EOS is a platform and blockchain network that was created for decentralized applications that are built on Ethereum. EOS is designed to perform similar functions to Ethereum but at a significantly higher capacity of as much as millions of transactions each second. The year-long ICO for EOS raised $4 billion, and the token’s price history on most websites begins on July 1, 2017.
Current Price and Crucial Figures
To put the following information about the EOS price history in context, consider the cryptocurrency’s current value and other figures. At the time of writing, CoinMarketCap lists EOS at $2.73 USD or 0.00066912 BTC. It is ranked sixth, and there is a total supply of 1 billion EOS with a circulating supply of 906.2 million. The 24-hour volume is $1.2 billion with a market cap of $2.5 billion USD.
As mentioned, the price history of EOS begins in July 2017. On July 1, 2017, EOS started at $1.03. Right away, however, the price spiked, hitting $5.09 on July 3. This early excitement was followed by an adjustment, with the price of EOS dropping with a few peaks and valleys along the way. These included $3.92 followed by $4.68, then $3.31, all on July 3. The following day saw it at $3.86 before dropping to $3.04 and back up to $3.52 before dropping to $2.82 on July 5. After a new peak of $3.47 that day, the value of EOS dropped a bit more steadily, reaching $1.56 on July 10 and having a quick uptick to $2.04 on July 12 before another slight drop, but at a fairly steady rate.
Steady in Mid-Late 2017
After those initial price fluctuations from EOS, the cryptocurrency’s value remained more or less steady for the next few months, although it did drop slightly in early September. From then until late October or early November, the value of EOS remained around $0.50 to $0.70, or so.
Steady Climb in Late 2017
At this point, EOS began to steadily climb. On Nov. 3, it was at $1.25 and remained between $0.90 and $1.10 or so until about Nov. 12. At this point, EOS began a steady climb, getting to $1.97 by Nov. 25 before jumping up to $3.33 on Nov. 29. After a small dip, it went up to $3.93 on Dec. 2 and $4.86 on Dec. 6. There was a dip down to $3.55 on Dec. 9 before a sharp rise in the EOS price history.
Late 2017 and Early 2018 Highs
This sharp rise had several ups and downs along the way, going up to $12.06 on Dec. 20 before correcting to $7.69 on Dec. 24. From there, EOS reached $10.53 on Dec. 27 before going back to $8.61 on Dec. 31. This was followed by new peaks at $11.26 on Jan. 4, 2018 and $12.48 on Jan. 7. The high point for EOS in early 2018 was on Jan. 13 when it hit $16.36. There was a sharp correction on Jan. 16 down to $11.28 before it went back up to $14.16 on Jan. 20 and stayed in that area for just over a week.
From this point until around April, investors in EOS did not see much excitement. The price dropped a bit, remaining between $8 and $10 until early March, then hitting a low of $4 on March 18. From there, it rose and stayed between $5 and $7 until April.
The next big news for the EOS price history came in May and June, when it experienced another price spike. Starting at $5.87 on April 9, EOS reached $9.03 by April 13 before rising all the way to $20.98 on April 29. This is the all-time high for EOS so far.
At this point, the dramatic increase in the value of EOS made headlines in the cryptocurrency world, although its price changes were not alone. In fact, in early-mid April, the top 10 cryptocurrencies all saw upticks in their prices, although EOS did lead the pack. On April 11, EOS had climbed 18.27 percent since the previous day alone. Experts were unsure what led to this spike but thought it may be related to rumors of an airdrop. By contrast, the increases of other cryptocurrencies’ values at the time were much more modest, only up to 6.4 percent.
Unsurprisingly, the spike was followed by a slight correction, but EOS remained high compared to its previous prices. Other notable high points in the next few weeks included $18.50 on May 10, $15.04 on June 3, and $14.37 on June 9, all of which had dips between them.
Second Half of 2018
Following those highs in May, EOS stayed between about $7 and $10.30 until early August. At this point, the prices began fluctuating between $4.80 and $6.70, with some variations, until mid-November.
Most recently, the price of EOS did drop slightly, down to $1.69 on Dec. 7, 2018. Since that point, EOS has risen slightly once again, up to its value at the time of writing of $2.73.
Patterns with EOS Pricing in Terms of BTC
The overall trends for EOS price history in terms of BTC are nearly identical to those of EOS in terms of USD, but to a different degree. The initial spike in the value of EOS, for example, was much more dramatic for BTC than USD. On July 1, 2017, EOS was worth 0.00042625 BTC, which went all the way up to 0.00181076 BTC on July 3, a much larger percentage increase than the one in terms of USD. Compared to USD prices, the spike for BTC price of EOS was smaller in January 2018 but slightly larger in April 2018.
What to Do with the EOS Price History
Those who are familiar with cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrency trading can use their knowledge of the EOS price history to identify current trends and make predictions for the future. There are multiple ways to analyze the information, especially if you also look at the EOS price in terms of BTC instead of just in terms of USD.
