The EOSIO software, which the EOS Network was built upon, was developed by the company and architected by Daniel Larimer.

In June 2018, the EOS blockchain was launched by a decentralized group of block producers (BPs) who bootstrapped the network based on a token distribution snapshot from's ICO.

On August 25, 2021 consensus was reached by EOS block producers to fund the EOS Network Foundation (ENF), which was launched by Yves La Rose.

The EOS Network Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that coordinates financial and non-financial support to encourage the growth and development of the EOS Network. The ENF is the hub of the EOS Network, harnessing the power of decentralization as a force for positive global change to chart a coordinated future for EOS.
