Updated witness votes & Additional smoke sponsorship

8 months ago

I was disappointed to see two active witnesses deactivate their witness nodes without a public update, so I've removed their votes and voted for several new witnesses.

I wish that some of the less active witness accounts posted updates every once in a while to let voters know your attention is still on the smoke network.

We should try to attract some standby witnesses from alternative graphene cryptocurrencies, I need a few more candidates to vote for 👍

I've sent another 10k SMOKE to @smokenetwork for sponsorship, it's not much but it's maintaining my #1 sponsor spot on the sponsorship page 😜

Check out my website, it's been updated a bunch recently and if I've resmoked any of your content on smoke.io it's over on smoke-indica too! 🎉

Looking forwards to everyone's future cannabis content on here & for the roadmap related developments.

What are you working on lately? How's your weekend going?

Take it easy 👍

Received a reply from grow-op, from two of their members actually around 24 and 12 hours ago. Surprised their node isn't back up yet. Acid has been buying several thousands of dumped SMOKE in recent weeks so he is still definitely all in on Smoke. :/

Our provider has been the crappiest, this has been the 3rd time they go down, are late to respond to customer service and we don't even get any time added for the days it has been down - so needless to say we decided to switch thus it is going to take a bit longer.

To OP: apologize for the little communication about it, we're hoping to not face these issues anymore in the future and some of us are still very active and will hopefully find the time to get back to doing what our secondary plans for our witness were as well.

Hopefully you get it sorted out soon.

Yes acid is still purchasing smoke, curating and commenting like a mad man. Is acid part of grow-op witness? Also been trying to contact grow-op

·
·

Yes, he's one of three. He replied that he forwarded it to their tech member and Elliot also replied having acknowledged notice that witness was down. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This is not the first time that an active witness deactivate his witness node without a public update! / And some of the new witnesses will leave and others will join us soon or later, but the real ones will stay here with us forever !

How's your weekend going?
Usually, I read what I posted the last week as I believe it might help me to come with better content the next week. Who know ?! Have a great weekend.

RELAXING, CURATING, SMOKING. I AM SOMEWHAT WORRIED ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING WITH ALL THE CBD STRAINS HERE IN NEVADA, VEGAS IN PARTICULAR. IT'S BEEN A SOLID MONTH THAT I HAVE NOTICED NO MORE COMPANIES SEEM TO BE MAKING THOSE NICE HIGH NUG RUN CBD AND THC DABS. IT'S THE BEST FOR MY PAIN. I USED TO FIND DABS 40%THC % 30 CBD LIKE NOTHING. NOW, YOU CANT FIND THAT....

·

Any luck online or does nevada not have online delivery yet?

·
·

for cbd that's hemp derived yes, but not for nug run, high cbd yielding strains. That's the CBD dabs that help that deep seated pain.

·
·
·

That's very strange.. Can you grow your own yet?

·
·
·
·

NOT IF YOU LIVE WITH IN 25 MILES OF A DISPENSARY. ITS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE IIN VEGAS TO LIVE THAT FAR. THEY KNOW

·

Yeah cbd flowers have increased 4-5x in the UK which really sucks :(

Hey @Indica, besides being hot as hell, my weekend's going great. I just got home, I took a couple of days off and went to my sister's house where my outside grow is happening, did some trimming, topping, and staking. They're doing great, they're about 5-feet tall. Thanks for the update and post:D

I'm back, apologies, my intentions have not changed and I will endeavour to keep my witness running forevermore

·

Cool I'll update my votes soon then 👍

I updated my votes. Even though I don't check Smoke.io every day I still check my witness. Running smoothly :)

Thanks for the update, just adjusted my witness votes now.. So sad to see too many disabled witnesses 😢

·

Yeah it's pretty sad to see so many people have come and gone 😬

The witnesses will get that shit figured out.. maybe someone sleeps bong water on the laptop.. I'm camping and working all weekend

No idea what a witnesses is, I am so new

All data in the chain, and which you can see here on Smoke.io, or on @indica’s smoke site, is stored in a so-called “distributed ledger”, a blockchain.

The “ledger”, a collection of immutable blocks, is hosted by multiple people. We call this “witnesses”, on other blockchains they may be called nodes or block producers.

In this system, DPOS, every 3 seconds a block is produced by a different witness. This means that all transactions are written and validated in the chain every 3 seconds.

By being distributed, the blockchain is “censor-resilient” because no [single] entity could take down the chain/platform without taking down all the witnesses. Google, or the Feds, could tomorrow take down YouTube just because they can everything is operated by a single entity/company.

You can not take down Smoke because we have 30+ (not enough) witnesses, all hosting the blockchain's data in multiple locations around the world. Basically, to take down Smoke you would have to subpoena at least 20 data centers — which requires cases against multiple people based around the world,in many different jurisdictions. And many with their witness servers in legal states.

Because every three seconds a block is produced, and 14 witnesses are needed to “make blocks immutable” (read: validate the data and store on their server version of chain), after 45 seconds data in the chain can not be changed anymore... without halting the chain and going back in time. Removing one post from 3 days ago would mean that ALL BLOCKS (more than 4,000) produced since would be erased and all data in them is then erased as if “they didn’t happen”.

Obviously, that is something which would require absolutely “awesome” reasons to do. Most witnesses wouldn’t be prone to rewrite history of the chain and erase thousands of transactions (and rewards earned by people).

We, witnesses, guarantee by operating that your data is stored, available, and can not be attacked by bad actors who may not like our topic or you.

Smoke isn’t Instagram, Twitter, Reddit or Facebook... you can’t get shadow banned or banned here. Even if a post was flagged into oblivion, the post — and your account — still exist on the chain and are accessible via command line or sites which may decide not to hide flagged posts.

Better even... you still have access to your account and... your rewards/earnings. Because to nuke those... witnesses would have to rewrite history and go back in time to erase that actual post which would mean... we erase everything from everyone since that date.

Btw, such an action would also require a “super majority”, so 17 of the top 20 witnesses would need to approve of nuking the rewards of hundreds, maybe tens of thousands by then, people over that period.

Not gonna happen. ;)

You aren't that new ;) Time to do some reading on how dPOS works :P

·
·

Was a bit confused about that too when I saw his rep, lol.

·
·
·

I feel like I should do something about my rep, but that really requires posting and I already posted 26 days ago.... I am happy curating :)

·
·
·
·

Just comment more often and it'll rise as people up vote you

·
·
·
·
·

Yeah, I don't worry too much about rep but I figure in time others might so I may be able to help them along more.

·
·
·

Yeah haha he's got one of the highest reps 😜

·

It's someone who runs a server which maintains the smoke network's blockchain.

Hey @indica, I haven't checked my witness list for quite some time, I will have to do a refresh as well. Bong on bro.

·

Yeah man check once every couple weeks, seems to be changing quite rapidly.

Thanks for the reminder. Have just updated all my witness votes as not checked for a while and was voting for a a lot of the disabled witnesses.

Hello @indica, I'm at the herb harvest. Currently the marjoram flowers, pick each one directly from the plant. The bumblebees are not bothered by me in their work. Here is a look at a part of my harvest.

Is that smokeable?

·
·

As far as I know it is only edible.

·
·
·

So why post it?

·

I read "What are you working on lately?" in your post tagged with Offtopic, so I decided to write an answer, sorry. Have a nice day!

Fair enough man, sorry. Take it easy ✌
