We Are DutchEOS

A project by driven professionals with a passion for EOS!

Founded in the Netherlands by EOS Enthusiasts our mission is to serve EOS communities and ecosystems by producing blocks reliably, efficiently, and with the highest standard of integrity while being firmly rooted in the community.

Our team taking up this challenge consists of a balanced group of people sharing the vision for a decentralized future and the groundbreaking potential of EOS. We recognize that the next generation of decentralized applications call for a significantly more potent protocol layer and that EOS answers that call.

We have been actively participating in the EOS community since the launch preparations in April, contributing to technical implementation and policy discussions. We were one of the first block producers to register on the mainnet, mere seconds after launch, and with a full service deployment. Since then we have shifted our focus from the technical side to community outreach, compliance and evangelism.

OPERATIONAL FRAMEWORK

Our team has extensive experience with running nodes and pools both on bare metal and in the cloud. Until the dust settles down, we’re sticking with the cloud for the EOS.IO Mainnet. This allows us to be nimble in applying resources where they are needed. Our initial infrastructure consists of a series of Virtual Machines hosted on the Google Cloud Platform in The Netherlands, our home Jurisdiction. Using GCP will help us to maximize uptime for all of our nodes and storage facilities. If you’d like to find more information on Google’s setup in the Netherlands, please go here. Our services are deployed and managed through Kubernetes.

Currently DutchEOS is an active participant in the junglenet (testnet), usually among the first to upgrade when a new version is ready for deployment and helping out the community of smaller Block Producers. You can find us in Junglenet as dutcheosioxx.

If and when we are established as a reward earning block producer, DutchEOS intends to transition to a bare metal core service, possibly augmented with cloud instances.
