ENF Instituting Formal Litigation Proceedings Against Block.one
The EOS Network Foundation has announced we’ve hired a Canadian law firm to investigate B1’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 story was picked up by many crypto publications including CoinDesk, CoinTelegraph, CryptoBriefing and others.
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.
The ƒractally Team is Growing
Last week we learned about 3 new additions to the ƒractally team.
First, John Williamson, creator of the Violet Garden incentivized blogging platform on EOS, was hired to join the team. You can watch the above GenPool Spotlight interview to learn more about John and his role within ƒractally.
Second, Dan Larimer tweeted about Valzav joining the team and bringing with him the experience acquired while being the lead UI dev for both the Bitshares Exchange and at Steemit.com.
And finally, well known EOS developer James Mart has also joined the team to help enhance EOS tokens, DeFi, wallets and developer tools. James Mart also published a YouTube /rant of his own addressing the topic of exchange voting and mechanism design in general.
/Rants by Yves La Rose: Mindset Shift, Vilifying Exchanges, Token Listings
Yves La Rose brings gives some much needed context on the present circumstance & rants about the mindset shift necessary for EOS to move from outmoded concepts of funding & development, to how we progress with leadership & decentralization while bringing together the teams and resources we need to thrive.
Yves La Rose rants about the problematic nature of vilifying exchanges, the important roles they play within the EOS & wider crypto ecosystems, & the need to develop win-win, pragmatic business relationships
Yves La Rose demystifies the process around exchange token listings and touches on both the legal and operational considerations that come into play as well as the unique case of EOS based tokens.
