Max Witnesses Update (10 to 18)

The core developers are issuing a chain variable update to increase the number of witnesses per Proof-of-Coverage transaction. We will be increasing poc_per_hop_max_witnesses to 18 from 10. The team believes that this increase in number of witnesses will improve the data available for the network to verify locations through PoC.

Given the performance of the validators and current blockchain participants, we believe this is a safe increase while keeping PoC rate stable. For folks who are new to the network, we were at 25 in the past and would like to get back to this number.

We intend to incrementally increase this limit and continue to tune to maximize witness diversity while monitoring performance. The core developers will continue to monitor the chain after this increase is rolled out.
