EOS has become the most dominant blockchain platform in the world by most measures. EOS is comprised of more than 300 entities — nerds running “nodes” in buildings around the world — that make up its decentralized data storage and processing infrastructure. Democracy is built into the EOS infrastructure through its Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS) governance system. The EOS central thesis is that people thrive when they collaborate and support one another. The network pays its top 100 nodes through a 1% inflation mechanism that generates new coins to compensate the network’s infrastructure providers.
