2018-04-16

who are we?

EOS WTZ is a community established in November 2017 with 8 core members and operation team of 25 people.

EOS WTZ is based on the WTZ Blockchain College and is committed to building the most temperature-friendly blockchain knowledge dissemination platform in China. By the ways of popularization of the basic blockchain knowledge, output of original contents, building the interactive community, and incubation of blockchain projects, we will estalish a community of blockchain which will affect millions of people in China.

Since its establishment in November 2017, EOS WTZ has gained high popularity on WeChat public account, Weibo, and many blockchain enthusiast forums. As of March 31, 2018, there have been more than 200,000 fans. Among them, the people who understand and support the college’s vision and volunteer to grow along with the college’s development have reached more than 10,000 and have gathered into a community-ready army that is full of spirit and vitality. In this army, there are many high-precision talents, such as digital cryptography, information technology, media communication, marketing planning, finance and consulting.The founder, WTZ, has generated unique contents based on his strong charisma, and bonded fans to form the block chain community. The chain community creatively uses virtual equity to incentivize community self-organization, decentralizes creation of new content and expands diversified business directions, such as blockchain knowledge output, self-made tutorials, and information transfer, creating a new blockchain industry ecosystem.

Our vision and mission

1. To provide the basic knowledge related with EOS, industry news and other comprehensive industry information through the self-media matrix, and to cultivate the most temperatureable EOS node community.

2. Utilize self-owned funds to assist EOS ecological construction, incubate DAPP project, sponsor technological exchanges and competitions among university students and technical personnel, and provide resources and nutrition for EOS ecological technologies and projects.

3.Establish a "world-class EOS ecosystem". We hope to provide EOS devotee with an open platform for learning and communication. By incubating multiple sub-community opinion leaders and sub-community clusters, EOS Ecology can grow and flourish throughout the country.

We will take advantage of the strength of the global star team, join hands with a quality advisor team, and on base of the existing fan group with an overwhelming advantage, invest 100% passion and huge resources to realize our vision and goals.

Location of company headquarters – Nanjing, China

EOS WTZ is based in Nanjing, a city with prominent place in the Chinese history and culture, and the capital of Jiangsu province. Located in the Yangtze River Delta region, Nanjing is in the eastern region of China, next to Shanghai and Zhejiang province. EOS WTZ’s main office is in Haixia Yungu Technology Park in the well developed Hexi district, the location where the 2014 Youth Olympic Games was held.

EOS WTZ also has a broadcast studio located in Beijing.

Technical Specifications

Before 3rd of June, in order to maintain the robustness and reliability of testnet server, we will use two cloud based servers in block producing.

Main Server

Intel Xeon E5-2696 v4 @ 2.20GHz
CPU:22 vCPU core
RAM:32GB
SSD:LOCAL PCIe 3.0
NETWORK:1000 Mbps
SSD:2048GB

Backup Server

Intel Xeon Platinum 8173M @ 2.00GHz
CPU:28 vCPU core
RAM:64GB
SSD:LOCAL PCIe 3.0
NETWORK:1000 Mbps
SSD:2048GB

Those two servers will be based on AWS servers in the US.

Scaling plan after June 3, 2018

After the 3rd of June, we will keep up with the rising demand of EOS, and cooperate with well-known blockchain solution providers to build bare metal server that is robust and highly scalable. The provisional hardware Specs:

Intel Xeon E7-8880 v4 @ 2.20GHz
CPU:22 vCPU core
RAM:32GB
SSD:LOCAL PCIe 3.0
NETWORK:1000 Mbps
SSD:2048GB

1)Failover

In circumstances when error occurs at nodes, the process will be switched to redundant nodes in order to maintain uninterrupted block production and to never miss a block.

2)Live Upgrade of Cluster

Upgrade to servers can be performed while the cluster is running live without affecting block producing process, as a result of multiple points redundancy used in our system. Machines that are upgraded will be thoroughly tested before being reconnected.

3)Elastic Load Management

The system supports high elasticity, as upgrades to the system that is used to deal with any potential demand surge, will not affect the operation of block producing.

4)Load Balacing

Load will be processed by the cluster load balancer before it is sent to processing nodes, which are dynamically assigned with weights, to maximize overall performance of the system.

Community Benefit Plan

We define ourselves as candidate from the community, by the community, for the community. EOS WTZ believes that, as a block producer, contributing to community benefit is a responsibility of same importance as block producing. Both WTZ Blockchain Academy and EOS WTZ are self-funded, which allow us to make decision only for community benefits.

EOS WTZ is Operated by WTZ Blockchain Academy, one of the top blockchain content producers in China. EOS WTZ has a strong community supporting team, with first hand information about concerns and demand of our community members. This is the very foundation of EOS WTZ, a block producer that comes from the community, and the reason why EOS WTZ will be successful with its community benefit projects, as listed below:

i. Support DApp development

The development of DApps is crucial to the ecosystem of EOS. EOS WTZ will support DApps developers by providing funds, technical supports, and seed users.

Fund: A token fund established by WTZ Blockchain Academy will provide funding to EOS DApps incubation, and after EOS WTZ is elected as block producer, EOS WTZ will dedicate a portion of its rewards to further help the incubation of EOS DApps.

Technical Supports: WTZ Blockchain Academy will provide free tuturials for entry-level DApps developers. EOS WTZ also has developers with strong technical skills that will work as counselor of DApps developers.

Seed Users: We will use our influence within community to help DApps gain seed users and help them make marketing strategy.

ii. Community Growing

WTZ Blockchain Academy has built a reputation of being an EOS supporter among its Chinese audience. With millions of views of its article, WTZ Blockchain Academy has helped EOS to be more well-known and more accepted in the Chinese blockchain community. As a block producer candidate, EOS WTZ will continue to have community growth as one of its main missions.

iii. Community Education

WTZ Blockchain Academy was founded with the idea of becoming the blockchain education hub. The experience of producing educational material gives EOS WTZ a strong background in community education. Our experience combined with our established channels will equip EOS community with considerable blockchain knowledge.

iv. Collaboration with university student organizations

EOS WTZ will establish collaborations with student organizations in universities. Student organizations can run their own nodes on EOS WTZ testnet, and EOS WTZ will provide assistance if needed.

EOS WTZ will also sponsor students to attend EOS related events such as EOS Hackathon, and provide funding to their events on campus, to help educate and attract more future EOS developers.

Node Information

To be well prepared for block producing as a node, we are glad to contribute to participating in Scholar testnet launch by EOS Nation (our node name: eos_wtz), and we also built our own public testnet. For any BP candidate, EOS fans group who would like to join our testnet, you will be much appreciated and welcomed.
