Sndbox Weekly Question [Who are your Blockchain Neighbors?]

in #myblock2 years ago (edited)

Weekly Question - myblock.png

Welcome to our Weekly Question Series - every Monday, @sndbox will publish a question designed to challenge and explore new ways of engaging the Steem blockchain.

Explore your Block! The #myblock Challenge

Each and every action across the Steem blockchain becomes recorded within a “block.” These blocks are clusters of data that record the posts, upvotes, transfers and comments of all Steemians. Over time, blocks become linked together to create a "chain" of un-editable data. The Steem blockchain has minted 25 million blocks so far! Today we’re asking everyone to dig into the data and to see who their digital neighbors are? Who’s your landlord (i.e. the witness who minted this block)? What kind of landlord is he or she? Do you have any celebrities in your neighborhood? Robots? Trolls? Let's dive in and find out...

Here's an example live-feed that you can check out via steemdb. It shows a the blockchain in action and all the different parts that go into each block:


How to take part?

  • Publish a post! Write a short blurb, speculating a bit about your block.
  • Once published, it's time to dive into the blockchain... go to (Make sure the URL has username, not ours!)
  • Under Recent History, click the block # your post was published on and do some exploring.
  • Comment on your own post to showcase your findings with screenshots and other interesting notes about your blockchain neighborhood :)

Share a comment below with your #myblock post. We'll upvote our favorites!

Fantastic idea sndbox! This is a great way to help users understand blockchain technology! I was mentioned as being a block neighbor of a participant, now I want to participate!

UPDATE: I have participated! Cool beans!

Hello! This is my participation 😃 I had so much fun! Thank you for this educational challenge.

I'm so excited about the challenge, 3 months back I thought of on which block was I born?. I even found my twins xD
Thanks for your initiative, so this is my post about this challenge.. There are 44 neighbours in total. Thankfully it wasn't a curation trail so the block wasn't flooded with neighbours hahaha.

Here's my take!

Nice! @anyx is a long time fighter of plagiarism on the blockchain. He's developed resources like steemcleaners and cheetah, among others.

A great landlord :)

Cool. I know that Cheetah!!

Thanks @sndbox for the challenge, despite losing this comment and having to do it all over again.. such is the nature of technology!

I've made a post for my analysis, exploring the block that I authored a poetry post on yesterday. It's called:

Block 25068570 - There Goes the Neighborhood

There's no need to be a witness or a blockchain pro! This post is just an experiment to learn more about how the blockchain works and what kinds of information it holds.

For example, your comment (above) on this post was stored in block 25,037,600 !

Learn more by browsing

Ahhh interesting I will have a deep look into it in few minutes in my laptop that sounds informative.

Some people looking at the block pages.

Never been in a block produced by you :D JK
(I know I didn't always keep an eye on it :P )

I know you don't pay the rent on time so I don't allow you in my blocks 🤣

Please I have been trying to apply my hands on this, but it seems to me that I might not have the proper know how.

This to me seems like magic.

I finally struck gold with my trial
