EOS is a blockchain-based public infrastructure ecosystem offering a platform for the creation of decentralized applications (dApps). It is designed to be scalable and flexible, as well being highly usable through web tool kits, self describing interfaces, and database schemes.
Dan Larimer, Brendan Bloomer, and the development team at block.one are the creators of EOS. The first version of EOS, EOS Dawn 1.0, was launched on September 14, 2017. The second version of EOS, EOS Dawn 2.0, was launched on December 4, 2017 and added resource tracking and inter-blockchain communication to the EOS platform. In April 2018, EOS launched EOS Dawn 3.0, which marked the official launch of the EOS platform.
