Today on April 12, 2019, we are glad to announce the EOS mainnet’s constitution was changed from the interim version to the new EOS User Agreement (EUA), authored mainly by EOS New York and with lots of community input. EOS Canada celebrates this governance milestone and hope you do as well.
We have recently received comments regarding our abstention from voting on any referendums posted to the
eosio.forum contract as well as some highly visible
msig proposals. In this article, we would like to clarify our position. We believe our role is to gather the opinion of the community, and then enact it.
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.
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.
A prominent Korean Crypto YouTuber, KillaWhale, recently hosted a panel to discuss the Worker Proposal System of EOS. Some of the key points were: how it could benefit the token holders, how it could be corrupted, and why it is important for the future of EOS.
EOS Canada wanted to take a moment to give an update about what has been worked on for the referendum contract for EOS, how we got here, and some of the next steps. This has been a collaborative effort, with many Block Producer teams working hand-in-hand.
