DutchEOS Values, Mission and Code of Conduct
These are our values, our mission and our code of conduct. Together they are our principles and our pledge to the EOS community.
DutchEOS’ mission is to serve the EOS ecosystem by producing blocks reliably, efficiently, and with the highest standard of integrity while being firmly rooted in the community.
Code of Conduct
To accomplish our mission, we commit to the following Code of Conduct.
As a Block Producer we will always act with honesty, integrity and apply the highest ethical standards in all aspects of our conduct, including the resolving of conflicts. This also entails abiding by all aspects of the EOS constitution and exceeding those where applicable.
Our culture is one of inclusion. We extend trust and respect to all.
We will never pay voters for their support. Voters can expect us to contribute to the community as a whole through projects that benefit the EOS ecosystem.
As a Block Producer will maintain full operational and financial independence at all times. This includes no operational control by any outside investors, and no ownership stake held by any individual or entity that holds vested interest stakes in other EOS.IO block producers. Currently the 4 founders jointly have 100% ownership and we will announce any ownership changes publicly.
This leads to the matter of self preservation. Being independent, we cannot perform our mission without support of the community, and we will work hard to get this support.
We aim to be a leading example in regards to service architecture, processing performance, network security and availability. We promise to use block rewards preferentially to fulfil these obligations. Only when we are able to prove that the resources we offer meet the demands of the network we will allocate funds for other purposes.
We strive to maintain compliance where applicable, not limited to our the EOS Constitution, EOS Block Producer Agreement, the DutchEOS Code of Conduct, and (inter)national law. We review this compliance regularly.
We will publish full financial disclosures on a quarterly basis from the moment we receive block rewards. Governance decisions and -operations by DutchEOS will be published timely.
We create and promote content and tools that further EOS education and evangelization.
We welcome all opportunities to cooperate with other global Block Producers, regardless of geographic location, that do not compromise our financial, political, or operational independence. Additionally we will not collude with other block producers, give preferential treatment to any actor in the EOS ecosystem or run more than one BP node within any chain.
We will publish our point of view and intentions on any matter which requires Block Producers to reach consensus as soon as we have decided internally.
