EOS was announced by CEO, Brendan Blumer, in May 2017. The ICO launched on the 26th June 2017 with a total supply of 1,000,000,000 EOS tokens available. EOS’s parent company, Block.one, has had critics questions the usability of the token that has no apparent value, use case or features. In addition, Block.one has stated they do not plan to launch any platform adopting the EOS software. Despite these conditions, EOS has managed to fundraise an incredible sum based on their white paper which spells out a platform similar to ethereum but better in every way. EOS roadmap now focuses on 3 main testing phases: Security audits, parallel optimization, and cluster implementation.
