Alexandre describes the reasoning behind the 15% voting threshold required to unlock the EOS blockchain.
Alexandre briefly describes `eosc` as well as where to download it from, and what it can do for you.
"Secure and simple voting" is how Alexandre describes the `eosc` tool. It can securely store your private keys, as well as send your Block Producer vote out to the EOS blockchain. Follow along as Alexandre walks us through these two important features.
Since the launch of the EOS Mainnet, EOS Canada has received many questions from the community. We wanted to provide a single place where users can find answers to understand voting on EOS. Feel free to send any questions you may have to our Telegram channel, and we will add to this list as needed.
The EOS mainnet has successfully been launched! Block Producers from across the globe are joining the network and will be eligible to receive your votes once they are connected. Please take the time to ensure you have researched which Block Producers you would like to see operating the EOS network on your behalf.
Multiple nodes have had the chance to go through the contents of the chain and verify its contents. The peers have given their approval that the on-chain contents match what they expect, and are confident that the launch was a great success!
A Long Journey
On 22 May 2017 a software company calling itself Block.One revealed EOS to the world, and announced their intent to launch a “new blockchain operating system designed to support commercial decentralized applications.” In the year since that first announcement, a passionate and diverse community has rallied around the platform. This community has grown to hundreds of thousands across the globe, united behind that original vision, working together towards the most ambitious decentralized launch effort of a public blockchain network the world has ever seen.
