@blockbrothers complete witness vote list July 2019 + three upcoming changes.


@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 1200 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 July with upcoming changes.

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

Thank you so much for supporting the @steemcommunity witness while it was active.

Great choices on the two to rotate in.

Sure thing ! Good initiatives deserve support. Simple as that 😉

Holy shit this is an informative post. I know it has been a while since I voted for witnesses and at least one of them are not even active anymore. This gives me a great read and door for thought so I can pick new ones.

I have blockbrothers selected and will definitely keep that.

With all that voting power, it makes complete sense to cast all of your votes if you are active on the blockchain and want to see it grow with other involved and progressive witnesses.

Glad to hear it moved you into action. Stagnation (even in witness votes) leads nowhere.

Actively approving witnesses makes sure it all stays fresh & healthy. That’s why people proxied us. So we can stay on top of an active approval list on their behalf.

Lastly, much thanks for your continued support of our witness 😊

You still have steemcommunity in the list of supported witnesses.

That’s correct. This post is a heads up and we will make the changes in a couple of days.

Hi @blockbrothers again for a very good information. Will adjust my list of witnesses and even more thanks for supporting the thirsty #BeerSaturday since a while.

Thanks for the update and a great list. The only thing I think is a shame is that none of the 'bigger' witnesses seem to acknowledge the work davinci.witness is doing, nor does anyone seem to realize the importance of quality translations for everything blockchain/open source related...

Thanks for the great work you are doing across. Glad to know this from the manager

Hey guys. It's nice to know that you are making quite a big effort for choosing your votes. I think this is very important for others to know as this can set up a great example of why people should vote in the first place.

I don't know if you're planning to update your voting list anytime soon but would really appreciate if you take into consideration my candidate the next time.

Here's what's I've done so far:
1 - Launched 3 projects for Steem community:

  • Steem Insights - search engine based on hivemind.
  • Steem Proposals - an interface for upcoming SPS system (currently using Steemit testnet).
  • Steem Apps Explorer - a blockchain explorer for different apps that are using Steem (currently over 30 apps, including Tribes, Bots, Steem-engine tokens).

2 - Pushed @paytomat to add STEEM as one of the cryptocurrencies into their payment platform. Here's a sample.

Let me know if you have any questions, I'm open for a chat and collaborations.
