Is EOSIO centralized?

EOSIO is a network where the stake-holders have the authority to select node operators, as opposed to relying on proof-of-work-based mining collectives to confirm transactions. This distributes power amongst the token holders and aligns the interests of all parties involved. The number of node operators is determined by system architects, and may vary. The biggest difference between EOSIO and other blockchain protocols is how much we have decentralized the core concepts of EOSIO blockchains.
