EOS Canada is happy to announce its support of the launch of the BOS mainnet by becoming a Block Producer. As builders of data infrastructure for developers with dfuse and eosq, we are even more excited by how we can leverage both chains to bring more value to the many EOSIO chain users.
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.
Months ago, EOS Canada began work on a smart contract to fulfill the promise of on-chain referenda for the EOS mainnet. The eosio.forum contract is now ready to become a system contract. We have created a multisig proposal for review by Block Producers and would like to run through the proposal.
Keen observers will have noticed that on the EOS blockchain there are system accounts that control various functions. These are all denominated by the prefix eosio.*. At EOS Canada, we felt it would be useful to provide an overview of which system accounts exist, and what they each control.
Brandon Parker, also known as HappyMoneyMan, invited Alexandre Bourget to his podcast "The EOS Podcast" to discuss all things EOS. They focused on our new dfuse API, sidechains and interblockchain communication, decentralization and when it adds value, microforks and the CPU issues that may cause them, and much more!
Microforks can happen on any blockchain. Alexandre explains what a microfork is, when one would happen, and why it would happen.
