EOS DETROIT recently signed up an additional colocation data center to diversify its backbone network connections and provide a higher level of redundancy to our nodes. In the last month, the company acquired $15,000 of additional hardware to upgrade the services on blockchains EOSD supports. These two improvements will enable EOSD to provide a high performing AtomicAsset API.

It’s no secret that NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) are in the spotlight right now. With digital art, collectibles, and gaming assets trading for thousands if not millions of dollars, their impact is front and center. While the majority of media coverage has been on the volume or prices that these assets are trading for, a new more troubling narrative has started to emerge.

Many news feeds have seen an upward trend in stories about the “green” impact of NFTs. These stories take a pointedly myopic view at a complex and multifaceted issue in this growing blockchain space.

The majority of…

Last year a new resource model was proposed by Block.one in order to address issues of network utilization efficiency on EOSIO networks. The issue boils down to this: the existing model reflects a right to network resources (CPU and NET) proportional to the amount of staked core tokens one has, leading to network inefficiencies in the allocation of resources in situations where a token holder is staking and not leveraging their granted resources.

This is problematic as it means that token holders that aren’t leveraging their tokens as a utility continuously are reducing the efficiency of the network for those…


Nodesuite is a set of Ansible playbooks used by EOS Detroit internally for managing EOSIO nodes and services. The team decided it would benefit the EOSIO ecosystem more if our daily efforts, which are subsidized by EOSIO networks at large, could be leveraged by developers and operators looking to set up their own EOSIO infrastructure. To that end, today Nodesuite will be available publicly for the first time in a soft launch. There is still a lot of work to be done in order to incorporate all of the innovation across EOSIO into a one-stop tool that is easy to…
