Who is behind EOS?
It is intuitive that the reader is now wondering who stands behind this great intelligence!, after what was presented regarding the EOS, its advantages and features that have no match in other blockchain networks. It is important for us to learn who planted the first seeds of this project, and how all of this success was achieved.
It is Daniel Larimer, one of the Crypto pioneers, a person with a rare experience in the Blockchain technology construction and development. At the Bitcointalk forum, he has discussed with Satoshi Nakamoto several times regarding the Bitcoin scalability and it’s inability to handle large numbers of transactions if the world decided to adopt Bitcoin.
He has also developed three of the most famous and successful Blockchain projects: Bitshares, Steem, and EOS. He started his journey in 2014 when he started his first project "Bitshares" which was received great hype for its high transaction processing speed, as well as for building the first large-scale decentralized trading platform.
And he developed a technology called "Graphene", which became the fastest blockchain technology ever due to the engineering genius in its construction, where many blockchains networks were built on it.
As mentioned earlier, he is the creator of the DPOS algorithm which used by many other blockchain networks, including TRON, Tezos, Nano, Lisk, ICX and many others.
He did not stop at this point, yet he even created "Steem" in early 2016. It is a blockchain platform that secures income for users who write useful articles, in a mining-like way where content writers are rewarded with monetary revenues in return for the content they provide in their articles. It is a successful platform with large numbers of users. It signifies one of the most successful uses of blockchain technology. Millions of users use it to publish useful articles and earn revenue every day.
Personally, Dan has been a programmer since childhood; with extensive cultural interests that enabled him to understand the global economic system; and therefore simulating it in the EOS project, he is also interested in philosophy, especially the "Game theory" and he has made some good contributions regarding it. (you can find many of his great articles on his Steemit and Medium accounts.)
Last but not least, EOS: the subject of this article; was his third project. EOS has gained great media attention before its launch. EOS was founded by Block.One who developed its code, form the early beginning they have also received considerable funding from famous investors including Mike Novogratz. The success of EOS can be attributed to the experience of Block.One team, They are experienced and knowledgeable in the industry of blockchain applications, without having to mention the fact that they have a group of the best consultants, investors and developers from all around the world.
