Block.one is a software publisher specializing in high performance blockchain technologies. Its first project, EOSIO, an open-source blockchain protocol designed to enable secure data transfer and high-performance decentralized applications, has received global recognition as the first performant blockchain platform for developers, following its introduction in May 2017.
Block.one is lead by CEO Brendan Blumer and CTO Daniel Larimer. Larimer is the inventor of the revolutionary Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS) consensus mechanism. DPOS processes the majority of blockchain transactions globally and powers the EOSIO software launched in June 2018.
