What are Virtual Operations?
Virtual operations are operations resulting from the activity on the blockchain but, unlike classic operations, they are not initiated by users.
When a user publishes a post or comment, a
comment operation is issued by the user or the front-end it uses. This operation will be stored in the blockchain and in the TxComments table in HiveSQL.
If some users consider this post or comment worth it, they may upvote it. These upvotes are stored in the blockchain as
vote operations and stored in the TxVotes table in HiveSQL.
After 7 days, if the post or comment has received enough powerful upvotes, the user is awarded a payout for it and an
author_reward virtual operation is recorded in the blockchain. The user did nothing to trigger it, the system did it automatically.
