EOS – State of Onboarding - January 9

This is going to be a shorter summary, as over the holiday and given the tight crypto winter, not much has happened. And as regards technical considerations i have adressed in a recent more longer term article: EOS Peeking under the hood (so if you are interested, read on there).

So let’s take a look at the raw data. For one, the account snapshot provided by EOS New York: As of yesterday there were 643195 accounts created:

I believe it is a perfect indicator what promising dapps will be able to accomplish. The choice still might be quite limited, but there are now a few really intriguing things coming out, which  eventually might stirr the onboarding we are hoping for, maybe it will be more on the gaming side, but things like karma, do off...
