Vision

Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.

C.S. Lewis

Welcome to Aloha EOS! We are committed to the EOS platform that enables the development of commercial-scale decentralized applications. We promote the community tenets of integrity, transparency, benefit to the community, and the overall success of EOS. Our unique geographic location helps to diversify the EOS block production network as we help bridge the East and West.

At Aloha EOS, we aim to have among the highest level of security and performance as a block producer. Additionally, we will strive to maximize stability and uptime. Finally, we intend to provide measurable value back to the community – both for the Hawaii populace and the EOS community at large.

Team

Nate is a long time entrepreneur with both a broad and deep technical background. He brings over 20 years of experience in development and systems engineering, with a focus on scalability and security. As an entrepreneur he founded or cofounded numerous companies and has the experience to wear many different hats. He has also been a cryptocurrency and blockchain enthusiast since early 2010.

Joe focuses primarily on development of enterprise applications. With 20 years of time spent at a Fortune 3 technology company as an engineer, he has a deep understanding of usable UI concepts and design patterns combined with strong development skills on both mobile and web platforms. To that end, Joe will bring his skillset to bear on the development of dApps for EOS. In prior positions, Joe ran a software development company and was the director of information technology at another.

Patrick has 23 years experience and proven success working in diverse environments within both private and public sectors of information technology. He is experienced in managing IT services across multiple facilities and has developed efficient and reliable technology infrastructures with scalable solutions to allow businesses to meet current and future needs. All of this puts Patrick in a prime position to leverage his experience to build and maintain a highly performant, stable, and secure EOS infrastructure.

Performance

The EOS platform depends on low latency and high throughput for the best possible dApp experience. We focus on this by benchmarking and deploying top performing hardware to minimize latency and maximize throughput. We also continuously monitor and trend our performance to identify potential bottlenecks and increase capacity before it happens.

Security

We believe block producer security is critical to the success of the EOS platform. We have a deep understanding of security, and we apply best practices when it comes to prevention, detection, and risk mitigation. Additionally, we plan to rely on third parties for regular audits, and we will publish those results publicly.

Reliability

It is the job of block producers to maintain a reliable EOS network that users and dApps can depend on. We strive for highly available fault-tolerant systems in order to withstand outages and maximize uptime. Also, updates and changes to our system go through a stringent management process to ensure they are adequately reviewed and tested before being deployed.

Charity

For the first 60 days of operation, Aloha EOS will be donating 5% of all post-expense operating profits to the Hawaii Life Charitable Fund, which will serve disaster-stricken islanders (such as those affected by the recent volcanic activity of Kilauea).

Additionally, on an ongoing basis, Aloha EOS will be donating 10% of all post-expense operating profits to needy non-profit organizations. For example, the Hawaii Foodbank which serves one in five islanders, or a more broad charity such as B Strong Disaster Relief.

Community Support

We plan on investing a portion of the revenue to fund our own EOS decentralized app (dApp) development, as well as community education and advocacy that will promote EOS and assist the community at large. We will do this as transparently as possible and will announce our projects on our site.

The success in EOS is when the community benefits, not the individual. Doing these activities will increase the value of the EOS ecosystem, which will create a self-sustaining uplift for the EOS community as a whole.
