Process of creating EOS coin
Unlike cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and Ethereum which are released through the mining process using power supply and internet using the proof-of-work consensus, for EOS coin, that is not the case. Instead, EOS coin was created to become a delegated proof of stake coin.During its launch, all required 1 billion coins were released. Furthermore, EOS became an inflation coin in order to reward those securing the network. Its inflation rate is 5% per anum. As a delegated proof of stake coin, there are two key perticipants,the voters and the block producers. The voters will use their EOS coin to vote to any of the 21 verified block producers. The block producers will use the votes to produce new blocks to the EOS network as well as to secure the EOS network after which they will receive reward of the fees charged on the EOS network as well as released the 5% of new EOS coin to the EOS blockchain. Out of this amount, 4$ will be rewarded to the voters while the 1$ will be rewarded to block producers to be shared based on the amount of votes they receive. As a block producer,the more votes you receive the more your reward while as a voter the more your voting the more reward you receive. Here is how the EOS staking process looks like;
