If we as @blockbrothers learned anything from recent events of this bear market and the layoffs at Steemit Inc. is that there is a huge need from the community to hear from witnesses.
Today we would like to shed some transparency on which witnesses @blockbrothers vote for and why.
There might be some unexpected witnesses here.
If you like our choice for witnesses you can set @blockbrothers as your witness proxy and we will honor that trust.
Below you will also find a list of the new witnesses we will rotate in and the once we will rotate out soon.
We will be transparent about our witness choices from now on and in the future and will inform the community before we make any changes.
