EOS Arabia is a community and a block producer candidate that aims to serve the Middle East region. The group was founded in March 2018 and has since grown to 6 members. The team plans to support and be part of the global launch of EOS software that will take place in June 2018. As the only candidate in the region currently, we plan to promote EOS in the Arab countries through dedicated Arabic content that covers how-to tutorials on EOS usage, dApps coverage, governance, community proposals, hackathons and any future ideas that will enrich the content in the community. Our goal is to contribute to the overall success of the EOS.IO decentralized ecosystem from this area of the world.

Hardware standard: 10 Cores; 50G RAM; 1.2T SSD Hard Drive.
We are a self funded team and will be able to cover the initial costs required in this phase.

We plan to scale -as demands grows- using a mixture of cloud and physical servers in the region. The plan is to have more bandwidth, RAM, and backup nodes.
5- Community benefit project outline, only for projects expected to be public by June 3, 2018
Serving the community is one of the core values that our team holds. We plan to raise awareness and support the EOS project throughout the community in the middle east region. Our goal is to grab the initial interest of the community by publishing Arabic content about EOS such as tutorials, knowledge articles, dApps reviews, and run and manage arabic forums. As the ecosystem matures and more developer tools are available, we will hold frequent developer meetups and hackathons. We also plan to Allocate a percentage of our profit to support developers that are building dApps and tools for the ecosystem.
