EOS Asia Briding not only the Technical Gap but the Cultural Gap
EOS Asia is looking to bridge the technical gap but also are about bridging the cultural gap. This is going to be very important for the EOS ecosystem moving forward. For example, we were asked multiple times in the community about why the EOS voting system uses the approval voting of 30 candidates and not 1 vote per token. Being in Asia for a while I could see how universal suffrage is not a very commonly understood idea in some of the Asian communities. Therefore you can actually imagine how foreign the idea of approval voting of 30 candidates. These are the some of the cultural gaps be want to bridge in the EOS community.
What are the pros and cons of approval voting versus 1 vote per token? The EOS community needs to understand the fully before they vote. Things such as why bribing is bad and how it affects the ecosystem as a whole. We will educate them with detailed cases as well as our own opinions.
We need to educate token holders that when they vote, they are choosing the Block Producers to run the EOS platform. They are the investors of the EOS platform and not any the investors of any particular Block Producer. They can’t always just go for the big name but rather how much these BPs will spend improving the community. If they chose a node that wouldn’t be able to perform the necessary technical operations, the service will fail and thus people will lose confidence in the system. The community as a whole will get hurt and the investment will not be successful.
