Which Block Producers are performing well, and which cheaped out on hardware? Let's look at some gra

One interesting characteristic of EOS is that CPU billing isn't calculated objectively, as on other chains, but measured. When a block producer looks at including your transaction in a block, they run it, time how long it took to run, and deduct that amount of CPU from your account.

This makes it even more important to vote for good block producers. If block producers have cheaped out on hardware, then they'll take longer to process your transaction, which costs you more CPU, and reduces the scalability of the network. Even worse, a malicious block producer could deliberately overcharge for transactions they didn't approve of, effectively censoring them.
