Introduction to EOS
EOS, the Entrepreneurial Operating System, is a public blockchain system developed by Block.One. The core developer of EOS is BM (Daniel Larimer).
EOS has gained notable attention from the blockchain industry since it was born. As a public blockchain project, EOS is very different from Bitcoin and Ethereum in terms of design model and technical implementation. And it aims to achieve performance expansion of distributed applications. Learn More
An EOS wallet is an application that can easily save and send EOS, and at the same time can interact with the applications built on EOS through the wallet.
🔸 Before creating a wallet, please learn how to backup your wallet
The easiest way to get EOS is to buy. There are many digital currency exchanges on the market where EOS can be purchased, but users need to choose the preferred exchange according to the location and payment method.
🔸 Exchanges that support the purchase of EOS
You may want to obtain EOS through token exchange. Most exchanges on the market support EOS trading. You can choose a decentralized exchange or a centralized exchange according to your needs.
🔸 Decentralized Exchange Tokenlon
Tokenlon is a decentralized exchange powered by 0x protocol. It aims to offer a seamless trading experience with fast speed, competitive price and more token options. The trading tokens are completely controlled by users, and you can use Tokenlon to quickly complete currency exchange without topping up or withdrawing.
🔸 Centralized Exchange
The exchange acts as a custodian to provide a valuable service with liquidity, featuring low learning costs and high matching efficiency.
EOS transfer is very different from traditional bank transfer in a centralized world. Now you need to understand the EOS transfer mechanism and the situations you may encounter.
You may wonder, does EOS transfer require no miner fees? Why do I get a “Insufficient resources" reminder when transferring money? This part will be introduced in detail in the next module “EOS Resource Management”.
🔸 How to transfer money without mapping on EOS mainnet
EOS Resource Management
EOS users need to stake or rent resources to obtain the right to use the EOS network. The EOS resources include: RAM, CPU, and NET.
RAM may be consumed while transferring, purchasing resources, staking, reclaiming, voting, etc. And RAM must be obtained through purchase. You can now buy and sell RAM resources through imToken, and obtain CPU and NET resources by staking.

EOS uses the DPoS consensus mechanism, which elects 21 super nodes through community voting to maintain the EOS network, and provides computational power, bandwidth, and storage support for the EOS network.
The EOS block explorer is a website where you can check EOS blocks, transactions, EOS tokens, wallet addresses and other information. It updates all EOS node information in real time.
