1st Letter to the EOS Community from EOSYS (the First EOS Block Producer Candidate from Korea)
Dear all members of the EOS Community,
We are EOSYS, the First EOS.io Block Producer Candidate from Korea. It is with delight and honor to officially welcome all members of the EOS community on our journey to support the successful launch of EOS.io, vitalizing the EOS ecosystem and beyond — as a reliable Block Producer here in Korea.
1) Why EOSYS?
Today, 34% of EOS transaction happens in Korea. Investing in cryptocurrencies with high potentiality is surely one of the biggest interests of the public in Korea and we all know Korean investors drove the surge of Ethereum price by their significant willingness to invest last year. However, that is not where we should land, where we are heading towards. We’ve always felt the need for wide-spreading EOS and the value EOS sprouted from: securing life, liberty, property and justice. In long term, we want EOS’s value to be prevalent, and we dream of people using products/services built on top of such value. We are confident that the value of the EOS network, then will be tremendous and astounding than any other in the world.
EOSscan.io was the beginning…
That’s why we built EOSscan.io last June (2017), before the EOS ICO even began. We wanted investors to be discrete in their token purchase, educated in EOS and its value. Ever since it’s launch, EOSscan,io has become the favorite website for EOS token holders following the official EOS website.
Building EOSscan.io was just the beginning of our effort. Before the launch of EOS mainnet, we prepared ourselves with the mission to not only build products but to raise awareness of the public, empower blockchain as a technology, and rapidly accelerate the buildout and adoption of the decentralized economy.
Our CEO Charles Pyo has been a great advocate/evangelist of blockchain and a firm believer of EOS in the Korean community. He’s an esteemed serial entrepreneur in Korea who started his first company at the age of 15, and has been committed to serving as a bridge between EOS community and Korea’s large investor base. And with such mission, he has been leading team EOSYS to run a crypto media in collaboration with the oldest economy journal in Korea, crypto PG with 300+ affiliates in Korea, and one of the biggest crypto communities in Korea. This proves team EOSYS’s efforts to be best prepared to support high-speed, low-latency network and capability to stably produce blocks as the mainnet launches. All our past and ongoing activities will be weaved together in a direction to support ourselves as a notable and reliable block producer.
…We are ready for the next
We have a number of product initiatives underway expecting the EOS mainnet launch as below.
1. EOSscan.io: We will convert EOSscan.io into a block explorer for EOS.
2. EOSwallet: We will launch EOSWallet to support chrome extension and iOS/Andriod.
3. More to come.
We proudly announce our candidacy to the EOS community that we are best prepared to help thrive EOS, as we are leading and forming the blockchain technology and community in Korea. There was a relay of unequivocal support already from the large base of our supporters in Korea who share and empathize with our mission and vision and we will scale this by giving trust and proving hard by words and actions. Come join us together.
2) Who is EOSYS?

4) Our Thoughts on Voter rewards
We support the effort to NOT reward voters directly as we run our candidacy before the mainnet launch. We WON’T directly reward voters, but will use block rewards to vitalize the ecosystem; educating people, incubating and funding dApps. This is for the good of ALL — EOS Community. It is not the time to earn support and fame through monetarily allure investors, but time to invest in the development of our technology and people in long-term. When block rewards are used to build better infrastructure for EOS ecosystem, the gain of investors will scale. We will prove this by flourishing the Korean investor’s EOS community as a first step. We ask for other BPs to join this movement to commit to resist paid-for voting.
5) And our journey begins with ALL of you
EOSYS will strive to empower the community, by investing in essential apps that EOS needs, helping build and support new dApps, and providing education to a wider audience on the benefits of EOS and decentralization. We will be open and transparent in how are funds and rewards used and actively voice our stance on upgrades, dispute resolution, and hardforks.
At least in Korea, this is what we’ve been doing all the time, and now it’s for us to ask for your help — all members of EOS community around the globe — to be with us.
We cannot do this alone. We don’t want to do this alone. We don’t have to do this alone. Please contact us whenever, wherever you’d like to collaborate. This is not limited to other prominent BP candidates, but communities, corporates, developers and so on.
It is not a single individual/ organization/ community that builds EOS, but us All. We believe that’s where true ideology and value of EOS lies on.
Hope to continue the conversation we start today with all of you and welcome your questions, suggestions, criticisms or support in anyway along the way.
