When will EOS Gems go live?  

Q3 of 2018.

How does one join emlg, ie apply for producer candidacy? 

Everyone can become a BP, just prepare an economic model and an introduction on Steemit then apply in the EOS Go BP portal.

How many BPs can I vote for? 

You can vote up to 30 BPs, each voted BP will have the value of the EOS token.

What is Scatter? 

Scatter is an EOS Wallet.

Are EOS Tokens staked by default upon chain launch? 

Yes.  You can unstake after launch when 15% of tokens have voted.  It was staked so you can participate in voting.

We vote for the 21bp, the coin has to be frozen for a while, but the vote is always on, so does that mean if I want to vote all the time, my coin is actually frozen forever?  (regarding that if I don’t vote, the weight of my vote will be decreased, so the best choice for me is to vote all the time.  But no one wants to be frozen all the time.) 

Correct.  The token needs to be staked to vote.  You can always unstake when you don’t want to vote anymore.

How do you register a new account?  

Scatter is a EOS wallet, so when you create a new wallet over there you’re getting a EOS account.

How can I check the EOS balance on the mainnet? 

You can check with

Can we withdraw EOS from Binance to vote now?  

No, the chain needs to be active first.

Can I vote if my EOS is now stored in Kraken? 

Unfortunately, you can’t vote with your tokens in Kraken, you will have to wait for the mainnet to be activated then you can withdraw and vote.

What is the minimum amount to stake? 

It depends on how much you want to use cpu and ram.  To start with, you can stake .001 EOS.  These can be changed later.

Will the toolkit remain a web app or is there somewhere down the roadmap for a standalone destop app? 

At the moment EOS Asia is planning to finish the Web version, first, maybe in the future, we will consider a desktop version.  Web version is more easy to access.  There are no security problems to be considered as we only use secondary access from apps like scatter or in the future the ledger nano s and we will never ask things like private keys like MEW does, this way it protects you from phishing & malicious portals.
