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.
- 1.When a user publishes a post or comment, a
commentoperation 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.
- 2.If some users consider this post or comment worth it, they may upvote it. These upvotes are stored in the blockchain as
voteoperations and stored in the TxVotes table in HiveSQL.
- 3.After 7 days, if the post or comment has received enough powerful upvotes, the user is awarded a payout for it and an
author_rewardvirtual operation is recorded in the blockchain. The user did nothing to trigger it, the system did it automatically.
