Do you know?

That witnesses 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.

You can read this well structured post made by @moonblocks to know more about witnesses and what they do.

The importance of witnesses is to not only keep the blockchain running smooth. I will be honest and say I don't know what they do behind the scenes, but I know without them SMOKE.io and other blockchains would not exist.

This is correct!

·

Hehehe, you got it right. No Witnesses no blockchain, thanks for your entry.

·
·

Thank you!!

Block Producers, secure the network you love and verify all transactions, example (Posts,comments,votes,follow, unfollow etc) are correct and able to provide Constant Rewards for the pool, with out them there would be no Rewards for your awesome content! : )

Many thanks, I have received my smokes. Keep up the great work and I pray you get more supporters to back you up.

The chain of blocks needs the witnesses to be able to operate them in addition to the users of Smoke.io they are an essential part of it something simple no witnesses no smoke.io

You joined during the first episode why joining again?

Now that I have my feet planted on solid ground here and have gone through the witness section, I think I'll be posting about this this coming week.

I was able to spend some time getting to know the witnesses and was able to vote for more over the last week.

Thank you for the prize! I love it. ^_^

Such a great initiative. Keep it up!

I hope we can get more people to join in and vote for the witness to keep smoke running decentralized.

Thanks for your support, let's make this get wider audience

Basically a witness is recruited by the calling: you have a project, you have a goal, you set yourself objectives within smoke and then you get yourself a server and start by providing backup infrastructure to the network.
The first 20 Witnesses make most of the blocks for the blockchian, and are the ones that decide whether a hard-fork is applied, and have in many cases very especialized roles, like user base growth, network infrastructure, economics, support to new users etc.

I just gave some votes to people I know doing great for here. I also believe many witnesses are active and supportive to smoke.io but I don't know. Will you please recommend some of them. I am happy to know some of them. Also, I don't want to vote randomly as well :D may be it is also not good

·

You can remove your vote if you think the witness is not doing his or her job properly

·

Maybe you can still choose me as your proxy, so I can help you do the voting.

Heck yea @jessica keep on educating folks about the importance of witness voting!

Thanks, I think we should give this a wider audience.
