June 25, 2017

On Saturday July 1, 2017 we will be adding support for EOS (EOS) exchange trading through EOS/USD, EOS/BTC, and EOS/ETH pairs. Margin trading for EOS pairs will be enabled in the coming days as the order book develops suitable liquidity.

EOS is a development platform designed to make production of high performance decentralized applications fast and scalable.

EOS is being designed by an experienced management and development team, and boasts co-founder Daniel Larimer who’s previously founded two community projects that now have over 1 billion USD in aggregate token value. Daniel introduced the concept of the DAO in 2014 and is the inventor of Delegated/Nominated Proof of Stake (DPOS).

EOS features:

  • Parallel Processing
    Parallel processing capabilities bring continuous scalability and a reliable high performance foundation for your applications. Existing single threaded capabilities force every application to share the capacity and performance of one single-threaded blockchain, create hard scaling limits, and eventually suffer from network congestion that may result in platform-wide downtime.
  • A Decentralized Operating System
    The EOS.IO software assists developers with databases, permissions, scheduling, authentication, and inter-application communication. This greatly simplifies the process of building and deploying decentralized applications, and widens the potential developer audience to anyone with basic web development experience. The EOS.IO software is designed to allow developers to leverage the blockchain without sacrificing development time or compromising mainstream performance standards.
  • A Ratifiable Constitution
    The EOS constitution governs the block producers and every transaction on the network through a peer to peer User License Agreement. The Constitution outlines a transparent framework for dispute resolution, force majeure decision making, and creates a common default arbitration framework for all users globally. Self Sufficiency and Evolution An EOS blockchain is an entirely self sufficient, self funding, distributed network with all governance on chain; it does not rely on any single foundation, corporation, or individual. Slow predictable creation of new tokens (max 5% annually) are distributed by the community through elected smart contracts to fund network operation and growth.
  • A Large and Diverse Community
    EOS is built on the backbone of the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS) community that has built and run the largest smart businesses in the blockchain ecosystem today - BitShares and Steem. With more than a billion dollars in market capitalization and more network activity than both Bitcoin and Ethereum combined, this community has begun pushing its innovations to the forefront of the space and are expanding the boundaries of what is capable.
