What is EOS?
EOSIO is a blockchain platform designed for the building of decentralised apps (Dapps) and EOS coin is the cryptocurrency that drives the network.
The fast, flexible and scalable EOS blockchain was launched in 2018 by blockchain software company Block.one.
At least 400 apps have already been built on EOSIO, which include decentralised identity solution OmniOne, game distribution platform Ultra, and supply chain traceability and compliance solution Chainflux.
How is EOS different from Ethereum?
EOS has some similarities with Ethereum, such as its smart contract functionality and the ability to build Dapps, but is different because EOS uses a delegated proof-of-stake (dPoS) consensus mechanism while Ethereum still uses proof-of-work (PoW).

EOS’ founders created the coin’s consensus mechanism to solve the problems that exist with PoW and PoS systems. The goal of the project is to make EOS easier to use for programmers than Ethereum and other blockchains, and as such, it provides extensive tools, training and certification to help developers build apps quickly and successfully.
