Code of Conduct
Honesty, Integrity and Ethics
We will act with honesty, integrity and apply the highest ethical standards in all aspects of our conduct. This includes abiding to all aspects of the EOS constitution and exceeding those where applicable, which includes never paying for votes.
We understand that our role is to produce blocks and enact orders from arbitrations. We will do this with all diligence and promptness. To the best of our ability within legal constraints, we will disclose all information about our BP operations. We want EOS to succeed, and we want and believe that our participation is very beneficial to ensure that success.
We will continue to participate and engage in all the Hong Kong forums related to the EOS user community, and continue to maintain the EOS.IO Hong Kong Telegram channel. We have started and will continue to help lead technical discussions such as the BP Infrastructure Telegram group. We pledge to accelerate and increase our presence and involvement via multiple methods, not only online, but also via participation, sponsorship and hosting of events worldwide in both major international cities and developing regions.
We will act as the host for events in remote locations and provinces which are often overlooked. We want an inclusive, welcoming, stimulating, socio-cultural diverse and healthy environment. First and foremost, we will educate. Anyone may be a part of the EOS community. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community. (Burning Man Principle #1)
We will expand our social involvement in the international communities using all mediums. The language and cultural barriers are steep for many of us, but we shall invest more and more resources to both represent ourselves and our community, and to act as a global bridge between East and West.
We will work with BPs and DAPP developers focussed on developing countries, to bring the power and capabilities of the governed blockchain to developing economies, especially in Asia and Africa which have large numbers of unbanked people, punished by the so-called "poor tax" of inefficient systems. We believe we can be a small part of creating improvements, which will benefit untold millions of lives.
We are committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in community, can occur only through personal participation. Everyone is invited to vote. Everyone is invited to participate in community decisions. Everyone is invited to experience happiness. “We make the world real through actions that open the heart” (Burning Man Principle #9).
We will encourage the EOS voting community to be informed and to vote their mind. We will educate and present information in a way which is accessible to the community, so that they are indeed informed voters.
Political and Financial Independence
We will maintain full operational and financial independence at all times. This includes no operational control by outside investors, and no ownership stake held by any individual or entity that holds vested interest stakes in other EOS.IO block producers. HKEOS will not collude with other block producers or run more than one BP node within any chain to further strengthen this principle.
High Network Performance
We will always place the highest priority on investing back into the required network infrastructure and people to enable the EOS network to perform at the highest level and scale effectively.
We will spare no cost or effort on servers and network connectivity, with dedicated high quality technical staff to operate 24/7/365. We will add API access in many locations worldwide, to maximize the public and DAPP benefit from our service.
We will seek to work with others in the global EOS community to continually improve the security and reliability of voting portals for all tokens holders. This may include support to independent efforts outside our direct control.
We will welcome all opportunities to cooperate with other global Block Producers, regardless of geographic location, that do not compromise our financial, political, or operational independence. We believe that cooperation is healthy for the whole ecosystem and allows for the completion of tasks larger than ourselves, including, but not limited to coordinating software upgrades, properly diversifying network infrastructure across wide geopolitical regions, and always listening to the community’s voice.
We will provide transparency into our operating team, shareholders, and financials while exceeding that required by company law and the EOS.IO Constitution. The HKEOS team will be transparent to the community and will always seek to exceed ongoing community transparency requirements as they evolve.
Amendments to our Code of Conduct
Amendments to our Code of Conduct will be informed by the community’s will and will be broadcast to community members through all viable communication channels before formal adoption.
