Welcome to the sixth edition of the GoodGuys Digest. We are EOSphere, a standby Block Producer (BP) for the EOS blockchain network. We also manage a proxy voting account, named goodguys4eos, which is used to assign votes to outstanding BPs under 1% of votes. With this digest we bring you good news from these Block Producers. We switched it up a bit this time round. We decided that the featured block producers can speak for themselves! Hope you enjoy :)

Aloha EOS is a highly technical block producer team headquartered in the United States. Our producing node is in Hawaii, which offers a unique geographic location that helps diversify the EOS network and bridge the East and West.

Our team consists of technical experts in blockchain, security, performance, scalability, and web/dapp development. We have been actively involved in EOS since early 2018 and helped launch the mainnet.

We have built many free tools for the EOS community, such as our Proxy Research Portal for researching proxy candidates, and our Block Producer Benchmarks for helping block producers improve their performance.
We also support and participate in both Jungle and CryptoKylin testnets, offering our infrastructure and guidance to dApp developers.

We hope that through the combination of our early and ongoing efforts with our community involvement, guides, tool contributions, and testnets, you will strongly consider us for your BP vote!

• In an effort to continue improving our infrastructure and meet the demands of the network, Aloha EOS has recently purchased new servers and equipment to enhance our operations in the Honolulu location. We expect to have these online by the end of February.
• Aloha EOS joined the privEOS project and launched a privEOS testnet node on 1/8/2019.
• We are working on some exciting new updates to our BP Research Portal that should be live within the next month.
• We have updated our BP Benchmarks to show outlier samples.

Over the Xmas holidays we have released our first quarter of charitable donations valued at 817.348 EOS. We will also be sponsoring EOS meet ups and lines of code or useful articles that are run by the EOS communities in the near future.
