Seven EOS accounts were frozen to prevent token theft. But does this seemingly moral decision spell havoc for the broader crypto market?
The EOS blockchain went live this week, sparking debate and commentary from cryptocurrency's avid social media users.
EOS holders elected their first set of block producers, so the hotly anticipated blockchain is now live.
Many point to the potential security threats as a reason votes have been trickling in (instead of rushing in) on the EOS blockchain.
EOS still needs millions on tokens staked before its mainnet can officially go live, unlocking its tokens for holders to trade and use.
The candidates for EOS's equivalent of "miners" have voted tonight to move the hotly anticipated blockchain to its next launch phase.
At a vote of the coalition launching EOS last night, process troubles and a visit by the software's creator seemed to cause the latest delay.
There are now two EOS blockchains being tested by rival groups. And while that might be worrisome, the groups say they'll work together in the end.
Longer than hours, but maybe less than days – that's about the best estimate for when the EOS blockchain, years in the making, will finally launch.
