Episode 25 of Blockchain Token covers EOS! In this series, we will cover the different types of blockchain platforms and cryptocurrencies on the market right now. We’ll give you a quick description of each blockchain/token, its function, who is their competition and where you can learn more.
EOS is a blockchain-based platform that aims to scale through reducing the computational demand placed on each node. Through implementing this process, EOS believes they can solve some of the scaling issues other blockchains have faced! Watch Disruption Joe as he breaks down the EOS project!
Heard of blockchain, but don’t know what it is? Blockchain technology is one of the hottest things going on in tech right now. Don’t get left behind! Watch Jeremy break down everything blockchain, including the problems the technology hopes to solves and how it will impact everyone’s daily lives! In this video, Jeremy goes over how blockchain technology was created, its potential, and how it can be implemented in an effective manner. Use cases involving blockchain technology are also explored. Check back for more videos on blockchain technology!

We also suggest checking out our “What is Decentralization?” guide and our “WTF is Cryptocurrency?” guide if you want to learn more about these technologies!
Ledger Nano S Review
If you’ve considered a cryptocurrency hardware wallet, then you’ve probably already come across the Ledger Nano S. And for good reason! The Nano S is the result of success of the original Ledger Nano. A screen and pair of buttons helps the user enter information on the device directly. But perhaps the most sought-after aspect of the Ledger Nano S is its multiple token support and attractive price. It is only $69 USD (about 58 euros) to top competitor Trezor’s $117 USD (about 99 euros).
Multiple token support
In the beginning, hardware wallets were primarily designed solely for use with Bitcoin. Even as alternative cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin started popping up, no hardware wallets were made to support this. Part of the problem is differing cryptographic algorithms. Ledger decided to solve with this with Ledger Blue and Ledger Nano S devices, which support apps. That’s right, the app model is now prevalent on our security devices!
