EOS (EOS) is a decentralized blockchain platform that aims to provide fast, secure, and scalable transactions for decentralized applications (dApps) and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs). It was created in 2018 by the company Block.one and operates on a Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) consensus algorithm, which allows for high-throughput and low-latency transactions.
EOS also has a unique governance model where token holders can vote for block producers, who are responsible for maintaining the network and making important decisions for the community. EOS also has its own native cryptocurrency, EOS, which is used to pay for transactions and to vote for block producers. EOS aims to provide a next-generation blockchain platform for dApps and DAOs that can handle millions of transactions per second, making it a popular choice among developers and projects.
