EOS is a blockchain platform for the development of decentralized applications (dapps), similar to Ethereum in function. In fact, supporters have dubbed it the Ethereum killer. It makes dapp development easy by providing an operating-system-like set of services and functions that dapps can make use of.
The idea behind EOS is to bring together the best features and promises of the various smart contract technologies out there (e.g. security of Bitcoin, computing support of Ethereum). Simply put, the EOS community is working to provide one simple to use, massively scalable dapp platform for the everyday user.
The company is led by Dan Larimer (co-founder of both Bitshares and Steemit) and Brendan Bloomer. Both provide some serious experience in the crypto world and have been publicly active in promoting the technology as a whole in addition to their own projects.EOS WhitePaper
Monero is the leading cryptocurrency with a focus on private and censorship-resistant transactions.
Most existing cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, have transparent blockchains, meaning that transactions are openly verifiable and traceable by anyone in the world. Furthermore, sending and receiving addresses for these transactions may potentially be linkable to a person's real-world identity.
Every Monero transaction, by default, obfuscates sending and receiving addresses as well as transacted amounts. This always-on privacy means that every Monero user's activity enhances the privacy of all other users, unlike selectively transparent cryptocurrencies (e.g. Z-Cash).
What Is A Hard Fork?
A hard fork is when a single cryptocurrency splits in two. It occurs when a cryptocurrency’s existing code is changed, resulting in both an old and new version. This case is somewhat unique, whereby XMR and EOS were co-forked into MonerEOS (XME).
When Was The Hard Fork?
Snapshot Date: 5th of April, 2019 20:00 UTC
Snapshot Blocks: XMR block number 1806599 and EOS block number 51,419,304
Mainnet Launch: April 8, 2019
Can I claim my XME?
When the hard fork took place, a snapshot of all existing XMR and EOS holdings occured. Anyone holding XMR or EOS in a wallet or supported exchange has been credited MonerEOS (XME) at a 1:1 ratio for Monero(XMR) and 20:1 ratio for EOS.
For example, if you held 26 XMR and 380 EOS, you would receive 45 XME.
