Purpose

HKEOS is a Block Producer (BP) committed to transparency, security protection, and gross community happiness (GCH). A detailed description of our Principles and Code of Conduct can be found here.

As part of our compliance responsibility to the EOS Constitution and Block Producer Agreement (also included beneath), we are disclosing the Ownership and Corporate Structure of HKEOS to the EOS voting public and humbly ask for your consideration. We encourage the community to contact us directly with any suggestions for improvement, feedback or questions.

We want to thank and acknowledge EOS New York for their BP stewardship and providing a disclosure example (found here) and all the other equally impressive BPs who continue to inspire us (EOS Sw/eden, eosDAC, EOS Rio, Sheos, EOS42, EOS Tribe, Blockmatrix, Libertyblock, EOS Cannon).

Disclosuers

HKEOS is Malta private limited company formed and self-funded by an international team united by a common interest in EOSIO as a global platform for radical social change. Malta, the “Blockchain island”, was chosen because of its reputation among crypto legal experts as the leading jurisdiction for blockchain companies. HKEOS will continue to seek the legal entity jurisdiction and business structure that provides the most security protection for a Block Producer from regulatory risk, local laws, and other potential threats.

We are committed to using our BP reward earnings to support and accelerate impactful EOS DAPPs to maximize our contribution to the EOS community. We will continue to develop open source tools and infrastructure solutions that ensure a secure stable EOS chain in collaboration with talented BPs and EOS developers. Read more about HKEOS community projects here (and vote for which ones we should prioritize).

HKEOS has a hybrid infrastructure with nodes in Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and in works to deploy BP nodes in Bhutan. Learn more about the advantages of HKEOS Bhutan hosted nodes here (Physical Security, Environmental Sustainability and Governance based on Gross Happiness).
