EOSweekly: Boid, TrustEVM, Consensus 2022, Yves Interview, Defi, ENF
Deemed the biggest festival in crypto, Consensus 2022 is open to mainstream companies like American Express. The premier card company added its first crypto-linked product. The event certainly had its moments. To say the CBDC topic was a heated one would be an understatement. Coindesk covered the controversy:
You know it’s going to be a fiery conversation when one of the panelists says “F**k the Fed” in his opening statement.
Maybe the topic is a bit dicey for the credit card companies. That didn’t stop financial innovator Circle from voicing its thoughts:
Dante Disparte, head of policy for stablecoin issuer Circle Internet Financial, called central bank digital currencies (CBDC) a “preposterous idea.”
Brandon Lovejoy is the ENF’s Communications Manager. He represented EOS at Consensus 2022 and recently published a continuation of the discussion Why Block One leaving EOS was the best thing for EOSIO. Who do you think would better help further mainnet development in representing EOS at Consensus 2022, B1 or the ENF?
Pomelo Update: The Good, the Bad, and the Opportunities
Team Pomelo is among the most analytical projects on the EOS mainnet. Expect anything less coming out of EOS Nation? Veteran community members know of the team’s relentlessness. On that note, here’s this week’s Pomelo update, a look into the positives and negatives of Season 2. Aspects hoping to find more profound growth during Season 3:
Things that need refinement:
Trust bonus (particularly adoption)
Here are a couple of highlights from the Pomelo Medium post:
Grant owners needed opportunities to gain more exposure and promote their grants, especially those who didn’t already have established communities.
Grant donors told us they would like more visibility into a grant’s progress on commitments from the previous season, along with a way to validate the updates are accurate.
Yves La Rose: Executive Director/Founder of the ENF and Blockchain All Star
While Brandon is at the festival in Texas, Yves spreads the word via Blockchain-based Service Network (BSN) Eventbright. This will be the 11th interview of a Blockchain All Star. Learn more about Yves and how his passion for blockchain grew over the years. Be sure to join the event on June 14th at 9pm CST. Registration is free.
EOS and the Future of Defi with Blockchain Zack
Brandon and Yves are not the only ones to watch out for this week. Zack discussed how:
…synergy between Yield+ and Recover+ will drive #TVL on $EOS …
Yield+ will reward defi applications that meet specific requirements. It may very well change the status quo of how EOS defi applications develop. Recover+ brings an added level of assurance, especially for those new to blockchain who may lose access to their assets. Zack believes that the new paradigm may:
…inspire everyone in #DeFi…
Boid Charity Auction Supports Ukraine Effort
About a day ago, it was made public that the Ukraine military is running out of ammunition. External funding could help solve this problem. Ukraine continues to put up a good fight against a once perceived superior, even insurmountable, invader. It’d be a shame for Ukraine to lose its homeland to empty barrels. Food is also an issue. Enter team Boid. This week saw the Ukraine Boid Avatar Charity Auction. Avatars will be limited to 10. One will be auction per day and:
…All funds raised go to Ukraine support…
If history is any indication, when a blockchain connects to Ethereum, there’s a run on price and assets like NFTs and defi. EOS EVM, dubbed the Trust Network, has already begun testing. The development and support team are actively raising awareness. A Medium post and a part of this week’s Fireside Chat offer basic information and deeper insight.
What good would be connecting to a new blockchain without advancing the EOS mainnet? Couldn’t such a lack of planned innovation ultimately extract value from both chains? The ENF’s leadership as the developer of core mainnet technology didn’t start with an EVM. Rather, the foundation introduced it following the formation of key working groups and blue papers. On that note, the ENF continues to maintain an open process:
CD Meetings Back on Schedule
If you read last week’s EOSweekly, then you’re aware that the weekly Chief Delegate meeting was absent. Eden community is back to normal this week with two new publications on Odysee (CD meeting #9 and #8). The CDs also published the Eden Peace Treaty on Odysee.
The EOS public mainnet expects to one day be primarily governed by Eden. With Eden on EOS elections occurring every few months, the community needs a more rapid consensus mechanism. Enter team Fractally. This is the team that gave us Eden and of its same name, fractally consensus meetings. Nice to see a second fractally meeting specific for Eden take place this week. It serves to bring the ecosystem a bit closer together. Following up his star-like into last week, Nathan James asked the community:
Hey #blockchain #developers, what are your favorite tools for development?
As far as regular info mediums, the CD meetings (mentioned above) are back on track, Mandel meeting #18, Fireside Chat, Helios’ Top 5 #EOSIO Moments Of The Week, and for EOS daily news, check out EOS Vision.
Another Saturday fractally meeting in the books. Seems like the community is finding its groove. Want proof? Check out this weeks addons (thanks to bytemaster7):
test of first interim council
fractally logo for community use
The fractally team seeks to protect development and copyrights while facilitating an open community. Fractally code has been committed for open-source. Until then, the community needs things like an interim process for the governing council. Find out more by joining the whitepaper discussion.
EOSweekly is a roundup of recent news within the ecosystem. Unique needs and services continue to emerge as the advantages of blockchain technology are realized. Easy access to information becomes increasingly important for these expansive networks.
