EOS is a new ICO (Initial Coin offering) that have launched on the 26th of June, the year 2017. Initial Coin Offering primarily refers to the fundraising process a platform creates for investors. It is a project that is delegated proof of stake, which means that the computing power will be shared, thus produces less power consumption.

It is one of the reasons why many crypto enthusiasts found EOS intriguing. The feature of letting the users recover their keys when stolen is one of the significant innovations going forward in the blockchain world.

EOS is free for app users because of its token emission feature, which means that each token can fund a certain amount of app development on the system permanently. For instance, if an EOS user has ten tokens, these tokens can be used to run his/her app forever on the system, then app developers will just buy enough token to fund their application, which will be set up permanently.
EOS is capable of parallel processing, which means that there is no chance that EOS will one day force the system change for everybody whether they like it or not. According to crypto experts, its parallel processing feature is one of the things that makes EOS interesting.
