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

in witness-category •  5 months 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.

But we like to do more.

Not long ago 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. Our vote has grown to an impressive 1106MV (to put that into perspective @freedom, one of the biggest accounts on the blockchain has 17000MV).

A month has now passed since our push for more transparency regarding our witness votes and as promised here is the new monthly list with upcoming changes (2).

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

The following witnesses we still approve of but will be rotated out:

I'd like to see Actifit added to that list

Turned of his witness here. We are still looking forward to vaporchain!

I'll surely continue to work on that once I release a minor Proof-of-Brain project that I'm almost ready to launch.


That’s great to hear !

Thanks for being transparent on the witnesses you support. Currently, we've already voted on a few witnesses and we'll make a point to follow your example to list our reasonings too.


That would be interesting!


More transparency is always welcome. We’re glad we are able to set an example worth following. Who knows maybe you guys will even consider voting for us 😉

Thanks! I appreciate it.


You’re welcome. It’s deserved.

Really appreciate your transparency and engagement!

Just a quick suggestion: Steem Apps is missing from my info - I know that you know, but you probably just forgot to edit it in :P



Fixed 😉

Good breakdown. I’d encourage Minnows or people who are not in the know to make you a proxy, the transparency shown here is appreciated


Thanks for your encouraging words Mew! 😊

Thanks! I appreciate it.

Good list of witnesses there. Think that many people would be better off setting someone that keeps track of what witnesses are doing vs the normal set it and forget it method most use.


Thank you.

Great to know the reasons for your witness upvoting, @blockbrothers.


Transparancy is important. Thank you for your comment

Hi, @blockbrothers
Is there a way to apply as a witness to join your list? I am active on promoting Steem and I post free tutorials daily.
Also I am one of the few witnesses that have missed zero blocks ever, my server has been running with zero downtime and no blocks missed for many months already :)
