Coin of the Week: EOS + Coding Session Today!

Minnesota Cryptocurrency Presents:


This week we’ll be discussing EOS, the decentralized operating system! Similar to Ethereum, EOS serves as a blockchain architecture for decentralized applications, or dApps. In contrast to Ethereum, EOS utilizes Delegated Proof-of-Stake. DPOS is somewhat complex, and it works almost like a republic, with users voting for specific “Witnesses” who work to secure the network and improve its value. EOS has a few other concepts that make it unique, such as on-chain governance and parallel processing. While still a work in progress, EOS has many innovations that make it an interesting coin.
