Who are we?
GenerEOS is a social enterprise block producer candidate whose purpose is to promote and support scalable and extremely reliable block production whilst giving back block rewards to charities.
Re-engineer the way funds are distributed to charities, through the introduction of fully transparent smart contracts and DApps. This revolutionary way of bringing a community together as a co-operative is made possible by the EOS.IO platform. We strongly believe we are at the forefront of a new era of bringing decentralised technology into the mainstream.
Based out of Sydney, Australia
GenerEOS is founded by a team of like minded blockchain enthusiasts with diverse professional backgrounds and a passion to make a difference in the world by giving back.
Below diagram illustrates the infrastructure architecture that we at GenerEOS are working towards. We are using AWS and GCP cloud providers to set up our redundant fail-safe infrastructure. A load balancer connects our block producer infrastructure to the rest of the EOS block producer network. Additionally, cloud provider internal load balancers will provide failover within AWS and GCP respectively. A detailed solution is still in development and is being discussed with other BP candidates who are trying to solve the very same problem. Additionally to the producing nodes, we will provide an array of non-producing service nodes which are fully load-balanced across cloud providers and are used to serve EOS users such as DApps and Wallet implementations.
In Dan Larimer’s latest Medium post he proposes to start with a much smaller RAM configuration than most BP candidates were planning to provide. Dan proposes to start with as low as 32 GB of RAM to avoid buying up all available RAM at once by investors speculating on increasing RAM prices. This approach is supported by Team GenerEOS but needs to be discussed with and agreed on by the community of block producer candidates.

One fateful Christmas Eve, Santa brought Ralf a second-hand book about programming in BASIC. However he forgot to bring the accompanying PC, which was delivered a day later.

Ralf has been actively researching blockchain technologies and when he realised the game-changing potential of the EOS platform, he decided to focus all his energy on this one project.
