How to vote for EOS Block Producers
So you’re an EOS token holder, and you want to vote for Block Producers. We’ll show how to vote Online, which for most people should be the preferred method. It’s relatively easy and still offers basic security. If you’re the paranoid type, follow our Offline voting guide instead.
If you’re worried about the security of your funds, but don’t want to spend hours to find out how to vote this method is for you.
Online method, based on Scatter & EosPortal.io
This method has three easy steps:
- Add the Scatter browser extension; it manages your private key and presents Actions to you for verification.
- Pair the eosportal.io website to Scatter
- Vote on Block Producers with eosportal.io
Adding Scatter to your browser
Scatter is a browser extension designed to safeguard your EOS private key. Let’s get it.
Configuring your existing EOS account
In this step, we’ll set up Scatter to authorize Actions for your account.
Scatter holds and protects your private key. It prompts you for confirmation whenever a supporting website wants to sign an Action with it. The 3rd party website, such as eosportal.io, never gets to see your private key, but receives the signed Action instead.
Voting for your preferred Block Producers
With scatter installed and connected to eosportal.io, you are ready to do the actual voting. We’ll set your voting power, select your preferred BP’s, and confirm the vote Action.
Here is where we humbly ask you to dedicate one of your votes to dutcheosxxxx. Read why we think we deserve it.
Congratulations, you have now voted! Thanks for using the DutchEOS guide and don’t forget to check our blog for more EOS-related goodness!
Keep in mind that after one week, your vote will slowly start to decay (lose its power). To keep your voice heard, come back to vote at least every month.
