The 4 Billion Dollar ICO: A Brief History of EOS

EOS raised a whopping $4.4 billion in a record-breaking ICO, making it the largest token sale to date. This figure makes Ethereum’s $18.3 million ICO seem rather small. Interestingly, the developers issued the tokens on the Ethereum blockchain during the ICO. At the time, EOSIO was still nonexistent.

EOS Adoption is Growing

User uptake is a significant factor driving the value of EOS. The more people are using and building on the blockchain, the more likely the value of its token will increase.

Opportunities & Challenges

Following its successful ICO, EOS had its fair share of ups and downs that highlight the cryptocurrency’s opportunities and challenges. Let’s take a look!


  • EOSIO provides a developer-friendly platform that anyone can start building on without needing to learn a new programming language.
  • EOSIO offers scalability, efficiency, and high throughput.
  • The network uses an environmentally-friendly consensus protocol.
  • Support by several notable investors.


  • Disagreements between ENF and have hindered the development of the EOS ecosystem.
  • The delegated Proof of Stake (dPoS) protocol could lead to centralization of control.
