EOS recently launched mainnet with a lot of questions raised with regards to being centralized as against the EOS constitution. The split from etherum blockchain allows EOS to have its own blochain network. Holders of EOS Tokens were asked to register their wallets before the mainnet and keep keep keys safe. The keys can be used to claim ownership of EOS token on its blochain using tools such as greymass, simpleos, scatter all desktop software to access their EOS tokens.
EOS aims at creating a platform for Decentralized Applications to be deployed on EOS blockchain network.EOS price has remained low which many community users believe is as a result of Bitcoin price fall. According EOS block explorers, EOS reached a new high of 1,275 transactions per second while processing around 500,000 transactions in the past 24 hours.
EOS processed about 800 transactions in one seconds as at eleven hours ago. Around one hour ago it reached 990, and then at the time of writing, 1,200 for just one second.
It then returned to somewhat normal, with it unclear at this stage just how exactly these transactions per second are being measured.
This development is coming at the time etherum network is suddenly congested with a high increase in transactions which currently stand at 1$ per transaction. This brought excitement to EOS community users as etherum is perceived to be EOS rival.
This development didn’t go down well as a dapp developer has accused eos of being responsible for the the congestion in ethereum network. As reported by Trustnodes, he stated:
“If you don’t think EOS is doing it, then who has 2 million dollars a day to attack ethereum, and also owns eos tokens?”
EOS lead developer Dan Larimer has denied the allegations. Commenting earlier on a Telegram channel, Larimer says:
“I can assure you block one wouldn’t be so stupid to spend our resources attacking etherum when all it takes is crypto kitties. There are far smarter and more cost effective ways at bringing etherum down if that were the goal.”
Though the congestion is coming from the time EOS transactions reached its highest volume. This is believed to the reason behind the accusations as no evidence was presented.
It took ethereum about three and half years to reach 500,000 transactions a day and the question asked now is who’s responsible for the EOS high transactions.
Yet we are to believe eos, which has been facing challenges after mainnet especially $30 ram fees, has in a week attracted so much demand.
