WHAT DO WE DO WITH EOS

Operate

We have people, budget and experience available to operate the block producer infrastructure. Our people have extensive experience in managing high profile banking, identity and website environments – and protecting them from cyberattacks including DDoS. We have been developing and operating trading platforms for multiple years. Our team is available 24×7.

Develop

We want to invest in building infrastructure and distributed applications that offer real value for our community. Our investments will most likely go to apps and dapps on topics such as on-boarding, identity, reputation, security and usability of the platform.

Govern

We navigate on global human values such as freedom, privacy and property. And comply with the European rules that have translated these values into laws. This means e.g. that we work on a privacy-by-design basis, as required under EU law. We advise on and try to ensure contract and ownership compatibility within the existing legal framework.

Promote

We organize meetups and workshops for developers, entrepreneurs, and investors to evangelize the power of the concepts behind EOS. We also plan to help on-board companies by providing lectures and on-premise training. Our team of crypto specialists focuses on helping to build and operate the infrastructure to support the EOS community.

Mission

EOS Amsterdam aims to accelerate EOS mass adoption through security, governance, and intercultural cooperation.

ACCOUNTABLE & TRANSPARENT

Because we are a legal entity registered in the Netherlands, we can be held responsible for our actions, changes, failures and investments. We stay in close contact with our community. The Netherlands is a mature democracy and a stable member of the European Union.

CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVING

We consistently review our operations and infrastructure to find improvements. We believe that repetitive and marginal improvements result in a qualitative service.

LOCATED IN AMSTERDAM

Dutch, and especially Amsterdam people, are well known for their liberal minds and their open view to the world. It is the people’s minds that host such an important internet hub function.

RECIPROCITY

We have a full-time involvement in the EOS community. Therefore, we have our ears to the ground. We know what the community wants and give back to them.

SECURE

We collaborate closely with Kahuna, a managed security services provider in the Netherlands and Spain. This company will secure, manage and monitor our block producer infrastructure 24×7.

INDEPENDENT

People, budget and experience; everything is already in place to set up and monitor the block producer infrastructure. The result? We are able to operate independently.

Tech

EOS Amsterdam started on Google Cloud, but that did not scale enough so we moved to dedicated hardware. We are continuously improving our platform. Currently our two data centers are rented and loadbalanced over Germany and Finland. When we reach the top 30 standby location again we will add servers in the Netherlands in the AMS-IX.
Our Europechain servers are in the Netherlands.
