This Token is Trying to Replace Ethereum

Decentralize Everything

There is a new token on the block called EOS. They are dreaming large. On their website, their header says: DECENTRALIZE EVERYTHING.

What does that even mean? It is extremely vague. Regardless, they raised over $150 million in a mere 5 days. They distributed 200 million of their token.

According to block.one:

“The EOS Token Sale will be distributed daily over about 341 days. 1,000,000,000 (one billion) EOS tokens will be minted at the start of the sale. These tokens will be split into different rolling windows of availability. The tokens available in a window will be split proportionally to all the contributions made during the window period.”

This way, the EOS token supply will linearly increase over time following the initial round. The economics behind this ICO operation seek to prevent any particular spikes or drop in price. It avoids rapid movements in supply and demand.

The primary goal of the EOS team is to ensure a wide distributions of the tokens.

This process provides equal opportunity to participate for their investors, spreads broad awareness of the EOS network, and manifests a fairer distribution process.

The Token

EOS’s token, ERC20, claims to be a direct competitor to Ethereum, which is utilized to transfer value from investor to company in ICOs.

However, founder Dan Larimer claims that EOS is more scalable than Ethereum and therefore is able to construct decentralized applications more efficiently.

Many major tokens on the Ethereum blockchain have been designed specifically to be ERC20 compliant.

Technical Specifications

According to their technical white paper, EOS’s clever design enables vertical and horizontal scaling of decentralized applications:

“The software provides accounts, authentication, databases, asynchronous communication and the scheduling of applications across hundreds of CPU cores or clusters. The resulting technology is a blockchain architecture that scales to millions of transactions per second, eliminates user fees, and allows for quick and easy deployment of decentralized applications.”

The Future

During the d10e conference in San Francisco this last weekend of August 11th, the Crypto Times team was able to meet the founding team of EOS. They were closely tied to Blockchain Capital’s Brock Pierce. Brock strongly backs the token.

Overall, the EOS team has extremely large aspirations and a lot of money from their ICO. Let’s see if they can truly decentralize everything.
