As the EOSIO™ platform continues to evolve, Block.one’s collaboration with the open source community building on EOSIO has become a critical component of the software’s adoption. Recently announced in the EOSIO Strategic Vision, we’ve proposed a foundation based on four core principles of focus: Scalability, Developers, Users, and Enterprises, each with fundamental features which set EOSIO apart. In this first article of a four part series to review each pillar of the Strategic Vision, we’ll take a closer look at Scalability and how we’re taking strides to maximize efficiency across EOSIO based blockchains.

When it comes to mass consumer adoption of blockchain applications, scalability remains one of the greatest focal points. Through continuous research and innovation, our team has strived to develop a robust, efficient, and highly capable software environment that can rapidly scale to meet needs determined by marketplace dynamics. In fact, Bart Wyatt, our Director of Blockchain Development, recently published a byline focused on Blockchain Scalability on Cointelegraph that discusses various interpretations of scalability and why scale is the most critical component of blockchain’s adoption.
