To celebrate this monumental milestone and help everyone learn about the most performant EVM on the market, the ENF will be hosting an EOS EVM Launch Event + AMA on Twitter Spaces on April 19 at 13:00 UTC featuring keynotes from the ENF and core EVM+ contributors.
During the EOS EVM launch event, ENF and the EVM+ working group will provide community members and developers with detailed information regarding the future development of EOS, as well as details about the EVM and its technological advantages, plans for attracting DeFi and GameFi, ecosystem development timeline, product range, network architecture, technical features, performance statistics, and much more.
Additional details about the EOS EVM testnet will also be announced as well as the incentive structure for EOS ecosystem developers. The event will also close out with an AMA that will allow the EOS and wider blockchain community to ask questions about the most performant EVM on the market and its plans for the rest of 2022 and beyond.
Join us on April 19 at 13:00 UTC for the EOS EVM Launch Event + AMA!

ƒractally on EOS Brainstorming Sessions
EOS community members are meeting every week to discuss proposals to implement ƒractally on EOS and further empower EOS with fractal governance.
The group aims to create a detailed proposal that specifies how to gradually implement ƒractally on EOS and satisfies EOS community members in all cultures. Members from the EOS Community can propose to add ideas to the ƒractally on EOS MindMap to help create a proposal for ƒractally on EOS. The EOS Bees are offering a reward of 100 EOS per week to community members who propose ideas that are voted onto the MindMap by meeting participants. You can listen to the recordings of all ƒractally on EOS Brainstorming Sessions on the NovaCrypto YouTube channel.
This week, the group discussed a detailed proposal from Jesse to fund three prime ƒractals (English, Chinese, and Korean) according to the quantity of mutual respect between each ƒractal and a proposal from Tadas to fund specific projects with ƒractals. In recent meetings, the group also discussed raising seed funding for ƒractals, applying for funding via the ENF Grant Framework, bootstrapping ƒractally with Pomelo, and creating an EOS ƒractal to foster public goods for EOS.
ƒractally Brainstorming Sessions recur every Monday on an alternating schedule to accommodate community members in all timezones and everyone is welcome to attend. The next ƒractally Brainstorming Session is scheduled for April 18th at 19:00 UTC.

Weekly Mandel Upgrade Meeting
Twelve EOS community leaders met for the ninth Mandel Upgrade Meeting to share the latest news and updates regarding the upcoming EOS Mandel Consensus Upgrade. EOS previously operated with the EOSIO software developed by Block One for the past several years, but now the EOS community is developing the Mandel core software independently.
During this short video, the participants shared updates about upgrading Jungle4 API nodes to Mandel 3.0.5-rc1, transaction lifecycle features being developed by OCI, and Mandel development plans with three senior level EOSIO engineers recently hired by the ENF.
You can read the summary notes for this meeting and find summaries & recordings for all Mandel Upgrade Meetings in the Mandel Github repository.
Greymass Progress Update
The Greymass team published a progress update summarizing the many exciting projects that they’ve been building over the past few months.
After a lengthy hiatus from their projects to work on the Blue Papers, the Greymass team is back to focusing on refining smoother experiences with Anchor, innovating account creation services & more with Unicove, expanding data centers with new hardware for public APIs, and growing the Greymass team with many talented people.
In addition to these updates, the Greymass team also published & described some analytics to provide a sense of the trajectory of their projects. The metrics for account creations, Anchor installations, and Unicove traffic are showing steady long-term growth and the team expects that the rate of growth will increase as they start releasing more updates & new features.
The Greymass team is very excited to continue building great technologies and products for the benefit of the EOSIO ecosystem.
The Next Era of Eden Begins
The second official Eden Election took place on April 9th and EOS community members expressed great enthusiasm for the next era of true democracy on EOS with the process defined in More Equal Animals.
Approximately one hundred Eden Members met on live video calls to choose leaders and allocate funding for the benefit of EOS. Participants were randomly placed into twenty-five groups of approximately five people and each group discussed for up to an hour to choose a delegate from their group. Altogether, the community selected twenty-four Eden Delegates to help lead the community and allocate funding for EOS. The Eden Delegates then repeated the same process to select five Chief Delegates who will receive a greater amount of funding and help lead the community on weekly Chief Delegate Meetings.
The five newly elected Chief Delegates are Brock Pierce, Chuck MacDonald, Edgar Fernandez, Gracie Lau, and Michael O’Sullivan. Edgar Fernandez was selected as the Head Chief via sortition and is scheduled to receive the highest amount of funding, though the amount of funding could change in the future if the new Chief Delegates ratify the bylaw changes proposed by the previous administration. There is almost 200k EOS in the Eden treasury that will be programmatically disbursed to Eden Delegates every month.
You can listen to each Chief Delegate express their gratitude, excitement for EOS, and plans to empower the Eden community in the moments after the Chief Delegates were elected on the Eden Election Day Stream. Brock Pierce spoke first about his deep conviction for EOS, plans to bring awareness & media attention to Eden, and a council he is forming to help allocate Eden funding.
Thank you #EOS family.
It is an honor to be elected by the community as an @EdenOnEos Chief Delegate.

The event attracted 500+ users and in the Q&A session many users showed interest in the future development of EOS and the trend of EOS EVM.
The EOS Network is a 3rd generation blockchain platform powered by the EOS VM, a low-latency, highly performant, and extensible WebAssembly engine for deterministic execution of near feeless transactions; purpose-built for enabling optimal web3 user and developer experiences. EOS is the flagship blockchain and financial center of the EOSIO protocol, serving as the driving force behind multi-chain collaboration and public goods funding for tools and infrastructure through the EOS Network Foundation (ENF).
EOS Network Foundation
The EOS Network Foundation (ENF) is a not-for-profit organization that coordinates financial and non-financial support to encourage the growth and development of the EOS Network. The ENF is the hub of the EOS Network, harnessing the power of decentralization as a force for positive global change to chart a coordinated future for EOS.
