He is an investor in next generation, post Von Newmann Architecture, processors currently in development, designed for high speed CPU ​ processing in nodes. Cesar is in early stages of developing a decentralized application programmed on the EOS.IO platform utilizing smart contracts ​ with user governance, which is hoping to positively impact a billion people, and will be "air dropping" tokens. (To be announced March 2018) His next planned development is a contribution-driven economy aiming to employ people in poverty from their remote location anywhere in the world. [2]

Cesar is an investor in two of the first crypto based venture capital firms, Blockchain Capital ​ and Pantera Capital ​, and also manages a private venture capital firm focusing on developing and incubating blockchain-based projects, coin/token holdings as well as infrastructure investments. [2]

Tech Specs

Proposed initial single-tenant physical server "bare metal" hardware at launch June 2018 - Subject to adjustment based on suggestions from Block.One, community peers, fellow block producers and demand-based requirements [2] ​:

*Back Up - EOS Socal will operate two nodes, one physical server for livenet and another cloud based server on standby as a back up for maximizing up-time. They plan to work with the block producer community to develop open source failover ​ systems that automatically enable stand-by systems in the event of main system failure. [2]

Scaling Plan

EOSoCal plans to scale with demand and has stated they have ample room, cooling and electrical capacity for in-house expansion. They are a self funded organization and do not have to rely on investors or block rewards to expand. [2]

Community Projects

EOSoCal is engaged in and supports a variety of educational and community benefit programs such as workshops, meetups, development of community tools and decentralized applications. They are currently are funding these benefits out-of-pocket; however if elected block producers, they plan to expand on their budget and efforts. EOSocCal pledges to commit a percentage of our block rewards to expanding these initiatives, to be determined based on our position within the elected block producers and number of votes received; which determines the amount of producer rewards. [6]

EOSocal has kept a small team so they can minimize overhead. They also do not have any investors to funnel rewards so they can maximize their ability to re-contribute to the community. [6]
