Still, if you haven’t been following the event closely, it might beg the question, ‘What is EOS anyway?’ When we talk about EOS, think about a cloud …

Who do you trust with your private key? That’s the question that may be on the minds of EOS token holders, who while incentivized to help the much-anticipated technology finally go live, haven’t yet done so.

Almost one week after initiating, one of the largest, strangest experiments in global crypto governance hesitated as it neared its culmination.

The ongoing blockchain launch for the hotly anticipated token project EOS is becoming a bit more complicated. No, this isn’t the product of a hard fork, whereby users weren’t able to work out their differences.

Days after first initiating its launch in an unorthodox, distributed process, the EOS blockchain isn’t yet live, but so far, the software appears to be progressing toward that goal without any major issues.

Block.One is giving away its $4 billion code this weekend and it’s anyone’s guess what will happen next. As profiled by CoinDesk, EOS is set to launch sometime soon, though the company that built its code is going out of its way to prove the software really will be open-source. This means it isn’t even designating …

It turns out, owning EOS could be a 17-for-one offer for anyone who’s in before the launch. That’s because, once live, it won’t just be the cryptocurrency that powers the EOS software that’s available to the market (see our full guide to the launch). In fact, most EOS holders will find they also own a bunch …

Another blockchain for smart contracts? As surprising as it might sound, there’s a respect for incumbency even in the world of cryptocurrencies. As such, when the upstart EOS protocol launched last year with the ambition of improving on innovations like ethereum (themselves just a few years old), incredulity was in ample supply. Intervening months haven’t …
