Can Your Witness Vote Really Make a Difference? See for yourself.
As per the data collected over the past week from steemian.info:
51,895 votes are cast for inactive witnesses (dead witnesses).
= a grand total of 202,368 MV worth of votes
Which is more than enough to put any 4 active witnesses into the top20!
Or more, depending on where the witness is currently on the ladder.
Basically, what this means is that with the current votes that us Steemians have out there we can literally change any and all of the governance within our ecosystem.
I am only talking about the people who have active votes in place.
So, the next time anyone says “My vote can't make a difference“ or something along those lines, there it is.
YOUR VOTE CAN MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE.
So I would kindly ask all the 26,009 Steemians who are voting on dead witnesses to please take into consideration the fact that THESE VOTES CAN MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE!
I have (will) gone ahead and tagged all Steemians who have voted on dead witnesses, as this is the prime target of this information here.
I don’t know how else to get their attention, except for maybe sending DM’s via Discord for the next 3450 days in a row. I think this is easier and more effective.
NOTE: I am not judging anyones choices/vote, all I wish to do is to point out the fact that your votes can make a real difference and that there are many of us witnesses who are active and who sincerely care about Steem, no matter what the market prices may be. We are in it for the long run.
PS. As was suggested in the comments below, here are two links where you can take care of witness voting:
& here is another great tool out there to check on witness votes: http://duplibot.com/deadwitnesses
(again, a link supplied via a comment in this thread).
NOTE: if you were tagged, all that means is that in the past week of collecting data you had one or more witness votes which were for inactive witnesses. With this tag/post, all I wish to do is to suggest how your vote can make a difference in our governance as per our Steem ecosystem.
Thank you for your time and I sincerely hope that you shall take a moment to think about the importance of the point that I am trying to make here via this post.
