Our values

franceos team members are proud to be the first applicants representing France on the delegates list. All share the same vision of decentralized value exchange systems, through the following fundamental principles:

  • Our right of private ownership ;
  • Our right to contract on the basis of free consent ;
  • Our right of free enterprise.

Our values are transparency, independence and integrity, serving EOS platform for common good and building a sustainable community.

Our vision

EOS is the most ambitious project ever developed in cryptoeconomics universe; we are convinced EOS will become the platform of choice to host and deploy decentralized applications.

EOS consensus mechanism (delegated proof of stake) is the most elegant and suitable solution to maintain a scalable and solid network while remaining decentralized.

We therefore propose our application to become a block producer. Our values are independence, security, democratization of EOS platform french-speaking, and building a sustainable community.

Why vote for franceos?

Many applicants have high quality technical infrastructure, but members of EOS community should bear in mind that maximum decentralisation of block production is a very important criterion to ensure an essential property of a blockchain: censorship resistance. It therefore seems necessary for us to represent France, and more broadly, French-speaking world in this competition, to become a producer of EOS blocks.

We are convinced that it is necessary to have a very varied geographical distribution to ensure this property. This will reduce risk of collusion. Similarly, by electing a block producer located in your country and adopting a roadmap that matches your expectations, you will be able to take advantage of greater proximity, and benefit from its resources, to assist you in decentralized applications development on EOS.

Members of franceos team are well established in French cryptoeconomic ecosystem. In addition to our daily involvement in the sector, through BitConseil since 2014, Journal du Coin and ADAPP since 2017, our existing structures allow us to reach French-speaking EOS users in particular. Communication will be regular, and we will rely on experience gained at Journalducoin.com to be seamlessly responsive to EOS announcements and developments. Beginners will benefit from constant support, an activity close to Bitconseil.fr’s heart since its inception : we will make many resources available to users, to understand EOS and develop decentralized applications.

Technical part : development and  of infrastructure is coordinated by professionals, with solid experience in development and maintenance of blockchain nodes, as well as in IT security.

By voting for franceos, you give life to a strong community, defending general interest on EOS.

Our mission

Operate

As a block producer, we are committed to develop a robust and secure infrastructure, to ensure the best operation of EOS network, with high level of availability for critical operations and DApps. Security and transparency are at the heart of our concerns.

Securing

At the heart of our concerns, security is the reason why franceos undertakes to have its infrastructures and services audited regularly by independent third parties (PCI-DSS and SOC), as well as to set up security challenges (bug bounties).

Develop

Developers' tools and interfaces for EOS network users. Creation of decentralized applications, more particularly oracles to act as an interface with external data, a reliable connector between Web APIs and future DApps.

Communicate, educate

Through our media activities, we will cover EOS news and produce educational content for beginners, aimed at the Francophone community.
