Get Current Producer

Simple Summary

Provide the current producer to contracts


The Subjective Data proposal gives contracts a way to obtain subjective data, but doesn't provide a way for contracts to check its integrity. Contract authors could watch the behavior of their contracts over time for malicious producer behavior, but they don't have a reliable way to restrict their contracts from relying on data from bad producers. This ESR gives contracts this ability.


This consensus upgrade adds this intrinsic:

name get_current_producer();
  • When a transaction is speculatively executed, this returns the producer that is scheduled to produce at the current position.
  • When a block is being produced, this returns the producer that is producing it.
  • What a block is being validated, this returns the producer that produced the block.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
