EOSweekly: VOTE, ENF Grants, American CryptoFed, EOS Costa Rica, Chintai, Violet.Garden
VOTE!! ON OCTOBER 9TH! 6 deserving projects receive ENF grants as the Foundation further inspires the community. EOSIO-built American CryptoFed Dao is legalized. Chintai and EOS Costa Rica expand their influence. Is EOS chatting finally here in Violet.Garden? Finney sports his Rarity tool.
First Wave of Recognition Grants Distributed
Through thick and thin, a few teams remained true to their promise to develop on the EOS mainnet. In recognition of their faith and service, the EOS Foundation is distributing recognition grants. In total, 34 projects were selected. The first six were announced this week:
Even occasional EOS user are sure to recognize some of the names on this list, including our own Finney team.
Chintai Gains Momentum
EOSIO blog spotlighted Chintai this week. The post is an on-topic overview of issues concerning crypto regulation within the proposed US Infrastructure bill. Chintai hit the ground running as a blockchain for pressing, real-world solutions. Like it's co-founder Philip Hamnett, Chintai creates the playing field, never seeming reactionary. It's about solving existing problems such as scalability, resource allocation, and compliance. CHEX token is being built around an exchange that will easy the burden of compliance for financial services overall. Companies can look forward to a full audit trail without the need for expensive manual checks.
EOS Costa Rica in Education
EOS Costa Rica is among the most active developers within EOS. You can explore it's many projects here. One in particular, EOS Rate continues to open eyes of late.
EOS Rate gathers ratings to help capture a global collective opinion, or "wisdom of the crowd", and measure if voting patterns truly reflect voter sentiment.
The attention crypto has been getting from the US government will draw even further attention to the above statement (from eosrate.io). Stirring things up this week was a certificate presented by the Technical University of Costa Rica. It was a show of appreciation for contributing to a student workshop on blockchain and EOSIO.
American CryptoFed DAO
EOS Eden presented the community with a few quotes from American CryptoFed's SEC filing. Among the advantages cited were scalability and energy consumption. The first is one of the most pressing concerns for blockchain developers, especially those pushing for mainstream adoption of Bitcoin and Ethereum. The latter, almost has characterized blockchain as eco-UNfriendly. Of course this is obviously NOT the case once one considers the total input and output of financial systems. Nevertheless, we are at a crucial point where emotional issues can have dire consequences for a technology set to transform the world. Visit American CryptoFed Dao for more. US first legally recognized DAO goes legal route to release utility tokens is the latest link on it’s news feed.
Test Driving Violet.Garden
EOS needs its own chat. Social media and messaging platforms are simply too powerful to leave in the hands of traditional server-based systems. Voice was supposed to solve this for the community. Luckily, Violet.garden made its way to a handful of people this week, I among them. Still in early stage, Violet was able to pull up my profile picture, login, comment, and claim tokens with ease. Though I initially failed at swapping EOS for Violet tokens, it's a built-in feature right from the start. This is something that Voice promised and has yet to deliver even on its new, dedicated NFT platform. You're encouraged to test drive Violet for yourself and join in the process of moving conversations on-chain. You may also wish to join the team's telegram channel.
EOS Network Foundation (ENF) Inspires the Community
Unsubstantiated hype, the EOS Foundation is not. Starting an entry into EOSweekly with hype-quotes illustrates how much of a relief and breath of fresh air the Foundation’s funds, commitment, development, and leadership means to a community battle weary from years riddled with disappointment:
For a deeper look into what recent events mean for the community, read Has the EOS Foundation Finally Propelled EOS to the Big Time? by ByWire News. Of course there’s some tangible news (even beyond distribution of Recognition Grants)- there’s always something coming out of the Yves camp. This week, Yves La Rose took time to congratulate the recipients, touch on the EdenOnEOS election, discuss Pomelo going live “at some point” soon, scaling ENF, and presenting a roadmap in his latest post The Current State of EOS and Where We Go Next.
Around EdenOnEOS: Prepping for the Inaugural Election on October 9th
Why so quiet? If your head spun a bit rather than a giggle in the heart, then you need a stern reminder of the inaugural election on October 9th. No doubt development ongoes in the shadow of the election. There's currently 100+ confirmed participants out of over 250 members. While the significance number emphasize early on by Dan Larimer will likely be available for the first time at the inaugural election, 50% attendance is not something to brag about. For an insightful look into our community, watch EdenOS Roadmap & Progress Report with Brandon Fancher. Also note that Dan held an AMA this week.
