Why EOSphere – Q2 2019

  • News

EOSphere is an Australian based and registered PTY LTD business headquartered in Perth, Western Australia. Committed to EOSIO technology we aim to serve the entire EOSphere enabling community growth and EOSIO platform adoption through provision of foundational block producer services and initiatives.

Our primary function is to effectively provide the block producer services required to support thousands of commercial scale DApps which requires not only an agile and secure enterprise scale infrastructure solution, but also a mature operational structure to govern, monitor, maintain and manage an EOSIO blockchain.

Our current team of 9 is made up of career professionals; datacentre, networking and security experts and community members. You can read about our latest additions here and here.

Our Data Centre Deployments have been run in AWS in the past however have now successfully been migrated to BareMetal across two geographically separate locations. High speed CPU cores, a large RAM footprint, 10GB Networking, Load balancing, DDoS mitigation, Segmented HA security and Internet feeds.. and our personal favourite NVMe disk arrays to handle the high amount of IOPS necessary to run EOSIO software. You can read about our upgrade project here.

Professional integrity, transparency, commitment, cooperation and independence are all characteristics that the EOSIO community have come to expect from EOSphere since the start of our company launch in January 2018 (Candidacy Announcement). We believe in the concept of a positive feedback loop where block rewards are reinvested back into the EOSIO Ecosystem to grow the community and platform adoption.

Since our business creation we have been completely self-funded and will never accept any external investment or influence from other parties to ensure we are true to our values which further emphasises our independence. Over the last 17 months we have strived to fulfill our commitment to the EOSIO community and have managed to achieve a multitude of initiatives within our funding means:

Since EOS-Mainnet launch we have had numerous requests from Businesses and dApp developers for assistance on their EOSIO projects and initiatives.  It is therefore a natural evolution that EOSphere responds to the ecosystems request for support. We want to leverage our community standing and expertise to provide exactly this for really great EOSIO projects and so we have launched a Professional Services arm of EOSphere called EOSphere {/dev}.

EOSphere {/dev} aims to assist with EOSIO platform adoption by real world businesses after all it is all about the dApps and if EOSIO is to be successful the dApp ecosystem needs to grow and be utilised by the mainstream. We want to encourage successful services and dApps to be deployed on EOSIO,  if you are an established business or you have a great idea, we would love to hear your blockchain story. Complete this form for a free 30min consult with the EOSphere {/dev} team.

EOSphere {/dev} has been busy over the last few months with numerous consulting engagements and discussions with new builders and businesses in the EOSIO space. However the project highlights have been building the vision of Ashe Ore and Zane Whitener and bringing it to life in their TokenYield platform, as well as building the front-end to the Telos Arbitration system.

Recently we have also partnered with StrongBlock to provide development, project management and block producers services.

Ultimately EOSphere can be considered as Good Actors and Excellent Custodians of the EOS-Mainnet and other sister/sidechains existing and soon to be launched. We have the required technical expertise, professionalism and infrastructure; we sponsor and support the best initiatives; we are upstanding members of the global community, highly visible and easily contactable; and we aim to make EOSIO the business friendly platform is was built to be.

A vote for EOSphere is a vote for a positive inclusive future on EOS-Mainnet and the entire EOSIO ecosystem.
