EOS Town Hall - March 18, 2019

Notes Created By: LibertyBlock


  • This week we took a hiatus from the governance debate and discussed full history solutions.

Key Takeaways

EOS Community Updates (0:20)

The cooperative voting structure was a main area of focus this week. Two initiatives were full history and backup block producer readiness.

Full History and Hyperion Overview (1:10)

In Greek mythology, Hyperion is the father of the goddess EOS and means “the one who watches from above.”

Hyperion is a two-layer solution: Hyperion History and Hyperion Analytics.

More About Hyperion (6:25)

EOS Rio is already providing History API using Hyperion at https://br.eosrio.io/v2/history. The project code and preliminary set up instructions are available at https://github.com/eosrio/Hyperion-History-API.

Is EOS at a Place Where Lawmakers Can Intervene? (22:22)

The early internet wasn’t at a place where lawmakers could intervene. Right now, there isn’t much of a discussion with lawmakers about people losing private keys and money, but that will change as the network grows.

Light History vs. Hyperion (13:36)

Hyperion takes three or four days to replay versus almost a week using Light History. Time and cost savings using Hyperion are significant, and there’s room to make it even more efficient.

Spinning Up a Full History Node in Less Than 24 Hours? (16:20)

Hyperion is still not fully optimized yet. After optimization, the next step is launching Hyperion Analytics, an advanced layer on Hyperion History API to offer detailed EOS statistics.
