EOS Initial Coin Offering (ICO) has been running for the longest time unlike most ICOs that last only a few months. The network decided to run their ICO differently from the summer of 2017 to June 1 2018 before the launch of EOSIO. EOS project has collected over $2 billion in form of Ether since the beginning of the ICO. The platform has been praised for being able to support the next-generation of smart contracts. A report from Multicoin Capital and Block.one say that the platform is faster, provides an affordable means of executing smart contracts as opposed to the obvious rivals, NEO and Ethereum. Multicoin wrote in reference to EOS platform:
“EOS takes a unique approach to creating a highly scalable platform for smart contracts. EOS prioritizes scalability and end-user experience rather than maximal censorship resistance.”
