What is EOS? Those are the questions of many people when participating in the cryptocurrency market. To answer the questions above, in today's article, let me learn about what is EOS? Who is the group behind development?
EOS (Symbol: EOS) is a Blockchain platform developed for decentralized applications (DApps) and Smart Contract, similar to Ethereum in terms of features. EOS can be viewed as an "operating system" that makes it easier to develop DApps. EOS is "backed" by the Block.one group, Block.one has raised $ 4 billion to support the building of the EOS Blockchain during the ICO.
EOS tokens were previously developed on the Ethereum blockchain according to ERC20 standard, after the launch of the test version (Testnet), on 01/60/2018, EOS officially launched the official version (Mainnet) and currently is working on version 1.1.4. In other words, EOS will no longer be an ERC20 Token and it will become a Blockchain-based Coin.
