Code of Conduct

Along with the Mainnet Launch, we announce our code of conduct along with ownership disclosure. Despite the postponement, our stance is firm and clear.

Mission statement

EOSYS’ motto has been “We Vitalize EOS ecosystem” since we made EOSscan. Not only as a block producer, but also as an EOS evangelist, EOSYS has been dedicated to spreading the vision of EOS, especially in Korean Community. EOSYS aims to continue our effort in vitalizing the ecosystem by providing value to token holders and by implementing the duties of block producer while respecting EOS Constitution and Arbitration Orders.

Guiding Principles

  1. Sustainable freedom of a blockchain comes from censorship resistance and scalability. EOSYS believes in the spirit of EOS and will maintain this belief.
  2. EOSYS profoundly agrees with the vision of EOS that holds life, liberty, and property.
  3. We value sincerity and transparency, promising to never engage in any form of vote-buying.

Transparency, Honesty, and Integrity

Chain Partners have never conducted or invested on any ICO in pursuit of health and sustainability of blockchain ecosystem where doing imprudent ICOs has been a fad. This integrity and sound belief has inspired many intellectuals in blockchain industry, gathering 90 competent personnel just in 10 months.

Transparency and soundness are pillars of Chain Partners which leads to the spirit of EOSYS. Trading the pillars for a short-term profit will never hold the team together, resulting in the resignation of talented personnel. Thus, transparency is our philosophy. If we make any mistake (for being a newbie), then we will apologize and come up with solutions. However, we never abandon honesty to cover up mistakes. To us, the reputation that comes from integrity is more important than a short-term profit.

Commitment to Token-holders

We acknowledge the sense of community is what holds EOS together. Thereby we respect token holders and continue conversations to form a reasonable consensus. This effort leads to the education of essential concepts such as blockchain and governance to newcomers. A simple step begins with decreasing the language barrier between different cultures.

Excellent Performance

As a block producer, we promise to maintain network infrastructure high level. Also, we will provide security through a solid partnership with industry experts (currently Penta Security). We will always be ready to conduct system upgrades and emergency actions that are agreed by BP community and needed to the chain.

Cooperation with the community

We welcome cooperation with other BPs/SBPs regardless of their geographic location and also with community members to produce value, come up with solutions and protect the value of EOS. We will continue our effort in spurring cooperation in various activities.

We Value EOS.IO Constitution and Abide By Arbitration Orders

Building sustainable governance throughout blockchain is not an easy achievement. EOSYS obeys and upholds the Constitution which is democratically agreed upon by the community. Moreover, we pledge to abide by arbitration orders that are enacted without hesitation.

Lastly, we continue, Vitalizing EOS Ecosystem!
