Hello everyone! I am excited to present an aggressive roadmap for making EdenOS a reality as quickly as possible. First, I need to make some disclaimers to protect everyone involved. Please keep in mind that everything is an estimate and therefore is subject to change. I will attempt to communicate any changes to the projected roadmap as early as possible. Please do not make investment decisions based upon the projections contained herein. Nothing in this proposed roadmap should be interpreted as a legally binding commitment and everything is presented for informational purposes only. With that out of the way, let’s get down to business.
The goal of EdenOS is to give the EOS community the most decentralized, transparent, democratic, governance process of any blockchain. In particular, it is more important than ever for the community to have a means of reaching consensus on who to trust to utilize community funds for the benefit of everyone.
This is part of a larger effort to ensure EOS has a self-sustaining and self-funded vision as well as the means of achieving it independent of any other companies or organizations. The people and consensus are more important than any technology used.
Before getting into the roadmap and proposal to the community I would like to introduce some of the parties involved in making this happen. I have reached out to Brock Pierce and have arranged for the nonprofit organization known as the EOS Alliance to manage the effort of bringing EdenOS to reality. EdenOS is an alliance of people working together to see EOS adopted as a currency and utilized in smart contracts. The EOS Alliance will act as the bridge between the real world and the Eden community.
The plan going forward is to prove the EdenOS governance process works in a transparent and verifiable manner before spending time and money to perfect a fully on-chain implementation. The success of Eden depends upon having the support of the people involved more than any particular on-chain formality.
EdenOS team under the EOS Alliance will propose to the EOS block producers the utilization 1.9 million EOS from the eosio.ramfee account to fund the Eden community once EdenOS has successfully initiated at least 1000 members and held its first election in which a budget will be allocated to about 100 community representatives.
The election process will operate as follows:
- All 1000+ Eden community members will attend a Zoom meeting
- Zoom will automatically assign members to random breakout groups of 10 people
- Each group will have 1 hour to reach 8/10 consensus on a member of their group to represent them. Each group will be responsible for recording their meeting in order for their representative to advance.
- The following day, all 100 representatives will repeat the process and then the final 10 representatives will meet to pick the community leader. Everything will be recorded and logged on the blockchain via IPFS.
A budget of 1.5 million EOS will be divided among representatives according to the following algorithm:
500,000 EOS allocated to the top representative
500,000 EOS divided evenly among the Level 2 representatives
500,000 EOS divided evenly among the Level 1 representatives
Assuming 1000 members and all groups successfully appointing representatives then the outcome would be:
- 1 Level 3 representative with a budget of 500,000 EOS
- 10 Level 2 representative with a budget of 50,000 EOS each
- 100 Level 1 representatives with a budget of 5,000 EOS each
Note that you can be a representative at all 3 levels and would receive the sum of the budgets for each level.
The remaining 400,000 EOS would be allocated to the EOS Alliance to fund a development team to formalize the above process via on chain transactions and gradually reduce community dependence upon the services of Zoom. This 400,000 EOS would be held by the EOS Alliance until the software is complete and the first election using the software is successfully completed. I will fund this development to completion, up to $2 million dollars, and the EOS Alliance will reimburse me with 400,000 EOS after the community block producers have accepted the contract by funding the EdenOS community in 2022.
Most of Q2 will be spent inviting and onboarding members into the community in order to reach the target of 1000 members. During this time, I will invite an initial set of people who will in turn start inviting others. Each new member will attend a Zoom meeting during which they introduce themselves to the community and are endorsed by prior community members. These meetings will be recorded and memorialized via the issuance of up to 8 NFT membership cards per new member. These NFT cards will be distributed to the people recorded in the onboarding video and one will be auctioned to fund the community.
Early Q3 2021, potentially July 4th, will be EOS Independence day where we host the first community election using the 1000+ members who joined in Q2. The block producers can then observe the election process and determine whether or not to release the 1.9 million EOS from the eosio.ramfee account to the community representatives.
Funds are distributed and representatives start utilizing them to achieve the goals dictated by the community consensus.
Development begins on chain smart contracts and interfaces to automate the process that was manually executed above.
Development and testing of the EdenOS contract and interface.
The community deploys the EdenOS contract and prepares for the 2022 election. Chinese, Korean, and Spanish communities start to form utilizing the new software on-chain governance tools.
The community hosts a new election and the EOS Block Producers vote on whether or not to fund the EdenOS community with a budget of 0.25% of EOS supply. Each Eden community (English, Chinese, Korean,and Spanish) would have their own 0.25% budget if the block producers approve it and their communities have at least 1000 members each. If this is approved for at least one community, then the EOS Alliance will release the 400,000 EOS to me.
