About

We're an independent Los Angeles, California company dedicated to running EOS block producers and building out the EOS open-source landscape. Our team is composed of engineers with years of cloud infrastructure and distributed systems experience. We aim to harness that to bring enterprise-grade reliability to the EOS project.

Block Producer Candidacy

We are EOS block producer candidates, and believe that we're uniquely suited to be elected.

Block producers

We will initially run block producers in both Amazon and Google clouds, with planned support for more. Our initial buildout will feature technology that enables block producer failover between different clouds. This ensures that cloud computing providers are never single points of failure. The system will build upon the state of the art in cloud infrastructure, using technologies such as Kubernetes and Etcd.

Open-source

Our mission is to advance the EOS open-source ecosystem, and we plan on open-sourcing all of our projects, starting with our block producer failover system. Using our technology, the EOS network will be able to run with unmatched reliability.

Sponsorships

We will sponsor developers to develop tools for EOS using the block reward revenue. These sponsorships will initially be towards developers working on open-source Active EOS projects. However, we will eventually extend this to developers working on the EOS ecosystem at-large. We plan on having an open application process for finding developers in need of sponsorship.

Meetups

We run the Meetup group LA Decentralized Web, which gathers developers to discuss technical aspects of decentralized technologies. We plan on sponsoring EOS and decentralized web-themed events through it.

Open-source

All of our Kubernetes-based software for running redundant block producers is open-source.

EOS cross-cloud failover system

This project enables an organization to run block producers in many different clouds. When an active block producer fails, the software will detect it and promote a standby block producer to take its place, potentially across cloud boundaries. This leads to extremely redundant block producer setups.

EOS Helm charts

This project contains Helm charts for running EOS nodes, including block producers, on Kubernetes clusters. It can be used in development and production environments, and it supports many important features out of the box, such as automatic TLS through Let's Encrypt.
