What is EOS? EOS.IO is software that introduces a blockchain architecture designed to enable vertical and horizontal scaling ofShow more [+] decentralized applications (the “EOS.IO Software”). This is achieved through an operating system-like construct upon which applications can be built. The software provides accounts, authentication, databases, asynchronous communication and the scheduling of applications across multiple CPU cores and/or clusters. The resulting technology is a blockchain architecture that has the potential to scale to millions of transactions per second, eliminates user fees and allows for quick and easy deployment of decentralized applications.
block.one, a Cayman Islands exempted company, is building the EOS.IO Software. With employees and advisors based around the world, the company focuses on business-grade technology solutions, including blockchain software development.
EOS tokens are ERC-20 compatible tokens distributed on the Ethereum blockchain pursuant to a related ERC-20 smart contract (the “EOS Tokens”).
