Timeline - EOS Launch Tracker

01 - Snapshot (DONE)

2 Jun 2018 21:59 UTC - After the 23 hour freeze of the ERC-20 tokens, the different BP teams can now start the launch process. The first step is to retrieve a full snapshot of all balances and all registration keys.

3 Jun 2018 00:35 UTC - After 2.5 hours the first ever final snapshot files are published by EOS Authority.

3 Jun 2018 02:58 UTC - Initial snapshot recreated by 2 other BPs.

3 Jun 2018 09:35 UTC - Consensus reached to use the snapshot file as generated for launch by the EOS Mainnet Launch Group (EMLG) and third parties.

Phase 01: Completed in 7.5 hours
3 Jun 2018 09:35 UTC

02 - BOOT (DONE)

The Community including Block Producer candidates, will verify the contents of the chain, voice any concern, work out solutions and finally validate the chain.

Questions:
- Was the snapshot imported correctly?
- Are all the balances and EOS public keys correct?
- Were the unregistered balances loaded for future use?
- Are the Ricardian contracts in place?
- Are the system contracts loaded without any alterations?
- Are we running on the correct version of the codebase?
- Is the all powerful eosio used for loading removed?

Phase 02: Completed with two candidate chains
4 Jun 2018 11:35 UTC

03 - Test (Done)

Two major tests are being carried out: Security Testing and Software Testing. EMLG and third parties will need some time to verify that the software performs well. This stage will continue for 48-hours and repeat in the event that a major bug is found.

Some security items, all patched & being verified.

7 Jun 2018 01:00 UTC - Unanimous no-go for launch
8 Jun 2018 13:00 UTC - Security & Testing, no blockers - Great!
8 Jun 2018 01:00 UTC - No-go for launch
9 Jun 2018 01:00 UTC - That's a GO for launch!

Phase 03: Completed with a GO for launch
9 Jun 2018 01:48 UTC

04 - Enable (Done)

The Block Producer community will release a joint statement once it's safe to vote. Please wait for the community to make an announcement. Voting can begin only after chain is enabled.

For an EOSIO chain to be considered enabled, the chain has to be accessible to the public via open end points. The length of this phase will depend on how quickly all the block producers are securely meshed together and how quickly they validate the chain (a quick repeat of the BOOT process and the testing phase).

9 Jun 2018 13:00 UTC - BPs now getting blocks - Meshing
10 Jun 2018 13:00 UTC- Transactions switched on.

Phase 04: Mainnet now open
10 Jun 2018 13:00 UTC

05 - Activation (Done)

Once 15% of tokens are staked and used to vote, the chain is considered valid and normal functions are activated. The length of this phase will be as long as it takes for the token-holder community to act. All Appointed Block Producers (ABPs) will be immediately replaced by the Elected Block Producers (BPs) that have been voted in by the community upon activation.

Once the chain is activated, the token holders will be able to unstake their EOS balances and start sending their own transactions to the eosio blockchain. The transactions can be all kinds of transactions from payments, RAM trading, working with Dapps, also expect Airdrops to start, etc.

Phase 05: Crossed 150 million!
14 Jun 2018 17:41 UTC

06 - The future (Ongoing)

Finally, the moment we have all been working for. After nearly a year long development process and community involvement, we have lift-off! The ideas on a whitepaper are brought to life thanks to all the contribution by a large community of well-wishers!

Together we present EOS, a crypto-economic solution for securing life, liberty, property, and justice for all. Along with other crypto platforms we move toward the same end goal: minimizing corruption and maximizing freedom in society.

"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members."
