Recently the EOSIO Resource Exchange (REX) that allocates resources (CPU/NET) to users became unusable on the EOS Public Blockchain after spikes in demand for processing power and bandwidth drained the system of liquidity. During the outage, borrowers who attempted to get access to these resources were denied service.

Resource supply for the EOS Public Blockchain on REX highlights a general issue with the resource allocation model; despite a large demand, most of the network’s resources are going unused. REX was managing around 30% of the network’s total CPU/NET and ran out of resources to allocate to new borrowers. …

At, we believe that collaboration fuels impact, and we continue to look for new ways to fund early stage collaboration efforts. We continue to be inspired by the passion we see from the blockchain related companies that highlight and leverage the new possibilities of EOSIO software. There are a lot more ideas and innovations out there, and we want to make sure that there is every opportunity to identify and support deserving entrepreneurs.

Today, we are proud to announce our Grants Program, which will be a new avenue to fund active EOSIO community members as well as those nurturing…

We spoke with Domenic Thomas, CEO of WORBLI, a blockchain network and financial services platform built on EOSIO.

Could you introduce your blockchain network for us?

WORBLI is a financial services oriented blockchain network. We are built entirely for decentralized finance (DeFi) with an embedded compliance layer offering, that offers additions like know-your-customer (KYC), and anti-money laundering (AML) services. Most financial applications globally require these to meet compliance standards.

To most, Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and cryptocurrencies are exciting but bewildering. Our desire is to take away that bewilderment and help people discover how they can use DLT daily, both professionally and personally.

WORBLI’s infrastructure was built using…

It’s been just over a year since the EOS Global Hackathon series concluded, so we’re taking a moment to recap what went down, but to also look forward. We’re checking in with some of the past winners and competitors on how their projects #BuiltOnEOSIO are progressing, where they’re at, and what they’re doing next.

The Recap

For those of you new to the EOSIO ecosystem, in 2018 hosted the EOS Global Hackathon series, an event that brought people together from all over the world — 1,724 to be exact. …

We spoke to Douglas Horn, the architect and whitepaper author of the Telos blockchain network, which is built using EOSIO technology.

Could you introduce your blockchain network for us?

Telos is a public blockchain focused on empowering mass adoption. Our pillars for this makes it easy to join and use Telos, provide powerful tools for app builders to ease their development cycles, and lead the world in functional blockchain governance.

We see a world where people are eager for the new field-leveling opportunities that blockchain can bring to individuals and groups-allowing them to better compete with the entrenched powerful elite. …

Getting started with a new technology always poses challenges. There are often new languages, development patterns to learn, and hardware prerequisites to meet for setting up a development environment. Blockchain development in particular has certain resource requirements that must be met to run a full node, replay a chain, or test smart contracts. These issues present obstacles for new developers who are interested in exploring blockchain technology. As EOSIO grows, we are working to create new tools and libraries that make EOSIO development faster, easier, and more accessible to developers around the world.

To that end, a significant goal of…

EOSIO 2 was built with developers in mind. Our focus: make it faster, simpler, and more secure to build on EOSIO.

We believe the single biggest bottleneck for blockchain development is the speed in which they can execute smart contracts.

EOSIO was the first blockchain software to use a WebAssembly (WASM) engine to improve performance, but in time, we outgrew existing general purpose WASM engines and knew we could do more.

Our solution: build our own, designed from the ground up with blockchain in mind. …

EOSIO provides a wide range of options for allocating the available CPU and network bandwidth among token holders. The underlying principle of EOSIO is that if you own 1% of the tokens you may utilize 1% of the available bandwidth. Following this principle we created the resource exchange contract, known as REX, which allows token owners to rent their bandwidth to others at a market rate.

With the advent of EOSIO 1.8, it is now possible for a contract owner to pay for the CPU and network bandwidth of their users by co-signing the transaction. Applications are now able to…

Kevin Brown, the founder of Coinage, tells us about his work on the Lamington project and how this tool is designed to help compile, deploy and test EOSIO smart contracts.

How does Lamington aid in smart contract development?

Lamington is an easier way to compile, test, deploy, and call actions on your EOSIO smart contracts from Javascript and Typescript. It generates full Typescript types from your ABIs (giving you autocomplete in VSCode even if you don’t use Typescript) and creates contract objects so you can simply write await contract.action(parameter1, parameter2) instead of having to dive down to the EOSIO level on every call. …

Upland Co-Founder Idan Zuckerman explains how Upland, a blockchain collectible game, allows players to truly own virtual objects that are linked to the real world, and how this could disrupt the casual gaming industry.

Can you introduce Upland for us?

Upland is a fun, blockchain-powered, property collectibles game that blurs the boundaries between the real and virtual world. We believe Upland has the ability to spearhead a new type of movement; we call it the Ownership Revolution. People who play Upland can experience true ownership of the digital assets they collect in the game, with provable scarcity and ownership supported by blockchain technology.
