EOSweekly: Dan's Whitepaper Circulating, Yves' WG+, Year in Review, Community Togetherness, Bullish, Chintai
Dan is closer to deploying the ‘killer’ crypto app. Yves’ WG+ strengthen the mainnet’s core. An annual review, fireside chat, and New Year’s hangout help the community take in the blessings of 2021. Chintai and Bullish rumblings felt.
Bytemaster7’s EOS Whitepaper
Dan Larimer is a visionary. None would argue that. He’s also attuned to echoes of days past. Dan demonstrated such attention to detail in a New Year’s tweet thanking all who contributed to BitShares, Steem, Hive, and of course, EOS. In this same tweet he introduced future plans outlined in a paper and roadmap. A white paper and new branding are due out soon. Dan described what’s coming this way:
…deploy *the* killer application that will make #EOS the platform for viral community #DAO creation, growth, and engagement.
Careful planning remains the order of the day. Dan presented the paper for “peer review” and added that he:
...made a major breakthrough…
EOS: A Year in Review by Alfredo de Candia
With 2021 coming to an end, you may want a recap of key EOS mainnet milestones. Alfredo de Candia is Author of Mastering EOS and Mastering DeFi. He’s an Android developer with a specialty in blockchain. Alfredo published 2021 - One Year in EOS in Hackernoon. The article is a month by month playback of the events that transpired on the mainnet. Alfredo begins the year with Bullish and ends with ZEOS. There’s all sorts of goodies in there like Yves’ path to (greater) stardom and Dan’s “DAO of DAOs”. Alfredo ends the article by drawing attention on what’s to come like EOS 3.0 and more from Pomelo quadratic funding.
EOS Support’s List of EOS-based Applications
A nice compliment to an EOY recap comes in the form of a comprehensive list of respected EOS applications. The list is provided by EOS Support writers. Not only does the community have a one stop location to check trusted dapps, but a concise summary accompanies each. Contributing writers include Dario Cesaro, sy.jeong, and Peter Valenčič. From staples like Newdex and EosNameService to new comers like ZEOS and Violet Gardern, EOS Support maintains a current list of respected projects. The team invited all EOS-based apps to Contact@eossupport.io for a listing.
CORE+ Working Group
What is the Core+ Working Group? According to the latest ENF post it’s about :
Better tooling, documentation, SDKs, and libraries for simplifying and improving the developer experience on EOSIO.
The ENF sponsored groups will provide the EOS mainnet with what it lacks. Core+ is considered an integral part of the roadmap moving forward. Other WG+ include:
Remember that all recognition grants have been distributed. ENF will continue to fund new and existing projects. The most recent funding action took the form of a stewardship in transferring 6.5m EOS to eosio.grants.
On the Horizon for Bullish
Bullish touts itself to be unlike most crypto exchanges. A quick quick word on where Bullish is now was provided by Anthony Smith, Bullish’s Head of Risk and Compliance. Bullish was planned to be:
...regulated from the word ‘go’.
For Bullish to achieve its objectives, licenses need to be acquired for each jurisdiction in which it operates. Bullish expects to help propel EOS into the spotlight. Good spirits are growing around the exchange. EOS Foundation (daily news) tweeted:
Nice that the mainnet and B1 continue to work for the overall good of EOS. More good news came in response to winners of the pilot program who couldn’t claim their prizes because of jurisdiction rules. Save the Children became the overwhelming donation of choice.
Chintai Making Waves
Chintai resides among the most respected teams within the EOS ecosystem. It often shares headlines with B1. After all, B1 is among its partners. Chintai’s CHEX token responded positively to the team’s recent activity. We will need to wait and see how Bullish, Chintai and Newdex coexist in the same ecosystem. A bright future appears on first glance. Bullish is of course a centralized exchange. Both Chintai and Newdex expect to remain decentralized. An example of Chintai’s potential can be found in powering the JustCarbon marketplace. Chintai is also involved in broad crypto applications, tokenized real estate among them.
Around the EdenOS Genesis Community on EOS
To kick off the year on the right foot, check out Eden Members Recap channel. Here’s highlights of things not covered within this newsletter:
new Eden NFTs to show appreciation for participating in elections
EOS support reports on a new scam
Already discussed and present within the final recap of the year was Dan (whitepaper/roadmap) and Yves (WG+) discussing the future of the mainnet. Also, EOS Support maintains a list of active project teams. Alfredo’s year in review was not on the Eden recap but worth a glance. EOS Nation held its own fireside chat and look back on the year. The community spent the New Year together. It’s worth mentioning that Helios BP votes now more closely align with the community.
Cryptowriter (Finney) Report
Finney, UNDRGRND and Cryptowriter maintain a full-court press as we await the release of the new Finney Comics, Finney Builder, and much more. Kicking off the new year was the announcement of the Ethereum roadmap. Two things that stand out are the price drop in ETH Finneys and the new comic style. Supply for the ETH comic will be substantially more limited than on WAX. Round 25 Cryptowriter NFT Engagement Winners have been posted. As always, EOS/Finney relevant Cryptowriter articles for this week include:
