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!
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.
Earlier today, Thomas Cox from Block.one notified the community of a change that needed to be made to Article IX of the EOS Constitution. The change names a different default arbitration forum. In fact, it is the same forum that was named for over a month, until the recent changes were made by Dan Larimer and Thomas Cox.
Inflation of EOS tokens drives the entire system - funds the Block Producers, the Worker Proposal Fund, and allows for free transactions for users. The launch of the EOS network is fast approaching and we still see a lot of questions surrounding the inflation system. We would like to clear up a few things.
As the launch of the EOS blockchain approaches, a group of Block Producers are testing the EOS BIOS sequence to work through the software to help ensure a successful and secure launch. The `eos-bios` tool allows for multiple stages to take place. Here is the report with the highlights and improvement of the Stage 16.
Block.one announced that the EOS blockchain infrastructure would support the use of Ricardian Contracts. We at EOS Canada believe that it’s worth taking the time to understand what a Ricardian Contract is, and why the community should care about this important addition to the infrastructure.
EOS Canada has chosen the slogan “Leading Through Technology.” Our team is deeply rooted in technology creation, and we strive to share our skill set with the EOS blockchain user base. This is our roadmap of tools and information that we propose to offer to the EOS network.
