EOS Voting Portal Update 5/25

in #eos2 years ago


Thank You

One week ago today we requested donations and support to fund this project and we weren’t sure how the request would be received.

As of today, we are pleased to announce that we have reached our fundraising goal of $25,000 USD equivalent!

The team is truly touched by the support we have received, and we are working hard to ensure that the voting portal will be live by launch. The EOSPortal team would like to extend a sincere thank you to the EOS community for your support!

Allocation of Funds

The $25,000 which was raised will be used to pay developers, designers, and cover the back-end costs of EOSPortal.io for at least one year.


Labor: Using a rate of $90 USD per hour, ~25 hours per team member is $19,000
Hosting and back-end costs: $6,000 for one year

Excess Funds

Any additional funds will go toward future feature implementations.

Hi (@summerskin),

Thanks for the post, getting your EOS tokens registered so you can vote seems like a smart thing to do.
Truth is we wanted to see if you'd be interested more profit potential. TIMM is coming out soon and we're looking for creative talent. If you are not sure, give us a follow and at least get a free trial to check us out.

We've posted more information here: Introduction and here Leverage TIMM for profit.

We are also on Facebook so if you'd like to send us a private message you can here


Here's our new Discord channel invite, so you can join us there.

What a great team! Glad to see everyone rally together and provide resources to create a tool which benefits the whole community. =) Thanks for all your work!

@summerskin you are really doing a great job, not just for steemit, eos nor ONO but for blockchain as a whole....keep it up


great work and well done to all involved.

A big thank you to @summerskin for being the face of the "donation" campaign. Kudos to you!!!!

Thank you for the compliment. I’m lucky the team trusted me with this responsibility.

I'm excited already about EOS, this is going to be huge, but first of all "Fun" ;)

Well done @summerskin! Your team does great work.

Good work, very good explanation and video tutorial. Somehow I couldn't make it work though.
At some point when I'm almost ready to vote I get this:

Anyone else has this problem?
I really do have an eos acount
