Q&A - Why Are There Currently Multiple EOS Candidate Chains?

June 05, 2018 / by Alexandre Bourget

Confused by what you've been hearing about EOS multiple chains? Let us help clear things up! Alexandre from EOS Canada discusses the common misconceptions that are floating around regarding the multiple candidate chains that are currently being tested.


 Transcription:

Hello everyone. I wanted to clear out a simple misconception I've seen here.

I think people have perceived that they've seen chains launched by a certain group, and another chain launched by another group, and all that.But I want to clarify what is the chain. If we launch a chain - anyone launches a chain - and today actually maybe a hundred people on Earth can launch a chain that will resemble mainnet. It has everything we need in there. So the chain is literally a database. Think of MySQL: it's a database that's well known. You can insert things in there and then you look at the content of the database and you say does it have all the rows and columns I want? Does it have all the - like for example in EOS - does it have all of the snapshot in there? Does it have the proper contracts, so they have a good balance? Does it honor everyone in the ERC 20 crowd sale? That's the chain, it's the content. It's not anyone's chain. Because in the end, 50 entities could start the chain and they would all be a chain that we like or we want. Because it contains what everyone wants.

It doesn't really matter who starts it or whatnot. So the goal of the community right now is just to test any chain that people are launching, so that it fits the bill and everyone can see through the validation tools that everyone is running, that this chain, or that chain, or that chain, are all a good chain. We want all the things to be properly validated. The community is doing that right now. So I don't think there's a divide there.
