@blockbrothers complete witness vote list September 2019 + two upcoming changes.


@blockbrothers are already very active in the community through @exyle and @s3rg3 (Dutch Community), @brittandjosie (our community manager) and our own @blockbrothers account.

We are also the developers behind Steemify.

But we like to do more.

In December 2017 we released a post here where we clearly state which witnesses we vote for and why.

Since that time many Steemians have entrusted us with their proxy witness vote and our vote has grown to an impressive 1300 MV (to put that into perspective @freedom, one of the biggest accounts on the blockchain has 18000MV).

We have a healthy mix of community witnesses and developers.

Here is the new monthly list for September with upcoming changes.

If you like our choice for witnesses you can set @blockbrothers as your witness proxy and we will honor that trust.

Set blockbrothers as your proxy via SteemConnect


The following witnesses we still approve of but will be rotated out:

@partiko Not updated their witness server since 20.7

You have @fyrst-witness listed as a developer witness but @frystikken is no developer. Why is that a "developer witness"?

Fair point. Edited. Thanks for mentioning it.
