Mainstream Media Coverage
Over the past weeks, there’s been widespread media coverage about EOS in many of the most popular publications in the world. Leading media outlets, such as Wired and Forbes, are sharing educational articles that help everyone understand the tremendous potential of EOS to create positive global change and profound benefits for all!
In particular, there are two major stories about EOS that leading publishers are now understanding and sharing with the audiences around the world. First, the EOS community is succeeding independently of the original development company, Block.One, and thriving with the leadership from our amazing team at the EOS Network Foundation. Secondly, the upcoming EOS EVM is the most performant EVM in the world and can completely revolutionize the blockchain ecosystem.
For years, people have conflated EOS with Block.one. Many blockchain industry leaders overlooked the vibrant community of incredible builders on EOS because of a perceived association with B1’s dubious actions after raising $4 billion in the largest ICO of all time. Now, the world is beginning to understand how the EOS community took its future into its own hands, independently of misaligned corporate interests, to flourish as one of the largest & most independent DAOs in the world. A major turning point in the public perception of EOS occurred last week when Wired released an insightful new article, entitled “EOS Was the World’s Most-Hyped Blockchain. Its Fans Want It Back.”
This lengthy and deeply researched article provides a high level overview about much of the history between EOS & Block.One, details a myriad of unfulfilled commitments made by Block.One, recounts the formation of the ENF, and tells an important story that shows how EOS embodies the full power & ethos of Web3. The writing is surprisingly well-informed and helps many people learn about EOS, especially since Wired is one of the most popular publications in the world and shared the story with over ten million followers on Twitter. Since the release of the Wired article, many other media outlets are now publishing similar stories to help everyone understand how EOS is now thriving as an independent community. For example, you can read recent articles about the independent success of EOS on Coinpedia, Crypto Bulls Club, CoinCheckup, Crypto News Flash, Zy Crypto, and Cryptodaily.
In addition to Wired and all of these crypto publications, EOS was also featured this week in Forbes, which is perhaps the most popular business publication in the world with almost 20 million followers on Twitter. This Forbes article also makes a clear distinction between EOS & the former developers by showing how the EOS community halted payments of 250 million dollars to Block.one, but the majority of the article focuses on the immense power of the EVM, or Ethereum Virtual Machine. Forbes features the EOS EVM as the “slickest EVM yet, with performance that will put Ethereum imitators in the shade.”
Clearly, Forbes has been doing their research about the upcoming Trust EVM, which empowers developers to easily build with the familiar blockchain tools of Ethereum and operate dApps with the industry leading throughput, security, scalability, energy efficiency, composability, & reliability of EOS. With half second block times and the EOS Network’s proven ability to smoothly process over 120 million daily transactions without any network disruptions, the Trust EVM is orders of magnitude more powerful than other EVMs and can completely revolutionize the EVM dApp ecosystem with profound benefits for all kinds of uses, such as GameFi and DeFi.
With Forbes, Wired, and many other leading publications sharing stories about EOS with many millions of savvy readers, the world is beginning to realize the tremendous potential of EOS to create positive global change. EOS has been battle tested for over four years and with the ENF now at the helm, we are able to offer tremendous value to builders through multiple grant and incentive programs. With our vibrant, global community of incredibly talented creators who have been diligently building with EOS for almost five years, EOS represents the essence of self-reliant communities empowering each other with the immense benefits of Web3. With Trust EVM, EOS developers are more empowered than ever with instant access to open source code libraries, SDKs, and popular toolkits that pave the way for rapid adoption. Upon launch, Trust EVM will be the most performant EVM on the market and will already be equipped with a full suite of world class products, business cases, marketing, and growth strategies. The Mainnet Launch of Trust EVM, EVM Product Suite, and EVM Launchpad are scheduled for Q3 of this year.
Share the news with friends to help everyone enjoy the benefits of EOS and get ready for much more exciting content from leading media outlets coming soon. Millions of people are about to see what happens when you combine the world’s most capable & passionate Web3 community, the most performant technology in the blockchain industry, and the enormous swell of innovation that’s been quietly building momentum for years to create profound benefits with EOS!
Yield+ Blue Paper Preview
We released a preview of the highly anticipated Yield+ Blue Paper to help foster thriving DeFi applications, yield earning opportunities, and wealth generation with EOS!
Yield+ is a community initiative designed to increase opportunities for dApp developers to be rewarded and users to earn yield on EOS. The Yield+ working group has designed & proposed an on-chain Liquidity Rewards Program that directly measures and rewards increased economic activity on EOS, based on TVL (Total Volume Locked). The Yield+ Blue Paper is currently undergoing final formatting after translations to Chinese & Korean and will be published on May 26th. In anticipation of this exciting liquidity incentive program to generate yield opportunities on EOS, we released a sneak peak to show what you can expect from the Yield+ initiative & the upcoming Blue Paper.
The beautifully designed & thoroughly researched Blue Paper features 69 pages of insightful information from many of the most talented builders in DeFi, including EOS Nation, 0rigin, DefiBox, Greymass, Pizza DeFi, EOS Asia, and Joe Louis. The table of contents outlines an abundance of solutions to create ever deeper liquidity on EOS, with introductions to the teams, general explanations about DeFi, research about comparable liquidity incentive programs, data modeling & risk analysis, treasury governance & funding, oracles, and deliverables. In addition to the forthcoming Blue Paper, the deliverables of Yield+ include an elegantly designed Yield+ portal with many helpful details for builders & investors, on-chain incentive program contracts, oracles to monitor each dApp’s “true” TVL, and recurrent data analysis for assessing & reporting outcomes to the EOS community.
Yield+ is carefully designed with the best insights from all around the blockchain industry to bring more DeFi activity and yield opportunities to EOS. Upon launch, developers will be able to apply to participate in the Yield+ program and approved projects will be eligible to claim daily EOS rewards according to tiers of TVL. The Yield+ initiative will be rolled out in stages, offering more rewards and support for a wider range of assets as time goes on. The Yield+ Portal & Smart Contracts development is already funded & underway to ensure that Yield+ will be ready before the launch of Trust EVM, the most performant EVM in the world.
Pomelo Season 2 Analysis Report
Pomelo Season 2 is in the books and the Pomelo team released a careful analysis with many interesting details about the distribution of matching pool funds for public goods!
Overall, Pomelo Season 2 was a huge success with $1,061,724 raised to support public goods for the benefit of the EOSIO ecosystem. In addition to $888,888.88 that we contributed to the Pomelo matching pool, Pomelo also raised an addition five thousand EOS from Pomelo NFT sales, over three thousand EOS from contribution fees, and the EOS Community donated approximately $150k to public goods on EOS. We will also release more details soon regarding an additional contribution of $125k to public good grant owners.
The report shows many helpful graphics to help everyone understand the distributions of matching pool funds, such as pie charts of fund distribution by category, geographical location, and over 130 projects. EOS Web Plugin Wallet, Wombat Dungeon Master, and Anchor Wallet were the most highly funded projects this season and each received approximately $50k in matching funds. The report also provides details about fifteen projects that were disqualified based on evidence of quid pro quo, sybil attacks, or collusion. The Pomelo team is sharing these details in a transparent manner and recommending some adjustments to the matching pool distribution to help ensure that only valid donor contributions are rewarded, everyone understands the rules for future seasons, and the EOSIO ecosystem benefits as much as possible. Grant owners have the opportunity to appeal adjustments and all qualified grant owners will soon receive instructions to claim their matching allocations.
In addition to the information written in the report, you can also see the spreadsheet with raw data for all contributions and a graph overview of donations between all contributors. We appreciate the rigorous analysis from the Pomelo team and all of the amazing builders creating public goods for the benefit of EOSIO. Pomelo Season 2 was much bigger than Season 1 and we look forward to continued growth during the next seasons in the coming months. With the upcoming distribution of funds and the profound long-term benefits of reputation & relationship building with Pomelo, the EOS Community is more empowered than ever to create public goods and positive global change.
