EOS was perhaps one of the most exciting projects when it started in the year 2017. Block.one, the company behind the project collected $4 billion during its ICO and hopes where really high that EOS was going to become the rising star in the crypto universe. Fate had other plans for both the company and the EOS token. For the last two years it became more and more silent around EOS and its development.
What has changed around EOS and what holds near future for this particular project?
The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) is one of the core pieces of the Ethereum blockchain. It is often referred to as the global decentralized super-computer that allows the execution of smart contracts. These smart contracts are written in Solidity and most blockchain developers are used to the environment and the programming language of the EVM.
This is why the EVM became important to EOS because its integration basically allows easier development of smart contracts and even an integration of existing smart contracts. In other words, it makes EOS compatible with an already battle proven system that is needed to create Web3 applications on top of the EOS blockchain.
If it weren’t for that integration developers would need to rewrite their work in C++ from scratch. By integrating the so-called Trust EVM the EOS blockchain is opting for an industry standard.
The EOS Network Foundation (ENF) did pride itself via Twitter and according to a press release the Trust EVM will support more than 10.000 transactions per seconds and will have a block time of 0,5 seconds. The EVM itself will act as a smart contract on EOS.
The ENF took the project over from Block.one and aims to change EOS into a Web3 power-house. That being said, EOS is not the only player on the field. It remains to be seen if the Trust EVM will keep the promises that have been made.
Solana can handle up to 65.000 tp/s but currently supports somewhere between 2.000 and 3.000 transactions per second on average and the network went down repeatedly when it came under heavy load. Should EOS succeed in presenting a fast and reliable solution with its DPOS consensus mechanism, the market could indeed become more interesting. Many experts believe that DeFi and Game-Fi are both the future for blockchain technology and speed as well as scalability is exactly what is needed to drive more adoption in both fields.

Yesterday, Uniswap launched the option to trade NFTs on its platform. Uniswap will be an aggregator: it lists NFTs from all major marketplaces, including OpenSea and LooksRare. Uniswap claims its NFT marketplace is up to 15% cheaper in gas fees compared to other NFT aggregators.

Fantom is not only a cryptocurrency, but its development is run by a foundation under the same name. The founder of this trust is Andre Cronje, who is perhaps one of the most influential figures in the DeFi space. Recently, he revealed the financial status of the Fantom Foundation and this had quite some impact on the market.

One after another major player in the crypto world toppled over since spring 2022. Crypto exchange FTX was the latest (for now?). Crypto prices took a nosedive during this period. Are we at the end or could some more corpses fall out of the closet?

When exchange FTX crashed in the second week of November, Solana had a million dollars in cash on there. Hardly a sum to lose sleep over: according to Solana, it's less than one percent of their reserves. But still, the entanglement of FTX and Solana makes one wonder: does this spell insurmountable trouble? Or will Solana pull through, which would imply it is a great time for investors to stack some SOL?
