Community Benefit Project Outline Expected to be Public by June 3, 2018
We have two main strategies for the development of EOS community projects:
1. Create the first social network based on EOS, a free and decentralized DApp named ONO
We will develop the EOS platform’s first social network DApp, ONO, based on the EOS chain. ONO is a free and democratic social network. Vastly different from other block producer candidates, ONO will bring massive data demand to EOS through its social design which will result in an organic social ecosystem feedback loop plus technological developments of EOS.
The ONO DApp will be released on Android and iOS on April 15th, 2018. The initial product will be set up for registration, and users will be invited to build keynotes on the platform. At present, we have received tens of thousands of users' keynote partner applications for selection. Afterwards, we will release the keynote to the opening of the product as scheduled.
Before June 3, ONO will basically complete the construction of keynotes and conduct data migration at the earliest time when the EOS public blockchain is open. By then, ONO will conservatively estimate that the number of users will exceed 150,000, (upwards to 300,000 users), and the amount of content data output per day will be huge, which will bring a lot of block demand to EOS.
2. Promote the prosperity of the EOS community and expand the scale of the community.
ONO will provide a social communication platform for EOS nodes, holders, users and potential users so that everyone can publish content on ONO and create their own attention value system.
Based on the characteristics of the underlying technology of the blockchain, the open content on the ONO platform will have irrevocable features. The related block producer candidate’s work progress, milestone events, etc. of EOS can be directly published on ONO, and a large number of users will be able to learn more about EOS through ONO and all EOS nodes.
Currently, each participating node establishes a user community in a dispersed manner, resulting in asymmetric information among users. There is a large individual bias in the understanding of a large number of users on EOS. ONO is a social DApp that integrates rich functionalities such as Instant Messaging and content distribution. ONO will become a highly efficient communication platform, breaking through the information barrier, making EOS-related information more efficient, more accurate, more intuitive to EOS current users and potential users.
With the completion of the ONO keynote building, we will conduct community outreach operations to DApps and open up open registrations to attract a massive amount of users to join ONO. With the increase in the number of users, we will also encourage users to join EOS community development projects. This will motivate users to become long-term holders of EOS, as well as contributing to the long-term development of EOS.
Because the development of ONO and the development of EOS have a synergistic relationship, the quality and efficiency of EOS will affect the product experience of ONO, so ONO will encourage users to hold after the EOS public chain is open. This will result in EOS Networks to bring more efficient, high-quality services to people. At the same time, ONO's product experience will also be optimized, allowing us to rapidly expand our user base.
