To the courts with you: ENF vs. B1! Blue to the Core+. Pomelo farmers discover Kimberlite. Road to Mandel is fractally stronger together. Rant’n Samurai ushers in a quiet storm. Fractal forums- will that be a thing? Finney mothership detected…
Crypto Court: ENF vs.B1
The EOS mainnet continues to demonstrate a gung ho disposition in 2022. Legal drama was tackeled by Crypto Briefing (EOS Foundation Seeks $4.1B in Damages From Block.one) and CoinDesk (EOS Community Weighs Legal Action Against Block.one Seeking $4.1B), just to name two mainstream (crypto) outlets. However, the best place to start your own investigation might the ENF’s blog post ENF Instituting Formal Litigation Proceedings Against Block.one. While the EOS mainnet as a DAO cannot seek damages, the EOS Network Foundation can. The foundation already found legal counsel. Seeking $4.1 billion in damages is about holding B1 responsible. Also noteworthy is Ted Cahall joining the foundation as COO (yes, the former B1 exec). In Ted’s own words:
I joined the @EosNFoundation specifically to continue the mission of scaling out #EOSIO….#EOS can be an absolute game-changer, …
As more new projects launch on the mainnet, EOS is sure to continue to cast its wake across the crypto space.
EOS Core+ Blue Paper
Teeing off on a dead center fastball, that’s the EOS Core+ Blue Paper. The ENF described objectives as:
Developers spend a lot of time in chairs, so excuse how the foundation follows up its liftoff. Core+ is about soaring, not just the mainnet, but blockchain. It’s about soaring the way only EOSIO/Mandel can. Hence, ENF words:
… a global leader in blockchain technology…
It’s wonderful to see the “EOS mainnet” specifically included in plans from the very beginning (see clip above). Check out the NovaCrypto clips with EOS Costa Rica that credit B1 for instituting developer tutorials and how Core+ will advance education and tackle tough elements like language barriers. Find the full Core+ blue paper at the ENF blog.
Pomelo Season 2 Introduces Kimberlite
With Pomelo season 2 imminent, the team unveiled Kimberlite to compliment season 1's fruit bearing NFTs. Get some to find diamonds. A total of 5,000 will be dropped. A portion of those will go to badge holders of both golden and regular pomelos. The rest will be available on the market/drop. The snapshot for the badge drop is Monday the 14th, Valentine’s Day. Primary sales will help fund the season 2 matching pool.
Mandel Consensus and Dan on DAOs and Fractally
The road to Mandel (EOSIO 3.0) is about true mainnet sovereignty. As the ENF put it following the consensus kickoff meeting:
…#EOS is taking its codebase into its own hands and away from @B1. #RoadToMandel
Dan broke down Mandel’s “nature” within a fractal democracy in a NovaCrypto interview (above). By the way, a recent Dan tweet inspired my earlier comment in the Crypto Court section about “DAOs cannot seek legal damages”. Along this logic consider Dan’s treasury comment:
…A #DAO cannot have a treasury other than its own token. End of Story.
If you’ve followed Dan closely in recent months then you know he’s got plans for ‘old’ tech like Bitshares and Steemit (Hive). Val is a UI developer from those days and has joined Fractally. Also worth mentioning is an Eden Capital tweet about reviving resources:
…A large number of EOS ecosystem resources that disappeared in 2019, could be restarted in 2022! https://freedomproxy.org
Rant’n EOS: Big Beard Samurai Heats Up
They're few who can keep up with Yves La Rose when it comes to dishing out a feel for the current temperature around the mainnet. If something moves him, it's worth taking notice. This week he touched upon a few topics including:
Pragmatic approaches to exchanges and their potential positive influence
Funding and ecosystem development using the tools blockchain has to offer
The needed mind shift to realize EOS' potential
EOS rants add value to the community's perception and understanding of the issues surrounding the mainnet and its direction. It's only been a couple of weeks and we've only seen rants from a few members. Hopefully more key figures will contribute.
Around the EdenOS Genesis Community on EOS
If you’ve enjoyed some of the recent rants by community leaders, then check out Eden Clips. EdenOnEOS introduced them on YT this past week. There’s some core informative stuff like EOSIO name change, exchange BP voting, and Eden next steps (above). Brandon Lovejoy responded to DogmanLabs' polling idea of what someone else characterized as “fractal forums”. He pretty much supports the idea. Brandon pointed out that many contributors have other things going on in EOS. Overriding the innovative forums idea is improving mainnet organization and an efficient reward/acknowledgement mechanism. As per weekly schedule, there’s Chief Delegate meeting #17, a Fireside Chat and EOS Community Gaming.
Cryptowriter (Finney) Report
This week saw Volume 1 burning go live as well as the combined discord of Finney, UNDRGRND, Crunks and Mongs. The multichain community comes together under the Meta Collect brand. As one might expect, a COLLECT token is in the works. Well worth the wait through an otherwise somber few weeks. A lot of action this week, particularly out of the UNDRGRND both on twitter and discord. This includes a Valentine’s Day drop and new twitter spaces:
