API+ Blue Paper Released
APIs are basic blockchain infrastructure that should be offered as public good.
Users need to be able to read and write data to/from the blockchain. This is done using APIs that can be self-hosted or, more often, operated by teams offering it as a service and reducing complexity for developers.
APIs have varying degrees of complexity. The ones used to create information on the blockchain can be relatively simple to run. However, a large volume of incoming requests or managing a lot of historical blockchain data make operations challenging.
Well-functioning APIs are critical in attracting developers.
There are several impediments to having the best possible developer experience. They include:
🔹Lack of standards within EOSIO
🔹Specialized community-build solutions are not supported
🔹Operators providing services do so at a financial loss
🔹Lack of participation in the development and adoption of blockchain standards
The API+ working group has proposed several projects to fill critical gaps in the #EOS ecosystem’s basic public infrastructure which will accelerate developer adoption.
For a quick overview, read the one-pager published on Medium and then dive into the full API+ Blue Paper by downloading the PDF document.
Blue Paper Feedback Bounties
The ENF is inviting the broader EOS community to weigh-in on the Blue Papers and to provide valuable feedback to the ENF and its working groups while they work towards the implementation phase!
In order to incentivize such feedback, bounties of 100 EOS, 1000 EOS and 2000 EOS are up for grabs for community members who submit longform feedback!
Here are the categories of longform written feedback the ENF is seeking:
- Funding Proposal Feedback
- Alternative Solution
- Enhanced Solution
- Additional Section & Solution
To be eligible for the longform bounties, feedback must be submitted before these deadlines:
- Audit+: March 12th
- Core+: March 12th
- Audit+: March 19th
- Wallet+: TBD
Please make sure to read the Blue Paper Community Feedback Initiative blog post for the full list of criteria that is required for longform feedback to be considered for bounties.
The ENF also welcomes short form feedback via comments on a Google Doc for community members who wish to submit feedback but do not wish to write a long form blog article.
ƒractally White Paper Release
This week, the much anticipated ƒractally White Paper was published and the EOS community has since been engaged in passionate discussions on the subject, including thousands of messages posted in the ƒractally Telegram channel. Since the release, there has been a lot of video content generated (over 4hours!) discussing various aspects of ƒractally which we will share in this article.
The ƒractally White Paper reveal kicked off with a 12 minute overview video published on YouTube.
The next day, on the Weekly EOS Community Fireside Chat, Yves La Rose talked at length about the early feedback he received from various EOS stakeholders in the community. Scroll to the 10 minute mark to hear the start of Yves’ comments.
Up next was a 2-part Bywire News interview with Dan Larimer which goes into greater detail about the philosophy behind ƒractally.
And finally, Dan Larimer dropped in at the 2-hour mark of the 19th Eden Chief Delegate Meeting to share his thoughts on fractally and how it relates to Eden.
#EndRant: Pieces of the Puzzle
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?
#EndRant: It’s All About Balance
Yves La Rose speaks about how he views balance as a guiding principle in his role as Executive Director of the ENF where he’s called upon to integrate many sources of information and make decisions for the benefit of the EOS Network as a whole.
#EndRant: Unrealistic Expectations of Communication
Yves La Rose discusses both the need to temper our expectations around constant updates and also the ENF’s commitment to delivering multilingual content to EOS community members in various regions of the world.
#EndRant: Top Down Pyramid
Yves La Rose rants on what hierarchy & leadership look like in a top down pyramid, or what is sometimes referred to as the servant leader model, while expressing his personal philosophy of learning from, working through, and supporting the empowerment of both individual and community.

EOSIO Swiss Workshop — Special LATAM #5 with Maurice Vanegas
