EOS Detroit: An Update, Our Position on Dividends, and Our Roadmap

in eos •  8 months ago


Greetings! We are excited to be nearing launch, and our whole team is together in Detroit preparing to make history in collaboration with the entire global EOS community.

In the last few days before launch we are putting the finishing touches on a whole variety of new content to share which will serve to further clarify and strengthen our position as a BP candidate, and introduce us to the world, so please stay tuned!

Position on Dividends

In our EOS Detroit Membership Guidelines we lay out our position on dividends and more:

5.  To maintain independence, EOS Detroit and its members will not hold a vested interest in any other block producer candidates. This includes DAC block producers. EOS Detroit will only run one Block Producer node per network.

6.  EOS Detroit and its members will never pay for approval votes, collude with other Block Producers, or be corruptible by outside interests.

So to reiterate, EOS Detroit believes that giving dividends to voters is harmful to the EOS network and we will never give dividends to voters or attempt to "buy votes" in any manner.

We thank you for your support!
