The following is an overview of a 3 part guide designed to help introduce, educate and complete the on-boarding of new users to the EOS blockchain.
There are 3 main stages a potential EOS user must progress through.
If you know someone who is interested in EOS you can use this overview to make a determination as to what stage they are in and share/link them to the appropriate article.
Let’s work together to grow the EOS community!
It is not enough to just wait around for the “Killer DApp” to lead us to mass adoption.
Another thing to keep in mind is a user who simply signs up to a particular DApp is not as important to the overall ecosystem as someone who truly understands and uses the EOS blockchain. We need educated EOS users who understand the fundamentals behind EOS/blockchain technology, know how to vote and what all this means for the future of our society.
This is how we will reach mass adoption.
Below is a summery of each stage with links to the corresponding articles.
What is EOS? - Stage 1 of 3
The majority of the general population do not have a clue what EOS is...
They have most likely heard of Bitcoin but don’t understand how a blockchain fundamentally works. This is key because until someone understands how the technology behind Bitcoin actually works they will most likely be under the impression that it’s some kind of “ponzi scheme” or “fake money” and hence will not take it seriously.

Why EOS? - Stage 2 of 3
Once the potential EOS user has a basic understanding of what EOS is the next question they will most likely ask is “Why EOS?”
As we all know there’s a multitude of reasons why EOS is head and shoulders above other cryptocurrencies, we cover them all in detail.

How to use EOS - Stage 3 of 3
Now comes the most important stage of the entire process, the conversion of a potential EOS user into a measurable, valuable member of the EOS community.
Here we guide the potential user through the process of purchasing EOS tokens, opening an account, using a DApp for the first time and voting on the EOS blockchain.
It is of great importance that the potential user has taken in and understood stages 1 & 2 as they will be far more likely to put in the time and effort to sit down and actually learn how to use EOS once they understand the fundamentals.

Why did I create this guide?
I saw the need for a tool which guides and educates people interested in EOS through the entire on-boarding process.
We need a comprehensive, easy to understand, up to date guide which is on hand to share with any potential users whenever the moment arises.
I will be updating this guide as I become aware of new technologies/methods which improve the on-boarding process, I encourage you all to keep me up to date with any developments, give me feedback and pull me up on any mistakes. I hope we can work together to create something of value here for the EOS community.
It is you the EOS community who has inspired me to create this website and continue to help grow the EOS ecosystem. Thank you for all the support and GO EOS!
