What is EOS ?

EOS wants to be the operating-system for blockchains and decentralized applications.

EOS Definition

EOS has the goal to build a universal operating-system for blockchains and decentralized apps, including built-in cryptoeconomic functions. Compared to other crypto-projects, a decentralized operating system is somewhat a new approach. The Ethereum-network can be seen as one super-computer. EOS instead is quite like a decentralized-running Windows / Linux / MacOS with its own electronic cash-system.

The difference is that app coins and decentralized applications running on EOS do not affect the EOS operating system itself.

So EOS wants to provide a powerful infrastructure for decentralized applications with a high scalability for mass usage. The vision: decentralized applications and app-coins – running on the decentralized operating system EOS – running on a decentralized computer-network – based on a decentralized community.

The cryptotoken EOS fuels the EOS-system and is used to run the decentralized applications.
