It’s happening! Eden is the first project to receive a grant from the EOS Foundation and will host its first official election on October 9th.
The EOS Foundation will fund Eden with 200,000 EOS plus an additional 200 EOS added to the treasury for every member onboarded prior to the election.
“Following through on our mission of enabling developers, businesses, and individuals to build on and create value for EOS, the EOS Foundation and its advisory board selected Eden as a funding candidate to serve as an early showcase for how network funds can be distributed to empower a wide range of value creators within the EOS community.” — Yves La Rose, EOS Foundation
The EOS Foundation has also approved a separate grant of 100,000 EOS to Clarionos for their work on Eden On EOS, the EOS smart-contract-driven interface for facilitating fractal elections and distributing funds to delegates.
Eden members that sign up for the election can already see a brand-new interface.
Supported features will be:
- opt-in to participate in the next upcoming election;
- during an election, see their current round group participants;
- get auto-generated Zoom meeting links for the current round;
- vote on-chain;
- see election results;
- upload election videos;
- see elected delegate budgets (distributed monthly);
- withdraw delegate budgets when available;

The Clarionos team also confirmed that they will continue to build tools for the EOS community and support other builders on EOS.
Join the Eden on EOS Info Channel to learn how to become an Eden member. Besides the shot at some funding for your EOS pursuits, Eden members have access to a welcoming community of some of the most experienced entrepreneurs and enthusiasts in the ecosystem. It’s a great opportunity to get a new project off the ground, or just experience some great conversation.
Speaking of a new project getting off the ground within the Eden membership, the EOS Bees are keeping busy, laying the groundwork for their grassroots marketing approach to promote EOS.
In an effort to extend their reach to different language groups, the EOS Bees have introduced an additional tier to their fundamental structure: The Hive and Princess Bees.
Each Hive represents a language group and is organized by the Princess Bee, which then reports back to the Queen Bee, Jesse Jaffe, the mastermind behind the EOS Bees.
This update highlights the fractal structure and allows individual EOS Bee swarms to act more dynamic and independent, while catering to the specific needs and customs within their cultural realm.
Two Princess Bees have been nominated already. Congratulations to Sangyong, leading the Korean Hive, and Drill Sergeant Zeus, who will be responsible for the English speaking Hive.
It’s the first time the EOS community has access to funding outside of block production and it’s amazing how fast the EOS community is mobilizing and making progress.
