More about Witnesses
The STEEM blockchain requires a set of people to create blocks and keep the site running and keep track of transactions. Anyone who is willing to contribute to the Blockchain may become a Witness however they must be elected through votes made by the Steemit Community.
To essentially become a Steemit Witness an individual needs to be approved and voted by the Community, thus that person needs to have a good-t= rack record and must be liked or respected by others in order to be upvoted as a witness in the first place.
These Blockchain Witnesses are expected to keep a node running every second of every day. Most of Steem Witnesses actively engage in the Steemit Community, a reason why many users have upvoted them.
