Legal Action Against B1 goes ‘Well Beyond’ EOS Token Sale
This week the EOS Network Foundation (ENF) shared some more details surrounding the potential lawsuit against B1. In the above image shared in a tweet, Yves La Rose explains why the ENF believes it has the moral authority to pursue an investigation into the extent of the harm done by B1 to EOS.
Yves La Rose also highlights the fact that the wrong doings extend far beyond the ICO and include many broken promises from B1. Many individuals and companies took action based on those promises and when B1 failed to fulfil its commitments many network participants were directly harmed.
Finally, Yves La Rose also clears up the fact that, while the hashtag #4BillionDAO exists, it does not mean that the lawsuit against B1 will be for 4 billion dollars. In fact, the exact value of any potential claim against B1 has yet to be determined.
For even more context and information surrounding this topic, head on over to Bywire News for an exclusive interview with Yves La Rose.
Recover+: What To Do Next in an EOS Emergency
Recover+ is one of 7 sponsored ENF working group and in this article we learn a bit more about the Recover+ approach and the topics they plan on discussing in their upcoming Blue Paper.
“Led by the team at PIZZA.FINANCE, the Recover+ working group aims to create a crisis management framework for EOS. To achieve this, plans include developing emergency contracts, protocols, guides (including steps to take in an emergency), FAQs, and advice on who to contact for help and support immediately after an exploit occurs. Some additional proposals that may come out of Recover+ include DAO insurances and potential rewards to help EOS parties respond to lost or stolen assets more effectively.”
Another important topic being addressed by Recover+ is establishing standards and procedures surrounding the so-called “God Mode” powers that are accessible by block producers when they reach 15/21 consensus.
We look forward to reading the Recover+ Blue Paper which is expected to be published in the coming weeks.
/rant: “Idea Wall”, “Voting vs Staking” & “Pieces of the Puzzle”
Yves La Rose reflects on his interactions with the extensive community of stakeholders and token holders throughout the EOS ecosystem and how they inform and inspire his rants, as well as the vision that the ENF aims to achieve.
Yves La Rose speaks about the early narratives that oriented the #EOS community around use of the word “voting” and how our choice of words affects both local and global perception of the network. #EndRant #EOSIO #ENF
In this rant, Yves La Rose bends philosophy towards pragmatism, asking, are functions emergent properties of the system they exist within? What gives them value, and how does this inform the way we go about contributing for the benefit of a system?
Pomelo Grant Collectible NFTs — Sold Out!

EOS Fireside Chats Now Streamed & Recorded
Starting last week, the weekly EOS Community Fireside chats will now be restreamed live from Discord and onto a variety of other social media networks including Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and possibly others.
We think the fireside chats have been very enjoyable and we want to showcase this event to as many people as possible. This also means you can now watch a replay of the event in case you are not available to join us live at 20:00 UTC on Wednesday. All fireside chats will be uploaded to the EOS Nation YouTube channel.
Join us on the EOS Community Discord server and jump into the fireside chat with us this week! Last week we broke our all-time-high in terms of attendance with over 60 people joining the Discord event and that’s not even counting the additional viewers on Twitter and YouTube.
Mandel Upgrade Calls Now Publicly Available
The EOS community is currently working towards upgrading the EOSIO codebase, which is called the Mandel upgrade. While this upgrade is technically a hard-fork, it does not mean that the network is splitting in two or that a new token will be created, as is the case when other networks, for example Bitcoin, goes through a hard-fork.
On EOS, a hard-fork means that node operators need to upgrade to the new Mandel codebase in order to remain on the network. For this reason, Daniel Keyes of EOS Nation is leading a series of EOS Mandel Upgrade calls to coordinate with the EOS community and make sure that all relevant stakeholders are informed about the steps they need to take regarding this upgrade. These calls are now publicly available on the EOS Nation YouTube channel.
This process is not new to EOS Nation as they were the ones who coordinated the hard-fork for the EOSIO 1.8 upgrade which happened in September of 2019.
Tipit NFT Distribution
Tipit.io has released a new feature that allows users to add a tag such as “.tiplove” to various tweets, allowing organizers of various marketing campaigns to easily airdrop NFTs to users who engage with the tag. This feature was requested by the EOS Bees who plan on using it to reward active worker bees on Twitter and was tested in public last week for Valentines Day.
EOS PowerUp NFTs Activated
EOSPowerUp NFTs have been activated! You can now stake your Bronze PowerUp NFT in order to receive a double allocation of CPU & NET when you request a free power up from EOSPowerUP.io.
Don’t have any Bronze EOSPowerUp NFTs? Simply make a donation to qualify for the weekly leaderboard and at the end of the week you’ll get some Bronze NFTs airdropped into your account!
Brock Mentions EOS on FOX Business
This year’s SuperBowl commercials were filled with ads about exchanges which led to many news outlets discussing crypto, such as FOX Business who invited Brock Pierce to talk crypto. Near the end of the video, Brock Pierce mentions EOS giving it some mainstream exposure. Nice!
EOSIO+ Meeting Recording (February 17)
There are many deployed networks that use EOSIO. The core software that these networks are based on must serve the purposes of the networks that run it. Each of these networks has its own use and business cases. There should be some egalitarian system that allows parties that depend on EOSIO to help fund, organize, and prioritize the future of that software.
The purpose of the ENF EOSIO+ Working Group is to define and create a functional and efficient entity that will oversee and evangelize the codebase.
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.
