What to do if you are unregistered EOS Token holder

Rohan AbrahamJun 19th 2018

What are unregistered EOS Tokens?

Registration or "Mapping" was the process to move your ERC-20 tokens from your ethereum wallet to the EOS Mainnet when it launches. A tiny fraction of the Supply balance 0.3% to be exact did not complete registration, nor did they have fallback applied to them. All of the unregistered tokens, have moved over to the mainnet. There is however no account created for these wallets and there is no associated EOS Key. The tokens affected by this are only a small fraction of the 1 billion EOS token supply but we are still committed to help these users access their tokens.

How do I confirm that my tokens are unregistered?

Go to https://eosauthority.com and enter your ETH address. If you get shown a page like this.

These are unregistered EOS Token holder page

If the message says: Sorry, we could not find your address on the mainnet snapshot. It means that you are one of the few wallets that are on the unregistered list.

What has been done so far?

EOS Authority generated the final snapshot files which are now being used in the EOS Mainnet chain. All of the unregistered wallets and their account balances are listed on the snapshot_unregistered.csv file. This should reflect what you see on our website. Your account balance is safe and on the Mainnet. It is just not accessible by anyone as they don't have EOS Keys associated with them.

What should I do?

The Block Producers are discussing this on every meeting since 21st June.

There is now a solution that works in early testing. We will need the larger BP community to review codes and then we can agree on next steps.

Very productive Block Producer conference call today. It feels like we might have a solution unregistered token holders can use in 3 weeks.

We had a meeting in-person with Block Producers in Seoul. During the meeting EOS Authority presented the solution which includes system contract from EOS Argentina. Our next step is to get consensus from the top 21 Block Producers to load this contract into the EOS Mainnet.

We have an end to end solution working in the test environment for the first time. This solution simulated real world scenario of an user providing Ethereum signature on the browser with Metamask and then submitting it to the test EOS network. This solution was fully secured and requires zero trust as the signed message from the user browser is verified by the smart contract and cannot be tampered with on transit. We submitted the code to EOS Argentina (Block Producer) to review the code changes to their original idea. Once it’s peer reviewed by their talented team and proven to work within 250ms max transaction time, it will be opened to wider BP community for approval into EOS chain.

Today, the end to end solution developed by EOS Argentina and us (EOS Authority) was published to a TestNet (CryptoKylin). The TestNet is a clone of the real EOS Mainnet with its own Block Producers and is a real world test of transaction times. If things go well, the next step is to open the solution to the public on the EOS Mainnet. As usual the page will be constantly updated.
As of Sep 13th 2018- Tests complete, wait for BP approval!
This morning, we managed to complete our end to end tests with EOS Argentina on the CryptoKylin test net. We were able to create a web interface that an actual user would submit an account name and EOS public key. This submission will also be cryptographically signed with the Ethereum Private key to both prove ownership and make it tamper proof. This completes our tests as we were able to create EOS accounts from this user submission. The next step is to formally present this solution to the other Block Producers to accept the smart contract into the EOS Mainnet. We feel we are much closer now. Keep a close eye on this page.

We will update this web page with further instructions as soon as we agree with the other Block Producers on a course of action. As the network has just launched, there are also other pressing issues that have come up that requires attention of the BPs.
