Hello stoners... Welcome to another episode of "Show Us Your Witnesses Weekly Contest".
Aim of the contest
To increase witness voting on the smoke blockchain as well giving knowledge of the roles witnesses play in ensuring a stable ecosystem. Due to too many disabled witnesses I decided to use to medium to get users remove votes for inactive witnesses and support and push up active witnesses.
This contest is targeted at ensuring continuous increase in the witness voting engagement rate occasionally published by @bbq-iguana.
Who are witnesses?
Witnesses are elected people that maintain the activities that take place within and outside the smoke block chain by putting in blocks, time stamping transactions (such as posts, transfers, exchanges, votes, etc) and validating them with signatures.
This however, has ignited the true and worthy saying
NO WITNESSES = NO SMOKE BLOCKCHAIN.
HOW TO VOTE FOR WITNESSES
Click this link https://smoke.io/~witnesses
When it opens, you will see a list of witnesses. If your choice witnesses are among the 30, click on the corresponding upvote icon to vote.
The rule of this contest & how to get down your entry
Please RESMOKE this post for wider visibility.
You must vote for at least 15 witnesses (you can vote for the maximum 30 allowed witnesses if you have reasons to). Visit http://smoked.herokuapp.com/@yourusername (substitute @yourusername with your Smoke.io username). Scroll down and you will see the all the list of all the witnesses you voted for. Screenshot/snapshot it.
In not more than 60 words, state the roles #witnesses play in keeping alive the smoke blockchain as a reply comment to this contest article; and upload the screenshot/snapshot of your chosen witnesses under your comment[use imgur or steemit/whaleshares to host the image then copy it here] . You can refer to this post made by @betgames to get a detailed guide on who a smoke witness is and their responsibilities on the blockchain.
All your chosen witnesses must be active at the time of choosing them. To find out those that are active, refer to the Part I under How to vote for witnesses above or visit this made by @trees http://trees.witness.pw/smoke_witness_info.php to know active witnesses.
This contest lasts for 7 days. Rewards follows thereafter.
Every entry receives 4:20 smokes each. And an upsmoke from at least myself.
I would suggest everyone consider voting for witnesses that have a solid track record of being active for many months.
