The Week in EOS.

Happy New Year, everyone!
2019 is promising to be a very interesting year for EOS. We’re working on a longer post outlining our predictions for EOS in 2019, but there are a few things we’re especially looking forward to: REX going live, the first referendum, the first dApp releases from Block.one, Mythical Games’ launch, and quite a few others.
One trend that we’re curious to watch is dApps that have seen some success on Ethereum being ported to or replicated on EOS. There are quite a few highly interesting dApps in the deFi, NFT, gaming, and gambling space that have seen some success on Ethereum but have been limited due to performance issues. Many analysts posited that certain classes of dApps would never work on EOS– that they required ultra-decentralization that was only offered by Ethereum.
I, on the other hand, have long had a theory that EOS is decentralized enough to support a lot of these use cases, while also offering greater performance and higher levels of usability. As a result, I think there’s a big opportunity for some of those dApps to benefit greatly from being built on EOS. But what I love most about this trend is that it will offer a real-world test of the hypothesis around the scalability/decentralization/usability tradeoffs we see in the space. While debating these ideas on Twitter and Telegram can be fun, it’s a lot cooler to watch them get reality-tested in real time!
In an open-source world, it may be a lot harder for some of these projects to create a competitive moat. What remains to be seen is whether the teams themselves will offer their projects on both Ethereum and EOS (as Synthetix, formerly Havven, has done) or whether new teams will simply copy ideas from one chain to the other. Either way, it’s a trend worth watching closely.
