Designed for commercial decentralized applications (DApps), EOSIO is a Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) based blockchain system. It has overcome some shortages of the traditional blockchain systems like Bitcoin and Ethereum with its outstanding features (e.g., free for usage, high throughput and eco-friendly), and thus becomes one of the mainstream blockchain systems. Though there exist billions of transactions in EOSIO, the ecosystem of EOSIO is still relatively unexplored. To fill this gap, we

We obtain some novel observations via graph metric analysis, and our results reveal some abnormal phenomenons like voting gangs and sham transactions.
