June EOS Chain Launch
On the 1 st June 2018, eosDAC ERC20 Ethereum-based tokens will be frozen. Over the days that follow, eosDAC will launch as a Decentralised Autonomous Community on the EOS blockchain and all token holders will then be able to take control of their eosDAC tokens and begin to utilise them on the new EOS-based chain.
In June, the eosDAC constitution will be released and the code will be deployed to allow 12 custodians to be voted in by the eosDAC token holders. These custodians will then be able to work together to run eosDAC’s operations, including employment of all key team members. The current Launch Team members will carry on with their activities until the custodians either re-deploy them or replace them.

This contract can be renegotiated or terminated at anytime in the future by eosDAC, should its custodians vote to do so.

eosDAC Ltd has contracted to host its own servers in M24seven’s privately owned data centres in Manchester and Bucharest. M24seven’s state-of-the-art Tier 3 facilities provide comprehensive security, resilience and bandwidth capacity and are ranked Europe’s greenest for electricity consumption.
There will initially be 2 nodes in each location with 256GB RAM ( Rapid scaling to 2TB is supported) and over 5 TB of usable SSD space. Hardware based firewalls and DDOS prevention will be in place. The specifications will be reviewed on a regular basis and upgrades implemented as required.
Justin Keery, Technical Director of M24seven, said: "We are excited to be supporting eosDAC at the launch of a revolutionary new infrastructure for decentralized applications and support eosDAC's decentralized model for block production."
In fact Justin is so enthusiastic about eosDAC that we are delighted to announce that he has now joined eosDAC as a team member, enabling him to personally provide the highest level of technical planning and oversight to the ever-growing eosDAC network infrastructure.
Further servers are being deployed in Gibraltar where eosDAC is also exploring the unique licensing potential available to ‘Distributed Ledger Technology’ operators in that jurisdiction. In South Korea, eosDAC is working on a 'bare metal through cloud solution' within an IBM data center.
It is the vision of eosDAC that EOS.IO block production should be open for everyone to contribute and benefit. To realise this vision, eosDAC is an evolving Decentralised Autonomous Community (DAC) focused on EOS.IO Block Production serving the EOS communities worldwide. In doing this, eosDAC is also creating the tools and smart contracts it needs to function. It will share these with the EOS communities to help other DACs thrive on the EOS.IO blockchains.
