Moonlighting is getting funding from Block.one's venture arm to port its users' profiles over to the EOS blockchain.
Private blockchain studio StrongBlock – founded by former execs from Block.one, the company behind EOS – has raised $4 million.
As Block.one was raising $4 billion from Silicon Valley and Wall Street, a group of executives decided to quit and build a bigger, better blockchain.
Tron and Neo weren't the only crypto projects interested in acquiring BitTorrent; in fact, CoinDesk has learned, five others were tempted to buy too.
In a fresh round of funding, Block.one has added to its line-up of major investors PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel and bitcoin mining giant Bitmain.
When the company that created EOS starts voting for validators, there will be little chance of winning a spot without earning its support.
Block.one, the company behind the EOS blockchain, has just hired a former Jefferies Group LLC executive to lead its $1 billion venture capital arm.
EOS holders elected their first set of block producers, so the hotly anticipated blockchain is now live.
After a roughly year-long initial coin offering (ICO), what has become perhaps the most hotly anticipated blockchain is scheduled to launch on June 2.
Dan Larimer says his new project has an infinitely scalable blockchain, but skeptics doubt the controversial figure's ability to pull it off.
