Block.one Will Now Vote for EOS Candidates, But Wants Their Locations First - CoinDesk

In an email to CoinDesk, Kevin Rose, who used to be head of BP EOS New York, and now manages the relations between Block.one and the EOS community, played down the location requirement, saying it was just a factor they would take into consideration when deciding who to vote for.

"While we do not value one jurisdiction over another, this voluntary location disclosure is something that has been organically championed by the general EOS community, so we chose to embrace it as we begin voting for the first time," he said.

At the end of the day, a location disclosure has been proposed as voting criteria since August 2019, so Block.one, he said, is just "embracing that community desire.".

But Alex Melikhov, CEO and founder of Equilibrium and the EOSDT stablecoin, told CoinDesk that location disclosure would do little to ensure Block.one voted for eligible BPs.

"As we engage with community members, our voting approach will evolve, and criteria will be added to ensure that the recipients of our votes adhere to the standards we wish to see network-wide."
