MONTREAL, May 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - In a unique worldwide community effort, EOS Canada (Canadian EOS Block Producer Candidate) is one of the leading teams participating in the launch of the EOS network - the most scalable blockchain, starting June 2nd, 2018.
What's Happening in June with EOS?
Following the release of first and second generation protocols, namely Bitcoin in 2009 and Ethereum and 2015, the blockchain space is going to have its third, and most significant technological revolution with the launch of the EOS network.
Starting June 2nd, 2018, in an amazing community effort, block producer candidates from all over the world will use the EOS.IO open source software to launch the EOS network.
EOS.IO is published by Block.one, which raised over US$3 billion through a year-long token distribution ending June 1st, 2018. Developed by Dan Larimer - CTO of Block.one, notable for his role in building Bitshares, a decentralized exchange, and Steemit, a decentralized social media platform, EOS.IO is the first decentralized operating system.
How EOS is Going to Impact the World
EOS is the first platform designed from the ground up for scalability that will allow mainstream adoption of the blockchain - offering enterprise level speed and performance to its users and applications that build atop it. For Alexandre Bourget, Co-Founder at EOS Canada "The new set of possibilities offered by such massive performance has never been imagined yet. We believe that the EOS.IO software has the potential to change the way we do one of the most foundational human activity: exchange and transact with one another.".
What Is the Role of EOS Canada?
Leading through technology, EOS Canada built and offered to the community the EOS BIOS boot orchestration software, the first tool to help Block Producers globally launch the EOS network as well as key community tools necessary for the ecosystem to flourish. Deeply committed to contribute to the growth of the ecosystem, EOS Canada is looking to become one of the elected 21 Block Producers.
"We see Block Producers as custodians of the network, the trusted keepers that will maintain and secure it. It is an imminently technology-focused endeavour, and we want to contribute on that front," says Marc-Antoine Ross, President and CEO at EOS Canada.
