Meet the Block Producer -- EOS 42
As a worldwide community, we think BPCs who makes contribution to EOS ecology should be well known by EOS token holders, so we create a catalog to introduce foreign BP candidates on the homepage of our main blog and also open this topic on among most famous Chinese blockchain medias.
We have already introduced more than 20 overseas BPCs to Chinese community. These articles will aslo be presented on steemit.

@EOS Cannon:Who are you & When was your BP candidacy announced?
@EOS 42:我們都是在電報群上面認識的，David和Charles住在倫敦，Sean在首爾， Liam在多倫多。很快我們意識到我們每個人的價值觀都挺相似，所以我們一起在一月份的時候組建了EOS42。
We basically met each other on Telegram, David and Charles are located in London, Sean’s in Seoul and Liam’s in Toronto. We soon realized that we all share a similar values set, and EOS42 was formed in January 2018.
@EOSWhy do you want to become a BP？
EOS42 aim to be the guardians who protect the EOS network. This will be through high performance, reliable network support, investing to enable it to scale, protecting EOS token value and empowering the community to create a healthy and sustainable ecosystem.
@EOS Cannon：团队成员有哪些？ A brief introduction of your team core members？
• David Packham是EOS42的戰略與社區主管，他是EOS42區塊生產戰略策劃與開發的領導人，他管理的包括：由社區主導的擴張需求、資本投資、金融與法律相關的業務。David之前一直在幫助組織倫敦EOS社區的meetup，並之後和Charles 共同創立了EOS42。他在倫敦有過在一些涉及到金融科技（FinTech），商業戰略和計劃管理等領域的一系列的全球性機構中擔任管理諮詢家以及資產管理員的職業生涯。David學習過經濟學以及商業系統分析與設計，還有的是他是一名頑固的分散主義狂熱者，他對區塊鏈有著強烈的信念並相信區塊鏈擁有著通過增強個人自由以及減緩社會不平等之改變世界的潛力。
• Charles Holtzkampf是我們技術與基礎設施的主管，他是EOS42技術工作和支撐EOS.IO經濟體之設施的設計和領導人。在過去的20年裡，他一直致力於磨練他有關IT方面的技能，從設計高性能VDI集群，到維護一個第屬於一領先商業提供商並擁有著4000個節點的網絡集群。他曾擔任過安全滲透測試員並且也涉足過Python開發。在他一生裡，他曾開創了一個叫做BOMelakiesie的海星式組織（無等級制度的分散式組織。源於當你把海星切開一半時，一個會變成兩個，也指此組織沒有固定領袖），並曾一度託管過一個叫做Burning Man Afrika’s的網站。他在有關編程、性能監控與改良Web服務效率方面有著豐富的經驗。他參與了EOS Dawn 3.0社區測試網的登陸，並覺得很高興可以見識到我們的世界正在變得更美好。
• Sean Kang是我們韓國社區的負責人，Sean在銀行、金融與城市工程領域擁有著超過10年的經驗。 他的職業生涯開始在加拿大最大的銀行，他在那裡擔任過客戶經理並在韓國與加拿大經營過各種業務。 Sean在攻讀他的博士學位（專注於智慧城市的城市規劃科）時加入了EOS社區。 他認為將區塊鏈技術應用到智能城市將會以實現安全可靠交易之方式來改變我們的日常生活習慣。他相信EOS是足以勝任高擴展性的 “終極平台” 。 作為一個擁有著多元文化背景的城市規劃師（曾經居住於美國、加拿大、目前住在韓國），Sean在EOS中的扮演的角色將會與城市規劃人員所擁有的宗旨一樣： 傾聽，理解並執行社區需要的事務。 Sean認為他獨特性格將會使他能夠自在地溝通和理解EOS社區的所需，並相應地實施解決方案。
• Liam Wu主要負責EOS42在中文與西班牙文社區的建設事務以及相關文稿的翻譯。 在過去的20年裡，他曾居住於3個不同的大洲 （中國，委內瑞拉，現居加拿大）。他掌握的語言包括：英文，西班牙文和中文（普通話和白話）。他的技能包括社區建設與溝通，白皮書翻譯/編輯和演講。 他現在正在多倫多完成關於化學工程科技的學業。他的一些興趣包括有：區塊鏈哲學，人類文明，化學，量子力學，博弈論以及人類交際學。 在充滿混淆和懷疑下，他於2017年12月加入了區塊鏈和加密貨幣領域，從那時起，他一直被這個新的科技運動所迷惑著，以及它將如何改變我們的世界的可能性。 作為一個擁有工程學背景的千禧一代，他在課餘時間時喜歡與同齡人談論以及鼓勵他們加入到這個數碼革命的前沿。 而且他也是一位自豪的“EOS Hodler”。
David is our head of strategy and community, he leads the strategic planning and development for EOS42 block production, including operations relating to community-led expansion requirements, capital investments, finance and legal. David co-founded EOS42 after helping build the EOS community in London and organising the recent meetups. His career in management consultancy and asset management in London was for a range of global institutions in areas covering FinTech, business strategy and programme management. David studied economics and business systems analysis and design, and is a decentralist with a passionate belief in the potential of blockchain to change the world by increasing personal freedoms and reducing inequality.
Charles is our head of Technology/Infrastructure, he leads the technology efforts at EOS42 and is designing our infrastructure that will support the EOS.IO economy. He has spent the past 20 years honing his skills in all matters of IT, from designing high performance VDI clusters to maintaining a 4000 node networking cluster for a leading business centre provider. He has spend time working as a security penetration tester and dabbles in Python development. In his lifetime he started a starfish type organisation called BOMelakiesie and for a time hosted the Burning man Afrika's website. He has extensive experience with programming, performance monitoring, increasing efficiency and web services. He participated in the launch of the EOS Dawn 3.0 community test net and is excited to see the world change for the better.
Sean is our head of Korea, Sean has more than 10 years of experiences in banking, finance, and urban engineering. He began his career as an account manager with the largest bank in Canada and operated various businesses both in Korea and Canada. Sean got into EOS while pursuing his Ph.D. degree in urban planning focusing on smart city. He believes implementing blockchain technology into smart cities will change our daily lives with its secure and trustless transactions and he also believes EOS is “The Platform” scalable enough to excel. As an urban planner with multi-cultural backgrounds (lived in U.S., Canada, currently based in Korea), Sean’s role in EOS would be just same as what an urban planners do. - Listen, Understand, and Implement what community wants. Sean thinks his uniqueness will enable him to communicate and understand what EOS community needs as a whole and to implement plans accordingly.
Liam is our head of operations for China and South America, he has lived in 3 different continents in the past 20 years and he speaks fluent English, Spanish and Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese). His skills include Community engagement and communication, whitepaper translation/editing and public speaking. And some of his interests are: the philosophy of blockchain, human civilization, chemistry, quantum mechanics, game theory and the science of human interactions. Carrying full of confusion and skepticism, he joined the blockchain and cryptocurrencies sphere in December 2017, and since then he had been mind-blown away by this new technological movement and how it could change our world for the better. Being a millennial with STEM background, he wants to inspire more of his peers to get involved in this frontier of digital revolution in his time away from school. And also, he is a proud EOS hodler.
@EOS Cannon: 节点的特点是什么，希望大家了解的独特之处在哪里？What is unique about your candidacy, what do you want people to remember you for？
@EOS 42: EOS42的獨特之處在於我們是一個采用Chama結構的組織。這也就是指我們團隊裏各個隊員都對各自瞭解，而且每個核心隊員都是在一個，我們各自都尊重個人價值觀以及個人責任觀，并且認爲意見衝突是一個用於繁生創新思想的最好工具。
What is unique about EOS42 is that we’re an organization that adopted the Chama structure. That means, all of our team members know each other, and every core member collaborates in an environment that every member can share their own personal opinion. This allow us to tackle future challenges from many angles. And we thrive to respect each other’s individual values and responsibilities. We believe collision of ideas is the best instrument to create innovative thoughts.
@EOS Cannon: EOS 42预计主要为EOS生态在哪些方面作出贡献？设想过哪些方法可以让EOS TOKEN增值？Which areas you will contribute to the global EOS ecosystem and how do you propose to further increase the value of EOS token?
@EOS 42: 簡單來説，我們現在最注重的方面就是盡力的多舉辦有教育性的MeetUp，參與開發一些對整個社區都有益的dApp（比如Chintai），向測試網貢獻，以及宣傳我們認爲對EOS生態系統有益的價值觀吧，還有我們也在計劃在多倫多，倫敦，首爾建立 [EOS42孵化器] 以幫助商業把實體經濟連接到EOS上面來。如果未來中國政府對電子貨幣的政策有所改變，我們也將會在中國建立類似的商業孵化器。
Generally speaking, at the moment we’re focusing on hosting meetups that have educational purposes, participate in the development of dApp (for example: Chintai), contribute to the testnet, and propagate values what we believe are good for the EOS ecosystem. Additionally, we’re planning to establish EOS42 Incubators in London, Toronto, and Seoul to help businesses to adopt EOSIO technology. Looking into the future, if the Chinese government change their cryptocurrency policy, we will also be creating an incubator in China mainland.
@EOS Cannon: BP的竞选纲领是什么？What is your BP election plan?
@EOS 42: 我們覺得刻意地去拉票是沒有意義的。在主網上綫之前，我們覺得最有意義的事情就是舉辦綫下聚會吧（有教育性的聚會，純拉票的聚會也是沒意義的）。我們并沒有一個制定的纲领。我們覺得靈活性在區塊鏈領域是很重要的，這個領域特別是EOS還是很年輕，如何能夠靈活地伸展拳脚是一個非常重要的技能。
We believe that candidacy selling is useless. Before mainnet launch, we believe that one of the most meaningful things to do is to host meetups with educational purpose. (and not meetups that sell our candidacy, or irrational EOS “shilling”). We don’t have a firm plan. We believe that being spontaneous is very important in the blockchain space, in this space, especially EOSIO it’s still very young, how can we agilely manage the rapid changes is a very important skill to have.
@EOS Cannon: 通过哪些渠道中国用户可以关注到你们的竞选动态？是否想入驻币乎或其他中文平台，有没有来中国路演或meetup的打算？
@EOS 42: Where can Chinese community members get updates on your BP election progress? Do you have a plan to publish on some Chinese sites (Bihu.com or other sites), Do you have a road trip/meet up plan to China?
Our main social network account for the Chinese community is Weibo, because we’re outside of China mainland, we can’t create WeChat public account nor BiHu account. Also, IMEOS is covering some of the movements from the English community, but we’re aware that they’re an independent EOS news portal, and we respect their neutrality.
About road trip plan to China, we’re planning to sort it out after mainnet’s launch. There’s a great deal of token holders in China, so this will be one of our priorities once we’re elected.
@EOS Cannon: 目前中国涌现出来大量的BP候选人，你们对此怎么看？What is your view on ~30% of Chinese BP candidates recently?
@EOS 42: 因爲中國人口多，也是一個區塊鏈與電子貨幣科技的大國 (雖然近期政策有所更改)，高參與率是必然的。我們EOS42也並沒有在中國做過綫下聚會，所以我們覺得我們是沒有足夠的信息來對這個情況作詳細評論的。高參與率並不完全代表著高得選率，我們EOS42還是相信通過投票程序，社區將會抉擇這個問題。我們相信EOS社區將會建立一個分散並為全球人類服務的區塊鏈。
Because of the high population of China, the high participation rate is a very obvious occurrence, and China is also one of the leading nation in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. (despite all the crackdowns) We EOS42 have never done meetup in China, so we believe that we don’t have enough information to judge the details of this situation either. High participation rate doesn’t necessary mean high elected rate, we believe in the voting mechanism, and that the community will decide on this matter. We believe that the EOS community will create and build a decentralised network that will serve the humanity.
@EOS Cannon: 在你们看来，什么样的BP会赢得你们社区的支持？From your perspective, What kind of BP will win support from your community?
@EOS 42: EOS42 對為全球社區服務的BP都很敬佩，以下是一些我們比較看重的能力：
EOS42 admire all BPs that are working hard on contributing to the worldwide EOS community, below are some of the capabilities we value the most:
- Able to manage the collusion between BP independence and collaborating partners agilely and with confidence.
- Able to stay integral and stay in touch with the community.
- Able to get supports without using/advertising any pay-for-vote scheme.
- Able to secure the EOSIO network.
- Able to maintain the neutrality and educational quality of the contents delivered to the audience in meetups, and that they don’t use any unethical marketing strategy.
@EOS Cannon: 想对EOS Cannon和其他中国社区的EOS参与者说什么？What else you want to say to EOS Cannon and other Chinese EOS community members?
@EOS 42: 我們還是願望代幣持有者能夠獨立並負責任地思考與判讀各個候選人的好壞并為EOS的未來着想吧。我們的這個提議也不衹是是對中國社區説的，也是我們EOS42一直在向全球EOS社區努力宣傳的一個價值觀。
We think one of our biggest wishes is that token holder can think critically and individually, and that they can preoccupy for the future of EOSIO. We also want to address that this wish is not only dedicated to the Chinese community, but also to the broader global community.
