EOS is a fast-growing blockchain that provides high transaction speed compared to competitors and has a built-in voting system. This makes developers a tempting platform for migrating existing decentralized products or creating new ones based on them from scratch. We selected ten of the most promising and original projects in order to show the current potential of this blockchain.
Some of the projects are already operational, others are in the alpha stage or have just been announced.
On June 1, authors of the EOSIO platform, Block.one CEO Brandon Blumer and CTO Dan Larimer presented their new product. In a presentation similar to Apple, Bloomer told the crowd: "Social media was not a good friend to us." And it’s hard to disagree: sorry, data collection, censorship and the general attitude towards the user as a product are the birthmarks of existing social networks.
According to Dan Larimer, who has already become one of the founders of blockchain-based Steemit in 2017, the new platform will provide users with privacy and data. The name of this future social network is Voice, and it will provide users with the ability to control their information with the help of internal tokens that are earned through posting and commenting. Now you can subscribe to the beta version.
Created by Sam Kazemyan, Theodore Forselius, Mahbod Moghadom, co-founder of text annotations and the Genius media site, and Larry Sanger, former co-founder of Wikipedia, Everipedia is the first encyclopedia based on blockchain in history. It has three stimuli:
- Decentralization with retrieving articles using IPFS and EOS storage.
- Democracy based on the Proof of Stake, which allows you to vote and change the network as it grows
- Resistance to censorship with the basic principle that there is no monopoly on editing content in the hands of some kind of central authority.
Network participants independently manage the platform and receive IQ tokens - Everipedia cryptocurrency, participating in content creation. You can post content on any topic if it is correctly quoted and written in a neutral tone. As Larry Sanger himself said: “Wikipedia deletes too many articles ... and after I left, the deletionists won; I have always been a "switch".
However, Everipedia includes everything that is on Wikipedia, and has much more convenient publishing rules. The project is fully operational, you can learn how to start using it. here .
Emanate claims to have led the music industry in the era of decentralization, using the EOS blockchain.
Essentially, she wants to make the $ 50 billion industry more transparent to all players, from listeners to artists and producers, offering them a platform for instant payments across borders and implementing DAO ecosystem management that will help simplify the complex rules of the modern music industry.
They have a detailed FAQ, explaining their plans and roadmap, which states that the alpha phase of the project is just around the corner.
Eva is a blockchain-based sharing application. It aims to eliminate traditional companies that unite the mobility economy. This is a cooperative whose main task is to develop new technologies for urban mobility. The platform they offer is a link between drivers and passengers.
“For the passenger, it’s the same price, but for the driver it’s profitable because we charge 15% of the fare, compared with 25% in Uber,” explains Dardan Isufi, co-founder and operations manager.
It offers drivers a more flexible and profitable model, while passengers do not lose any benefits that they use in Uber and other taxi services like this. And the bonus is that all their data and control over the interactions are on the blockchain, which means it is in their hands again.
Eva was launched in May 2019, and they are preparing to start their operations in Quebec in early July.
InSpace will finally bring to life our fantastic fantasies of the 80s: spatial, three-dimensional from a 2D network and desktop navigation, like on a futuristic spaceship!
This bold interface design solution provides the ability for truly spatial storage of files and folders. With it, the term "workspace" becomes more literal than ever.
There is little information about the project, but only a preview of its appearance made us consider it in this article. Currently, the project is in early alpha version, the full version is tentatively calculated for the 4th quarter of 2020.
The WordPress plugin allows users to create time stamps in the EOS blockchain. Content marked on the blockchain cannot be stolen or forged because you can track it accurately to the original publication.
The mission of the project is to help content creators become more transparent and increase the trust of their audience. The time stamp, which makes it almost impossible for others to state that they first published your stolen article, is a step in the right direction.
As the CEO of Block.one himself said: “In five years, if you don’t mark time in your articles on the blockchain, you will be considered a fraud.” And it's easier to start using it than most other EOS-based projects — you just need to install the plugin and open WordPress.
Another innovative blockchain solution - Bitez.io - claims to meet more everyday needs: they integrate product delivery into the EOS blockchain. “For all your food needs,” they say, and offer their solution to overcome the dependence of catering on middlemen and restaurant owners, reduce commission fees throughout the supply chain and simplify direct interaction between all interested parties.
If the product itself remains physical and centralized after the customer is delivered to the table - thank them!
KARMA is social media meant for good. Users are interested in doing good, sharing positive and cool content, and also getting KARMA when they voted for their content.
The essence of the KARMA belief system is that if the basic human needs are met, then our DNA interacts positively with each other. The EOSIO-based KARMA application wants to encourage users to do good in the world, rewarding them with other users who have voted for their posts using KARMA. KARMA creates a positive feedback loop between useful human interactions and a marked stimulus. So good deeds will finally be rewarded.
Karma has come a long way, has its own token, has been listed on exchanges and is fully operational since the end of 2018. The current version of KARMA is available for download in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
HireVibes is designed to connect job seekers, employers, referrers and recruiters on a new job search platform that uses the EOS blockchain.The basic idea is to disrupt the recruitment agencies as intermediaries, create a fair incentive model with a reasonable pay per hire and encourage HireVibes members for successful recruitment.
How they declare themselves:
“HireVibes expands the possibilities of a world in which people value more profit. We are the opposite of the current prevalent model of wealth accumulation. We believe that all people are equal and are entitled to the pursuit of happiness. That is why the HireVibes platform is designed to help you find the right job or hire the right person, as well as help each other.Help friends and colleagues in their job search with the help of referrals and give them to the world community - donation is done for a great cause every time someone is hired through the HireVibes platform. ”
You can post open positions on HireVibes for free, and employers can set their own level of remuneration (minimum 6% - maximum 12%).
When a candidate is hired through the HireVibes app:
- 3.5 (9.5% if employers choose a remuneration of 12%) is shared with the person hired for this role; If a colleague has sent a successful candidate, these 3.5% are divided equally between the inviting person and the hired person.
- 1% donated to charity ， a successful candidate can choose which humanitarian or environmental project he / she would like to support through the HireVibes Dapp app.
- 1.5% HVT reward for HireVibes DAC EOS account for community voting (for donation or for reward)
This model looks fruitful and may be a better solution than the current means of resuming spam when it comes to finding a job or employee.
According to HireVibes Roadmap, its full release is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2019, currently in Alpha.
The Free Republic of Liberland, a sovereign nation, founded on April 13, 2015, seeks to create an open source government and decided to use the EOSIO software as the basis for this. Well, for a nation that is located on the small floodplain of the Danube River, in the disputed territory between Croatia and Serbia, a good foundation is something of an essence.
But, in addition to the jokes, the very idea of a decentralized autonomous government, described in the article, is one of the most important fundamental concepts associated with technologies based on the blockchain. There is a voting system inside EOS, as well as on several other blockchains, and it is constantly being questioned and updated. The ability to test it in political management, even in micron, is an excellent opportunity to expand the horizons of future guidelines based on decentralization.
The Free Republic of Liberland recently published “ Roadmap for the next 12 months. The economy of Liberland will be based on Liberit Merit virtual currency (LLM). This will also be used as a voting tool. Another interesting thing about Liberland - taxation is voluntary. Citizens who decide to pay taxes become shareholders in the country.
As you can see, EOS provides many tools for creative developers, and although most of the crypto crowd moves around bulls and carriers, real creative minds silently work on big passionate projects that can one day make the world a better place or small that do it right now. In any case, as long as there are competing ideas challenging the status quo, the future is bright.
