Staff Picks

Suggestion: Proposal for a capability-based facet-contract implementation for the STEEM blockchain. by @mattockfs [ideas]

The Steem blockchain is so dynamic such that it can house many kinds of applications. @mattockfs made a very lovely proposal to the Steem repository which, if implemented, could benefit the entire community. @mattockfs's proposal did not get staff picked just because the idea was solid. The way he structured and presented the plan, in a straightforward and understandable format, was also a significant factor. He provided both a technical overview and and a simple example to make his proposal easily implementable if the PO or other community devs decide to do so. This is an excellent example of the kind of contributions we want to see in the Idea category.

Witness of the people, by the people, for the people by @blockchainstudio [analysis]

This week’s staff pick for the Analysis category is @blockchainstudio's sixth and most in-depth contribution to date. Collating and processing witness and witness proxy data is a time-consuming and detailed task. It is also difficult to present and explain in a straight-forward manner. The analysis covers multiple angles with regards to Witness rankings and who's voting for each witness, using various criteria, and presents these findings superbly.
