EOS has "free transactions".
To prevent spam, you have to "stake" EOS for a few days, and the more EOS you stake, the more transactions you can make. At the moment, someone's staked a shitload of EOS, so they can spam the network, which means you need to stake a signifcant fraction of that to send any transactions at all.
The consensus, as you can imagine, is "This is good for EOS". There are loads of posts celebrating how many (spam) transactions the network can manage, whilst no-one can afford any actual transactions, even the transactions needed to unstake the EOS so they can sell it.
Wait, so you buy the coin, then stake the coin to transact the coin?

Jesus christ, fucking really? Some dude is actually defending them, saying that it's a mechanism to force you to hold.
