We have noticed many users in the EOS community talking about Block.one’s tokens, but there seems to always be some confusion around their vesting schedule. We at EOS Canada wanted to clear this up and present the code that handles this -- providing you with the definitive answer!
One fear that some large token holders may have around voting for on-chain referendums is the need to pull out their private keys if they are securely stored. With many accounts having never performed any actions since the launch of the chain, we believe that there needs to be a push to activate those account holders.
If you've gone through our Multisig and Permission series, you should know how to craft an account’s permission structure to provide the security that you need, and how to create an msig proposal. We can finally move on to gathering the required signatures over the blockchain.
Following the reading of our Overview of Multisig and Permissions on EOSIO and Using eosc to Update Your Account’s Authority Structure, you should now be comfortable with altering the authority structure of your account. If you have chosen to leverage the native multisig features for additional security, we must now discuss how to collect the required signatures to satisfy it.
On the second part of our Multisig and Permission series, we review how to update the authority structure of your account on an EOSIO blockchain, which is still somewhat of a mystery to many users. By using the correct tools and having a proper understanding of what the blockchain requires, it becomes rather simple and you’ll be able to harness the incredible power of this unique feature.
Two members from EOS Canada, Matt and Josh, were recently invited by Ashe Oro and Zane Whitener of eos.radio to take part in a panel discussion on the eosio.forum smart contract that Matt wrote, which was recently added to a system account. We were joined by Rohan of EOS Authority and Daniel from EOS Nation.
The EOS mainnet now has a live referendum system! The eosio.forum contract was recently approved and placed into a system account on the EOS mainnet by the Block Producers. With it comes the ability for token holders to clearly voice their opinion on many different matters that they feel are important to them. This is a huge step forward in on-chain governance in the blockchain space.
One of the differentiators that sets EOS apart from other blockchains is its resource staking mechanism -- users get access to chain-wide CPU and bandwidth resources by staking EOS tokens. However, with the incredible user and dapp adoption that we’ve seen, resource staking has also become a bottleneck at times. Block Producers and Block.one have both been working to resolve these issues.
