EOS21 is an open-sourced project and the community is encouraged to customize, fork, and use the code.

EOS in the East
Education and training comes to Japan
JEDA and EOSLaomao are cooperating with another Japanese blockchain community to launch an EOS popularization initiative and developer training activities for the Japanese community. Since EOS has not passed its application to the Japan Financial Services Agency, Japanese investors and developers are quite limited in their scope of EOS knowledge. The Japanese market remains underdeveloped and full of expansion opportunities for the EOS chain. JEDA and EOSLaomao will run meetups with investors and developers alike, raising awareness and building partnerships between these communities. The goal is to popularize EOS knowledge, promote the EOS ecosystem, and help more Japanese investors understand EOS participate in its growth.
JEDA alerted the Japanese community to the account ‘gm3dcnqgenes’ theft incident and prompted the Japanese community to pay attention to private key safety. We worked closely with the ECAF to add the relevant account to the blacklist and minimize the victim’s assets loss.
