Today I read something really hilarious and kinda thought-provoking.
A Hangzhou-based team EOSForce.io announced to launch an EOS mainnet this Friday. My initial reaction is like everybody else: what the hell? did they already vote for “Go”?
I always know that there is never a dull day in the crypto world, but seriously? Two EOS mainnets? This is a fork!
If we define BTC as a chain of store of value, BCH cash, ETH smart contract, then EOS is a chain of …..hmmm, I sincerely don’t know what it is.
But I guess you would agree with me that EOS represents a form of innovation. Millions of TPS, zero-fee, DPOS mechanism, BPs, voting and governance,etc.
Besides all of these new tech features, EOS is the longest-running ICO that started in summer 2017 and stayed open through a series of auction periods through June 1, 2018.
The price of per EOS hit $20 earlier this year, but I didn’t hold any EOS tokens. I don’t understand how come the price goes high when it doesn’t even have a wallet and no mainnet. To be fair, it does have a mainnet now, but with all kinds of “epic”bugs and somehow the EOS blockchain even stopped.
The night I realized blockchain can be halted, I almost peed myself! This is believably! How could the blockchain be halted? How could token holders transact on such an stoppable chain? But all of these certainly didn’t kill off EOS holders’ confidence.
My friends(whales) all told me that “it’s a good thing, we’re lucky to have these problems in an early stage. All for a better future.”
Nice sayings. I love how harmonious the EOS community is. Block.one raised $4 billion, they offer a stoppable chain and investors says ok to it. So harmonious! (gosh, i can’t imagine if Amaury or Vitalik did anything wrong with the BCH and ETH, they’d be scolded badly… )
All of the sudden, EOSForce stood up and announced that the EOS chain launched is not secure and they will launch another one on June 22th and give token holders who vote dividends.
Not surprisingly, the EOSForce is seen as a villain by the whole EOS community. They are dubbed as “scammer” and “cheater”.
But personally, I don’t think they are doing anything wrong. Just like Roger ver says that “what’s important is not the name, but the characteristics behind bitcoin.”
So if they think the current mainnet is full of bugs, then do their own version, though I’m not sure if the EOSForce team is so capable to compete with Block. one....
And mostly importantly, I am not sure if they are strong enough to take all of the verbal abuses and insults. Sometimes I wonder if Jihan, Roger and every BCH believer in the world had came to turns with trolls and quit doing right things, BCH could never have gone so far and created so many meaningful and entertaining apps.
Anyway, I hope with BCH, I could become the guy in the picture. RICH,haha
