EOS Asia, a technical team and seasoned blockchain DApp developer, recently announced its qualification as an official Block Producer (BP) candidate, elected to become one of 21 presidents of the EOS blockchain ecosystem. There will be only 21 Block Producers in total for this role, where EOS holders have the option to vote coming up on June 2nd, 2018.
EOS Asia qualified for the competition due to its dedication to bringing the best technical and international representation to build DApps, making EOS the blockchain infrastructure for mainstream applications.
“Our mission is to ensure EOS continues its success as a healthy, community-driven decentralized protocol,” said Dafeng Guo, co-founder of EOS Asia. “We promise to defend the ecosystem from anyone who wants to privatize it for their own benefit.”
EOS is the fifth-largest digital currency by market cap with the goal to become a decentralized operating system supporting industrial-scale applications, eliminating transaction fees and conducting millions of transactions per second — solving the scalability issues of blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum. It’s scheduled to be released as open-source software on June 1, 2018.
The EOS Asia team brings together experts from all over the world, including China, Europe, the United States, and South Korea. The BP candidate’s core technical members are backed by Silicon Valley incubator Y Combinator and highly recognized by well-known industry veterans. The EOS Asia team has more than 15 years of experience in server and cloud technology and has previously built applications and games used by tens of millions of people.
Currently, EOS Asia is working on developing DApps everyone can use. The team’s most recent projects include EOS Gems and Traffic Exchange Token (TXT). EOS Gems is an EOS-based DApp and blockchain game inspired by CryptoKitties that allows players to trade, collect, and fuse gems to create new unique shapes and effects. EOS Gems will be custom built using three.js and will be airdropped to EOS holders following the launch of EOS Mainnet.
TXT (Traffic Exchange Token) is an innovation targeting the $335 billion market of digital advertising, rewarding users for viewing and engaging with ads. EOS Asia is developing TXT to put the power of advertising back in the hands of the user, increasing profits from ad spend by removing middlemen, and eliminating fraudulent bot traffic altogether. TXT’s high transaction volume requirements can only be accomplished using EOS.
“We’re incredibly proud of our team’s technical expertise, which spans a variety of areas in EOS and blockchain development. Our core team’s credentials include an Alibaba Cloud Tech MVP award in 2017, the building and scaling of products from zero to tens of tens of millions of users, exemplary expertise in blockchain technology, and the development of infrastructure for millions of users.”
