EOS is a blockchain technology basically like Ethereum which has been brought to life by Dan Larrimer is similar to a decentralised operating system, in practice this means that developers can build applications on EOS. Owning EOS coins is a claim on server resources. A developer needs to have EOS coins to use the EOS blockchain. Developers will not spend the coins to use the server resources, s/he just need to prove they hold them.
The new innovation is making great waves in the cryptocurrency world. The technology behind this performance is built with the intention of enabling both vertical and horizontal scaling for decentralized applications; a fact they achieve by creating sort of an operating system in which several applications can be developed.
As reported by globalcoinreport;
“The software provides accounts, authentication, databases, asynchronous communication, and the scheduling of applications across many of CPU cores or clusters. The resulting technology is a blockchain architecture that may ultimately scale to millions of transactions per second, eliminates user fees, and allows for quick and easy deployment and maintenance of decentralized applications, in the context of a governed blockchain.”
With this progress, It is very likely that the token would soon get to the two-digit price. The token is seen to be competing with the strongest cryptocurrency in the market. In just one day, the past value of $5 was surpassed with the current price oscillating between $8 and $9.
Based rapid growth of the EOS price, speculations have arisen as t its authenticity. Raising speculated rumor about an extraordinary price manipulation. The speculations further increased with the word of the movement of its funds. It is still uncertain who are the ETH backers performing on the daily auctions, in fact, a few people believe the project could be recycling a part of the ETH collected and also making its price to grow artificially.
Nonetheless, results were not that significant. In fact, it maintained relatively calmed daily amounts, and its market appreciation remains the same, so there’s a place for arousing doubts.
The EOS token won’t actually have a determining role on the network, but in contrast, it will be a very crucial piece for potential node holders. The network of the asset will develop a system composed of 21 block makers which will achieve a consent. In order to achieve that status, holders of a large-scale level might have acquired EOS already, and if not, they may be planning to acquire the asset in the short term.
Like this, with the several daily actions that still remain to happen, and with almost two months missing to launch the mainnet, the massive promotion of EOS may be changing abruptly. Currently, the majority of the EOS trades are solely speculations on platforms such as Huobi, Bithumb, and Bitfinex, but the truth is the real numbers of the network are somehow undiscovered.

Top loser on today is EOS which is trading at $4.66 with a market capitilization of $3.9 billion but suffering a loss of 20.13%. Bitcoin cash is at 18.48% red trading at $339.29.
Tether the stablecoin positioned at number 8 by marketcap is stable at $1 but reports a 0.06% red which should be normal as it is of course a stable coin.
The industry continues at grow and thrive with the reported achievements of Blockstack to conduct a SEC compliant token sales, the market normally responds favorably to such news. While its is normal for the market to step back a bit after an upward surge, could this be the result of the 7300s BTC dumped on Binance?
Someone on Binance is in a hurry to sell ~7.5k+ bitcoins ($100 million). It's a limit order, but it's aggressively adjusting it's price to be on top of the orderbook. Pushed down price from $12.6k to $12.1k. 5k btc left pic.twitter.com/f6jwAyDDc0

Bitfinex’s LEO Smart Contract Unusual Code: An Intentional Move to Defraud?
A software “Bug” was discovered recently in the Bitfinex Smart Contract for its LEO token. The bug grants any holder of the LEO token unusual levels of administrative privilegdes. Such priviledges are entirely unusual, though errors in smart contracts has been seen before, this is the first time these types of concerns has been raised concerning smart contracts codes.
Softwares are always with bugs. No matter how much care is put into writing the codes and rechecking, codes are written by humans who unintentionally make mistake. Mistakes which could cause untold damages financially and in other areas of life. In financial applications or softwares, one tiny vulnerability could allow bad actors to take undue advantages of systems and do what they are good for. Damage.
The Bitfinex ERC-20 smart contract code contains permission to enable owners of the Token to mint unlimited new tokens, they also have to ability to delete tokens of other people both in their personal wallets irrespective of the type of wallet. LEO owners are empowered via the vulnerability in the Bitfinex smart contract code to delete anyone’s coins both in centralized and decentralized exchanges.
Bitfinex, one of the world top cryptocurrency exchange was in the news some months ago and for a long time now owing to its shady behaviours as an exchange and also by its relationship to the stable coin Tether (USDT). Owing to financial challenges it was having since its funds were frozen, the embattled cryptocurrency exchange decided to host an Initial Exchange Offering were it aimed at raising xx billion dollars. A move which saw some reactions, however, the exchange later announced it has raised sufficient funds via other means and thus there will be no public sales of the LEO tokens.
In a tweet by the CTO of Bitfinex and Tether Paolo Ardoino, which was a reply to the call out made on the Bitfinex exchange, it appears this “bug” wasn’t in fact one rather it was coded into the contract with Paolo saying “For security and future reasons we left the ability to upgrade the Token Contract. That’s really a key feature for a contract that might live lot of years. Minting more tokens would not just make sense for Finex…like shooting our foot.”
In reaction to this, some twitter users were expressing their opinion on the issue.
6/7 Blockchain and smart contracts need to be trustless. Bitfinex breaks trust here by putting “evil” and “scammy” code here which allows them to cheat and have an unfair advantage over people like you and me.

Why does this matter? If you hold leo you trust bitfinex anyway. In fact it protects leo holders because if there was a bug in the smart contract bfx would quickly be able to fix it.

"Minting more tokens" why have that option in the first place then?
— Gwened (@BroGwened) July 2, 2019
With its reputation in times past, the Bitfinex exchange has a whole lot to contend with at this time however, this revelation presents an important reminder to everyone in cryptospace to not just Trust but Verify.

IOST Records More Transactions than Ethereum One Month After Mainnet Launch
IOST is an application-friendly next generation public blockchain network which is reported to be the first platform to launch an application-ready mainnet which features multiple live DApps (Decentralized Applications). IOST project’s software modules, as claimed by the management team, have been implemented using blockchain technology and they provide “secure and reliable data” as they “prevent tampering by third parties.” and thus, the IOST platform having been built on public blockchain infrastructure, allows “decentralized application developers overcome some of the most challenging problems with mass adoption.”
IOST is one of the most scalable blockchain networks. Although, its design principles are similar to some of the other leading dApp creation platforms, it has its own consensus protocol, known as “proof-of-believability.” Notably, the programming languages and development environments supported by the various dApp deployment platforms are a lot different from each other such as Ethereum, Tron, EOS, NEO etc. as each use different consensus algorithms such as proof-of-work (PoW), proof-of-stake (PoS), delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS), and delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance (dBFT).
According to a news outlet, On April 6th, 2019,”the IOST network reportedly processed more transactions than Ethereum ( ETH ). Noting that Ethereum is the world’s largest blockchain-based platform for deploying decentralized applications (dApps), however, “IOST was able to register 580,231 transactions on its network while Ethereum only managed to log 558,272 transactions on the same day (April 6th).”
As contained in IOST’s press release, the smart contract development platform has achieved the following after “the first month of its mainnet launch:”
- Registered [over] 213,000 live accounts on its network, with an average of 15,000 wallets added per day
- Launched 9 dApps, including 6 games (one of which hit 700 million IOST tokens in a single day) and a USD-pegged stablecoin
- Been listed and traded on 26 exchanges
- Processed more than 25 million transactions, including a peak of 580,231 transactions per day
- Brought more than 100 partners and developers onboard to build the IOST ecosystem, all partners totalling to more than 200 today
