When I check for the name with my ethereum public key it shows up properly. When I use my EOS public key it says it can't find it. When I check my ETH public key on https://eosauthority.com/ it shows I have it registered properly to the same EOS public key I checked the name on.
I assume checking by EOS address is not working for the name check on https://eosauthority.com/account?
Dan doesn't insult Vitalik. You should remove that part. The rest is good.
1) I’ve asked this numerous times with no response. The silence scares me. I’ll go on a hunt and report back.
2) I used Exodus to register mainly because I haven’t had time to dig deep and I’m afraid I’ll mess something up. I’m assuming Exodus plains to add EOS mainnet after the launch but worst case I’ll export private keys afteards for use in another wallet. Hope this works out :-|
Theres silence cause it's been answered 10000 times
Are you sure? I still can’t find anything that satisfies me. Quick google search and checking sticky still only answers how to register/why I should register. I know the answer of why you should register your address has been given thousands of times, but I still struggle to find a technical explanation of how the registration will be used behind the scenes and/or why they choose to have registration (snapshots happen all the time with no registration). That is how I interpreted OPs question and the question I’ve been asking.
You can do it without registering but it's a smoother transition if you do it that way for reasons Dan can explain to you.
Just fyi, the price you pay for not having gas is increased levels of inflation. You don't have to pay for it directly, but it's not exactly "free" either. Something to note.
It's technically free with ram trading fee's canceling out 2% of the inflation so if the rate is adjusted to 2%, it's supposedly free.
What is the TOTAL volume on all exchanges compared to Bitcoin? That is a relevant question and I have the answer. BTC is 5x higher. Still quite impressive though considered EOS mainnet does not exist yet.
All i'm saying is that it's impressive, not trying to inflate or exaggerate it's value.
What's the point in issuing all these ERC20 airdrops instead of just waiting for the EOS snapshot / main chain to be determined and then airdropping directly on EOS? Seems redundant.
I don't think they are. I think OP is wrong, it's not airdropped till 2019 so it'll have to be mainnet tokens.
Lab Ledger is currently under development and will be built on EOS. Once the platform goes live on June 21st, 2019, all ERC20 LAB tokens will be converted to EOS LAB tokens at a ratio of 1:1.
Is that 2019 date correct? Or is it suppose to be 2018.
Not sure but I assume it's correct. There's likely going to be more than one airdrop like this though where development plans take potentially years just depending on how fast they work how big their team is and some project just take longer to create by the nature of them. It's not a bad thing it's just how it is.
I see what you did there. I'll have to look into VPN's this weekend and see what will work best.
you don't need to get it off the official website and airdrops aren't region specific, you'll receive the airdrops no matter where you live as long as your EOS is in a private wallet, not on an exchange that may or may not support the airdrops
What's the point in EOS Evolution anyway? I've not heard anything about them apart there doing an Airdrop.
Evolution is run by 2-3 guys last time I checked. On the other hand everyone wants to be part of EOS main chain (block.one VC funds are only for that chain) so I doubt EVO will have success. Keep in mind you need to have relatively high token price to pay for BPs. Do you want to be BP or standby BP on main chain or some forked one. Math is simple.
I think some BP's who don't get elected to the EOS main chain for active or even reserve BP spots may try to get elected to EVO's BP election.
There were similar questions in the past and if I remember correctly the consens was not to use this "third party tool"... Why should you use it? Use the official one, on the official EOS website.
Not sure if US citizens can use the official EOS website tool.
They.. want to put all your emails on the blockchain?
You can privatize it with ZK snarks maybe? It being on the blockchain makes it unhackable. I know Dan said in the Virginia Tech speech that privacy protocols will be implemented for Dapps that require it.
So it's like community cost sharing health care?
So is it like a DAC where stakeholders make decisions on how to operate this?
The answer to your question at the end is that the process of creating your own chain is rather time consuming and expensive. You would have to get your own community to become BP's and do a year long distribution process like EOS to ensure fair distribution. It's just much easier, simple, and cost effective to use EOS.
So it doesn't matter that I don't see my EOS address in the etherscan link in the OP?
I don't know actually i'm trying to find out now cause my address isnt on any of the 17 pages either.
