We are aware that many members of the EOS community feel that Block.one has not kept its word regarding past promises and that both the community and individual EOS users have been harmed as a result. As we announced previously, in November and December 2021 we engaged in negotiations with Block.one to attempt to arrange a fair and reasonable resolution with Block.one that would position the EOS community for future success. Unfortunately Block.one decided to walk away from the negotiations and as a result the EOS Block Producers determined it was in the best interest of the community to freeze the vesting of all the EOS tokens that Block.one was to earn in the future.

We have continued to engage with community members and stakeholders on this issue and what we have heard is that the community supports the Foundation taking further steps toward holding Block.one accountable for its past actions and broken promises. Accordingly we have retained a leading Canadian law firm to investigate Block.one’s past actions and promises vis-à-vis the EOS community and EOS investors to determine what legal avenues are available to seek redress. This will include a review of all possible legal recourse including, but not limited to, instituting formal litigation proceedings against Block.one. We will keep the community updated as this investigation progresses.
