EOS Coin Report



Consensus Algorithm



Development Language


Token Utility

  • Governance: Tokens are used in the POS voting system to elect block producers.
  • Airdrops: Projects can distribute their tokens to existing EOS token holders.
  • Network usage: Users must have EOS tokens in order to use the network. EOS tokens give users access to EOS Bandwidth and Log Storage (Disk), Computation and Computational Backlog (CPU), and State Storage (Ram), proportional to the percentage of EOS tokens they hold. Users can buy, rent, and lease tokens.

Differentiating Features

  • Stolen-key recovery: Using a combination of phone, email, and designated account recovery partners (a trusted third party such as a family member), account ownership can be recovered in the event of it being compromised.
  • Delayed Actions: Certain payments can be marked as unconfirmed until a specified amount of time has passed since they were included in a block. At any time within that period the transaction may be cancelled.
  • Usernames: EOS supports custom 12 character usernames for easy readability and safer transacting.
  • Parallel processing: EOS will support parallel execution of processes on the blockchain to allow for increased scalability.
  • Apple Secure Enclave: EOS supports Apple’s Secure Enclave, which is a hardware-based key manager included in recent generation Apple devices. This allows your Apple device to function as a hardware wallet just like a Ledger Nano or Trezor. Block.one is currently building a wallet that uses Apple’s Secure Enclave.
