Block Producer Candidate Report #4 - March 28, 2018
WEEKLY EOS BLOCK PRODUCER CANDIDATE REPORT #4
THIS WEEK'S NEWS and NOTES
Report #4 includes five new block producer candidates. As announced last week, starting with this report BPCs without at least one URL showing clear evidence of candidacy are no longer listed or included. Though we had 70 names collected as of this report, only 41 valid block producer candidates are listed.
Summary of additions this week:
- 5 new block producer candidates.
- All candidates graded by 6 check mark criteria for posting public auditable information, as explained here
- Reformatted URLs and added Steem introduction posts to the report, alongside regular website URL.
- Implemented a "warning" icon for BPCs whose URLs may require caution, for example expired SSL certificates or questionable practices such as requesting token donations or public-key registration.
EOS Go does not support the practice of any BPC requesting tokens, public keys, or PII (personally-identifiable information) during the candidacy period leading up to launch. Please modify candidacy requirements to be included on future reports.
Check-Mark Criteria Charts
Check marks earned according to criteria for posting public ID information, randomized for Reports #4 and #5.
Starting with Report #6 on April 11 the list will be ordered by check-mark totals, highest to lowest, with each sub-section randomized within the high-low overall sort. (E.g., all BPCs with total of say, 5 checkmarks, will be randomly-listed within their peer grouping.)
Please contact [email protected] to discuss / amend your listing no more than (72) hours after the publication timestamp of this report; we will offer one edit to this image for missed information.
(List with links to all 41 candidates is below this chart, including new Steem post additions)

FOR BP CANDIDATES:
Please provide us with two URLs containing important public information about your candidacy: 1) Your main public web site, 2) your current SteemIt verification posting. To update your URL listing please send an email request to: [email protected]
BPCs without at least 1 URL showing clear evidence of Block Producer candidacy are no longer listed. To have your BP Candidacy re-listed please submit a valid URL or Steemit post with information about your candidacy to: [email protected] OR through the original BP Candidate form.
**New candidates - to be included in this report, please fill out this form or email [email protected]
BPC information is accepted on a rolling basis. The current on-line form for submitting data is this GoogleForm. (NOTE, this link may change over time, be sure you are looking at the most-recent version of this Weekly BPC Report to get the correct link.)
BPC list randomization is performed with the Shuffle tool in the AbleBits Power Tools plugin for GoogleSheets.
Why Steem? In the interest of fairness and transparency we request all BPCs to post information on a blockchain-backed platform where content cannot be silently altered or removed. This provides short- and long-term assurance to all parties -- other block producer candidates, EOS token holders, and the interested general public.
EOS Go includes SHA256 checksums for important data-containing image attachments in our SteemIt posts to ensure long-term content integrity and verifiability. (As of this writing SteemIt does not include a native mechanism for ensuring image integrity, read more here if interested.) We add SHA256's shortly after the initial post goes up to avoid process-related mismatches due to images being re-encoded server-side during the posting process.
Additionally, EOS Go archives a local snapshot of the raw BPC form submission data (a .CSV-format spreadsheet) at the close of each weekly period. The .CSV snapshot will be archived for at least 2 years and its SHA256 checksum is posted in the report. In the event of a serious discrepancy or conflict relating to the BPC registration process a trusted 3rd party (such as an arbitrator) could examine one or more weekly data snapshots to verify their chronological integrity.
