An Introduction to EOS.CYBEX
Hi, fellow EOSers! EOS.CYBEX is an experienced team dedicated to EOS project incubation and community development. After careful consideration and thorough plan-making, we are now well-positioned to run for one of the EOS supernodes. EOS.CYBEX aims at providing a myriad of one-stop services for all DAPP developers based on the EOS platform, including testchains readily accessible to developers, and sophisticated test tools and services. In addition, we boast various blockchain project incubators set, and already operating, in Shanghai, Tokyo, Singapore, Dubai and Hong Kong, covering a larger area than all our competitors, not to mention more incubators to be set in London, New York, Switzerland and Silicon Valley according to projections for this year. Cybex, a decentralized crypto-asset exchange based on Graphene technology, guarantees sufficient liquidity for the crypto-assets of EOS developers. Below, we will detail our mission, team, roadmap and our capabilities to nurture the EOS community.
EOS.CYBEX is a community specially built for EOS, its fountainhead Cybex, basing China, a decentralized exchange adopting Graphene technology. The latter was launched on 26th.Feb.2018 and has already had considerable influence in the Graphene circle. It is said in the white paper of Cybex that Cybex Exchange will also transfer onto the fundamental chain after it is put into use. As a Graphene technology practitioner, we are experienced in tackling all sorts of problems one may encounter during the development of Graphene-based products. As an Exchange operator, we master almost every essentials and obstacles in the life cycle of a blockchain project. As a keen observer in the blockchain industry, we are fully aware what a dynamic DAPP ecosystem means to the bottom public chain.
From the technology aspect, we will run a complete test chain, provide a sophisticated testing environment, digestible developing tutorials, and other technical supports, to facilitate the development of outstanding DAPPs on the EOS platform. From the operation side, we have already established blockchain project incubators worldwide, providing developers in with access to free office environments, communication platforms, technical guidance and full financial support from our established of foundation. As a result, their focus will be on the development and landing of projects. From the liquidity aspect, Cybex Exchange can push forward token listing and circulation for those excellent EOS projects. We expect that, from the aforesaid three aspects, EOS.CYBEX can empower EOS developers, the EOS community and EOS’s endeavor to make the world a better place.

II. Why Us
(2) Affiliated serious media coverage on blockchain industry
(3) A decentralized Exchange Cybex
(4) The world’s first cold wallet designed for EOS
Nebula Wallet is the first hardware cold wallet backing EOS, CYB and BTS simultaneously, using the same signature algorithm and JSON transaction pattern as BTS. It is compressed and encoded into a binary stream through the LEB128 compression algorithm. The Nebula hardware wallet performs ECDSA signature algorithm with secp256k1 curve on the binary stream, while analyzing key data structure (receiver, amount, commission, etc.) and displaying it on hardware screens for users to confirm. Compared with traditional software signature method, Nebula dramatically increases the security, and ensures that private keys are completely generated by True Random Number Generator of the hardware and are permanently unreadable.
Compared with other BTC/ETH hardware wallets in the market, EOS hardware wallet prevents replay attack by validating the timestamp in transaction patterns, while BTC by UTXO and ETH the nonce. Moreover, transactions happening on EOS are rather big in data volume, which will translate into a problem in embedded devices like hardware wallet, for the length of signature accounts hugely for hardware storage capacity. While Nebula Wallet, taking advantages of the feature of Hash Function, optimizes the system by separating then inserting Hashes. Whereas in the world of BTC, this method is not applicable due to ScriptSig and the situation that flexible data structure is put in the input data (instead of output data).
(5) VaaS, the First Formal Verification Platform for EOS in the World
Formal Verification, simply put, is conducting specification, development and verification by mathematical tools in accordance with one or more formal specifications of properities, using mathematical methods to prove or falsify the correctness of a system. Formal verification can facilitate understand and analyze the system in full measure, and examine as much as possible the inconsistency, ambiguity, incompleteness, etc. in it.
With a string of safety incidents erupting in DAO system, Parity Wallet, Coincheck, etc., safety issue has become a new technical difficulty in the development of blockchain platform, particularly smart contract. In order to tackle this problem, scholars and researchers at home and abroad agree that formal verification is a rather effective method to enhance the safety of blockchain ecosystem and smart contract. Therefore, a formal verification team led by Prof. Yang Xia from UESTC(University of Electronic Science and Technology), which is both shortlisted in “985 Project” and “Double First-rate universities”, has successfully developed Vaas through 2 years of assiduous research. Vaas is a highly-automated blockchain formal verification platform which can conduct formal verification to the functional correctness and safety of mainstream blockchain platform, e.g. EOS, Ethereum.
As world’s first formal verification platform backing EOS, VaaS utilizes a myriad of verifying methods, boasting several advantages like high effectiveness, high degree of automation, low artificial participation, the compatibility with fundamental high-capacity blockchain platform. Recently, VaaS’s focus has shifted to the formal verification of EOS blockchain platform. It now can provide comprehensive formal verification services, including the verification of EOS smart contract, and the formal modeling and verification of EOS sandbox and consensus mechanism.
