EOSweekly: Eden Election, Fractalegally, Mandel, Token 2049
Eden Election Scheduling Issue
The third Eden on EOS election is scheduled for July 9th. Note that you may need to re-register. There was a slight issue with the contract. It’s believed to have been resolved. However, review and testing will precede MSIG approval. It’s not clear when sign ups will be official. Edencommunity.org expects not to update the new election date until the contract is finalized. CDs maintain that the election will occur as regularly scheduled later this week.
Pomelo Season 3
Each Pomelo season promises to outdo the one prior. Like Pomelo NFTs, new funding rounds expect to bring new features. The team works diligently to provide the community with a robust experience and analytical tools. If the past two seasons are any indication, season 3 stats will inspire discussions extending throughout the greater ecosystem. Here’s the season schedule taken directly from the Pomelo Medium announcement:
July 19–August 8: Create your grants for public goods. As grants are created, the Pomelo team approves the ones that qualify.
July 27–August 17: Donate EOS to your favourite grants and influence the distribution of the matching pool.
After August 17: The Pomelo team analyzes results and distributes the matching pool to qualified grants that pass KYC.
Dan on Fractally and Legal DAOs
Fractally’s release date has yet to be set. The technology is still in development. Rumors are that a final product is in sight. The focus seems to be on delivering the best possible long term solution. Dan Larmier has been active in presenting issues that impact both fractally and blockchain as a whole. In fact, the subject matters that Dan writes about have far reaching implications for human life as a whole. Last week he dug into the need for fractal democracy. The previous week previewed the fractally database. Persistent discussions in the crypto space often relate to regulation. This week Dan expanded on some ideas he touches upon in weekly fractally meetings, that of the legal stand of a DAO. Fractally is unique in the crypto space. It’s being developed with both the latest technical ideas and regulatory concerns in mind.
Mandel to Fix Lost Transactions
Cryptocurrencies can be intimidating for new users. Non-technical individuals often wonder about lost keys and transactions. Traditional banking relies strongly on relationships to resolve matters. Blockchain is supposed to be better than these types of guesses. The new EOSIO (Mandel 3.1) tackles lost transactions and account recovery. Most blockchains avoid such topics until a rollback becomes the only viable option. Mandel will bring “powerful new tools” for optimizing the user experience, as well as solve issues related to subjective billing and lost transactions. Account recovery was touched upon from time to time earlier this year. Essentially, users may soon have the ability to authorize family and friends (or a combination of protocols) to reinstate their account. The only option currently available is to submit a request at the BP level, a rather daunting, if not futile, endeavor.
Token 2049 Approaches with the Spotlight on TrustEVM
Mandel isn’t just the third generation of the EOS mainnet. It’s the first time the community has had true input into development. For years the mainnet community voiced, even demanded, greater development. Oftentimes these cries went unheard. Not so ever since Mandel arrived. Development on EOS proceeds beyond most wildest dreams. All the effort and energy comes to an apex this December as Mandel sets to go live. Token 2049 happens the same month. A mostly covert dev team leaks tidbits of their event agenda from time to time. Not surprising that TrustEVM (as well as Recover+) are already fueling September rumors.
The week prior to an Eden on EOS election has typically been quiet. Given the issue with the election smart contract, preparations for the third election feels more like the first one. And then there’s the recently declared independence and request for the blockchain keys. Keep a mindful ear, especially if you’re planning on participating. Regularly scheduled weekly news and events include:
12th, and (fingers crossed) final, meeting of the second term CDs
Fireside Chat Q&A
Mandel meeting #21
Coalition+ working group progress update

EOS Support news and trivia giveaway
Fractally differs from EdenOS in its design for faster consensus via small groups. This week saw a test version of the new UI. As promised, the in-development video technology is a decentralized solution. A few advantages were touched upon, like remaining an independent participant even if one’s connection goes down. The new UI wasn’t used during this Saturday’s meeting. Instead a clip of a breakout group showed how much easier and faster consensus meetings can be. Saturday’s meeting had several breakout rooms. Hope you join the discussion of an amazing new way to network.
