WITNESS WEEKLY @ 4 June 2021

in #witness-category2 years ago (edited)

It has been an eventful week in Witness World.

There has been one new witness arrive.

And there has been one old witness leave - under unfortunate circumstances.

Aside from these arrivals and departures there have been no major movements in the witness rankings.

If any witnesses have any information they would like to share feel free to contact me on Discord (Pennsif#9921) or leave a comment below.

The Current Top 20 Witnesses

The make up of the Top 20 Witnesses have remained the same this week with only a few minor movements up and down.

In the top 10 @dlike and @future.witness have traded places again.

In the #11 to #20 spots a few witnesses edged up one or two ranks, while a few have similarly moved down.

The current top 20 witnesses for the Steem Blockchain on 4 June 2021 are :


There are a further 30 or so active backup witnesses mainly in the #20 - #45 slots.

All top 42 witnesses are running the current 0.23.1 version.

Most of the witnesses from #43 and below are 'former' witnesses that are running old witness versions (0.23.0 or 0.22.1) and have now moved to another blockchain.

Details of all the witnesses can be found in @steemchiller's Steemworld.org or on @symbionts's list at...

@steem.history also publishes a regular listing...

SteemAuto & @steem-supporter

Several of the top 20 witnesses including @symbionts, @future.witness and @jayplayco stepped in this week to deal with a serious issue that had arisen around the use of the SteemAuto app run by witness @steem-supporter.

The top 20 witnesses warned users to revoke their Posting Authorities and to stop using SteemAuto / Steemdb.online...

For more background to this issue check out the recent posts from @famigliacurione.

@steem-supporter has subsequently disabled his Steem witness.

New Witnesses

Steemit Crypto Academy Professor @abcallen added 'Steem Witness' to his job titles this week...

@abcallen is in China, and as well as producing his posts for the Academy, he regularly posts technically informative posts to help people on Steem.

Thanks for listing - some interesting reading and listening 😀

No, thank you! You could have just as easily shied away from the issue, or ignored it, but you published something that was important to the Steemit Community, and the Steem blockchain. And thank you for not being offended that I brought you into my satire!

Me encanta, me encanta, me encanta, estoy trabajando en un tutorial sobre como votar y por cuales testigos, utilizaré tu información para hacer una guía sencilla y que los niños hagan sus votaciones.

Pero te la voy a compartir para que por favor la revises, no quiero votar y equivocarme en masa jajajaja. Yo te avisaré cuando este lista. GRACIAS POR TODO.

Yo hice una y la bloque en la comunidad de Nursery

Both now on the list, thank you.
