EOSweekly: API+ Paper, Fractally, Pomelo Season 2, ENF
API+ Blue Paper
The API+ Blue Paper (available for download on the ENF blog) is integral to solving persistent mainnet problems. One of the need areas that B1 never got around to is that of an API that can scale to meet transaction volume. Teams that develop specialized API infrastructure have relied upon Block Producer Rewards. The inherent variability of this funding stream isn’t conducive for a stable development environment. With new funding from the ENF and other sources (e.g. Pomelo), API issues can be reasonably addressed, such as:
Support Existing Operations
Those directly affected by improved mainnet APIs include developers of apps, smart contracts, protocols, and tools, as well as data analysts, exchanges, and administrators. Proposed salaries and team assignments are listed on page 21.
ENF vs. B1 Legal Drama and Weekly Rants
This time it was HackerNoon picking on the legal drama festering since B1 shifted its focus to Bullish and Voice. Yves is quoted as:
“We have been disappointed with Block.one’s reaction to our attempts to negotiate a solution following its failure to fulfill its commitments…”
In a blog post entitled B1 Litigation Update, the ENF announced a call to action:
EOS Network Foundation is requesting more information from the EOS community related to your personal or business experiences with Block.One, EOS or EOS VC.
Also out of the ENF camp this week was:
Pomelo Season 2 Date Set
Official dates have been announced for Pomelo Season 2. Grant applications are open from March 2 through April 11. Donations begin being accepted on March 30 and end on April 23. Remember, applications must demonstrate a public good. As for season 2 NFTs, detailed information can be found at EOS Nation. Blending starts Tuesday. The ultimate goal is to blend a “stunningly clear Diamond Pomelo”. All primary sales go to the matching fund pool. This week also saw the release of EOS Nation’s February 2022 WAX Report.
Fractally Gains Momentum
Introduced on February 22, fractally has already completed two tests. The framework for next generation DAOs has various applications. Excitement continues to grow around fractally’s potential for Eden elections. As an NFT standard, James Mart illustrated how:
…Fractally is not in competition with AtomicAssets. Rather, it allows other NFT standards to opt into a common base infra, making them cheaper & more interoperable. It's more of a standard for NFT standards.
Dan Larimer invited anyone interested in helping:
bring fractal governance to the world
to register for this week’s meeting. More than 50 participants found fractally to be more enjoyable (and quicker) than what has been expected of Eden elections. Fractally meetings are scheduled for Saturdays. You’re encouraged to attend.
EOS Finds the Spotlight Again
EOS found itself in the spotlight again on the second to last day in February. If you recall, just a couple of weeks prior, Brock Pierce discussed EOS on FOX Business. This time it was Market Wire News praising EOS. More people are finding that cryptocurrency transactions need not be costly. Tabbed as a “smart contracts platform” token by Market Wire News, EOS was among five others considered the best in class purchasable for under $10. EOS once held a top four position by market cap. With the ENF’s successful takeover of duties from B1, it appears that the EOS mainnet is regaining respect. Market Wire News is a resource for traditional stock investors. This illustrates the growing acceptance of cryptocurrencies, a reality that will need low cost, fast transactions like EOS.
Around the EdenOS Genesis Community on the EOS Mainnet
Helios seems to be making good on its promise to support EOSIO. This week’s Top 5 EOSIO Moments of the Week (hosted by Chris Barnes) is a good example. More EOSIO details are presented by Chris in a recent Helios Spotlight. For an overview of weekly events specific to Eden and the mainnet, check out the members’ Recaps Channel. With the second Eden election quickly approaching, Chief Delegate meeting #20 opened with refining the voting process, and of course, the implementation of fractally. Among this week’s Eden Clips were:

Remember that there’s also weekly Fireside Chats and game nights.
Meta Finney Report
Last week’s apartment purchase rings louder with Worldwide Webb announcing new features specific to NFT displays and pets. A total of 10 integrations were scheduled for this past week. Mongs have already visited OG’s Pawn Shop. Finney continues to find new crypto friends since coming to Earth. The most recent is as famous as any in Bored Apes Yacht Club #8855. Check ‘em out in the official Meta Collection. Finney also started developing its Sandbox estate and a physical NFT gallery. As always, there’s giveaways and weekly engagement rewards for community members who inspire through their feedback (e.g. articles and videos on YT and Twitch).
