You can explore each dApp in the high resolution PDF version of the EOS dAPP Map with clickable links and see more great content about EOS from the Bees on the burgeoning EOS Bees Youtube Channel.

Trust EVM Updates

Following the monumental announcement of Trust EVM, the EOS community & EVM enthusiasts are studying and discussing an abundance of exciting content about the most performant EVM in the world!

Trust EVM is an Ethereum Virtual Machine based on the EOS network, empowering developers with familiar blockchain tools & code to operate their apps with the industry leading throughput, scalability, security, composability, and reliability of EOS. With 0.5 second block times & 10,000+ TPS, 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.

The Trust EVM features full RPC compatibility and enables all existing Solidity based contracts, tooling, SDKs, & code libraries to be interoperable with EOS. This will greatly help attract new developers, dApps, & end users to EOS and make it much easier for developers to build amazing applications on EOS. Ethereum native applications can seamlessly be ported to EOS EVM, which supports popular Ethereum tools like Remix, Metamask, Truffle, Hardhat, and GraphQL APIs. In addition, the Trust EVM runtime maintains full compatibility with the rest of the EOS dApp ecosystem, allowing tokens to be trustlessly moved between native EOS and EOS EVM.

In the weeks since the announcement, the EOS community has been closely studying the details and buzzing with enthusiasm about the potential of Trust EVM. During this week’s EOS Fireside Chat, we discussed how Trust EVM benefits EOS, the EVM token sale, and the upcoming Yield+ Blue Paper, which is creating economic incentives to increase liquidity & yield earning opportunities on both native EOS and EOS EVM.

Helios recently published an interview with Tobias Graf, an EVM developer who is planning to integrate the popular apps JulWallet and JulSwap with Trust EVM to enable non-custodial trading & purchases with EOS in over 60 million shops worldwide. Many more EVM developers are discussing the technical details of EOS EVM in the Trust Developer Telegram & Discord and we’ve already heard exceptional reviews from Ethereum developers who are amazed by the performance of EOS EVM.

We’re also excited to see that Cool Wave Capital returned from a lengthy hiatus to release CWC Newsletter #52 and express their confidence about the Trust EVM. In the newsletter, CWC Partner and blockchain researcher Taylor Ryker wrote, “With Trust EVM and the leadership of the ENF, I am happy to see that EOS will be more of an “Ethereum Saver” by allowing EVM dApps to reach their full potential — mass adoption for the beginning of Web3.”

This week, we also published the text transcript for the monumental EOS EVM Launch Event, featuring keynote speeches from Yves La Rose, founder and CEO of EOS Network Foundation, Matias Romeo, technical leader of the EVM+ working group, and the Trust EVM core team member Dr. Yarkin Who. You can also listen to the event to learn more about the tremendous benefits of EOS EVM.

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 Trust EVM team has proven their ability to execute and have the experience & connections needed to revolutionize the blockchain ecosystem. The Mainnet Launch of Trust EVM, EVM Product Suite, and EVM Launchpad are scheduled for Q3 of this year.

EOS Community Fireside Chat

Approximately fifty passionate EOS community members met for this week’s EOS Community Fireside Chat to discuss a wide variety of exciting topics!

In addition to thoughtful discussions about Trust EVM, we also discussed Pomelo Season 2, building reputation with the community, ENF Grant Framework, ENF Ventures, and the Yield+ Blue Paper.

We are scaling up our content production team to create a steady stream of exciting, information-packed short clips to help everyone efficiently learn about EOS. You can now also quickly navigate the EOS Fireside Chats, Weekly Mandel Upgrade Meetings, EOSIO+ Coalition Meetings, EOS Hot Sauce, and many more videos via detailed timestamps in the YouTube video descriptions.

With the immense amount of excellent content that our community is creating about EOS every day and our new content production workflows, we are creating an archive of well produced content to attract talented new community members and educate the world about the profound benefits of EOS. You can join the EOS Fireside Chats and speak with community leaders in Discord every Wednesday at 19:00 UTC.

EOSIO+ Coalition Is On The Move!

The EOSIO Coalition met for the second public meeting and we released the first EOSIO+ Coalition Report!

In an unprecedented show of cross-network collaboration, the EOSIO+ working group is steadily evolving into a formidable coalition consisting of representatives from four initial founding blockchains: EOS, Telos, WAX, & UX Network. Together, these blockchains have committed $8 million in annual funding to advance development of the open source EOSIO protocol. With the coalition just one month old, we published the first bi-weekly EOSIO+ Coalition Report to track the coalition’s progress. The first 2 million USDT has been deposited into a multisig treasury account on EOS and the official voters and vote weight for the MSIG treasury account have been defined.

During the second EOSIO+ Coalition meeting, EOSIO community leaders discussed a variety of topics including creation and funding of the treasury, governance, development initiatives, communications, the Scalability+ working group, and more. The Scalability+ working group, an EOSIO Coalition sub-group, also had their first meeting to define objectives and discuss potential KPIs to improve scalability on EOS with various technical improvements such as faster finality & RAM optimizations. In addition, the EOSIO+ Software Development Subgroup is defining a set of standards & organizational processes to integrate code from outside developers, determine how various demands for new code development will be prioritized & implemented, and create a process for performing ongoing release of new code to improve EOSIO for all.

Weekly Mandel Upgrade Meeting

Twenty one EOS community leaders met for the twelfth 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 week’s meeting, the participants discussed progress with various operating systems, surveys for Pomelo participants, Web IDE, Docker, testing progress on the Jungle Testnet, and much more. You can easily browse & navigate a more detailed overview of the discussion with timestamps for each topic in the video description on Youtube. You can read the summary notes for this meeting and find summaries & recordings for all Mandel Upgrade Meetings in the Mandel Github repository.

WordProof Appoints New CEO

Wordproof announced Marloes Pomp as the new CEO of WordProof, who will help increase transparency, accountability, and trust on the internet with the power of EOS. Marloes takes over for Sebastiaan van der Lans, the founder of WordProof, who will continue to be responsible for daily operations of WordProof as COO.

WordProof aims to create a new standard for a more reliable, safe, and trustworthy internet with the WordProof Timestamp Ecosystem, which empowers internet users & content creators with tools that make it easy to timestamp website data to EOS. In 2020, WordProof was awarded a €1 million grant as the winners of “Blockchains for Social Good” contest hosted by the European Innovation Council (EIC). WordProof has made considerable progress since earning then, including a partnership with Yoast SEO which is one of the most popular WordPress plugins with over 350 million downloads.

We believe that the WordProof Timestamp Ecosystem is a public good
with a legitimate mass adoption use case, so we are supporting WordProof
as its matching partner for the next round of grant funding for the EIC Accelerator Program. This ENF grant will ensure that WordProof prioritizes EOS as its blockchain of choice for timestamping as it matures to become a market leader with integrations into major search engines and
many of the most popular websites in the world.
