Our Block Producer Constitution (draft 5.28)
These are our values, our mission and our code of conduct. Together they are our principles and our pledge to the EOS community.
Freedom of speech and expression
Transparency and Accountability
Integrity and Independence
Our mission is to serve the EOS community by producing blocks reliably, efficiently, and with the highest standard of integrity.
CODE OF CONDUCT
To accomplish our mission, we commit to the following:
1) Integrity and Honour
Honour and reputation is the integral value in our organization.
We will always act with honesty, integrity and apply the highest ethical standards in all aspects of our conduct.
We will abide by all aspects of the EOS constitution and exceeding those where applicable.
We will not pay voters for support.
We pledge to execute all valid arbiter rulings and voter referendums. We will not publish opinions on active arbitration.
EOS-CSX and our team will always act in open transparency. We will be open about successes as well as mistakes.
We commit to publicly disclose our team, ownership, and finances on a continuous basis. Full transparency with public disclosures will be honored for all tools, dashboards, wallets, voting portals, forums, and any other projects and dApps we develop for the community.
We will back a Block Producer bond.
We support regular audits for block producers to verify governance, operations, technology and financial claims made by Block Producers.
We will maintain full political, operational and financial independence at all times. We will not have any ownership in any other Block Producers.
5) Community Driven
Community Supported Exchange is a dynamic partnership between the EOS Community and CSX. We are reliant on each other to reach consensus in order for mutual success.
We vow to listen and learn from our Community and strive to grow to the full potential of our partnership.
We will create value for the EOS community by investing in educate and promotion. We will develop tools and decentralized applications (Dapps) that engage participation and adoption, plus fund proposed projects that improve and benefit the EOS ecosystem.
7) Stable and Secure
We are the stewards and guardians of the ecosystem from undue harm. We aim for optimum stability, reliability and security.
8) High Network Performance
We commit to invest in network and operations infrastructure to enable the EOS network to perform at the highest level and scale effectively.
9) Trusted Team
We will keep the core team small and trusted to increase our resilience to threats from internal and external theft and corruption.
10) Reasonable Inflation Rate
The inflation bids will be set in such a way that a robust and performant Block Producer solution can be provided.
11) Co-operation Never Collusion
We will treat all DApps impartially. We will show no favoritism to any DApp or other group running software on EOS. This includes things like prioritizing one DApp’s transactions over another’s when producing blocks, providing bandwidth (staking tokens) for a specific DApp, or providing proprietary infrastructure for them to run or test on.
We will cooperate with Block Producers. We will share the responsibility of being the custodians of the EOS network who ensure the good of the network, and the good of EOS holders, above all.
We will inform community members through all viable communication channels before formal adoption of any amendments to our Code of Conduct.
