchiller
- Steemauto by @xpilar
- Steemcryptic by @starlord28
- SteemYY.com by @justyy
- Press4Steem by @pennsif
- cotify by @alejos7ven….etc.
The list goes on. If you like a tool that has been developed, you can support it by giving its creator a witness vote. If you appreciate their contribution when it comes to development, you can as well give a witness vote to these ones.
Voting a witness doesn’t cost you anything trust me, It’s not taking any of your assets and you have the opportunity to vote 30 different witnesses on Steem.
It would be wise to also note that voting for a known and trusted witness is the best and will contribute positively to the blog, whereas If you vote for a bad witness, it will affect the blog Negatively.
How can you Vote for a witness?
This part is very important. Most Users don’t know how to vote for a witness. Some call it a scam because they don’t understand how a witness work, perhaps they didn’t understand the concept of achievement 6 tasks.
