Thank you to the community members who helped review and contribute feedback to this document.

On-Chain Proposal

The final version of the EUA can be found here.

Foreword

The word “constitution” can be perceived differently across cultures and languages, so we have shifted the title of this document to the EOS User Agreement.

The EOS User Agreement is an open-source template and EOS New York has not directly submitted it for a referendum. You should feel empowered to take this document and change it, amend it, propose it, or otherwise mold it to fit what you believe is best.

The design principles for this document:

  • Items are enforceable.
  • Establishes a framework of “governing documents” so that amendment of the EOS governance can be agile.
  • Defines roles and responsibilities of various user types.

Definitions

  • EOS User Agreement: This document (EUA)
  • Chain ID: chain_id - aca376f206b8fc25a6ed44dbdc66547c36c6c33e3a119ffbeaef943642f0e906
  • User: Any person or organization of persons who maintain(s) direct or indirect ownership of an EOS account, or EOS-based property connected to an EOS account.
  • Ownership: Direct or indirect access to an EOS account through one or more valid permissions checks. Ownership may be partially shared between Users through the use of multi-signature permissions.
  • Block Producer: Users who have called regproducer and receive rewards from eosio.vpay.
  • eosio.prods: An EOS account with a dynamic permissions structure that can assume the privileges of the eosio account when 15/21 Block Producers agree to do so.
  • Network Funds: Tokens contained within the following accounts: eosio.names, eosio.ramfee, eosio.saving.
  • Governing Documents: regproducer is considered a governing document.
  • On-Chain: Any transaction, smart contract, or Ricardian contract which is located within a block that is irreversible and appended to the EOS blockchain chain_id.
  • EOS-based Property: Anything that requires a valid permission in order to directly manipulate, alter, transfer, influence, or otherwise effect on the EOS Blockchain
  • Call: To submit an action to the EOS Blockchain chain_id.
  • Authorizations & Permissions: Permissions are arbitrary names used to define the requirements for a transaction sent on behalf of that permission. Permissions can be assigned for authority over specific contract actions.
  • Ricardian Contract: A contract that places the defining elements of a legal agreement in a format that can be expressed and executed in software.

Regproducer Agreement

The intent of the regproducer action is to register an account as a BP candidate.

I, producer, agree that I may be removed by 15/21 Block Producers for any reason deemed appropriate at any time.

I, producer, acknowledge and agree that my producer account is exempt from Article X of the EUA and submit that 15/21 Block Producers may effect my account if deemed necessary.
