Who we are
A collaborative research initiative dedicated to the continuous improvement of the EOS network infrastructure through cutting-edge experimentation and objective measurement of block producers’ performance.
EOS Mechanics is deploying different smart contracts and conducting various experiments with different hardware and software configurations on testnets, and will periodically produce research papers, articles and recommendations to help the community improve the efficiency and robustness of the network.
Our first contract’s CPU action calculates Mersenne prime numbers and is called at random short intervals, recording data points on-chain for each producer. The Mersenne primes calculation is a natural first choice as it is an industry standard for measuring CPU performance and uses code operations that are common in software development.
Deployed: Mainnet, Jungle and CryptoKylin
