开发者和企业都关注EOSIO区块链协议的四大理由/Four Reasons Why Developers and Enterprises Are Looking at the EOSIO Blockchain Protocol

译文/Translated:

Block.one发布的EOSIO区块链协议才发表7个月,但是现在这个市场上最新的区块链软件解决方案中已经至少有260项目上线了

从EOSIO成立以来,越来越多的支付、社交、医疗、市场等项目在这个协议上线了

从区块链的应用角度来说,这有没有打破纪录确实不好说,但是从各个评判标准来说,至少这也是令人瞩目的记录。那么问题就来了:为什么?

区块链系统的优点已经被说了很多了。他们几乎都带来安全性、不可变性、可追溯性、和没有单点故障。这么多就够明显的了。

所以为什么人们选的是EOSIO而不是其他的呢?实际上,为什么在其它区块链上建立的去中心化应用为什么要转移到EOSIO呢?答案似乎在EOSIO提供的速度、成本、规模化、可持续性这四大方面的革新。

到目前为止,EOSIO是世界上最常用的区块链软件。上面搭载的所有应用都提供现实生活有用的服务。从叫车到分享音乐,从健康追踪到电子支付,EOSIO的应用都是更安全、更快速、更廉价的选择。正如智能合约交付平台Buddy的CEO Simon Szczepankowski 所言,“EOSIO美妙能够处理几千个交易,相应费用和确认次数都极低,所以它才成为下一代区块链的佼佼者。”

再分析了开发者和企业家的反馈之后,我们认为,应用建立在EOSIO上主要有以下四个原因:

1)它能规模化

EOS黑客马拉松香港站的参赛选手需要在EOSIO上建立可规模化采用的应用。

现存的一些区块链系统每秒平均只能处理15-20个交易,这就意味着它在现实生活中应用受到限制。比如,有些企业需要同时和几千个消费者完成交易,那么这个交易速度就不够了。但另一方面,EOSIO在公链上因为每秒能够处理超过4000个交易成为业界标杆,这个速度相当于它比最近的竞争对手要快2000倍——这还只是在公链上。随着EOSIO区块链的私人应用增加,它还可以利用最新的软件更新取得更快的速度。这样高速的系统对任何一个随时都需要处理几千份交易的企业来说都是很吸引人的。

2)它很快

相比在其它区块链平台期上的应用,EOSIO上的延迟率低得多。换言之,你不需要等几小时或者几分钟才能知道邮件发出去没有、钱付完了没有、菜点完了没有。通过利用EOSIO的引用,顾客和企业甚至不需要知道他们在用一个“区块链应用“;他们知道的是不管他们在什么交易中输入什么数据,这些交易都更加安全地进行,但速度相比正常的非区块链应用也是不遑多让的。游戏网络Azarus的创始人Alex Casassovici说,“通过EOSIO,用户可以利用区块链,但不需要知道它是怎么运行的。”而这就是大规模使用区块链科技的要点,因为它不需要损害任何用户觉得理所当然的特点,如速度和便捷,就可以加强区块链独特的好处。

3)它几乎是免费的

和其它区块链协议不同,EOSIO给消费者和开发者提供了一个更好的消费模型,因为它摒弃了交易费用。从消费者的角度来说,要使用第一代的区块链应用,他们每一笔交易都要花钱,但是EOSIO的应用是免费使用的。从开发者的角度来说,运营EOSIO网络的操作成本和维护传统服务器的成本差不多。

4)它是绿色的

关于区块链计数,最常听到的抱怨就是它有多贵和多不环保。确实,很多区块链平台需要巨大的电力运行电脑才能管理分布式数据库。实际上,运营比特币网络耗的电比新加坡和葡萄牙耗的还要多。

EOSIO确实一个更可持续的解决方案。和其它共识机制不同的是,委托证明(DPoS)模型不是能源密集型的模型,它能够让基于EOSIO的区块链网络更加快捷地使用电脑资源来确认交易,同时它还能提供一个分布式账本,提供区块链固有的利益。根据“社会企业区块生产这候选人“Genereos所言,EOSIO是比特币能源效率的66,000倍,是以太坊的17,000倍。

区块链如今被这样热情地讨论和期待是有原因的。它标志着下一代的技术进步,同时,虽然进展缓慢,但它一定是网络发展的新轨道,最终它能够改善我们做生意、分享信息和管理数据的方法。

从现在在EOSIO上开发应用的开发者来看,很明显的是它正在给规模化、成本、速度和可持续性问题提供了一个解决方案,这是过去没有做到的。

原文/Original:

It has only been seven months since the launch of the EOSIO blockchain protocol published by Block.one, but today there are at least 260 projectsbeing built on one of the newest blockchain software solutions in the market.

Since EOSIO’s inception, more projects in payments, social network, healthcare, marketplace etc. have been building on the protocol

It is unclear whether this is a record in terms of adoption in blockchain, but by any objective measure it looks impressive. The obvious question is: why?

The attractions of blockchain systems are well documented. They almost all offer security, immutability, traceability and no single point of failure. That much is evident.

So why are people choosing EOSIO, rather than any other alternative? Indeed, why are decentralized blockchain applications built on other blockchains migrating to EOSIO?

The answer seems to be in the radical improvements in speed, cost, scalability and sustainability that EOSIO offers.

To date, EOSIO is the most used blockchain software in the world. All the applications that are being built on it offer services with real-world utility. And from ride-hailing to music sharing, fitness tracking to digital payment, EOSIO apps have emerged as the safer, faster and cheaper alternative. As Simon Szczepankowski, CEO of the smart contract delivery platform Buddy, commented, “EOSIO, with its ability to process thousands of transactions per second, and its minimal associated fees and confirmation times, is the best next-generation blockchain.”

After analyzing feedback from developers and entrepreneurs, below are the four reasons why applications are being built on EOSIO:

1) It’s scalable

Participants at the EOS Hackathon in Hong Kong were challenged to create scalable applications on EOSIO

Some existing blockchain systems process transactions at an average speed of 15–20 transactions per second. This means it has only limited real world usage. For businesses that need to transact with thousands of customers simultaneously, for example, this transaction speed is insufficient. EOSIO, on the other hand, has been benchmarked to process over 4,000 transactions per second on its public blockchain, which means that it is 200 times faster than its closest competitor — and that’s just the public network. With private implementations of the EOSIO blockchain, it can achieve even higher speeds with recent software updates. For any business that needs to process thousands of transactions at any given time, having a system that works at these speeds becomes very attractive.

2) It’s fast

Applications built on EOSIO have much lower latency than those on other blockchain platforms. In other words, you won’t have to wait hours or even minutes to know if your email was sent, your payment was processed, or your food order actually went through. By using EOSIO apps, consumers and enterprises do not even need to know that they’re using a ‘blockchain app’; all they know is that whatever data they have inputted for any transaction is more secure but no slower than your normal, non-blockchain app. In the words of Alex Casassovici, founder of the gaming network Azarus, “With EOSIO, users can interact with the blockchain without having to know how it works.” This is key to driving mass adoption of blockchain technology, as it amplifies the unique benefit of blockchain without compromising existing conditions that all users take for granted, such as speed and convenience.

3) It’s virtually free

Unlike other blockchain protocols, EOSIO offers a more favorable cost model for consumers and developers, as it eliminates the need for transaction fees. From a consumer standpoint, whereas individual users have to pay per transaction in order to use first-generation blockchain apps, EOSIO apps are free to use. From a developer standpoint, the operating cost of running an EOSIO network is akin to that of maintaining a traditional server.

4) It’s green

One of the most common complaints you hear about blockchain technology is just how expensive and environmentally-unfriendly it is. Indeed, a lot of blockchain platforms require a substantial amount of electricity to run the computers needed to manage the distributed database. In fact, it takes more electricity to operate the Bitcoin network than Singapore or Portugal.

EOSIO is a far more sustainable solution. Contrary to other consensus mechanisms, the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) model is not energy-intensive, as it enables EOSIO-based blockchain networks to use computer resources to confirm transactions more efficiently, all the while maintaining a distributed ledger that provides all the inherent advantages of blockchain. According to calculations conducted by “social enterprise block producer candidate” Genereos, EOSIO is 66,000 times more energy efficient than Bitcoin and 17,000 times more energy efficient than Ethereum.

There is a reason that blockchain is being debated with such fervor and anticipation today. It heralds the next generation of technological progress, and will slowly but surely become the new rails of the internet, ultimately improving the way we conduct business, share information, and manage data.

From the evidence of take up and progress being made by developers building on the EOSIO network, it seems clear that it is offering a solution to the issues of scale, cost, speed and sustainability, which has not been available before.
