The Rio Updates Report is here with all you need to know about our latest developments.


Thanks for taking the time to get to know more about our work.

We are always trying to align our efforts with community needs and initiatives; your contributions are welcome and appreciated.

Here is what we have been up to lately!



Hyperion Pomelo grant for Season 03 is on!

History APIs are fundamental for blockchain usage, allowing Dapps, wallets, block explorers, and users to query historical information. Hyperion is open source, developed by EOS Rio, and run by multiple teams.

Last season’s grant helped us acquire three more indexer machines and one server for storage, deploying a new main net cluster that will be a backup and testing cluster, allowing for faster development and debugging of Hyperion.

If you believe Hyperion can help build a better future for the blockchain ecosystem, support the project by donating EOS. It’ll help us maintain and further develop new features for the Dapp.

We’re on Libre!

Recently, we joined Libre’s community as block producers for the chain. It’s a great moment to build!


The Hash Digest — Rio Blocks’ information hub

We announce our new website called The Hash Digest. With it, we plan to bridge the gap between the chains we currently operate and the Brazilian blockchain community. Furthermore, our goal is to provide the latest information for our readers, so they can stay up to date and informed.

Here’s a sneak peek of our logo!

Moreover, we’re also planning on including Gaming and Educational hubs, so users can learn more about the games they play and blockchain technology as a whole.

In hopes of being more transparent, we are starting this report that will have a new edition every fortnight. Through it, we plan on bringing a taste of what we’re working on, any company news we have to share, and some fun tidbits when we can as well.
