What is EdenOS?

The goal of EdenOS is to give the EOS community a decentralized, transparent, democratic, governance process.

Eden is a community of individuals cooperating to maximize the independence of its members and thereby securing life, liberty, property, and justice for all.

One of the principles of Eden is that two people working together are stronger than two uncoordinated individuals. By working together both people increase their individual power and independence in the world. Anytime two or more people come together a process is needed for consensus building and delegation of authority.

Eden OS is a unique governance process that leverages the wisdom of the crowds to identify the best community representatives in a manner that has as its goal the avoidance of devolving into party politics, popularity contests, or incumbent advantage.

One of the most important ways any community can achieve independence is to adopt its own currency. Currency is one half of most transactions and represents the economic power of the individuals and the community as a whole. The Eden community has chosen EOS to be its currency of choice and will work to maximize the utilization and adoption of EOS as a currency both within the community and outside.

Eden OS is the “operating system” of this community and it governs how community members are added and removed as well as how community funds are allocated to representative members. Eden operates under the principles of true democracy, which includes the principle of voluntary consent. This means that you must be invited to join and that you can leave (or be asked to leave) at any time. The goal of the community is to create an environment where everyone benefits by maintaining a voluntary alliance governed by EdenOS.

While the Eden community may be invite-only, members are encouraged to be proactive in identifying and inviting others to join the community. The more people who join Eden the stronger we all become. Anyone interested in joining is encouraged to join our discussion forums forums.eoscommunity.org and engage with the Eden community.

Thanks for posting this. This is the closet thing to an answer to this question I could find after hearing about EdenOS on the EverythingEOS podcast. Can’t wait to read the book.

What was left unanswered? Please let us know.

Nothing, this is a good answer. What I meant was that when I first heard about this, a quick google search for EdenOS didn’t yield anything “official” so I had to dig a little to figure out what it was exactly. The name made it seem like an operating system, which in a sense it is, but it’s clear to me now that it’s more a system of self-governance.

This post is actually one of the top results now if you google “EdenOS EOS”

I support and agree with this description with the exception of the following edition:

I feel it is best to insert the words “in a manner that has as its goal the avoidance of devolving into party politics…etc.”

As speaking in absolutes at this point, makes it seem that the mere fact of participating in this system will avoid the things you mentioned, but in fact this is a continuing struggle in every election as their are more famous members of the community, and they have closer friends or supporters, and there are factions with temptations to help or support those they know, coopting the system. Whether or not we achieve the stated goal will depend on having an active and knowledgeable membership.

This is a wiki post, so you should be able to edit it. Please try and let me know.

I like the idea of the Eden community, but why use EOS as the currency when it is all public? Shouldn’t it be important for a currency to have some level of privacy?
