Block.One Will Not Launch Its Social Network on EOS
In a departure from earlier announcements, the company now says its Facebook rival, Voice, "will be run on a purpose-made EOSIO blockchain."
The plaintiffs – a crypto fund and an individual investor – are seeking compensatory damages from Block.one and other defendants.
Block.one says the time is right for it to take an active role in the EOS community voting for block producers.
Block.one has issued its own set of criteria to use when voting for EOS block producers, perhaps controversially including where they are based.
EOS creator Block.one has acquired the team behind once-prominent block producer EOS New York, which has now entirely ceased operations.
Buying votes is a big no-no in traditional democracies, but on the world’s eighth-largest blockchain it’s become an accepted way of doing business.
