Introducing MyEOSKit Part 1: Easy, Secure, Fast and Beautiful Method to Vote on the EOS Blockchain


EOSASIA111111.png

The Mainnet is now live and we've finally arrived at Phase #3:
Enable: Release joint statement from Block Producer community that it is safe to import private keys and vote. Voting beings.

But only with your help we can reach Phase #4:
Declare the EOS Mainnet active.
(All stages here)

The problem now is, how do we vote?

That's the most frequently asked question by EOS holders these days, and the purpose of this post is to show you the most secure and easiest way to vote (we've researched them all!).

Only with your help can we make EOS the premier example for all Blockchain projects around the world! Vote to activate the chain, vote for a chain that's maintained by the best BPs in the world, and vote to be part of a history that you create.

DISCLAIMER:
MyEOSKit uses Scatter. Scatter is a way to sign EOS transactions and provide private data without exposing keys and unnecessary information while interacting with web applications.

Scatter is one of the most secure and easiest-to-use wallets in the EOS ecosystem.
EOS Asia's voting tool will never ask for private keys. If you encounter a fake portal, please report it to us.

Summary:

  1. Download and set up Scatter
  2. Go to MyEOSKit (We've built the simplest interface possible)
  3. Vote!

Details with our Step by Step Guide:

Step 1: Download Scatter

Visit get-scatter.com or scatter-eos.com and download the Scatter plugin for Chrome:

Step 2: Verify Scatter

Verify Scatter using the developer options of Chrome. (Make sure you have the official version of Scatter before using it)

  • Go to chrome://extensions/
  • Turn on Dev mode on the top right of the page
  • Verify that the ID of Scatter is the same as the one below:

Step 3: Create a Scatter Account

Click on the Scatter icon in the plugins section of Chrome. Insert a password that’s going to be used to access your account and select “Create New Scatter”.

Immediately after this step, write down the mnemonic phrases and store them in a safe place. You will need these to retrieve your account in case it gets lost or stolen.

Step 4: Enter your EOS Keys

In the menu “Key Pairs”, enter your EOS Private and Public Keys. Give your keys a name so you’ll know which one it is.

(Remember, if you do not feel comfortable to use Scatter you don’t need to vote with this way. Scatter is currently one of the tools we suggest, since we've verified it and since we know the founder.)

Step 5: Attach Identity to EOS Asia Voting Portal

This step is going to import the Mainnet network to your Scatter and attach your Identity to the Voting Portal.

  • Go to MyEOSKit and select “Attach Identity”

Step 6: Link your Wallet to your Scatter Identity

  • Open Scatter and click on the Identity Menu
  • Edit the Identity that Scatter created for you, or create a New Identity
  • In the Account section select the EOS Mainnet chain which should be:
    eos:chain:aca376f206b8fc25a6ed44dbdc66547c36c6c33e3a119ffbeaef943642f0e906
    -In the same section, select your wallet and click “Import” to let Scatter search for accounts
  • When the account is found it will let you select permissions. We suggest to select the Active EOS permissions
  • Once you’re done remember to Save in the top right of the Scatter Menu

Step 7: Vote

Now we’re finally at the most exciting part, voting!

  • Open EOS Asia voting portal: MyEOSKit
  • Enter your account name. This should be a string of characters such as "hezdszjogegc"
  • Select up to 30 BPs using the checkboxes.
  • Once you've finished selecting, click on the “Vote” button and you’re done!

Thank you~we are here because of you and we're so much happy to be your choice.

Hey guys, the biggest concern by the community is they feel entering their private keys into third party software to vote is too risky.

If @dan could endorse some of the most popular tools that would really help speed up the voting for sure.

Scatter is safe to use, it's open source and you can find their code on Github. In my opinion it's just safe as steemconnect

Agreed, I personally used scatter and then played with the greymass app which is great.

My statement was for the wider EOS community who are not technical enough to valid the code themselves.

True, it's still easy to get frauded...

We absolutely agree on this, that's why we will never ask private keys! Beware of any portal that asks for private keys and inform us. Our telegram group is: t.me/EOSAsia

Keep going guys!

Thanks ;)
