According to its whitepaper, EOS is developing “a blockchain architecture that scales to millions of transactions per second, eliminate user fees, and allows for quick and easy deployment of decentralized applications.”
The EOS blockchain supports dapp development and deployment and smart contract coding, similar to Ethereum. The EOS coins serve as utility tokens which grant the owners access to the resources on the EOS blockchain. Another impressive ability of this blockchain is its processing capacity of 50,000 transactions per second.
