IOST Records More Transactions than Ethereum One Month After Mainnet Launch
IOST is an application-friendly next generation public blockchain network which is reported to be the first platform to launch an application-ready mainnet which features multiple live DApps (Decentralized Applications). IOST project’s software modules, as claimed by the management team, have been implemented using blockchain technology and they provide “secure and reliable data” as they “prevent tampering by third parties.” and thus, the IOST platform having been built on public blockchain infrastructure, allows “decentralized application developers overcome some of the most challenging problems with mass adoption.”
IOST is one of the most scalable blockchain networks. Although, its design principles are similar to some of the other leading dApp creation platforms, it has its own consensus protocol, known as “proof-of-believability.” Notably, the programming languages and development environments supported by the various dApp deployment platforms are a lot different from each other such as Ethereum, Tron, EOS, NEO etc. as each use different consensus algorithms such as proof-of-work (PoW), proof-of-stake (PoS), delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS), and delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance (dBFT).
According to a news outlet, On April 6th, 2019,”the IOST network reportedly processed more transactions than Ethereum ( ETH ). Noting that Ethereum is the world’s largest blockchain-based platform for deploying decentralized applications (dApps), however, “IOST was able to register 580,231 transactions on its network while Ethereum only managed to log 558,272 transactions on the same day (April 6th).”
As contained in IOST’s press release, the smart contract development platform has achieved the following after “the first month of its mainnet launch:”
- Registered [over] 213,000 live accounts on its network, with an average of 15,000 wallets added per day
- Launched 9 dApps, including 6 games (one of which hit 700 million IOST tokens in a single day) and a USD-pegged stablecoin
- Been listed and traded on 26 exchanges
- Processed more than 25 million transactions, including a peak of 580,231 transactions per day
- Brought more than 100 partners and developers onboard to build the IOST ecosystem, all partners totalling to more than 200 today
EOS AND XRP MAINTAINS A POSITIVE PRICE MOVEMENT AMIDST BITHUMB HACK
The cryptocurrency market is yet to experience yet another bubble. Some experts believe it will happen again before the market stablilizes. Some other analysts claims the market has settled and can be driven positively again through active development of products to cover the cryptocurrency use case.
Though looking at the state of the cryptocurrency market. The adoption of cryptocurrency is going positive but the number of active traders is decreasing because many traders seems to be holding. The price of XRP and EOS goes against each other. While XRP is gaining a minimal stable increase in Price. EOS has been at its bear level for a long while as against XRP. The use case offered by EOS is quite welcoming and growing rapidly but still yet it’s not impacting on the price movement.
Considering the high vulnerability of the EOS Blockchain. This might have probabaly affected the price. Too many major set backs have being recorded upon using the EOS Blockchain. Many users have complained of the poor user friendliness of the EOS Blockchain. Moreso, the transaction reversing feature of the Blockchain has more or less helped to mitigate against hacks.
Though the said feature also suggests that the EOS Blockchain is not decentralised, the adoption of the EOS Blockchain has been tremendous. From the recent Bithumb hack in May, EOS and XRP were the two cryptocurrencies affected.
EOS had a 11.45% sharp drop in price against Bitcoin few hours after the news dropped. XRP on the other hand wasn’t affected much in price. The XRP price has still gained 0.55% in USD value, but lost 0.05% over Bitcoin. The price of XRP seems to be more stable at $0.3. EOS has $4,126,251,897 in total marketcap with a daily trading volume of $2,735,279,072. XRP has $13,724,796,558 in total marketcap with $1,459,156,919 daily trading volume. XRP has a far high total market cap compared to EOS but a lesser daily trading volume. While XRP is losing 6.35% to bitcoin and gaining 5.5% to USD. EOS is losing 4.28% to bitcoin and gaining 8.5% to USD. This equally suggests that EOS has a better daily trading volume as against XRP.
Though the EOS downtrend has been so for a long time now. XRP has a better price statistics as against EOS. There is yet no future guarantee as to whether the price of both cryptocurrencies will be increasing any time soon. Bitcoin which is the base cryptocurrency has been on a better ground with a good uptrend through the week.
The Bithumb hack didn’t really affect the price momentum of both cryptocurrencies as the price recovered back hours after the sharp drop. But in the long run. EOS may or not be at a lesser preference to XRP. XRP which has been opposed by the cryptocurrency community as a centralised blockchain. XRP more or less has a better adoption by authorities in comparison to EOS. While EOS has a better adoption by community users in comparison to XRP.
