@blockbrothers complete witness vote list April 2019 + two upcoming changes.

in #witness-category4 years ago (edited)


@blockbrothers are already very active in the community through @exyle and @s3rg3 (Dutch Community), @brittandjosie (our community manager) and our own @blockbrothers account.

We are also the developers behind Steemify.

But we like to do more.

In December 2017 we released a post here where we clearly state which witnesses we vote for and why.

Since that time many Steemians have entrusted us with their proxy witness vote and our vote has grown to an impressive 1413.5 MV (to put that into perspective @freedom, one of the biggest accounts on the blockchain has 18000MV).

We have a healthy mix of community witnesses and developers.

Here is the new monthly list for April with upcoming changes.

If you like our choice for witnesses you can set @blockbrothers as your witness proxy and we will honor that trust.

@wise-team Not much activity. We will keep tracking @engrave.

We are working on couple of new things, but not all of them are ready to release yet. In couple of next days we should officially release Steem Content Renderer, which is 100% compatible with Steemit Renderer.


This means... that posts which looks good on Steemit, will also looks good on websites which will use this renderer :)


It is already open-sourced and available to review :) We already using it on production on Engrave :)

Till now every Steem Interface which wanted to display posts published via Steemit , needed to write own renderer capably of rendering markdown + custom-steemit-restricted set of html tags.

Some projects written in React utilizes implementation from condenser, however it is not easy, because their renderer is tightly coupled with React, theretofore very difficult to integrate with different frontend frameworks.

We believe that a renderer hould be a standalone package from a beginning, so every project could use it. Our idea is to make it more popular among other developers... and our end goal is to replace current implementation on Steemit, with this package... so if Steemit would like to change something in rendering, it would be automatically updated in other frontends.

We will make announcement about this soon. Follow our accounts (@wise-team, @engrave, @noisy), to not miss it :)

And it you think this is useful for a community, learn more about other our projects which are listed here :)

i liked this list of witnesses...
i see Steemify is not available for Android, when it will be ?
i would like to check it

There's a lot of good people in that list but one rotten apple is all that it takes to ruin a whole crop, and as such, I have recently removed my Witness vote for Blockbrothers. I will reconsider adding you again later, depending on how this list changes.

Thank you for the wonderful support!

What about adding dsound to the list? He might need some extra votes too...

Good suggestion, we will consider it!

You've got my proxy vote if you add him to the list!

I have been considering using a proxy vote rather than voting myself with Utopian dropping. Just to make sure all of my votes are always used to the max.

@blockbrothers You have received a 100% upvote from @intro.bot because this post did not use any bidbots and you have not used bidbots in the last 30 days!

Upvoting this comment will help keep this service running.
