This is great Alex. Some minor edits:

  1. Change Vote type to voting protocol
  2. Master of Ceremony under vote type to “Initial Ceremony” to match validator wiki
  3. This looks like core validators are only on core when they should be both core & sokol - may want to make clear that distinction
  4. Roman was selected through Initial Ceremony while Marat was selected through governance
  5. Angeleen is also a sokol validator as of May 19

Feel free to ping me if you have any other questions.

#10

@hashguide

Thanks man. I have to credit Igor though. His idea.


#11

Igor is filled with great ideas, somebody can only work on so much at once though!


#12

Alex, a slight correction.
I’ve been active with the project for a year now, per this initial post Walter Karshat, Notary Wannabe
A notary since Sept, participated in the initial testnet on Azure back in Aug.
Would not want an impression that I was ushered onto Sokol in 6 days.

Great job organizing all the information!
Walter


#13

Thanks for the heads up, Walter. I remember seeing your original post, but must of lost track of it during prep. Corrected to 2017-05-22.

Update: I’ve been using the miner creation date from the Core/Sokol Validators DApp for ‘Date Added’


#14

I have few suggestions:

  • if a validator applied before creation of Sokol network we should count from the date of creation of Sokol, Nov 18 2017
  • let’s add titles to all three tables

These updates have been made
