2018 Edition


Overview


Code of  Conduct Overview: External


The EOS Constitution

EOS SW/EDEN and its team members will support and defend the guidelines and governance set forth by the EOS Constitution. By defending the EOS Constitution  we are defending the rights of OES Community, the token holders and the viability of the network.


We are Committed to Engaging with the EOS Community

EOS SW/EDEN and its team members will continue to have healthy and ongoing dialogue with the Token Holders within the EOS Community in order to bring awareness and education. We are passionate about that dialogue going both ways - EOS SW/EDEN will listen and engage multiculturally, whenever, wherever and with whomever we can to the best of our abilities.


Building BLOCKS

EOS SW/EDEN and its team members first priority is in building blocks for the Blockchain. Maintaining and upgrading infrastructure and security will always be the first priority because without safe block production there is no chain. Our system is designed to scale up and down quickly and securely. Block rewards will go first to the ongoing development and growth of that system.

 

Arbitration Decisions

EOS SW/EDEN and its team members will standby and defend all decisions made by the duly appointed or elected EOS Arbitrators. We will uphold the decisions that are made through Arbitration immediately. EOS SW/EDEN and its team members will also not engage in publishing our opinions on active arbitration cases.

Independence

EOS SW/EDEN is an independent Block Producer.

We are not owned, managed or directed by another organization or BP. We are not under the governance or administration of ANY outside company or financial source.

Ownership: EOS SW/EDEN ownership structure is simple. Co-Founder & CTO, Eric Björk owns 50% of the company and Co-Founder & CEO, Vahid Toosi owns 50% of the Company. EOS SW/EDEN is registered in Sweden.


Vote Buying

EOS SW/EDEN and its team members will never pay for votes. Paying for votes is off the table. It does not fit with our values or the nature of the EOS blockchain. We believe it is crucial that we avoid any semblance of vote buying.


RAM Speculation

We at EOS SW/EDEN will never use our BP rewards to buy RAM for the purpose of Speculation. Our desire is to attract all types of developers to build applications on EOS and make the world a better place. We will not participate in "insider trading" by sharing information about RAM with friends or family. No member of the EOS SW/EDEN team will use a personal wallet to speculate on RAM.

The BP Community

EOS SW/EDEN and its team members continue to develop strong relationships with the other BPs in the EOS Community. EOS SW/EDEN values opportunities for cooperation throughout the globe, as long as that cooperation and collaboration does not not compromise our independence in ANY way.

We are building the EOS ecosystem together and together we are stronger.


VALUES


Transparency

EOS SW/EDEN and its team members are committed to BOTH internal and external transparency in regard to our team, business structure and financials. The EOS SW/EDEN Team recognizes the fading public trust and as mankind gives electronic devices a deeper dive into our daily lives, it is our passion that transparency as a core value is evident in our day to day operation. Transparency is the "big picture" of truth.


Honesty

EOS SW/EDEN and its team members are committed to honesty in all verbal, written and external communication. As Transparency is the big Picture of Truth, Honesty is how we verbalize that truth in the details. Clarity and truth allows everyone the opportunity to grow.


Generosity

EOS SW/EDEN and its team members are committed to giving back to the community and to those in need. It’s not a Swedish thing or a Nordic thing, it's a human thing that everyone has the opportunity to be a part of. We don’t live in a vacuum and there are so many tremendous ways to help others especially with Blockchain technology. Being a Block producer opens many doors where generosity can thrive. EOS SW/EDEN and its team members are committed to setting aside after expenses a large share of our Block Rewards for charitable, community and non-profit work.


Education

This is important to us because we believe that educating the community - even our potential competition is good for the EOS ecosystem. The more people know, the stronger our community will become. We Want to Make People Smarter...

Education is vital. The ecosystem of EOS will thrive in an environment where we all grow together.
