The Great dApp Exodus: Projects Moving to EOS Blockchain
In the three short months since the launch of the EOS mainnet many exciting things have occurred. But few are more exciting than the seemingly steady drumbeat of dApps migrating from Ethereum to EOS.
The decision to port your project onto a different blockchain is significant, and we are pleased to see some of the most promising blockchain developers are choosing the EOS mainnet to deliver speed and scalability to their users. The list of projects continues to grow, but here are some of the most exciting projects we’ve seen coming to EOS:
On July 12th, EOSBET announced they will be moving away from Ethereum entirely and turning their efforts solely towards building on the EOS mainnet. Since the move, EOSBET has become the most popular EOS dApp by weekly transaction volume (18.1million) and continues to go from strength to strength.

Medipedia (MEP) is a decentralized healthcare app that wants to eliminate the role of intermediaries in the growing health tourism industry. The project is using blockchain technology to offer peer-to-peer matching and consultation services, as well as other healthcare related offerings.
The MEP token was originally based on the Ethereum blockchain ERC-20 standard, but Medipedia said they made the decision to move over to EOS because “scalability and transaction speed on the Ethereum network is limited.”

Tixico is a platform which allows users to buy event tickets on secondary markets, using blockchain technology to ensure secure transactions, fair prices and fraud protection.
The project said “Ethereum doesn’t fulfil our needs and requirements anymore especially when looking forward to the future developments” and announced they will be moving to EOS for better performance, scalability, low latency and no transaction fees.
Billionaire Token was an Ethereum ERC-20 token with a deflationary mechanism, designed to be used as an in-game currency for the Billionaire Token games. The project announced they are moving to EOS and said: “For our purposes it promises to be much faster than the Ethereum Network.”
Insights Network is building a secure infrastructure for decentralized data exchange, allowing individuals and organizations to exchange data in a trustworthy and mutually beneficial way.
The team said in a statement: “After much deliberation between Ethereum and EOS, it was evident that the best way forward for our platform was to embrace EOS and its surrounding ecosystem.”
When our team first discussed requirements for the Insights Network platform, it quickly became clear that we must…medium.com
The WAX platform allows users to create a virtual marketplace on the blockchain with zero investment in security, infrastructure or payment processing.
The project originally planned to build on the Ethereum blockchain, but after evaluating other options including Lisk, Ark, EOS and Tendermint, they decided EOS was the superior foundation. Instead of building the WAX dApp on top of the EOS mainnet, they will be implementing EOS technology within the WAX platform.
Sentinel Protocol is a B2B marketplace designed to provide affordable and secure financial services to the unbanked. Sentinel Protocol is also the first project to announce they are moving from ICON to the EOS blockchain.
The project made the announcement in a YouTube interview, followed by a statement on Reddit: “We decided to use EOS for the time being, because unfortunately ICON’s development schedule currently does not fit our own product development schedule.”
While building EOS, Dan Larimer said he wanted the blockchain to facilitate the smooth transition of projects onto the EOS mainnet. With 0.5 second block times and the RAM price levelling out, we believe this is just the beginning and many more projects will be taking the leap over to EOS as it is currently the most scalable blockchain platform available.
The LiquidEOS team is in the process of launching a dApp hub in Tel Aviv, with the goal of innovating and introducing many more great dApps into the EOS ecosystem. We are very excited about what the future holds and look forward to seeing many more projects join the movement.
