One of our primary responsibilities to the whole EOS community is to support new initiatives in the EOSIO space. For those that have been following our work over the past year you will see that we’ve been heavily involved in supporting local community ventures, new dApp projects and more recently new blockchains.
This article is to highlight the chains we’re currently supporting and have registered as a Block Producer on the chain’s Mainnet. Each chain has its own strengths and weaknesses and we’ll try to explain these along with why we got involved.
The young granddaddy of them all, this is what started it all off and the chain we got involved with over a year ago. It operates on the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) methodology which means the custodians of the chain — in this case the Block Producers (BP’s) — are voted in by EOS token holders and the top 21 ranked BP’s are responsible for signing blocks. BP’s are paid by 1% inflation on the network, top 21 BP’s are rewarded the most for this responsibility however there are also a number of standby BP’s that are also rewarded for their service provided they qualify for at least 100 EOS through sufficient votes. We actually created a video describing the Role of a BP. …

This continues our commitment to supporting diversity amongst the EOSIO community.
The EOSForce BP voting model is quite different than the EOSIO Mainnet for what they believe to be a fairer governance structure.
Here are the key differences as described by EOSForce:
EOSphere are happy to announce that they’ve performed external account and balance validation on the Telos Mainnet Chain
Both files that were used for validation had their token balances capped at 40,000 and the b1 account name was modified to b1b1b1b1b1b1.
The chain version is shown below and was frozen at block 2515.
We validated two different CSV files — one generated by ourselves from the original EOS mainnet launch snapshot CSV and one supplied by the Telos Foundation. …
