EOS Airdrops 2018

After a long process of several weeks of ups and downs, the EOS network has been officially launched on June the 15th. For some it is an important event in the history of the crypto market. If you don't know what it's about, we'll explain that in this article.

What Is EOS?

EOS is like a cloud computing service in the style of Amazon Web Service. It is a platform for data storage or hosting, except that instead of using a centralized server, EOS is distributing the data in a decentralized distributed system using blockchain technology.

It was created by the Startup Blockchain Block.one. It was able to raise more than $4 billion to develop its open source software in a year-long of Initial Coin Offering (ICO).

Instead of competing in an open global market like Bitcoin (BTC), users who own tokens constantly vote for block producers. Its purpose is to establish a global network that no one can control from the ground up.

EOS Mainnet Launch Week

Since last week Block.one has delivered its code to the community, i.e. to developers willing to work on the software, as well as to 21 block producers who will approve its transactions. In order to be more efficient than the average blockchains, EOS reduces the number of individuals or companies that can validate transactions.

Some individuals questioned the configuration, as they claimed that the voting process took some time, while all distributed users of the network had problems with coordination. Thus, the most damaging criticism might come from those who were anxious to point out that this had been done before with varying results.

Overall, it is safe to say that this voting process seemed a little confusing from the outside, and that other market observers were perhaps too quick to make a judgment. Some even went so far as to blame the action plan for the poor performance of the token market in recent weeks.

The EOS Mainnet Difference

EOS operates differently from other blockchains. It has been hard for the industry to see what EOS is trying to create and that this vision actually adds value to the users it wants to reach.

It is still not very clear who would use a blockchain that is not so decentralized. After all, blockchain believers cite decentralization as a key advantage of blockchains over the world's traditional financial system.

Currently, EOS ranks as the number five cryptocurrency according to CoinMarketCap, which is quite surprising for some other currencies that are in the space since longer time and with bigger communities.
