What is a Block Producer?

Block producers (BPs) are the decentralized entities governing the FIO blockchain. FIO uses a mechanism called Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) to come to an agreement on blocks; which transactions are applied to the blockchain, and, as a result, which state or data is stored in the blockchain. For a block producer to produce blocks, those who hold FIO tokens must vote for them. The more tokens a person has, the more influence their votes have on the block provider selection process. The process is continual. Every 63 seconds, the FIO blockchain nodes reschedule the block producers based on the votes accumulated until that point. The top 21 are then selected to produce blocks.

Block producers are rewarded for their efforts and they need to be reliable and trustworthy. Having a solid reputation is key to being a successful block producer. It is our goal at Currency Hub to support the FIO community through, our interactions with the FIO Foundation, other block producers and through community outreach & evangelism. We would like thank everyone who has voted for us, your continued support is very much appreciated.
