As members of EOS Emerge we are honored to be part of this revolutionary project and to have the opportunity to present ourselves to the EOS community as a founding block producer candidate in the launch of an EOS.io based blockchain.
Official block producer candidate name:
EOS Emerge Poland(legal entity)
Location of company headquarters:
We are a group of strong IT and blockchain enthusiasts from Poland with background and IT experience in private companies (precious metals - idfmetale.pl, mutual funds, insurance), with a 14-yr history in the financial market and extensive knowledge about most of the financial instruments that appeared in the last decade, indicating our ability to adapt to the changing environments of business.
As such, we are extremely excited and ready to use our financial background, IT knowledge, and innovation skills to serve the EOS project.
In addition to our financial experience, we are highly involved and invested in blockchain technology as we:
- are current investors in EOS tokens
- have built our own expanded mining facilities for bitcoin using wind power plants
- sell mining equipment in order to support the growth of blockchain technology in Poland
- educate people about the technology through trainings, lectures and conferences
- have experience in developing software and IT solutions that are compliant with financial market regulations
- are a proud member of Eos Testnet Block Producers
- we are the only official distributor of Ledger Nano S in Poland, listed on Ledger website as our second domain (bitmining.pl)
We are big enthusiasts of the EOS ecosystem and we believe in its core foundations, which makes us want to be active participants in its early adoption phase.
Using our previous experience in IT and finance, we are eager to join your community to contribute in building dApps for EOS, which in our opinion could be a real breakthrough!
In order to achieve the best decentralisation we will not use Google or Amazon infrastructure. By cooperating with one of the biggest Polish Data Center operator: 3S (publicly traded company) we can achieve better scalability and control of our job. We will use our own dedicated servers.
Expected location of servers:
- Very low latency Tier 3 Data Center in Katowice, Poland
Backup in other cities
About Data Center:
- 3S Group with its seat in Katowice has been present in the telecommunication sector since the year 2002.
- 3S has its own fiber-optic network with a length of nearly 3500 km and the Data Center Cluster.
- 3S was a technological partner of one of the most popular competition of e-sports in the world - Katowice Intel Extreme Masters, which brings over 100,000 spectators to the event center in just 2 days, not mentioning the other millions e-sports fans following the competition online.

Tech Plans and Scaling:
We have been thoroughly evaluating the hardware specs to be needed for our Block Producing infrastructure at launch time of the project. While this is not final and might be subject to change within the following weeks, we plan initially to have:
INTEL XEON E5-2640 V4 10C/20T2.4G Hz 25MB
64 GB RAM
512 GB SSD
Initially we plan to have a Block Producer (BP) and a full node machine, each with a failover server.
As the project will grow, we will be considering INTEL PHI line up of processors as it can offer in our opinion the best performance for the task it will be facing with its 64 core. As for the storage, it will be scaled up as will be necessary with the growth of the EOS project.
We are planning to have multiple location with failover facilities across Poland and Eastern Europe. We are planning to allocate most of the reward toward scaling of our operation until achieving the best performance of our BP.
We are strong believers in the Eos project. Given that at the beginning the most important task will be to smoothly and responsibly run BP node, our beginning efforts and investments will go 100 % to scale up hardware to facilitate a big number of transactions. It would be amazing to see 50k, 100k and more tx running on EOS smoothly and reliably, showing to the world the power of blockchain.
Once we will be able to provide EOS with the best service as a Block Producer, we will concentrate on giving back to the EOS comunity. Amongst our efforts will be to bring awareness into the EOS project to companies.
We will be organizing conferences, online courses, and other trainings to the potential to build apps on a decentralized network. As a future Block Producer, we want to be a link between the EOS blockchain facilities and entities that will be ready to use its potential to create applications. Given the very dynamic developing polish community of interest in blockchain, we are sure that Poland will be the place for many fascinating projects and applications.
From the rewards received we will finance not only the infrastructure but also bounty programs to help us get even better in our job.
Our presence in EOS Community:
We are a member of @cryptolions EOS Jungle Testnet (racoon) ans eosio.sg testnet. We are currently awaiting to proceed to the next testnests, one of which is the Community Testnet and Scholar.
Thanks to our participation in the testnet, we have the ability to monitor the situation on an ongoing basis and adapt to changing conditions and emerging problems.
We are also happy that thanks to the developed community on Telegram groups dedicated to EOS, we have the opportunity to constantly exchange opinions and ideas regarding the future operation of block production procedures.
