Witness Block Production at Steemian.Info

in witness-category •  5 months ago


Following a suggestion by @firepower to add a column showing the daily block production for each witness on https://steemian.info/witnesses, I found it to be a good idea (I was afraid to disagree because he would blast me with his firepower 🤣). However, I felt it would encumber the page since there's already a lot of information in the witness table. So I decided to create a separate page with data solely related to block production.

Behold, Steemian.Info is thus bringing you a new exciting page:

The Witness Block Production


The page is at https://steemian.info/witnessblocks. It's also accessible from the home page and the navigation bar (Witnesses/Witness Tools/Block Production).


  • Today, yesterday and monthly data for 2018.
  • The current monthly production is ongoing and is cached daily. Today data is updated with a browser refresh.
  • The position is based on the received votes for the listed witnesses who produced blocks for the shown periods, it does not necessarily reflect their blockchain ranking.
  • Disabled witnesses are shown in red and crossed out.
  • The time periods are expressed using the blockchain UTC timestamps.
  • Best viewed on a desktop browser with minimum 1000px width.
  • The table is sortable by clicking on the headers.

Keep in mind that the blocks produced do not have a 1:1 equivalent in reward. In fact, the Top 20 witnesses are rewarded with 0.199 SP (Steem Power) per block, while the rest of the witnesses get 5x that amount, which is 0.995 SP. The reward slightly varies; months ago it was around 0.970 SP.

For example, a witness generating 20 blocks per day:
20 blocks x 30 d x 0.995 SP = 597 SP/month (or 7164 SP/year)

Whereas a Top 20 witness gets rewarded for 1 block every 63 seconds, that is:
(60 s x 60 m x 24 h) / 63 s = 1371 blocks

Which is a monthly:
1371 blocks x 0.199 SP/block x 30 d = 8185 SP/month (or 98220 SP/year)

Because of the varying nature of the reward as well as the STEEM market prices, I didn't include those in the table.

Finally, I think it's a good tool for witnesses to monitor their progress. For instance, if a witness is producing 2 blocks per month for the last 6 months, perhaps they need to re-evaluate their strategy and expenses.

I hope you find the page useful, enjoy.

Okay, so this rocks, first of all. Way to make an already excellent tool (steemian.info) even more awesome. Second, I mistyped the link the first time, and I got your 404 page, and ohmygod did it make me laugh. lol! ;-)


ROFL, you have no idea how much I enjoyed making that 404 page. I spent my day staring at it.


Freaking hilarious. You get the award for Best 404 Page Ever! 😂


Sucks though that Chrome have disabled autoplay in the newest versions. I'll try to find a workaround for that. Otherwise, the 404 page plays fine in Firefox and other normal browsers.


i agree, best 404 page on the net..... I howled laughing the first time i found it.


Hello.... that is awesome.


You made me curious... now I wanna see it too! Thanks :-)

Anything to help the Witnesses in their valuable work is a positive in my book. Thanks @drakos, for all you do.

Fantastic work with this and thanks for doing it dude! It'll be helpful for everyone witnessing the blockchain.


And helpful for those who like to whine about the witness rewards. Although we're a far cry from EOS block producers rewards 😅


We're light years away from that lol! #55 there makes some 1K+ a day which is ridiculously insane. I could power a shit ton of marketing activities around Steem blockchain in India if it was the same here. lol

It's an interesting tool! I could try it and see how it goes, thanks for the information :)

I always wondered how profitable witnessing was.... Its "holly crap profitable." Haha.
Thats why some witnesses are super nice. Haha

Thanks a lot for creating steemian.info. I've writen this post about adding steem dollar to binance and I think it's important for all the community. I voted for you as a witness two months ago and I hope for your support, thanks.

@drakos what is this? plz tell me sir? i want to work with you propprly plz tell me some thinks about steemit

information are usable.
can you tell me more info about how to increase steem power ? @aaatish


You can increase Steem Power by blogging and getting upvotes (you can upvote yourself too), or buying STEEM and powering up.

It's interesting that outside of the top 20 it seems to be about 1 block / day per 1,000 MVests worth of votes. Obviously it's not exact, but it seems to be surprisingly close throughout the list.

Thanks for yet another useful tool @drakos!

Good day @drakos! How do you think are witnesses need to share their profit with people who voted for them?

Thanks for sharing! A link to your post was included in the Steem.center wiki article about Steem Witness. Thanks and good luck again!

Wow! You made a new page @drakos, it must be incredible that feeling to see that you did a great job. Congratulations!!
the more detailed information is better and the most important

Thank you for this amazing piece of information. I wrote a piece on Seele's amazing Blockchain 4.0 here https://steemit.com/airhawk-project/@foley/seele-blockchain4-0-vs-existing-blockchain-technology an upvote from you would be nice. Thank you
