Referendum Voting From an Air Gapped Computer

March 08, 2019 / by Josh Kauffman

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.

Sign Your Transaction Offline

We wanted to draw attention to a previous walkthrough we had created for using eosc to easily vote from an air gapped computer. To ensure the utmost security for your private keys, never exposing them to a machine that has access to the internet is the most important step to take. But being able to sign a transaction from that air gapped machine is no easy feat, unless you have the right tools, like eosc.

In that walkthrough, if you replace the command eosc vote producers with eosc forum vote, you can easily craft your transaction and sign it in a completely secure way. This will give you the peace of mind you require, while allowing you to voice your opinion along with every other token holder who chooses to do so.

Why Voting is Important

As custodians of the network, we believe that our role as a Block Producer is to secure the network and enact the will of the token holder. This was one of our main motivations for writing the eosio.forum smart contract for use by any EOSIO chain. This delivers a simple solution for on-chain voting, allowing token holders to signal their opinion in a clear way.

To feel comfortable knowing that we are enacting the will of the community, and not just that of a small engaged minority, we would like to take this opportunity to remind users that there is a multitude of options when it comes to voting.

Please take a moment and let us know what you think by casting your vote. If you have any questions, feel free to join us in our Telegram channel, or join the EOS Community Referendum channel
