Why the need for a Dapp Service Provider (DPS) Portal?
The EOS Nation DSP Portal provides a user-friendly way to access to all services offered by all DPSs in a random, unbiased order. Services are listed by lists or icons depending on your preference.
What is a DSP?
Any individual or entity can become a DSP. DSPs maintain complete autonomy over all aspects of their operation. Each DSP can offer customized data packages accompanied by predefined terms determined by the DSP.
What is a Package?
A package is provided by a DSP and includes: a service, a quota, a minimum stake, a package period and an unstake period.
What is a Service?
A service is offered by DSPs to dapp developers allowing off-chain processing with on-chain integrity. Access to IPFS storage, executing cron jobs, querying an oracle and DAPP staking services are current examples of services provided by DPSs.
What are DAPP tokens?
The Dapp Network native token, known as DAPP, is a multi-purpose utility token designed to power an ecosystem of utilities, resources, and services specifically serving the needs of dapp developers building user centric dapps.
What are DAPPHDL tokens?
The Air-HODLed DAPP tokens (DAPPHDL) will be distributed on a block by block basis, matching up to a maximum of 3 million EOS per account. The tokens will be continuously vested on a block to block basis over a period of 2 years, so the complete withdrawal will only be possible at the end of this period. These 2 years began as soon as the DAPP Generation Event was launched. Any Pioneer Holder choosing to withdraw the Air-HODLed tokens before the end of those 2 years will only receive the vested portion (i.e. 50% of the distributed DAPP tokens will be vested after 1 year). The remainder of their unvested DAPP tokens will be distributed to Pioneer Holders who are still holding their Air-HODL DAPP tokens.
HODLers are allowed to stake their vested Air-HODLed tokens immediately using our new staking mechanics. Withdrawing the tokens will transfer the vested tokens to their DAPP account, forfeiting the unvested portion to be redistributed amongst remaining eligible participants.
What are vTokens?
vTokens are tokens distributed to EOS public network accounts via the DAPP Network’s vRAM offering. The vTokens tab allows you to look up the balance of those tokens, something that many EOS block explorers currently do not offer.
Select a Package
Using the same account, you:
— can select different packages from different DSPs (select 2 different oracle packages from 2 different DSPs)
— can select different packages from the same provider (select cron + oracle packages from the same DSP)
— can only select 1 package service type per DSP ( can’t select multiple oracle services from the same DSP)
Stake and Unstake DAPP or DAPPHDL
In order to use a DSP service, you must first stake the minimum amount of DAPP (or DAPPHDL) required by the DSP package. You can unstake your tokens once you no longer wish to use the DSP service.
After unstaking your tokens and waiting for the unstake period to complete, you will need to request a refund to regain access to your tokens.
Close a Package
After unstaking and refunding your tokens, closing your current package which will allow you to select a different one from any DSP of your choosing.
What does QUOTA mean?
Quota refers to the amount of transactions allowed per package period. A quota of 1 allows 10,000 actions per package period.
What does Minimum Stake mean?
This is the minimum amount of DAPP tokens that needs to be staked to the DSP in order to receive services. NOTE: staking less then the minimum required for a service is possible but would not allow you to use the services offered by the package.
The time period until your quota is refreshed.
The amount of time required when unstaking your DAPP tokens from the DSP.
Services currently being offered.
Online services you’ve already communicated with and enabled.
Packages that are no longer available as the API endpoints are set to null.
You are currently staking to this package and have access to the service.
You are currently unstaking your tokens and are waiting for the unstaked period to end.
You are under the minimum stake required and cannot access the service.
You have used up all the actions allocated in your quota and must wait for your package period to end for your quota to be refreshed.
