Dan Larimer Possible Leaving EOS for New Project: Milestones

Larimer alluded to plans for a new cryptocurrency project which the community said was comparable to Bitcoin and supposed he will leave EOS

The EOS creator and Block.one CTO implied the motional coins to be ‘immutable, non-programmable, and limited to a currency role’. This caused the community to liken it to Bitcoin.

He further holds that the project will not undermine the real-world applications of EOS.

Larimer dubbed the new coin MonerEOS and laid a series of traits the coins will have.

Is He leaving EOS?

Due to the new project, some in the community believes he will be leaving EOS.

But Larimer clarified he is not leaving EOS nor Block.one. In the same message, he stated that he ‘stumbled upon’ the ‘potential crypto token’ while working on the security and scalability of EOS.

What Made Larimer a Controversial Figure?

Dan Larimer’s previous decisions and his tendency to jump from project-to-project made him a bit notorious in the cryptocurrency industry.

2014 — Larimer is the creator of Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) consensus. DPoS was first applied in BitShares, a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange, and his first project.

BitShares became known for letting exchanges be the biggest block producers.

2016 — Larimer is the co-founder and chief developer of blockchain-based social media Steemit where he took the position of CTO until March of 2017. Recently it was reported that the platform will be laying off 70% of its employees because of the bearish cryptocurrency market.

2017 — After Steemit, Larimer became CTO of Block.one and went on to develop EOS.

2018 — In June, Larimer proposed to reorganize the governance of EOS which was riddled with allegations of being centralized.

In October, he stated in a YouTube interview, ‘Decentralization is not what we’re after.’

Ethereum [ETH] dApp users drop as EOS and Tron dominate the market

EOS tops the dApps chart with its PRA CandyBox listing on blockchain dApps website, Dapp Radar. In the list of the most popular dApps on the website, EOS is in competition with Tron’s dApps. However, this finding is not good news for Ethereum [ETH] as it holds only one dApp in the top 30. On the other hand, EOS has 13 of its dApps listed. Ethereum’s platform has a total of 1,812 dApps against the 323 dApps that EOS has. On the contrary, a recent report suggests that more than 50% of EOS dApps are used per day, while only a mere 10% of the ETH dApps were used daily. A huge disparity is noted in terms of the volume of transactions per day on the two blockchains. Transactions on the Ethereum network are around 200,000 per day while EOS executes 450,000 transactions per day. According to charts published by dApp Radar, daily users of the ETH dApps from December 2017 to February 2018 shaped a large volume, rallying above 17000. The numbers fell for a period of three months but continued to maintain a minimum user base of 8500. The lowest phase recorded for the dApps on Ethereum was registered in July 2018, when the users per day fell below 8000. Gaming is the most popular space on the ETH platform with 1535 users, while gambling, exchanges and marketplaces have 1535, 800 and 162 users respectively. Besides, another dApp to join the EOS bandwagon is NEO network’s Effect, the popular AI-powered dApp. It was launched on the NEO blockchain in 2017 and will migrate to the EOS decentralized platform soon. The reason cited by Jesse Eisses, CTO of Effect.AI stated: “The current implementation of the blockchain can’t get to the promised transaction throughput and the smart contract compilers besides C# are still immature.” The post Ethereum [ETH] dApp users drop as EOS and Tron dominate the market appeared first on AMBCrypto.
