What is EOS?

Why investors buy EOS: EOS is a blockchain platform designed for decentralised applications (DApps) and smart contracts. Let’s talk about what the platform does, its native cryptocurrency, and how to buy it on CoinJar.

What is EOS?

EOS, short for “Enterprise Operating System,” aims to provide a scalable and user-friendly platform for dApps. It was developed by a private company called Block.one and launched in 2018.

At the time of its launch, it was a promising smart contract platform aiming to challenge Ethereum’s dominance.

The initial coin offering (ICO) raised a record-breaking US$4.1 billion. (An ICO is a way for new cryptocurrency projects to raise funds.)

However, after the ICO, many believed development did not live up to expectations. The community eagerly awaited the promised advancements but saw little progress. Some community members felt that Block.one did not fulfil its commitments, leading to disappointment and frustration.

Despite the massive ICO, development stagnated, and the ecosystem faced challenges.

Challenges

Since then, EOS has overcome past challenges and adapted to present demands since its inception.

While it no longer holds its former top-10 position, the community has taken back control and is determined to restore the platform to its former glory.

See standard risk warning at the end of this article.

Despite setbacks, EOS enthusiasts continue to work towards revitalising the platform.

Cool things

AtomicHub

A high-scale NFT platform, AtomicHub is used by millions worldwide. It includes an NFT Explorer, Marketplace, Trading interface, and Creator.

Prospectors

Prospectors is an economic strategy game set in the 19th-century Gold Rush era, where players mine resources, build structures, and trade.

Wallets

Protect your crypto: CoinJar provides its own wallet service. It is convenient, however it is an online wallet, so there is a risk that it may be a victim of a cyberattack. Online wallets are also called “hot wallets”.

External Wallets: If you want to hold on to your crypto for a while, you can transfer your crypto to an external wallet. Hardware wallets are also known as “cold wallets” (like Ledger or Trezor) and these are best for long-term storage as they are offline and seriously difficult to hack.
