CR Press Sponsor Nodes

The CR Press Sponsor Nodes are Supernodes that are actively demonstrating their commitment to the CR Ecosystem with regular contributions to CR Press.

This section recognizes nodes that understand the value of education, news, and social awareness for the whole ecosystem, which is why these nodes have special placement in our list of Supernodes.

Additionally, as the CR Press continues to grow, we will build up our treasury for major initiatives in the future.  Our treasury funds will be used to vote for our Supernode Sponsors.  Learn more about Supernode Sponsors and benifits here.

Sunny Feng Han, co-founder of Elastos, is also running a supernode announced here:  https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/OMxOPHS4GKTqua1mXt0YJw

Sunny, aside from his work in Elastos, is the Founder of MIT IDE Blockchain Pillar Foundation, an Instructor at Tsinghua University’s iCenter, Secretary General of Asian Blockchain DACA (Distributed Autonomous Coalition of Asia), Leading Editor of the books, “Blockchain, Blueprint of a New Economy”, “Blockchain Development and Examples”, “Blockchain: Quantum Wealth”, etc.  He’s also the Course Designer of Tsinghua University’s graduate course series, “Cyber Intelligence Economics and Blockchain”.

This is a diversified group of 12 members who are looking to run three nodes in the U.S.A. The members are geographically decentralized, you can find them in U.S.A, Canada, France, Netherlands, the United Kingdom & Australia. The team states, “We intend to set up cloud servers and transition into our own dedicated servers. Their incentives or as they like to call them (Berry Rewards) will be very generous at start for voters and will follow an inflationary model like Elastos. The Wild Strawberry Super-Nodes have the primary objective to secure the network at all costs. Their secondary objective is to develop and connect the Elastos Ecosystem through various means. Like wild strawberries, we intend to grow and develop everywhere, technical or social, because we consider the two elements necessary for a working elastic & evolving network. Our vision is wild, like us.

The 6 values The Strawberry Super Nodes stand for:

Empathy – Genuine human interaction

Grit – Results come from mistakes

Patience – Because fast and good don’t coexist in perfection

Community – Only together could we create something great

Stability – A secure network a strong team

Openness – Because transparency builds trust

Our Vision

Elaforestnode (EFN) is a supernode group created by cryptocurrency enthousiasts and Cyber Republicans Michael and Giel Boes. Two Dutch Elastonian brothers, whose mission it is to plant over 1 milion trees by 2025. So far we’ve accomplished to plant almost 39.000trees.

We’re partnering with WeForestin order to start the EFN foundation. Elastos holders are able to vote on EFN utilizing dedicated and secure wallets. Beside getting a nice reward, EFN voters will be contributing to ecological development on a global scale. 

For now our focus is on planting trees. In the future we’ll look into other options aswell, e.g. ocean cleanup or wildlife preservation.

Our Mission

It is our primary objective to secure the Elastos network. For our server configuration, we have chosen Amazon Web Services (AWS) for they are well known, reliable, scalable and very robust.

Our secondary objective is to plant as many trees as possible on a global scale. Deforestation, marine pollution and animal extinction require immediate and ambitious action to prevent the worst effects it can have all over the world. EFN intents to counter the indirect impact Bitcoins’ high energy cost Proof of Work has on our enviroment with proactive, real-world strategies.

Elate.CH is a group from Switzerland made up of inspired enthusiasts of the Cyber Republic and Elastos. You can follow them on their website: Elate.CH or on their Telegram: @Elatech.

The following is a statement written by the group which covers what they are offering: “Elate.CH was established as an enthusiastic pool of people sharing their common vision of a new Internet: the Internet we deserve. We’ve been enchanted by Elastos since its establishment, and we fully support the vision brought forward by the Elastos Foundation and the CR.  We want to offer our contribution by running a DPoS supernode within the rising Elastos ecosystem.

“We’ll be hosting our node from Switzerland. We are fine-tuning our reward formula, but voters can anticipate a better reward to early voters.  We aim to position ourselves amongst other leaders in regards to revenue shared with our voting community. Let’s connect! I’m Gabriele, founder of Elate.CH and an enthusiastic entrepreneur that co-founded Dexlab.io, a blockchain venture with the mission to make the decentralised economy accessible to anyone.  Be Elated to see the Elastos ecosystem blossom before your eyes!”

FAQ

The immediate use of funds will be to pay for skilled work that can provide relief for core members in the current tasks of writing, editing, website admin, and social media.  Next, the funds will be used to:

  • Bring on a dedicated designer/graphic artist.
  • Bring on Photo/Video teams to increase presence in visual media platforms.
  • Bring on additional dedicated writers, tech advisors, and editors.
  • Bring on dedicated translators.
  • Bring on international social media managers.
  • Bring on a marketing strategist and analyst for our team.

Note: While we seek to have a devoted Marketing strategist for our team, we plan to be a partner and not the sole marketing division of CR Marketing.

  • Long term, the funds will be used to expand into several other important areas:
  • On-site reporting and event presence.
  • Audio Podcasting.
  • Mainstream Crypto News and Technology.
  • Devoted Legal Advisors, Financial management, and auditing.
  • Creative Marketing division which may include comic artists, motion graphics and animators.

At this point in time, the CR Press team has 4-5 Core Members who work almost full time on CR Press including News and Weekly Updates, Website, and Social Media.  We have an additional 20+ contributors, and we are currently granted 4200 USD per month, paid in ELA.

Obviously, this workload is not sustainable with current funds, and though we will seek to gain more funding from the CR in August, we have ambitions to grow at a much faster pace both in the short term and the long term.

Individual contributions and sponsors will help boost the speed of our progress in the short term, and shared Supernode Sponsor rewards will boost our efficacy in the long term as our impact on the larger community will significantly correlate to our own funding.

While we are seeking to build a sustainable model of revenue, our primary goal is first to massively expand awareness, education, and marketing of Elastos and the Cyber Republic.

At this point in time, the CR Press team has 4-5 Core Members and an additional 20+ contributors, and we are currently unfunded.

While we are seeking to build a sustainable model of revenue, our primary goal is first to massively expand awareness, education, and marketing of Elastos and the Cyber Republic.

It is to our benefit that we are one of few news sources funded mostly by blockchain and blockchain rewards.  This will allow us to be even more unbiased than most news sources. Additionally, we have the burden of full transparency as all our activities are by nature published publicly.

We will share exactly how sponsor funds are used in regular updates, and we will be very quick to answer any questions.  While there is no such thing as a completely unbiased source, we will seek to ensure fairness and clarity in all we do–including bias of exclusion; any bias of exclusion will come only from lack of available information and manpower, rather than editorial oversight.

Next, while we are affiliated closely with Elastos, by August 2019, we will not be run by Elastos Foundation.  As stated before, we are one of the first completely community-governed organizations in CR, and this gives us the freedom to present community opinions without oversight or filtering.

Finally, we have an additional major advantage.  Cyber Republic as a name carries the weight of a global community, not simply Elastos.  We will be able to impact and reach far beyond the scope of Elastos technology, unifying the greater internet under the Cyber Republic’s vision. This will be our only major “bias” as CR Press plans to take full advantage of this fact, and there is then no vision too great for us to conquer.
