What is this chain about?

The young granddaddy of them all, this is what started it all off and the chain we got involved with over a year ago. It operates on the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) methodology which means the custodians of the chain — in this case the Block Producers (BP’s) — are voted in by EOS token holders and the top 21 ranked BP’s are responsible for signing blocks. BP’s are paid by 1% inflation on the network, top 21 BP’s are rewarded the most for this responsibility however there are also a number of standby BP’s that are also rewarded for their service provided they qualify for at least 100 EOS through sufficient votes. We actually created a video describing the Role of a BP.

Anyone with EOS tokens can cast votes for the Block Producers (BPs) that they think are adding the most value to the community. Their total token holding allows them to vote for up to 30 BP’s simultaneously i.e. If you had 1,000 EOS, you could give 1,000 “votes” each to your favourite 30 BPs.

Why are we a part of it?

We are extremely passionate about EOS and believe this historical blockchain will evolve into the transcendent platform we know it will be. We were one of the founding BP’s at launch in June and had the first independent voting portal very soon after launch. We’ve fully supported the whole EOS-Mainnet community by organising meetups in our native Australia, attending hackathons and BP Summits and support initiatives such as Chintai, pixEOS and Emanate.

WORBLI-chain

Network Monitorworbli.bloks.io

What is this chain about?

Worbli is a sisterchain to the EOS-Mainnet and has been created to be the first EOSIO Financial Services Network. It is also the first chain that has mandatory Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti Money Laundering (AML) verification on every newly created account.

Worbli’s goal is to develop a Financial District and the most cost-effect but developer-friendly platform whilst embracing the security and decentralised benefits of running on a blockchain.

The benefits of having such a financial platform are clear with one of the biggest positives being that all transactions taking place on the Worbli chain will be instant and fully transparent. You’ll be able to see your transaction traverse the network and arrive at the destination without the risk of it being intercepted on its journey. The chain has been live for some months and the Worbli team are working on new dApps and partnerships as well as their customer portal which allows users to register for accounts after being subjected to the associated Know Your Customer (KYC) checks.

Why are we a part of it?

Worbli approached us towards the end of 2018 and invited us to become one of their “top 21” Block Producers. Due to the sensitive nature of their business they have decided to have a set pool of BPs — 21 active and 9 standbys — rather than have votes and ranks for each candidate.

This is a very exciting space for us because there is a strong Australian presence in the Worbli Team and also bringing financial dApps and their associated benefits to the blockchain could revolutionise the financial industry for ever. It will remove the current borders in place for completing financial transactions between two geographically diverse counterparties whilst offering the security and transparency of the blockchain.

TELOS-chain

What is this chain about?

The Telos Blockchain was developed to address a number of challenges experienced on the EOS-Mainnet. A team of highly experienced members of the Blockchain community designed the Telos platform using EOSIO software with a specific focus on decentralisation, sustainability and governance.

Some of the main differences are:
That the token balances of accounts in the initial genesis snapshot of the chain were capped to 40,000. This was to prevent account holders with a high number of tokens (ie whales) from taking over the network and influencing the order of the Top 21. Token distribution is much more widespread on Telos because of this.

Telos rotates standby BP’s into a block producing position every 3–7 days. This ensures all standbys are ready to produce and also allows the main BP’s to have a period of downtime to perform maintenance. Any BP in a block producing position who drops blocks for 30 minutes is automatically kicked. This increases stability and resilience over time as the “good” BP’s will remain on the network whilst the less committed will slowly die away.

Telos has also implemented Inverse Weighted Voting, meaning that if you only vote for 1 or 2 block producers your votes have less weight than if you vote for 30. This encourages the majority of Telos members to become more educated about block producer candidates and discourages those who seek to vote only for themselves and their affiliates.

Why are we a part of it?

EOSphere decided to join up with Telos just prior to their launch after discussions with the Telos Launch Group. We were honoured to be invited to perform independent verification of the genesis snaphot. This is a crucial stage of any block chain launch and we were more than happy to oblige.

We’re very excited around the whole Telos ethos. The Telos Foundation are committed to providing a high-performing, scalable blockchain along with good governance. We agree with many of their principles and it seemed like a perfect fit for us to present ourselves as Block Producer candidates.

Similar to the EOS Mainnet, we also run our own proxy “goodguys4tls” and we vote for the best 30 BP’s that are fully compliant with the Telos BP standards.

FORCE-chain

Block Producer Nameforcesphere
Voting Tool: explorer.eosforce.io

What is this chain about?

The most recent addition to the EOSphere is EOSForce. Until recently this was a very little known sister chain based out of China. It launched very soon after the EOSIO Mainnet but outside of Asia it remained off most people’s radar.

The EOSForce chain also relies on Block Producers to sign blocks and govern the network but their voting model is completely different. Rather than 1 token allowing you to vote for up to 30 BP’s, as is on the EOSIO Mainnet, 1 EOSC token only allows you 1 single vote. So if you want to give a single vote to 30 different BPs, then you will need 30 tokens.

The second major difference is that the voter will receive a dividend back from the BP(s) they vote for. When BPs register on the network they have to commit to give a certain percentage back (from 0 to 100%). This is to encourage people to actively vote and participate in the network. There is a more in-depth article that you can read if you wish to discover the finer workings.

EOSForce is also derived from the EOSIO software, but is built with a multi-chain architecture. There is a single currency settlement layer chain connected to by multiple computing layer side chains to support dApps. This will enable security, high performance, inter blockchain communication innovation, easy dApp migration and a friendly developer environment.

Why are we a part of it?

We met up with some of the EOSForce team at the Oslo EOS BP Summit and after some discussions over the following weeks we decided that we’d like to participate in this up-and-coming EOSIO chain. The EOSForce team wanted to gain the interest and support of the Western World and we were looking to broaden our community and exposure in the Chinese / Asian space. We are also extremely interested in Inter Blockchain Communication (IBC).

It seems like a perfect match and we were very happy to join the network in early-January 2019. We feel the Chinese blockchain community are incredibly enthusiastic and have a solid understanding of the capability EOSIO can unleash. We are flattered to be invited as one of the first Western BP’s to join the EOS Force community.

BOS-chain

Block Producer Namebosphereiobp
Voting Tool: bos.bloks.io/vote
Network Monitorbos.bloks.io

What is this chain about?

The goal of BOS (Business Operating System) is to build an EOSIO ecosystem that supports many dApp’s and solves real-world problems using blockchain technology. From the perspective of the evolution of the blockchain, in addition to being an EOSIO base chain for dApp’s, BOS can also serve as a circulation chain for various other blockchains, coins or tokens (BTC / ETH etc.) and act as a free port in the blockchain world.

The BOS network is built from the community and will continue its bleeding edge development with support from the extensive EOSIO Block Producer and developer community.

Scalability, Availability, Efficiency and Light Governance are the tenants of what BOSCore is building to.

Why are we a part of it?

EOSphere have been working with the BOSCore BP community and developers to launch this cutting edge blockchain. EOSphere participated in the BOS testnets prior to launch and still do, including nodes on the experimental last irreversible block (lib) performance network.

EOSphere have committed a large footprint of BareMetal infrastructure in our own two physically separate data centres to the BOS-Mainnet, including servers, firewall clusters, loadbalancers and high speed secure internet gateways.

We are passionate about technology and fulfilment of blockchain promises to improve real world processes. BOS is born for usability and technical innovation and we are happy to support this initiative.

MEETONE-chain

Block Producer Nameeosphere.m
Voting Tool: meetone.eosx.io/tools/vote
Network Monitormeetone.eosx.io

What is this chain about?

The MEET.ONE EOSIO Sidechain is based on the concept of “open & sharing” and has been launched with the support of well known EOSIO Block Producers and application developers. The aim of this chain is to promote the development of a trusted network and is working together with the community to empower the Internet, mainstream businesses and games with a blockchain based on EOSIO technology.

The MEET.ONE team has accumulated extensive industry and technical experience in dApp smart contract development, wallet development and Block Producer deployment. The MEET.ONE sidechain is designed to extend the EOS ecosystem, reduce EOS usage thresholds and costs, and enable sidechain dApps to access primary network resources.

Why are we a part of it?

The friendship between MEET.ONE and EOSphere goes way back to the beginning of time in February 2018. The MEET.ONE wallet application which originally drew us to the MEET.ONE team has great usability and is feature rich including EOS news and providing a gateway to numerous dApps.

We believe in the MEET.ONE vision and were already community partners with them on their program to encourage new users to the EOS ecosystem through provision of free EOS Mainnet accounts, so registering our candidacy to run for BP election on the sidechain was a natural decision.

Ultimately the MEET.ONE sidechain is focused on bringing new user adoption to blockchain and the EOSIO ecosystem rather than trying to bring existing token holders over from other chains. EOSIO community growth and platform adoption is core to our EOSphere mission and we are excited to be part of this sidechain.
