Projects Moving to the EOS Ecosystem
Written by Dmitriy Perelstein - Senior Writer @ EOSwriter
Six months ago I published this article listing a number of Ethereum projects that either indicated their intention to move or that already moved to the EOS blockchain.
Several projects recently sprung up that facilitate the ETH to EOS transition. One of them is EOS21 from one of the EOSIO Block Producers shEOS. EOS21. ShEOS and another block producer, Cypherglass have indicated that they are willing to serve as a resource for any Ethereum projects that are willing to make the leap of faith to the “dark side” of EOS. If you are not satisfied with your projects development on the Ethereum blockchain, you should definitely consider utilizing these knowledgeable resources to learn more about the EOS ecosystem.
It’s been half a year since our last publication, which in blockchain terms might as well be a century. It’s time to update the list. This time I am going to not only look at the ETH projects migrating to EOS, but also add any other projects that have given EOS some love and indicated their intent to move from other blockchains.
A mobile forum management platform called Tapatalk recently announced that it will soon be integrating EOS blockchain technology in order to advance engagement incentives and monetization opportunities across tens of thousands of forums it helps operate. This is huge news for the EOS ecosystem due to Tapatalk’s sheer size - it reaches over 300 million users which will now be introduced to the EOS token.
Check out Cypherglass’s video for more details:
A decentralized network for AI, or artificial intelligence, Effect.AI was originally planned as a NEO project. However, recently the team announced that it will transition to the EOS blockchain. Here’s what they had to say about the transition:
When our team first discussed the requirements for The Effect Network, it quickly became apparent that we require a blockchain that is scalable, secure, and stable. At the time we made the decision to build on the NEO blockchain, as we felt it had a huge potential to become one of the best blockchains out there.
The major compelling technical reasons were: free transactions for end users, high transaction throughput, and multiple programming languages for smart contracts. However, in reality, things turned out differently and the current state of NEO is not up to speed with what we need to be able to build out our Network. NEO’s free transaction system for end users turned out not to be viable as they coped with multiple malicious spam attacks, the current state of the blockchain has a limited transaction throughput, and the smart contract compilers, besides C#, are quite immature.
Kyber network is a protocol that enables decentralized token swaps. Recently they announced a service called Waterloo bridge which serves as
an efficient and fully decentralized way to implement an EOS light client as an Ethereum smart contract, and an Ethereum light client as an EOS smart contract.
In simple terms it allows Ethereum projects to seamlessly transition to the EOS blockchain and vice versa. You can read a more detailed explanation on the Kyber blog or by listening to the Everything EOS podcast.
Name of the project - Waterloo bridge, named after the battle of Waterloo, which was the last battle of the great Napoleon in which he lost - is an interesting choice. Could it indicate the last battle for the Napoleon of crypto - Ethereum? Maybe I am just overthinking it.
Tixico is a platform that offers a solution for ticket sales. Tixico already had a successful case of ticket distribution via EOS. You can read about it here. Since then the company ran a couple of tests of the platform, the biggest one of them being Austras balva - and independent music award in Latvia which was our first sold-out event with close to 1000 attendees.
In late April/early May Tixico plans to have the first public release, where anyone will be able to sign up and use their ticketing platform for their events.
Havven, which is a payment network and a stablecoin announced in August of last year that it was coming to the EOS blockchain. They were not, however, abandoning Ethereum, but rather making their product more blockchain-agnostic.
The project has recently changed its branding, reemerged under a Synthetix and now positions itself as a platform that
enables the creation of on-chain synthetic assets (Synths) that track the value of assets in the real world. Some examples of assets that the platform supports are synthetic fiat currencies (sUSD, sAUD, sKRW, etc.), synthetic commodities such as gold (sXAU), as well as more complex assets such as equity indices.
There are quite a few projects that have made the transition. However, we as a community have an obligation to continue educating blockchain enthusiasts on the benefits of running their projects on EOSIO. If we can spread the word the amount of projects moving to EOS can increase substantially. Go EOS!
