Benefits of EOS
The package that EOS is presenting to companies consist of scalability, flexibility and usability.
In the aspect of scalability, the platform is designed to support thousands of commercial scale
decentralized applications and separation of authentication from execution. The platform is
supposed to be able to support millions of transactions per second.
The platform provides for flexibility, where one can freeze and fix broken applications. It allows
for the provision of a generalized role-based permissions and is written in web assembly.
The last benefit is that of usability. In EOS, one can access a web toolkit for interface
development, have self describing interfaces and self describing database schemes.
What are the features of the EOS platform?
The team at EOS is designing the ownership model in a manner where there
would not be a need for transaction fees. In this ownership model, users own
and possess the right to access resources in proportion to their stake, rather than
having to incur fees for every transaction.
EOS will use the delegated proof-of-stake consensus model, a dpos will allow for
lesser energy consumption and for a faster and more decentralized model. This sort
of mechanism also allows for the fixing of bugs and the ability to rollback changes.
