Block.one CEO Brendan Blumer has publically responded to allegations that EOS block producers (BPs) have been colluding and mutually voting.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.— Maple Leaf Capital (@MapleLeafCap) September 26, 2018
‘Decentralize Everything’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.
‘Completely Predictable’Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin took to Twitter to comment on the allegations, unsurprisingly bashing the self-professed ‘Ethereum killer.’
Interesting! I mean, it was completely predictable and I did predict it, but I did not expect it to happen so thoroughly and so soon!@VladZamfir https://t.co/InylvvzHFm— vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) September 29, 2018
Saying NothingBlumer 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. What do you think of EOS and the alleged collusion among block producers? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
