I have updated my witnesses.

in #steemlast year

No I did not proxy you, or vote blindly for the top 20. But after watching, I did throw my dolphin weight behind a few new candidates.

It all started one stormy Valentine's Day, but when the bullets started flying, I started working on the 'what's next' for me, my fund and our projects. We remain committed to building on blockchain, even many blockchains, the applications that we see to empower a better world. So I wrote on the fund post:


I was voting for some witnesses, and I thought that was fine. I was pretty sure I was voting for some of the top 20.

But then... a real life wizard appeared.


A message from a wizard made me reconsider. I went to check my witnesses. I noticed I was not voting for anyone near the top. I checked the list, I checked my list....

Today I made some changes.


If we analyze the board, we can see the position we are in on steem. Today I have added witness votes to @gtg, @anyx, @yabapmatt, @aggroed and @steempress, who is now looking to make a run into the top 20.

Additionally, I had already been voting for @drakos, @lukestokes.mhth, @steempeak, @emrebeyler, @actifit and @netuoso, solid and caring witnesses in the next tranche down .


I am full at 30 votes, but still consider that I have a bit of dry powder in reserve.

Longer Term Solutions?

I would like to bring attention to this Proposal for NEW DPOS by @rycharde. He is proposing 8 votes per accounts, which will make the top 20 more robust. I will be resteeming the post after publishing this one.


Please witnesses, do consider some actual solutions not just to the current woes, but to the attack vector in general. Thank you all for your time!

Love and Light!


Thank you @ecoinstant, for using the CO2 Compensation Coin (COCO) to reduce your CO2 footprint.

It should be 7...

I am not against 7.

8 is proposed as a short term step to give time for.further discussion. I quite like the idea of 1 token 1 vote.

that's not that easy as might sound, we can talk about simulations and pros/cons when the dust settles down, but that simple change isn't simple and brings more risks

Hi @gtg, are you referring to @ecoinstar's "1 token 1 vote" or my original proposal here? Thanks.

If the latter, what concerns do you have?

Would really appreciate the input of someone who understands the chain's coding - I'm coming to this from a pure mathematics angle.
