Which witnesses are voting for the minnows?

Using SteemData and steem-python, WitnessWatch has analyzed every vote cast by the top 30 witnesses on the Steem blockchain. The chart below shows the average reputation of all of the authors that each witness has voted for. The reputations were weighted by the total number of votes each author received.

Note: This is calculated based on each authors current reputation. It is likely that at least some of these authors saw a rise in reputation after being voted on by witnesses, so please do not make the mistake of drawing a definitive causation out of this correlation.

For each of the top 30 witnesses, we've calculated the top 5 authors that they vote for. Below you can find the results, with the reputation of each author, and the number of times each witness has voted for their top 5.

I would like to see reports on the character of witnesses. Not just the top 30
What kind of things do they support ?
How do they make the bulk of their money ?
Do they get involved with witch hunts or promote them in some way
How easily is their loyalty purchased and how much does it cost.
That kind of thing

·

Great suggestions! We are working on some of the more complex data scenarios, as it can be difficult to quantify things like "loyalty"! Stay tuned, as that is coming soon.

·

Chances come in overalls... you will get many upvotes when you compile such a report!

·
·

Yea i just dont have the technical ability to do the research yet. Maybe never will

Hope to see more distributed votes on other steemians who have quality content yet still undervalued or overshadowed by the more widely known authors on this platform. There is a lot to see over the horizon.

More power and God bless!

·

I think that the witnesses feel the same way, and they have actively been investing and working on initiatives that do just that!

tell me how to make them a witness

How do the witnesses make the bulk of their money ?

·

It depends on the witness, but their witness income comes from rewards for processing transactions on the blockchain.

Good job

I have upvote brother

You got a 1.49% upvote from @allaz courtesy of @jaredcwillis!

good post

Wow! As a newbie I appreciate your thoroughness and research! Thank you and Happy New Year😄

I think I understand now why the self voting thing will never go away, and will always be a problem. Very insightful.

Is this data including all upvotes they've made since starting their accounts? At first, I was shocked to see so many witnesses voting for themselves, but if they've just upvoted their own posts (not comments) over a long period of time, the figures don't look so bad.

·

Hi @penston, great question. Yes, this data includes every vote they've ever cast. There was a time when you automatically upvoted your own post when it was submitted, so some of these votes would have occurred as a result of that.

very nice

good data .. this data evokes my passion for the future to try to be more creative so that can be lifted my name like that name .. if try nothing unimportant on your post motivation motivation very good thanks @witnesswatch
