I don’t know a lot about NEO either.
I think one of the biggest advantages EOS is going to have over NEO is the 1 billion$ war chest set aside to fund Dapps to be implemented in the EOS ecosystem.
Basically block.one is going to be like a VC firm and fund the most promising projects to be built on EOS. Even some of the biggest VC firms don’t do 1 billion a year in funding. It’s a great idea to launch EOS while having many working Dapps at launch of the platform.
As far as security is concerned, I am not really familiar with NEO, but I don’t think bitshares has ever had a problem with the network not functioning like it should due to DPOS. I could be wrong though. I am confident if there was a better system Dan would have used it.
EOS will also have much broader distribution than EOS. From looking at the wallets (from another posts on this forum), I don’t think anyone has more than a 1% stake in EOS. I doubt that distribution exists in any other crypto out there today, but again I could be wrong.
