EOS Telegram Summary 1/8/18 - Users Launch EOS Testnet, Cardano Sends a Troll

edited January 2018 in General

Today's summary cover image provided by @johnchamberlain - there's also an ongoing contest hosted by @officialfuzzy and @steempowerpics to design our permanent EOS Telegram Summary cover image. Thank you everyone!

First and foremost, we are trying to reach out to EOS Korea, Japan, China, and anyone else unaware - a user testnet has been set up (more info below) and is open for technical types who have played around in the EOS.IO Github and are interested in producing blocks - please email kev@eosgo.io or tweet us or leave a note in the EOS English Telegram.

Onto the summary. Early morning discussion in EOS general focused heavily on Cardano and their response to Dan's dissection. Chat became rather inflammatory and Peter G. found out the fire was being stoked by a troll:

General chat kept reeling:

Later that morning, a conversation about taxes:

And government theft:

Which segued into a discussion about government trust, and Europe put the kid (U.S.) in check:

Some pricing discussion managed to slip past the mighty mods, mainly thanks to a momentary panic:

Keats in Rome started the Wikipedia (soon to be Everipedia?) page for EOS:

Scott T noticed Dan's tweet:

Scott T continued with an article written by Dan last year, which helps explain the evolution of his thinking towards EOS:

And EOS New York officially announced their inaugural meetup:

Someone in EOS Developers asked about hardware wallet support for EOS:

And onto the real action! In a small channel the EOS block producers forged a user run test net (make contact if you're tech-savvy and want to produce blocks). In their words, a summarized version minus many restarts and error fixes:


EOS Go is a community of people launching EOS blockchain - future of the web 3.0 - as envisioned by block.one. Anyone can participate in this historic event by voting with tokens, hosting/attending meetups and launch parties, writing the EOS constitution, picking data centers for block producing, and much more.

If you're interested in being involved with the EOS genesis block, please start by finding your niche on the community forums and resteem us or tweet EOS Go to help spread the word.

Check out BeyondBitcoin.club for weekly EOS Talks every Tuesday at 8pm EST with @officialfuzzy @steempowerpics and @africa !

Telegram users can receive announcements for these daily summaries and other community updates here.

    Great work reaching out to the guys, you're already in before I saw this. There's some demand for a guide on how to start as a BP, you could document your learning process and assemble it for others to help build reputation in the community. Edit looks like @ghoti143 started one, his link is in the Telegram channel.
