📄 What is 'State of the Witnesses' ?
State of the witnesses will be a regular update provided to the community on the status of the Smoke.io witnesses. The intent is to keep members informed of what is happening on the platform and what witnesses are doing. It is important that members of the community vote for witnesses that represent them and are driving the platform in the right direction. These updates are not intended to be all inclusive, but should only be a portion of the information used for your decision making.
In addition to the overall status, each update will also feature one witness in the "Witness Spotlight". This will allow the community to get a deeper look into the person/group behind the witness and how they play a part in Smoke.io.
📰 Current Update
Not much has changed since last month other than we have gone from 15 to 17 disabled witnesses in the top 50 and NO active witnesses below 50 to vote up.
Witness are dropping like flies and it shows that when times are good many people are willing to jump on the witness bandwagon. But the true supporting witness are starting shine through as even when times are bad they see the value in the platform and continue to keep their witnesses running when it is not profitable. With 15 disabled witnesses in the top 50, many of them disabled for many months now, the effort I have made to trying and get members to remove voters has become futile. I guess the best approach going forward is to encourage members to keep the top 20 witnesses as active. We have seen a lot of very exuberant witness come on board with a bang and then disappear later down the road. I would suggest everyone consider voting for witnesses that have a solid track record of being active for many months. These are the witness that are here for the long haul and not just looking to capitalize on the project when times are good. Reward these long standing witnesses with your votes.
I'll continue to encourage votes for long standing witnesses regardless of their day to day activity on the platform. These are the witnesses that are keeping the "lights on" for everyone.
