EOS Block Producers Reach ‘Strongest Consensus’ In Approval Of Worker Proposal


The EOS Worker Proposal, which is famous for being very controversial, was announced by the most important EOS block producers that it went into its first execution stage and is supported by many participants to the network.

One of the leading EOS block producers, EOS Nation, reported that many Eosians agreed to support the new proposal and nothing could have changed their mind. On March 24, it also announced that a number of 34 both active and standby producers approved the EOS Worker proposal. It seems that until now, this is the strongest consensus achieved by any proposal in the EOS Mainnet.

The Eosio.wps System Launched

The March 24 first multi-signature approval launched the eosio.wps account that stores funds needed for new operations on the system. After this approval and the MSIG execution, eosio.wps will receive 50,000 EOS tokens in transfers from eosio.names, while the 3rd MSIG is going to deploy the Worker proposal smart contract to the same account, namely eosio.wps. After the 4th approval, the new proposal will have the whole network’s voting system reconsidered.

A Proposal Surrounded by Controversy

According to the new scheme and outlines, anyone can make a proposal on how the EOS blockchain should work, in exchange for a small EOS fee. After that, the block producers, regardless if they’re active or standby, need to vote on the proposal with +1, -1, or 0. In order to pass, a proposal has to gather 20 points. Here’s what the co-founder and CEO at Block.one, Brendan Blumer, had to say about the strategy employed by EOS:

“Socially authorising the BP’s to direct token-holder funds into projects without a clear or measurable return of value is risky, and may open the door to corruption and external scrutiny.”

Many voices don’t agree with him, but it remains to be seen how things are going to work for the EOS Worker Proposal in the future.
