The TPS of Ethereum network is about 15/tps and EOS claims that it can achieve millions of TPS through parallel threading and other technology. My understanding is that every EOS transaction will be eventually saved to Ethereum network as Ethereum block. If Ethereum can only handles 15TPS, how come EOS can make it into millions of TPS? With thousands of concurrent parallel threads? Please share your thoughts.

    They're moving to their own network using a more centralised consensus engine. The high throughput you mention won't be on the Ethereum network. – Richard Horrocks May 21 '18 at 20:42
  • Richard Horrocks, I know EOS uses a type of POS consensus algorithm which is much faster than POW. But unless EOS batch process its transactions on Ethereum main chain, I did not see/understand how EOS can be that faster. – user938363 May 21 '18 at 22:08
  • The main point is that it won't be using the Ethereum main chain, it will be using its own chain. – Richard Horrocks May 22 '18 at 6:44

Though the EOS erc20 token lives on the Ethereum network, EOS will launch their own, separate blockchain. After that point, I don't believe any interaction between the two chains has been planned.

The EOS erc20 was/is purely for fund raising purposes
