EOS is a utility token based on the ERC-20 Ethereum protocol. As such, it’s supported by wallets and exchanges that support ERC-20 tokens. It’s also easily exchanged OTC for ETH.
Wallets that support EOS include Infinito Wallet (mobile), SimplEOS Wallet (desktop), and Scatter Wallet (web).
The EOS token can’t be mined, and it does not have “any rights, uses, purpose, attributes, functionalities, or features, express or implied, including, without limitation, any uses, purpose, attributes, functionalities or features on the EOS Platform.”
Of course, we know that’s bullshit, because EOS is used by dApps as a staking mechanism. The amount of resources allocated to a dApp are proportionate to the EOS staked, but a user account can operate the dApp without spending EOS.
As an ERC-20 token, it also inherits a delegated Proof-of-Stake consensus.
EOS is accepted on a variety of cryptocurrency exchange markets, including DOBI trade, Bithumb, IDAX, Binance, Bitfinex, HitBTC, and Huobi. Over $370 million is traded on a daily basis, and trading pairs include BTC, USDT, and ETH.
