How would users best ensure that the owner of the token didn't cheat and issue themselves additional tokens across a bunch of new accounts? This isn't really an issue, it's assumed by all involved in an airdrop that the creator isn't doing this out of benevolence. They need not cheat the system with a 'bunch of new accounts', that's a lot of unnecessary ...

Yes, you can do that. It's handled by the delay_sec property of the transaction structure. Check this answer: https://eosio.stackexchange.com/a/389/54 If you are using EOSRPC or inside the contract code, just change the delay_sec.

They need to protect themselves from the SEC which is in the middle of determining a classification for crypto currencies and ICOs. They have no means of actually preventing you from purchasing, owning or otherwise transacting in EOS on the ICO or from a 3rd party exchange. Further, some have expressed concerns that users from these countries who ...

Claiming is used to claim your EOS tokens that you bought on the official ICO. Every time you buy tokens you have to claim again. Registering is used to register an Ethereum address that holds EOS ERC-20 tokens you bought on an exchange (or received from another person). You only need to claim an address once, when you add more tokens to that address all of ...

EOS tokens traded on exchanges are tokens that were purchased from the EOS ICO. The price of a token when buying from the ICO is determined at the end of the 24 hour period, meaning you can expect the price to climb through the day. The value of the ICO tokens for that 24 hour period is relative to the value at which speculators are trading the tokens on ...

It's the same token. It's likely throttled throughout the day. The most accurate depiction of cost is closer to the end of the sale period. No matter when you submit your ether during the sale period it will always go with the rate at the end of the period. The rate is based on demand during the specific sale period, but will likely be close to the price on ...

Their are various legal reasons why it is more difficult to accept direct investment in direct ICO purchases for EOS. Many projects choose to exclude US or Chinese citizens because the law under which the government will enforce rules is not fully codified and therefore creates uncertainty, or the laws and regulations are more stringent than other countries. ...

Michael Yeates answered this question in one of community Telegrams, this is my rephrase: This validate_b1_vesting check is used in system_contract::changebw() and will cause eosio_assert when B1 tries to undelegate more tokens than available by current point of time. Since they cannot undelegate, they cannot transfer it further. Blockchain is secure.

The default implementation of eosio.token doesn't support burn you describe. Add next code block to your token contract. void token::burn( const asset& quantity, const string& memo ) { auto sym = quantity.symbol; check( sym.is_valid(), "invalid symbol name" ); check( memo.size() <= 256, "memo has more than 256 bytes" ); stats ...

Technically depends on whatever smart contract you'll use for the tokens however I'll assume you're using the eosio.token contract. You can sell this RAM only if you're able to unstake it, you cannot unstake RAM if it is currently being used, it is used in the multi-index containers which each row costs a portion of RAM. In the eosio.token contract, ...

There will come a time when EOS will have to take a snapshot of all Ethereum wallets that are registered before launching their mainnet. To ensure that there are no new EOS tokens being purchased and to limit trading of tokens owned by speculators, it is important to freeze all tokens for a smooth swap. It is not clear at this moment if exchanges like ...

What would one normally use to iterate over all EOS addresses? Code examples maybe? How do know which EOS addresses exist and have tokens? Normally, you would download the ledger and store the accounts in a database, but you can also use https://www.eossnapshots.io/

I have understood the concept of inflation - fixed or varying (increasing or decreasing). I have shared my thoughts through this article - Understanding Inflation in Cryptoeconomics - https://medium.com/@abhi3700/understanding-inflation-in-cryptoeconomics-163162f4107e

There are no incompatible wallets. Every Ethereum address allows you to interact and claim/register your tokens through MEW. Another alternative is to use Exodus wallet which gives you the option to register your wallet.
