Block.one is an open source software publisher specializing in high performance blockchain technologies. Its first project, EOSIO, a blockchain protocol designed to enable secure data transfer and high performance decentralized applications, has received global notoriety as the first performant blockchain platform for developers, following its introduction in May 2017.
The EOSIO engineering team is led by Dan Larimer, the inventor of the revolutionary Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS) consensus mechanism. DPOS processes the majority of blockchain transactions globally and will power the EOSIO software launching in June 2018.
In December 2017, Block.one committed to investing US$1 billion to launch EOS VC, a vehicle designed to invest in businesses leveraging the transformative capabilities of the EOSIO software. EOS VC has announced deployment of capital through partnerships, including with: Michael Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital, Derek Rundell of Eric Schmidt’s TomorrowVentures, Finlab AG (ETR:A7A), and Michael Cao’s EOS Global.
Published by Block.one, EOSIO is a compliant blockchain protocol that enables horizontal scaling of decentralized applications, allowing developers to efficiently create high performance distributed applications. The EOSIO software provides accounts, authentication, databases, and the scheduling of applications across multiple CPU cores and/or clusters. This allows for horizontal scalability, replaces user fees with an ownership model, and powers simple deployment of decentralized applications. The EOSIO GitHub repository is available here.
