EOS and Trust EVM with be making waves at the iconic Marina Bay Sands during Token2049, which is one of the largest blockchain industry events in the world where leaders come together to share views and discuss the future of blockchain. This is the first major crypto event that EOS has sponsored in years since the end of the token sale by the former developers and provides a perfect opportunity to showcase the incredible work & story of the EOS community. The event will take place around the one year anniversary since the formation of the ENF and represents the beginning of a new era in community outreach with the leadership of our amazing team.
As Title Sponsor of Token2049, we’ll have the spotlight to help everyone understand the tremendous progress & potential for EOS to create positive global change. We’ll build relationships with thousands of pioneering industry leaders, companies, and journalists to foster unprecedented growth & innovation with EOS. ENF co-founder Zack Gall shared many exciting details about our sponsorship and presence at the event during this week’s EOS Fireside Chat, including our 190 square foot booth in a prime location near the entrance of exhibition hall, promotion of EOS across Token2049 social media & email marketing, and EOS logos featured on the main stage to be seen on all videos and livestreams. In addition, EOS logos are also featured on the Token2049 website, all printed materials, and signages throughout the venue. In addition to speeches and exclusive events with keynote speakers throughout the conference, we will be the drinks & entertainment sponsor of the closing event and will host a private area to invite guests for informal meetings & business discussions. These events will provide excellent opportunities to build relationships with many of the most talented builders and investors in the world to increase awareness and community engagement for EOS.
In addition to Token2049, we will soon announce our presence & sponsorships at many more world class events as part of our community outreach strategy. After years of quietly doing phenomenal work within our tight knit community, EOS finally has outstanding representation at the world’s largest and most prestigious blockchain industry events.

With Token2049 and many other exciting conferences in the future, we’re in the perfect position to stoke the curiosity of blockchain industry leaders and help everyone in the world tap into the unlimited opportunities of EOS!
Yield+ Blue Paper
The Yield+ Working Group released the highly anticipated Yield+ Blue Paper to help develop the EOS DeFi ecosystem, grow the amount of total value locked in EOS DeFi, and increase opportunities for everyone to earn yield with EOS!
Yield+ is a community initiative designed to increase opportunities for dApp developers to be rewarded and users to grow wealth on EOS. The Yield+ working group designed & proposed an elegant system of economic incentives to attract liquidity with an on-chain Liquidity Rewards Program that directly measures and rewards increased economic activity on EOS, based on TVL (Total Volume Locked).
The beautifully designed & thoroughly researched Blue Paper features 69 pages of insightful information from many of the most talented builders in DeFi, including EOS Nation, 0rigin, DefiBox, Greymass, Pizza DeFi, EOS Asia, and Joe Louis. The table of contents outlines thoughtful plans to create ever deeper liquidity on EOS, with introductions to the teams, general explanations about DeFi, research about comparable liquidity incentive programs, data modeling & risk analysis, treasury governance & funding, oracles, and deliverables. In addition to the forthcoming Blue Paper, the deliverables of Yield+ include a sleek Yield+ portal with many helpful details for builders & investors, on-chain incentive program contracts, oracles to monitor each dApp’s “true” TVL, and recurrent data analysis for assessing & reporting outcomes to the EOS community.
The Yield+ Blue Paper is carefully constructed with the best insights from all around the blockchain industry to bring more DeFi activity and yield opportunities to EOS. In addition to the Blue Paper, you can also learn more about Yield+ in many great short videos from Denis Carriere, CTO of EOS Nation, on the Everything EOS clips playlist and last week’s Yield+ preview.
Upon launch of the incentive mechanism, developers will be able to apply to participate in the Yield+ program and approved projects will be eligible to claim daily EOS rewards according to tiers of TVL. The Yield+ initiative will be rolled out in stages, offering more rewards and support for a wider range of assets as time goes on. The Yield+ Portal & Smart Contracts development is already funded & underway to ensure that Yield+ will be ready before the launch of Trust EVM, the most performant EVM in the world.
Introduction to Subjective Billing
We released an Introduction to Subjective Billing and Lost Transactions, the first technical article in a new series that will help solve issues to make EOS even more performant and explain helpful new features in Mandel.
This well-written article explores the subjective billing feature, why it exists, and issues with subjective billing identified by ENF-sponsored working groups during research for the Blue Papers. Subjective billing is a feature in EOSIO that lets nodes bill account resources locally in their own node without sharing the billing with the rest of the network. Since its introduction in 2019, subjective billing has reduced node CPU use by almost 90%, but it also sometimes results in persistently failing transactions or lost transactions. This article includes a quick reference for preventing these issues and we will explore additional solutions & new features enabled by the Mandel Consensus Upgrade in future articles throughout the API+ Working Group Education Series.
In addition to solutions to increase the performance of EOS, the article also provides an excellent overview of the lifecycle of an EOSIO transaction, which can be fascinating for all to explore and provides very helpful information for dApp developers & infrastructure providers. The article was written by Andrew Ware, an excellent technical writer who is also the founder of a record label and EOS-based music encyclopedia dApp Polaris, which you can learn more about in his recent interviews with Helios and GenerEOS. Andrew was assisted by Matthew Darwin, co-author of the API+ Blue Paper, and Kevin Heifner, a senior EOSIO pioneer who recently joined our engineering team. In the coming weeks, we will share more detailed and eloquently written articles from experts to help make EOS more performant, reliable, and enjoyable for all.
Pomelo Season 2 Fund Distribution
Pomelo Season 2 is complete and public good grant creators can now claim their Pomelo matching funds!
The Pomelo team released a new blog post to summarize the second season of Pomelo and provide instructions for public good grant owners to claim their matching funds. Pomelo Season 2 was a huge success, with 1.2 million dollars distributed to public goods on EOS, almost 2,000 unique donors, and 140 approved grants building public goods for the EOS ecosystem. In addition to $888,888.88 that we contributed to the Pomelo matching pool, Pomelo also raised an additional five thousand EOS from Pomelo NFT sales, over three thousand EOS from contribution fees, and the EOS Community donated approximately $150k to public goods on EOS.
On top of all these funding sources, we also contributed an additional $125k in direct grant contributions to help recognize the incredible work of dozens of teams building helpful public goods on EOS. We decided the recipients of these direct grant contributions by equally distributing the additional capital across multiple team members who analyzed every proposal then independently allocated their individual amounts to the grants they chose to support. Pomelo team members Stéphane Bisson & Daniel Keyes shared an overview of Season 2 and ENF Core team members Yves La Rose, Zack Gall, & Brandon Lovejoy shared many details about how we decided to allocate direct grant contributions during this week’s EOS Fireside Chat.
In addition to the newest blog post and Fireside Chat, you can also learn much more about Pomelo Season 2 from last week’s comprehensive Matching Pool Distribution Analysis. This rigorously detailed report includes many interesting graphics to help everyone understand the distributions of matching pool funds, such as pie charts of fund distribution by category, geographical location, and project. The report also features the top projects that received the most funding during Season 2, a spreadsheet with raw data for all contributions, graph overview of donations between all contributors, and many details about fund distribution to help ensure that the EOSIO ecosystem benefits as much as possible in future Pomelo seasons.
Combined with the huge success of Pomelo Season 1, almost 2 million dollars has now been distributed to foster the development of 218 public goods projects on EOS. Perhaps even more importantly than funding, these first two seasons of Pomelo have provided the EOS community with profoundly helpful opportunities to build relationships, community, and reputation for future development. Pomelo Season 2 showed tremendous progress and we look forward to continued growth during the next seasons in the coming months. With the early successes of quadratic funding on EOS and the immense long-term potential of Pomelo, the EOS Community is now more empowered than ever to create public goods, grow EOS, and benefit all of humanity!

EOSIO Coalition Report
We released the third EOSIO Coalition Report to summarize the exciting progress of the EOSIO Coalition, which is leading the development of EOSIO. After forming the EOSIO Coalition a couple months ago, leaders from the initial four founding blockchains pledged an $8 million annual budget and funded a multisig treasury account on EOS with $2m USDT. You can learn much more about the Coalition’s early progress in the first and second EOSIO Coalition Reports.
In the newest report, we provide updates about the EOSIO Coalition’s top 22 priority items, requests for proposals (RFPs), and EOSIO rebranding. First, we shared the top priority items that the Coalition has identified to make the EOSIO core software ever more performant and helpful for all. Most of these priority items were described in detail in the four Blue Papers funded by the ENF: Core+, Wallet+, API+, and Audit+, which have generated more than eighty proposals to enhance the EOSIO codebase. Five of the items below will also be detailed in the upcoming Scalability+ Blue Paper.
After identifying the top priorities, the Coalition will create RFPs (requests for proposal) where developers can bid on project contracts to improve EOSIO in an open market environment and compete to deliver the best improvements possible. The first two RFPs were officially published this week for Faster Finality to increase transaction speed and Wallet SDK’s to improve network usability. These detailed RFPs help foster a thriving decentralized ecosystem where many development teams contribute with their unique competencies and many more RFPs will be published soon. The 0rigin team announced that they will submit a bid for the faster finality RFP and Aaron Cox, co-founder of Greymass, said on the recent EOS Fireside Chat that the Greymass team will most likely submit a bid to enhance Wallet SDKs.
Lastly, the report provides an exciting update about the upcoming rebrand of EOSIO. Leaders of EOS, Telos, and Greymass have been working with a brand agency to rebrand the EOSIO core protocol with funding from the ENF and the new brand will be announced in the coming weeks. You can learn more about the upcoming rebrand in a discussion with Yves La Rose and Stéphane Bisson during last week’s EOS Fireside Chat. The Coalition is now deliberating options and choosing the best brand to rally the EOSIO community & herald a new beginning for community driven development!
