Block.one CEO Brendan Blumer has publically responded to allegations that Can blockchain be used for Voting? Across the globe, decisions made about many of societies issues are decided upon by... More.block producers (BPs) have been colluding and mutually
Blumer did not deny nor condone such practices.
Accusations of collusion stem primarily from what claims to be a leaked Huobi spreadsheet from Eosone — which apparently featured tables like “node mutual voting table” and “node income statement.”
Recently, an internal excel document from Huobi (one of the BPs) is circulating in the Chinese community. This file documents the collusion, mutual voting, and pay-offs that occur amongst the Chinese BP community. I’ m working on getting the file.

EOS has previously come under scrutiny for its apparent lack of decentralization, despite claiming that the project’s plan is to ‘decentralize everything.’ The platform has 21 block producers, of which 12 are Chinese.
It is BeInCrypto‘s view that EOS is not exactly a shining example of decentralization.
co-founder Vitalik Buterin took to Twitter to comment on the allegations, unsurprisingly bashing the self-professed ‘Ethereum killer.’

Blumer essentially provided a non-answer to the question of collusion among EOS block producers. Instead, the CEO merely provided some PR speech.
Not everyone shares his optimism.
