πŸ“„ 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.


πŸ“° Current Update

There is 28 disabled witnesses in the top 50, up 2 from last report. There is currently 1 disabled witnesses in the top 20, @jrswab. He is indicated that his node is in the process of re-syncing and will be back up today. There is currently 1 active witness below the top 50 - @eder-witness

There is some activity that I would like to make members aware of. @grow-op has been missing a substantial number of blocks over the last month (1215 last report / 1327 this report). These are NOT misses from a witness node being down and after 24hr would cause it to be auto disabled, but rather a running witness node that is consistently missing blocks in spurts. This also effects neighboring witness nodes and causes them to miss blocks. A substantial number of the missed blocks by witnesses with single digit misses can be attributed to this neighbor effect. This can go on indefinitely if not resolved. I have attempted to reach out in the witness discord and @cannaweedness buzzed them 5 days ago. While @grow-op remains in the top 20 every witness rotation is exposed. I highly suggest people consider removing their witness votes until this is resolved.

Missed Blocks

Top 20 Witnesses that have missed 10 or more blocks since last report are:

@cannaweedness (217) @grow-op (1327) @trees (186) @d00k13 (29)
