Block Producer Candidate Report #9 - May 16, 2018
EOS BLOCK PRODUCER CANDIDATE REPORT #9, May 16 2018
Due to the increasing volume of BP candidacy announcements we are now helping everyone transition towards the new EOS Go Block Producer Research Site, where BP candidates maintain their own landing page with a quick overview and links to their information. All candidates are also presented on a large map and can update their own page of information any time. See this section of the site to learn more.
EOS Go will offer one more BPC Report before launch: Report #10, posted Wednesday May 30th.
We'd like to thank the EOS community for their patience during the unforeseen release delay of Report #9.
BPC Reports #9 and #10 include the additional and final 2 Checkmark Criteria:
"Block Producer Roadmap" and "Stance on Dividends."
BP Candidates - if you have not already submitted information to qualify for the final Checkmarks #7 and 8, please do so before the final BPC Report #10 submission cut-off time: Tuesday May 29 at 2359 UTC.
THIS WEEK'S NEWS and NOTES
- Report #9 includes 41 new block producer candidates.
- Reports #9 & #10 only contain links to the BP Research Portal to help streamline research for community members. Block Producer Candidates - please continue updating your page on the BP Research Portal with all links and info so the community can get a quick overview of your candidacy, and dive in for a deeper look through your links.
Check-Mark Criteria Charts
The list is 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.)
This report was updated May 20 to include two missed candidates and some additional check-marks for others.
(List with links to BP Candidate Research Site Pages is below this chart.)
Checkmark Criteria Summary
This chart summarizes how many BPCs out of the current total group size meet each of EOS Go's six community-reviewed "Checkmark Criteria" and two additional Checkmark Criteria, #7 and 8, for basic transparency and informativeness:
BPCs By Country
BPCs By Region
The Original Six Check Mark Criteria

4) SCALING PLAN: Estimated scaling plan for hardware after June 3, 2018 - posted to Steem blockchain. Rough outlines receive a check mark, open review gauges the effort.

FOR BP CANDIDATES:
Please continue to update your landing page on the BP Research Portal at https://bp.eosgo.io - the community should be able to easily get an overview of your candidacy and quickly find your most important links to learn more.
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 report #10 releasing May 30, 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.
As of BPC Report #8 EOS Go stopped including SHA256 checksums for in-line SteemIt images after it became clear that such protocol offers no reliable assurance of data integrity. SHA256 checksums do continue to apply to the privately-archived snapshots of raw BPC form submissions, as detailed below.
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.
