On the Steem blockchain, witnesses serve the role of validating signatures and timestamping transactions by including them in blocks. A block is any group of transactions (posts, votes, transfers, etc) that update the state of the database. Each time a witness produces a block, they are paid for their service. If a witness fails to produce a block, then they are not paid, and may even be voted out.
Witnesses are generally expected to manage a reliable block producing node, implement a failover system, maintain a public seed node, tune blockchain operating parameters, but since Steem is a well know blockchain we need to have many different servers in various locations so as to keep the integrity of the network.
As a Steem user who wants to see this platform continue to grow and flourish, we all have 30 votes to cast for any Steem witness of our choice and I will say this is the most important 30 votes you will ever cast on this platform.
let's call them Blockchain Guardians or slightly used term block producers.
Meet our Blockchain Guardians is a series put in place to know more about our very own witnesses, there roles and obligations. We need them as much as they need us. Our witnesses are the Transaction bookers on the platform and thus it is our paramount importance that we do our due diligence before casting our votes.
I will start this series with my self so you can get to know me a bit more.
*Well as of right now I would vote for @enginewitty and @steemchiller they are going to be an essential part in rebuilding steem.
