One of the key drivers for mass cryptocurrency adoption is usability.

Ethereum and EOS are two of the world's most prominent blockchain projects at the time of writing. While Ethereum wants to decentralise world computing, EOS's target is to run fast decentralised applications (dApps). To achieve these goals, each protocol uses a different consensus algorithm and a different governance model. Ethereum has a strong focus on decentralisation at its core, while EOS provides speed by removing some of its decentralised features. At the end of the day, depending on the purpose, both projects have their pros and cons. In this article, I will dive deeper into each cryptocurrency protocol individually and compare them both in terms of security, scalability, and decentralisation - the three core aspects of any blockchain.
