EOS Celebrates its Second Birthday

It’s been two years since the launch of the EOS Mainnet – and what a wild ride it’s been!

The pace of innovation in this space has been mind boggling. So much so, that it feels like a blur and is easy to forget what we’ve accomplished as a community in such a short time.

So to celebrate, let’s take a short pause to look back and appreciate how far we’ve come with a week-by-week look at everything that happened on EOS from June 2019 to May 2020.  

          June 2019

Technical note regarding EOS’ actual birth date: June 1st is the 2nd anniversary of the EOSIO 1.0 release. The first block on the EOS Mainnet was produced by the Appointed Block Producer (APB) on June 8, 2018, at 8:08AM 8.888 seconds. The “go vote” was obtained on June 9, 2018, at 01:00 UTC. The Mainnet was launched on June 10, 2018, at 13:00 UTC and the chain hit 15% voting (it’s own metric for official activation) on June 14th, 2018.
