EOS Cannon: In EOS We Trust Cannon
EOS already has one of the best blockchain communities in the world if not the best! We have achieved tremendous things together through great technology, leading governance, and a world-class international community. An amazing international community is difficult to build due to different geographical locations, cultures, political point of views and time zones.
Although incredibly challenging it's been extremely beneficial to have had early success in creating such a diverse community. The differing viewpoints, locations, talents, and experiences the global community brings form the decentralization strength of the ecosystem. Collective strength that aids network security, ideation, decision making and overall trust in the network.
At EOS Silicon Valley we are an international team from different cultural, working and educational backgrounds. This provides a unique opportunity for us to foster and improve the communications across the world. With that in mind, we are officially launching the East meet West Series as our effort in building the world EOS community. It is one step from us that we believe can inspire other individuals and teams in the community to get to know each other better and prosper.
Here is the first blog of this series, this one from EOS Cannon. EOS Cannon has been doing an excellent job introducing global BPs to the Chinese community so it is only right we introduce them first!

We are not only the major holders, but also a group of people with self-consciousness, community governance consensus and strong personal abilities. We generate enormous energy and chemical reactions.
EOS Cannon will be a premium community brand in the blockchain era.

What we still have to emphasize is that community is crucial. We have established many WeChat and telegram group online communities, with thousands of EOS supporters and EOS holders. We publish real-time EOS information in the group every day, and everyone will discuss the hot issues related to EOS and share valuable suggestions. We have definitely established a super energetic community.
We focus on PR and communication, and have a professional operation team to do content, including EOS Cannon daily, weekly newspaper, comics, big-whale interviews, overseas nodes in China, KOL technology articles, Twitter and other content output. Welcome to follow our Twitter and Bihu accounts.

EOS Cannon is the first node to actively introduce overseas nodes to China and recommend them to other communities actively. So far, we have recommended nearly 30 overseas nodes to the Chinese community and helped many overseas nodes to establish contact with the Chinese community.
We always believe that in order to let everyone get a better understanding on EOS, a good way is to let more people own EOS. Therefore, we have released 50,000 EOS airdrop activities with the largest block chain community to help develop the EOS ecosystem!
We hosted many Meet-ups, from Beijing, Hong Kong, Xiamen, Chengdu to Shanghai, and from London to Seoul, actively participating in other BPs’ activities.

C. We also actively interact with others in the official telegraph group and our own telegraph group https://t.me/eos_cannon
D. Of course, we organize offline meet-up.
7. What kind of Block Producers will win the votes from your community?

8. What final words do you want to say to the EOS Silicon Valley and world’s EOS community?
