EOS: Block.One’s highly anticipated ‘big announcement’ leaked



Block.One, at the end of May, announced that “something big was going to happen” on June 1 in Washington DC. There were no further details revealed as to what the announcement was or what it could lead to. There was also a teaser released during the announcement.

Block.One also purchased RAM worth 3.3 million via its EOS token as a preparation for their announcement. One of the speculated reasons for the purchase was that Block.One might be looking at building a large decentralized app, which could be a social media platform. This was later ascertained through a tweet by Daniel Larimer, who often provides opinion on EOS activities.

According to a Bloomberg report, Block.One also announced a buy-back of 10% of its shares, which were priced at $1,500, putting Block.One’s valuation at $2.2 billion.

However, a day before June 1, Coin Jazeera managed to access the transcript for The June 1st Block.One announcement. The transcript was that of Brendan Blumer, the CEO of Block.One and was written in first-person.

According to the transcript, Blumer would start the announcement by stating,“To our valued EOS Community, Block.One stakeholder, BP cartels, and the World.”

He would then continue to clarify that the announcement was not regarding Tether’s migration to EOS, its Coinbase listing, or a new Twitter application.

Blumer would then go on to rest speculations regarding a potential partnership with Facebook, Apple or Google. He then adds,

“It’s been a long road for Block.One. There were moments when we were afraid we would be held accountable, but with the help and guidance of our trusted and loyal CTO Dan Larimer, who has had four successful “exits”, we were able to achieve our mission of making as much money as we possibly could.”

Blumer then thanks the CTO and brands him as the benchmark for measuring their own success. The transcript then reads,“It’s been a long road as you know. We did a year-long ICO for a project we knew would never work, but we endured. With your money, we raised $4 billion, the largest financial raze in history. We are indebted to every non-accredited VPN user from the United States for believing that we could overtake Ethereum. We didn’t, but thanks for believing anyway.”

Lastly, he thanks Justin Sun for taking all the media attention for his centralized DPos blockchain, instead of theirs. He concludes by saying,“That’s all I have to share today. We don’t have any other news. As for your money? It’s parked safely in the Cayman Islands and in U.S. Government Bonds making a comfortable yield.”

EOS price is showing bearish signs against the US Dollar and bitcoin. The price could recover, but it must settle above $3.040 and $3.050 to turn positive once again.

EOS Price Analysis

A successful close above $3.040 and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours) is must for a fresh increase in the near term.

Block.One News

At the beginning of September, released EOSIO™ History Tools. At the end of the month, EOS had a successful upgrade to v 1.8. What happened in between? Well, mostly politics. What is going to happen in the future? Looks like major investment moves and big announcements are awaiting us ahead.

Brendan Blumer Responds

Whenever there is a moment of silence between announcements, releases and crypto scandals, the EOS holders turn to the heads of for answers. And they are happy to engage in community discussions, which has made the genre “Dan Larimer/Brendan Blumer answers” so popular when it comes to discussing long-standing issues bugging the EOS userbase. actively follows debates in the community, but doesn’t want to intervene in governance issues.

“Sometimes ‘Stepping up’ means stepping down,” says Brendan Blumer. 

The hottest topic was an alleged attempt by a major BP to buy one of the biggest and most trusted Proxies – @ColinTCrypto, and Brendan Blumer weighed in with his opinion about it.

As we can see, the overall motto for and Brendan, as far as we can gather from his Twitter messages is “go with the flow.” Though whether his confidence in things working themselves out is because of his awareness that the system can regulate itself without any divine interventions from, or stems from faith in coming technological solutions that will strengthen governance on EOS, is unclear.

Block.One Moves Closer To DC

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam announced 170 new jobs in Arlington County as has promised to invest $10 million to establish the U.S. headquarters of the company in the area. 

“ maintains a strong presence at its Blacksburg operation, and we are thrilled that this global company will expand its footprint in Virginia by locating its U.S. headquarters in Arlington County” – Governor Northam.

This move shows that the company is now focused on expansion in the physical world, and the regulatory uncertainties are taking a backseat to the growth of their technological and human resources.

“Arlington’s proximity to Washington, D.C. also allows us to continue building a constructive business and government relationships as we provide insights for the application of blockchain-based technologies. We are excited to be heading down new paths of growth” – Chief Operating Officer Andrew Bliss.

This doesn’t mean that these questions will never be resolved for common EOS users – but it looks like, for the time being, they’ll have to solve them by their own hands, for example, by building trust in proxies and engaging in the voting process.

Settlement With SEC announced a settlement with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) with a one-time fine of $24 million. This happened due to the unregistered sale of EOS tokens, but the overall outlook on the settlement it positive – EOS will be fully compliant with the government and regulators, and the settlement especially states that will not be subject to any of the restrictions that would usually apply to this type of settlement.

Also, the recently formed Crypto Rating Council gave EOS a 3.75, noting that EOS has a relatively high likelihood of being a security. By overcoming these obstacles, EOS is providing legal transparency, thereby becoming more attractive to serious investors compared to other altcoins.

EOSIO Hackathon

This opportunity corresponds with’s expansion efforts and search for new talent, which will improve the blockchain in the future.

Update V. 1.8

The most anticipated event of September was one of the most boring ones: a successful update occurred. No blackouts, no scandals, no hackings – BPs just turned the switch on, on the 23rd and the biggest fork of EOS happened without a hangup, leaving the press without any material for apocalyptic headlines.

The update enabled a lot of features, such as:

  2. REPLACE_DEFERRED (#6997, #7185)
  3. NO_DUPLICATE_DEFERRED_ID (#7072, #7173, activation depends on REPLACE_DEFERRED)
  8. FORWARD_SETCODE (#7109)
  9. GET_SENDER (#7111)
  10. RAM_RESTRICTIONS (#7131)

The feature ONLY_BILL_FIRST_AUTHORIZER especially stands out, as it allows dApps to pay for the network resource costs of their users. This makes usage of dApps easier and has been seen as a possible driver of mass adoption.

All other updates have made EOSIO much faster and more simple to use. What is most important is that the update to v. 1.8 is required for Voice and other upcoming Dapps, so now we are expecting news on this highly anticipated application.

New Horizons

Breaking through technical, political and governance issues, EOS looks to be heading toward a bright future. The next big step is Voice. While token holders are waiting for it, we at Lumi Wallet are happy to take part in the popularization of EOS and are looking for tokens to add to our wallet. If there is a token you want to have in our wallet or you are a token creator, follow this link and we’ll get in contact with you.

Overall, Autumn has started with lots of good news for EOS. We hope the momentum won’t be lost and we’ll have more positivity for you on the next Lumi Wallet EOS Digest.

EOS Price Trend Marks a Steep Fall; Price Hovers Around $2.97



EOS is being attacked by the bears just as many of the coins in the crypto market. The price goes for a downward stride with its intraday movement. The coin was trying to book profits since the past few days, but the sudden fall has disappointed the traders. Today, the market started with a bearish trend. However, there is a slight improvement felt as the change in the coins is turning green again. The traders can expect improvement in the trading price of EOS, too, but the chances of getting a profitable intraday closing are very less.

To understand the momentum of EOS, let’s have a look at the price chart.

EOS to USD Price Analysis:

In the month of September, EOS started trading around $3.39. The coin marked a remarkable escalation as it went up to $4.2 with a few ups and downs in the path. Soon, there was a pullback in the price experienced that brought it down to $2.4 marking a regression of 41.69%. The month closed around the trading price of $3.13, with a loss of 6.12%. In the ongoing month, the price tried to move up as the counters jumped from $2.8 to $3.3 by 19.65%. However, the price got badly affected today and dropped to $2.97. The same led to a loss in the 15-days movement in EOS of 10.08%.

EOS Chart By TradingView

EOS is slightly moving towards the immediate support level at $2.89, with the next support marked at $2.79. In case the price improves the immediate resistance level would be found around $3.03. Here are the calculated support and resistance levels.

The coin moves at a moderate pace, usually, and thus, the best result could be observed in long run. We would recommend the traders to go for the same as the short-term investment could be dicey.
