Voting for EOS Block Producers
As an EOS token holder, you have an ownership stake in EOS. Voting for an EOS Block producer is like voting for who takes care of your property. Who you choose to take care of your property matters.
At the bottom of this page is a step-by-step guide to help you vote on your desktop, if you appreciate what we do for the EOS community, please consider voting for us as one of your 30 block producers.
Who is eosDAC?
eosDAC is the first and currently only Decentralized Block Producer which isn’t owned by a private entity. Instead, eosDAC’s membership token was airdropped to EOS holders just before mainnet was launched in June 2018 so that eosDAC would be owned by the EOS community.
eosDAC was started because we are passionate about the great things EOS can do to impact the world in a positive way. Since we care deeply about the success of EOS, we aim to be the best caretaker possible of EOS to help it grow. We want to see EOS and other EOSIO related blockchains become used by the masses, so in addition to our block production work, we reinvest our earnings in building and developing open source tools to build DACs.
DACs aren’t really that hard to understand, they’re essentially just digital organizations that use blockchain to do things that could never be done by traditional organizations. This is important because just like today’s apps are held by corporations and organizations, Dapps will need to be held by something, and it makes sense that Dapps be held by something digital and decentralized, which is exactly what a DAC offers over a traditional paper-based organization.
By bringing a way for DACs to easily be made on EOS, eosDAC thinks this will cause an explosion of new digital organizations that can massively benefit EOS and change the world. If you’d like to learn more about DAC’s, you can watch “What is a DAC?” video here.
eosDAC’s launch team has; been involved since the very first testnets were setup, played a major role in actually launching the EOS mainnet, provided technical and thought leadership in the EOS community, and found critical bugs that could’ve brought the network down that were able to be fixed in the EOSIO software before launch.

Congratulations, you’ve now made your voice heard by voting for EOS block producers!
One final thing!
To prevent block producers from benefiting from people who vote once and then don’t stay active, all votes decay at a half life of 50% per year. This means , you’ll need sign back in every once in awhile and click on “vote” again to refresh your votes. Nice thing is that your account remembers who you voted for last, so if you’re still happy with the same producers you just click the vote button and run it all through again.
We hope this guide was helpful for you!
Voting for good block producers helps protect your property.
