total_votes is a very strange number. How to get votes in EOS?

1 Answer 1


The votes is not the EOS amount, each EOS has a weight with time change, the half-decayed time is one year, the weight of one EOS is 2^(current year(2018)+(days since the year/365) - 2000), and you must multi 10000 because EOS has 4 decimals

Also take care that one account can vote to 30 nodes.
