EOSIO functions as a platform for smart contracts, thus allowing dApps to operate effectively. However, since its creation, EOS has attracted criticism due to its problematic model for governance. Dan Larimer has also stated that decentralization is not their area of focus, earning the wrath of many investors.
Most notably, the co-founder of Wikipedia has expressed his grievances on Twitter:
We cannot continue to build dapps on EOS if the network is de facto centralized in the hands of the Chinese.
I’ve been making noise internally at EP about this since I learned about it earlier this summer.
Sorry, but it can’t go on much longer, as far as I’m concerned. https://t.co/oUe2qvcjQM

The CIO of Everipedia has since stated that they “are committed to staying with EOS” via a separate tweet.
The voting system is a matter of concern. Brendan Blumer of EOS.IO wishes to incorporate a “one token, one vote” method. Due to the nature of such controversies, the score linked to EOS by Weiss Ratings has been declining with the passage of time.
