Weekly Top 100 Witness Movers and Shakers

Top 100 Movers and Shakers.jpg

Understanding the role Witnesses play in the Steem ecosystem is often misunderstood, by the bulk of new Steemians. Without Witnesses, we wouldn't have a working blockchain, and without a blockchain, we wouldn't have Utopian-io, Steemit, Busy, Dtube, Dlive or any of the other popular Steem interfaces.

And although there are plenty of tutorials around showing you how to vote for a Witness we don't appear to keep track of the Witness movements on a weekly basis, to help you to make informed decisions.

Some might not even be aware they have 30 witness votes to cast, regardless of when you started.

So I'm taking on the responsibility to maintain a Weekly Top 100 Witness Chart to keep track of the movers and shakers in the Steem ecosystem.

Who are the Steem Witnesses?

Now there are a number of ways to find the top witnesses in Steem but all are snapshots of moments in time. And unless you have a really good memory there's no way to see if your favorite Witness is moving up or down the ranks.

And if you don't know how they're tracking you won't even realize they need your help to maintain their top 20 witness position.

But what are Steem Witnesses?

On the Steem blockchain, witnesses serve a role of validating signatures and timestamping transactions by including them in blocks. A block is any group of transactions (posts, votes, transfers, etc) which update the state of the database. Each time a witness produces a block, they are paid for their service. If a witness fails to produce a block, then they are not paid, and may even be voted out.

Every round of block production begins with the shuffling of 21 witnesses: the top 20 witnesses (by vote), plus one randomly-selected standby witness. Each is given a turn to produce a single block at a fixed rate of one block every 3 seconds. If a witness does not produce a block in their time slot, then that time slot is skipped, and the next witness produces the next block.

Sourced from Steemd

Here are a few places you can find static information on the current Steem Blockchain Witnesses

Steemd.com - https://steemd.com/witnesses

Steemit.com - https://steemit.com/~witnesses

And although my Top 100 List is based on a couple of weekly snapshots too, it provides a weekly insight into the Witness Movers and Shakers over the last week.

But it's also important to recognize these results may have an impact, as smaller STEEM rewards could result in a Witness contributing less to popular community projects. Or perhaps a Winess moving into the Top 20 has more capacity for philanthropy and could be approached to support your new project.

So without further adieu, here is this weeks list:-

Data Sources

Weekly snapshot data is being collected from https://steemd.com/witnesses and is being collated manually as I currently don't have the skills to produce an automated report from the Steem blockchain.

However, if this weekly chart proves to be useful I'll work on automating it directly from the blockchain or via SteemSQL.com rather than using an Excel spreadsheet to do the bulk of the computational work.

Conclusion

This work is a proof of concept and in future updates, I'll provide further insight into the biggest movers of the week. So you can learn if there have been significant efforts to move up the Witness rankings or if it's simply a result of a power shift.

Before I started collating this data, I assumed the Top 100 Witnesses were fairly static, although we can see from these results, this is not actually the case.

In fact, almost 50% of the Top 100 Witnesses shuffled around during the week, but there were no surprises in the Top 20 as these top earners were fairly stable.

If you find this Top 100 Chart useful please let me know in the comments below and include any suggestions I can use to improve this weekly post.

Thanks, mate. That's really cool.
Not just the movement, but also the length of the list. The site only shows the top 20, and I vote for several outside that. Cheers.

·

Yeah, I'm pretty keen to track a few of my 'outside' votes too.

Great article mate. There is so little transparency about this stuff. I think this kind of article is really informative. I hope you keep it up!

Informative. 😊

Great post to keep track of the top 100 witnesses movement.

With this information I need to campaign more to encourage steem community to vote for me (@yehey) and what I’ve been doing in the background to make steem work smoothly.

I’ll take this opportunity and I hope you don’t mind.

Just a short list of projects.

  • I maintains steem servers (nodes) to process steem information. See my witness updates.
  • I maintain and run steem price feed server every hour.
  • https://steeming.com website promoting Steem to the world.
  • https://SteemChat.com steem chat at discord.
  • @broadcast as steem faucet running at steem chat.
  • up voting 40% of my vests deserving minnows and authors with good content.
  • delegation of SP to utopian-io supporting open source projects.
  • and other small project.

Steem blockchain powered by hundreds of Witnesses, not just the Top 20. Look around and see other hard working witnesses that support this community.

Vote for me at https://on.king.net/Witness simple click and vote.

Thank you,
@yehey

On the plus side, near the tail end of the list it's easier to move up and down with a few extra decent sized votes.
Go for it!

Your contribution cannot be approved because it is not as informative as other contributions. See the Utopian Rules. Contributions need to be informative and descriptive in order to help readers and developers understand them.

Dear @just2random, your contribution is showing the difference in the top 100 witness list from steemd from 7 days apart. That's a visualization of the current state, but the analysis aspect is a bit on the short end.

Unrelated to this rejection, you may want to check @witnesswatch, who are doing a weekly report on related aspects.

You can contact us on Discord.

Thanks for your feedback and next week I may add extra analysis as suggested in the post.
