Centralization vs. decentralization

Bitmain, the largest manufacturer of ASICs, plans to launch the IPO in August, and by the end of the year to have its stocks freely traded on Hong Kong exchange. The valuation of the company is expected to be between $30 billion and $35 billion

Look at Bitmain! That’s not an ICO, that’s an IPO. Bitmain is basically saying 'Yes, you can play with your crypto, whatever you want, we are from the different league'. And that’s probably right. It’s not like we suddenly wake up and find ourselves in a new wonder decentralized world, we still exist, and will exist in a world with stock markets, traditional investors, and a strong competition. In order to keep up, you have to grow.

And it’s the best way to raise a lot of money and to become a well-known company, to conduct an IPO and list your stocks on global exchanges. Bitmain will benefit from it, and the whole industry will benefit from it, because they will get new connections on traditional markets, and being the company from crypto market, will get an opportunity to lobby it. It's totally possible that

So it can be regarded as very positive news. Also, there's a rumor that we'll see Coinbase IPO this year.

Weiss Ratings Downgrades EOS for Centralization

The Weiss Crypto Ratings chart saw EOS slide down the ranks. Weiss downgraded the project, pointing centralization as the chief reason. Weiss Moved EOS Down Straight to C- Weiss Ratings downgraded EOS from B to C-, despite the favorable estimations in the past. The chief reason was the influence of big token holders, which could decide how to sway network resources. 1/6 We’ve had great respect for work and thinking that went into the #EOS project. But the Weiss Crypto Ratings model is not based on opinion. It’s driven by data. And that data has now caused a downgrade from B to C-. Here's why (full article to be published soon): — Weiss Crypto Ratings (@WeissCrypto) December 6, 2019 The EOS blockchain gains its speed from the feature of only having 21 block producers, which transpire transaction information amongst themselves. Thus, spreading the latest state of the distributed ledger is easier, in comparison to Bitcoin’s feat of broadcasting to above 9,300 anonymous nodes. The EOS Constitution also has special cases for blocking accounts – a feature which has been useful during hacks, but also means transactions can be censored centrally. The concentration of resources in only a few hands meant “whales” could decide on allocating activities. This is also one of the reasons why the EIDOS token spread like wildfire, consuming almost all transactions on the EOS network. Network Capable of Faking Activity, Hosts Parasitic Token EOS is a network similar to older ones like BitShares, as well as Steemit. Those networks have shown that the influence of “whales” can be immense, and two nodes could even broadcast millions of free transactions. Other networks like Lisk (LSK) showed that the election process for delegates ended up with voting power getting accrued in the hands of a few top delegates. All of them could vote each other into place, without resorting to regular user vote. EOS trades at $2.75, gradually declining from the mid-year peak above $6.00. The coin has erased most of the gains for 2019 and is on track to fall to lows not seen since the bear market of 2018. According to Blocktivity, the network carries more than 43 million transactions per day. As expected, things will get better from here. A bit fairer cpu pricing. Congestion will gradually die down as it's not dirt cheap to get cpu anymore. Everyone becomes a bit more vigilant. Fairer value for EIDOS and YAS and CPU. It will get better everyday.Now, when Voice? — Enumivo (@enumivo) December 1, 2019 Most of those now belong to minting EIDOS tokens, while other transactions are related to distributed app activity. EOS has also seen accusations that most of its dApps are visited by bots, faking the real usage statistics. What do you think about EOS’s latest crypto ratings (as per Weiss)?
