  • 1 EOSForce Mainnet Introduction

    1.1 EOSForce Introduction

    EOSForce is committed to exploring a more open crypto economy infrastructure in practice. Through the continuous development of multi-chain architecture blockchain protocol, it meets the diversified consensus requirements of the crypto economy and promotes the application of blockchain technology in various fields.

    EOSForce.io, the most active parallel mainnet in EOSIO ecosystem, has been completed and launched, providing more user-friendly resource model, richer underlying support for developers and fairer governance mechanism for the community. The EOSForce.io mainnet asset can be activated by offline signing with the mapped EOSIO private key.

    1.2 What is EOSC? Is EOSC an airdrop token?

    EOSC is the token of an EOS mainnet launched by EOSForce community. It represents the assets on the EOSForce main chain and can be used for voting rewards, block generating, transferring and trading on exchanges.
    EOSC is not an airdrop token. Users can activate the EOSC account assets by offline signing with the EOSIO private key mapped before June 3, 2018 Beijing time.

    1.3 The difference between EOSC and EOS

    EOSC is the token of the EOS mainnet launched by EOSForce. EOS is the token of the EOS mainnet launched by EMLG. These two assets are different. Currently, AKdex.io Exchange has listed the EOS and EOSC trading pairs.

    1.4 Total amount of EOSC (Including the lock-up plan, and allocation of the rest part)

    The initial circulation of EOSC is 1 billion, and 94.6 million EOSC are issued annually to reward 23 BPs. The BlockOne team will be awarded a prize of 100 million EOSC unlocked every 10 years. And it will continue to do so without interruption.
    According to the proposal of EOSForce mainnet unactivated genesis account lockup plan, on December 20, the unactivated EOSIO genesis account will be locked with 80% of EOSC tokens, and replaced for the same amount of lock tokens. The remaining 20% can be freely used. Token increased annually will be adjusted appropriately according to the existing total amount of EOSC tokens in the mainnet.
    At present, the number of EOSC locked is 672,390,243, and the remaining is 327,609,757.

    1.5 Difference between EOSForce mainnet and EMLG mainnet

    There is more than one EOS mainnet. Currently, the EOS community has launched several mainnets. The mainnet launched by EOSForce community is called EOSForce mainnet and is parallel to the mainnet launched by EMLG.

    When debugging EOS software, we found many unstable factors and there are certain asset security risks. Since EOS itself is a set of open source software, the official does not guarantee security and reliability of the blockchain launched by EOS software. This requires dedicated team for targeted development and testing to maintain the entire blockchain. Therefore, our team carried out strict tests on each function of EOSIO, upgraded and optimized the official codes, prioritized the security and reliability of the whole blockchain, and officially launched the EOSForce mainnet on June 22, 2018.

    EOSForce mainnet added the innovation of voting rewards incentive mechanism, improved the decentralization of one-token-one-vote, charged transaction fees to prevent DDOS attack, optimized the community governance of 23 BPs and introduced the new resource models.

    1.6 Why does EOSForce mainnet change 1-token-30-votes to 1-token-1-vote?

    1-token-30-votes will cause the block producers to form alliances and vote each other, which will seriously affect the decentralization of the blockchain. Such monopoly will bring great harm to the EOS community, while 1-token-1-vote of the EOSForce mainnet can effectively avoid this situation and prevent the mainnet from falling into the centralized governance of the Qatar alliance.
    Block One CEO Brendan Blumer also suggested that EOSIO changes to one-token-one-vote in a telegram group on January 2019.

    1.7 Is this EOSC EOSClassic?

    The full name of EOSC is EOS COIN, which is short for the mainnet token of EOSForce, not EOSClassic.

    3 About voting rewards sharing

    3.1 How to get voting rewards?

    https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/6fdXZNGc2_CgdPpWj5GHwA

    3.2 How do the coins of the voting rewards sharing come out?

    The EOSForce mainnet generates one block every 3s, each block produces 3 EOSC, and it produces about 31.53 million EOSC every year. 70% of the total output goes into the nodes rewards pool based on the voting weights. The nodes distribute the rewards to users according to the rewards ratio they set and the users’ voting weight.

    For example, the rewards ratio set by node mathwalletbp is 99.99%, which means that mathwalletbp pays 99.99% of its rewards pool to the users as voting rewards sharing, and the remaining 0.01% enters its node account.
    Voting annualized returns = (profitable node annual rewards *70% * Percentage of votes * dividend ratio) / number of total votes of the node * 100%

    3.3 How to participate in voting to obtain rewards and get votes redeemed?

    Click "vote" on the right side of the tab of nodes to participate in voting and get rewards. Click "redemption" to modify and withdraw the votes.
    Each time you vote and redeem, you need to pay 0.05EOSC as a handling fee. There is a 3-days lock-up period for redemption, and shall be unlocked and claimed manually 3 days later.
    Click “Dividends to be claimed” on the tab of “My Votes” to receive rewards. Each time you claim the rewards, you need to pay a fee of 0.03 EOSC. A sufficient balance must be set aside as a handling charge before voting.

    4 About nodes

    4.1 How to become an EOSForce Block Producer?

    EN: https://eosforce.github.io/Documentation/#/en-us/eosforce_bp

    4.2 How many block producers in EOSForce community?

    There are more than 100 nodes in EOSForce community, among which the top 23 nodes with votes generate blocks and are called block producers. A node that receives more than 0.5% of the total votes of the current network is a profitable node.

    4.3 The income source of the block producers?

    The initial circulation of EOSC is 1 billion
    One block generated per 3s and 3 EOSC in one block.
    Daily rewards of profitable node = 3 * 20 * 60 * 24 = 86,400 EOSC
    Annual rewards of profitable node = BP daily rewards * 365 = 31,536,000 EOSC

    The reward distribution is as follows:
    The nodes whose votes obtained are more than 0.5% of the total votes of current network are profitable nodes. Among these profitable nodes, there are BPs and BP candidates. The first 23 are BPs and the rest are BP candidates.
    For the BPs, 15% of the income will be credited to its account as basic salary, and 15% of the income will be credited to its account as block-generating reward. And the remaining 70% of the income will go into its account and rewards pool according to the allocation proportion set by the node.
    For the BP candidates, 15% of the income will be credited to its account as basic salary, and 15% of the income will be credited to EOSForce Foundation account Devfund (This account belongs to the community and is used to support the developers. The transaction requires a multi-sign of more than two-thirds nodes) .The remaining 70% of the income will go into its account and rewards pool according to the allocation proportion set by the node.

    4.4 Is voting rewards the same for different nodes?

    Vote for nodes with different annualized interest rates, the voting rewards will be different.
    Users can vote for different nodes according to the annual interest rate and the contribution made by the node.

    5. Lockup plan

    5.1 Why is there less EOSC in the account than at the time of mapping?

    According to the proposal of EOSForce mainnet unactivated genesis account locking plan, on December 20, the unactivated EOSIO genesis accounts are locked with 80% of EOSC tokens, and replaced for the same amount of lock tokens. The remaining 20% can be freely used.

    5.2 Why lock up 80% EOSC of the account?

    Early builders of EOSForce community believe that a large number of unactivated EOSC are not conducive to the future development and construction of the EOSForce mainnet. If these unactivated EOSC are activated after the EOSForce mainnet matures, it is unfair to community builders who have invested time and effort early. In response to this topic, there was a long and repeated discussion in the community, and on November 29, 2018, voted by the block producers and finally approved by 20 votes, 2 votes against, 1 abstention, passed the lock-up proposal jointly proposed by Awake, jiqix, eosou.io and walianwang. On December 20, 2018, EOSForce officially executed the unactivated account EOSC token lock-up contract.

    5.3 Is it possible to unfreeze the locked EOSC in the future?

    There is no suitable solution in the community for how to deal with locked EOSC currently. Members of the community can present their opinions and suggestions to the community and nodes.

    6 The EOSForce DAPP ecosystem

    6.1 Are there any DAPP on EOSForce mainnet currently?

    At present, there are Millionaire, Finger Guess, EOSForce Pixel, Super Card, Big Color Quiz, Smoke and Ashes and Waiting for you. It involves DAPP of public benefit, art, social and finance. In the future, we will develop more DAPPs and build a complete EOS ecological community.

    6.2 How can I participate in DAPP?

    At present, you can participate in voting rewards sharing and various DAPP projects of the EOSForce mainnet via Math Wallet or Awake Wallet.

    7 EOSForce resource model

    7.1 The Difference of resource model between EOSFORCE and EOS EMLG
    CPU and NET resources are allocated based on fees, and RAM resources are allocated based on leases

    7.2 Why does the transfer charge a fee? What resources are you paying for?
    In EOSForce mainnet, each operation needs to consume certain network resources. Because the total network resources are limited, in order to allocate resources fairly and reasonably, and avoid excessive abuse, the EOSForce mainnet has innovatively established a set of model for allocating CPU and NET resources based on handling fee. Under this model, users need to pay a certain fee for each operation to obtain CPU and NET resources. For example, the following operations:
    Transferring: 0.01EOSC
    User Creation: 0.1EOSC
    Voting: 0.05EOSC
    Redemption: 0.05EOSC
    Memory renting: 0.05EOSC
    Rewards Claiming: 0.03EOSC

    7.3 What is the RAM resources of EOSForce mainnet used for? How to obtain RAM resources of EOSForce mainnet? Can RAM resources be bought and sold?

    RAM resources provide users and developers with a memory space for nodes to store data for contract’s reading and writing. The RAM resources in EOSForce mainnet can only be obtained by means of leasing. The upper limit of the RAM can be used by the account is set according to the rent paid by the account. It can only be rented and cannot be bought or sold. In order to facilitate the user's operation, the EOSForce mainnet set an 8kb rent-free quota for each account at this stage, so most ordinary users do not need to care about RAM. Usually, developers need to pay rent for the RAM used by their DApp, including the RAM occupied by the contract and the RAM data generated in the execution.

    7.4 What to do with the handling fee and RAM resources rent?

    Handling fee: The handling fee currently incurred for each transaction will be destroyed.

    Rent: EOSForce mainnet has implemented the function of paying rent for RAM resources by voting rewards. The user votes with a certain amount of EOSC to get the corresponding amount of RAM resources, and pays the rent of the RAM resources with the voting rewards. Currently 1KB RAM resources can be obtained by voting with 10EOSC. The rent will be returned to the rewards pool of the block producers in proportion to the dividend, and will finally return to the voting users.



  • The initial circulation of EOSC is 1 billion, and 94.6 million EOSC are issued annually to reward 23 BPs. The BlockOne team will be awarded a prize of 100 million EOSC unlocked every 10 years. And it will continue to do so without interruption.
    According to the proposal of EOSForce mainnet unactivated genesis account lockup plan, on December 20, the unactivated EOSIO genesis account will be locked with 80% of EOSC tokens, and replaced for the same amount of lock tokens. The remaining 20% can be freely used. Token increased annually will be adjusted appropriately according to the existing total amount of EOSC tokens in the mainnet.
    At present, the number of EOSC locked is 672,390,243, and the remaining is 327,609,757.

    That is so ambiguous and vague. Pleas explain more detailed and specifically about what is initial circulation and the the remaining is 327,609,757, and 100 million EOSC unlocked every 10 years without interruption
