BEOS BECO Director Elections

in #bitshares4 years ago (edited)


Well our first BEOS year is in the can and it's time to elect two replacement directors to replace Paul Martello who died a few months back and Angus McGlynn who suffered a back injury and was forced to resign. The two replacements will join our other three directors Michael Taggart, Timothy Burke and Stan Larimer looking after the BEOS network and managing tokens for Manna holders.

All holders of BEOS are eligible to vote in proportion to their BEOS holdings. We will be dropping voting tokens to all accounts on BEOS and BitShares that hold BEOS tokens. The first director will be elected during the fiirst two weeks in June using a new VOTEA token to be distributed on June 1st. You'll have two weeks to send in your votes to the account of whoever you want to choose as a director to replace Paul. Then on the sixteenth we'll deliver VOTEB tokens to be used in the following two weeks to choose a director to replace Angus.

Anyone can throw their hat in the ring to be nominated for the positions. Just post your qualifications and why you want the job in the comments to this post. Be sure to specify your BEOS account where people should send their VOTE tokens to vote for you. Whoever collects the most VOTEA tokens by June 15th will be declared the winner of Paul's slot. Whoever collects the most VOTEB by June 30 will be the winner of Angus's slot. These are three-year terms.

Stan's term will expire next year and Michael and Tim will expire at the end of the third year, two years from now.

Existing directors will vote BEOS tokens held by BECO and BLCA.

You are free to spend your tokens to any combination of accounts but you'll have the biggest effect sending them all to the one person you want to win.

My dear friends and great memories!

I voted in favor of Lana. @onceuponatime would have approved of that, and I know she will work to carry on Paul's vision.

Will definitely vote for you these days.

Just voted. Good luck Lana!

Hello Lana, I voted for you some days ago. Good luck! »» @portugal

My name is Doug Bebber and I'm very optimistic regarding the future of BEOS. I would like to offer up my services as a director. My qualifications:

Involved with blockchain technology since 2010
Developed a few EOSIO smart contracts and Dapps
Created a gambling (blackjack) demo specifically for Stan's cruise ship use case (pre Covid-19 , not sure about the future of cruise ship industry now)
I am a business owner and investor
I am passionate regarding the future of DAOs, Dapps, community governance and digital property rights.

I would be committed to doing what's best for the BEOS community. If you would like to vote for me my BEOS address is: dougsbeosact

Hi douglasbebber, I already voted in favor of Lana this time but I will use my VOTEB tokens to vote in your favor, as soon as they are available. You will receive from my account "portugal".

Is no one interested? what will be required for this ?

About a monthly board meeting and occasional email votes to authorize spending.

Hi all,

Unfortunately I don't have enough time at the moment to properly write a story (historical one) on past 3 years and who I am but ill sum it up in few words...

I'm easily agitated, straight forward and not really candid type of a guy. It helped me a lot to cleanup BitShares for past 3 years and it still does.

Details on my professional background can be seen on Linkedin profile with a small notice that my last employment with BitShares blockchain was Temporary Manager of Prelude Core worker (Mainnet release 4.0 final delivery).

My skills, knowledge and position would be beneficial for BEOS as a project and its community as I do understand both projects and people behind them very well.
