There is currently probably only couple of dramas in the world that take place 24/7 and that are more interesting than crypto world. There is constantly either FOMO or FUD or to a smaller degree actual news with substance. We will cover some actual news and some FUD around EOS (what else is there to report when it comes to this coin – there is constant more or less justified FUD around this Ethereum competitor).
What you'll learn 👉
StellarX, fee-less DEX is ready for an official launch
Company Interstellar, a subsidiary of Stellar Foundation, announced that their testing phase is over and that the DEX is ready for an official launch. Although die-hard decentralization fans will find a lot to hate about this “fake” DEX, it is still a step in the right direction. The exchange is just an interface that enables users to interact with Stellar marketplace. Via Stellar integration with Changelly, you can also buy coins with fiat on the platform.
All the assets that can be traded on StellarX, except XLM coins, are actually tethered assets traded via 3rd party providers that guarantee to give you actual coins if you choose to withdraw them. The withdrawal takes place, however, on the websites of the providers, not on StellarX.
Trust Wallet added support for VeChain
One of the top cryptocurrency trading exchanges, Binance bought Trust Wallet. Before this acquisition, Trust Wallet was an anonymous platform that was not too known in the crypto circles. After adding leading cryptocurrencies, they have announced addition of VeChain. Trust Wallet will incorporate some other coins and tokens in the future. These upcoming tokens to be incorporated include some of the most popular cryptos of the moment like the king itself Bitcoin (BTC), Tron (TRX) and NEO.
EOS block producers accused of colluding
Maple Leaf Capital (@MapleLeafCap), recently revealved that “an internal excel document from Huobi”, one of the biggest EOS block producers, had been “running rounds in the Chinese community.” According to MapleLeafCap, the excel file reveals the “collusion, mutual voting, and payoffs” that take place between Chinese block producers (BP).
He went on to provide some proofs for his claims in form of screenshots, excel sheets and similar. EOS opponents relished the opportunity to hate on the ever controversial Ethereum competitor. Below are his tweets, very speculative claims but also not too surprising since EOS is by design a fertile soil for collusion and cartel forming.
In allegation 1, Huobi votes for 20 other BPs candidates where 16 of those vote for Huobi as well. As you can see in the image attached to this tweet. pic.twitter.com/VBfFyjWyxU
