The EOS project was launched back in June 2018 and it has about a billion tokens in circulation. EOS differs from Ethereum in that it operates on a delegated Proof-of-Stake consensus protocol. The token itself is used in on-chain governance and users can use this to vote for EOS 21 block producers, who earn tokens for validating transactions.
According to Investopedia:
"To draw a parallel, EOS.IO is akin to the operating system of a computer – it manages and controls the EOS blockchain network. EOS.IO uses blockchain architecture that is built to enable vertical and horizontal scaling of decentralized applications. The EOS token is the cryptocurrency of the EOS network." https://www.investopedia.com/tech/what-is-eos/
