EOS gained 1.52% on Friday. Following on from a 1.94% rise on Thursday, EOS ended the day at $3.8961.
A bullish start to the day saw EOS rise to a late morning high $4.0500 before hitting reverse.
Coming up against the first major resistance level at $4.0163, EOS slid to an early afternoon intraday low $3.7334.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $3.5894, EOS broke back through the first major resistance level to a late intraday high $4.0623.
A second pullback to $3.7 levels and into the red was short-lived. EOS found support late in the day to close out in the green.
At the time of writing, EOS was up by 1.1% to $3.9390. A mixed start to the day saw EOS rise from an early morning low $3.8767 to a high $3.9976 before easing back.
EOS left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
For the day ahead
EOS would need to move back through to the morning high to $4.00 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $4.0611.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for EOS to breakout back through to $4.00 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, Friday’s high $4.0623 and first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
Failure to move back through the morning high to $4.00 levels could see EOS hit reverse.
A fall back through to sub-$3.90 levels would bring the first major support level at $3.7322 into play before any recovery.
Barring an extended sell-off, however, EOS should steer clear of the second major support level at $3.5684.
Looking at the Technical Indicators

Dan Larimer of EOS.IO (EOS): VOICE to Be Fairer Than Steem (STEEM)
Daniel Larimer, CTO of the Block.one team behind EOS.IO (EOS) blockchain, decided to make things clear about the token economics of its anticipated VOICE content platform
The charismatic leaders of the Block.one and EOS.IO (EOS) blockchains are well-known as passionate polemists. Daniel Larimer has decided to prove it once again and to respond to all negativity that has been spread about the EOS-powered content distribution product, Voice.
No chance for self-voted content
First of all, Mr. Larimer dismissed concerns about the content promotion mechanism in Voice. He said that working on SteemIt (STEEM) taught him about the problems of token-weighted voting within a ‘one user-one vote’ promotion mode.

Thus, according to Mr. Larimer, the Voice system will be resistant to the ‘self-promoting’ manipulations as well as ‘organized’ voting for content that is not well ‘liked’. Moreover, the maximum quantity of ‘likes’ for certain posts will be limited to avoid such attempts.
As a result, users that collect many tokens won’t be able to get richer unless he or she has published highly valuable content. All of the strategies of ‘self-voting’ that cause widespread inflation of rewards on SteemIt will be detected and rejected by the system.
Categorization and filtering
Within the initial phases of operations, or ‘beta period’, the Voice platform will have only a couple of categories the content will be uploaded onto. In addition, Mr. Larimer has a program to revolutionize content categorization based on community-driven contribution.
The developer admitted that the current Voice filtering algorithm is derived from the Reddit Hot scheme. After further development, this will be replaced by a native one to ensure permanent rotation of content even with a small number of content producers
As previously reported by U.Today, the Voice platform received some negativity from the community once its KYC/AML-restrictions were disclosed. To meet the requirements of the U.S. SEC, the strictest financial watchdog in the world, Block.one may ask its potential users to provide a government-issued ID and proof of address.

EOS In A Route Of Losing Its Governance: Reports
Analysis by Binance Research, the governance of EOS fades with the benefits of decentralization.
Raised from the global leader in high-performance software, the company Block.one developed a protocol which is termed as EOS.
Per the intense market research and analysis by Binance Research, the governance of EOS fades with the benefits of decentralization. The reason behind the lack of governance of this third-generation blockchain protocol sums up with many reasons out of which Binance Research comes up with some of the major intentions.
Its latest report, the governance of EOS could miss out on the benefits of decentralization due to some of the acute reasons.
EOS a delegated Proof of Stake consensus network, frequently spotted as a victim of its governance; however, the largest EOS holders combine their positions and hold all the powers.
What is EOS?
Raised from the global leader in high-performance software, the company Block.One developed a protocol which is termed as EOS. This product was officially launched in June 2018 and proved to be the next-generation open-source blockchain protocol with industry-based transaction speed build for both public and private usage.
With the traction of growth in the price and ecosystem, EOS proves to be one of the most popular blockchains for dApp development.
What are the key reasons behind this issue?
Owning to the most powerful framework of decentralized application, EOS has been labeled as a culprit for its governance. Binance Research, one of the leading professionals in the crypto investment analysis industry, conducted the assessment in a three-fold manner and suspected in its latest report the performance of EOS concerning Collusion Resistance, Fault Tolerance and Attack Resistance.
Concerning Collision Resistance, EOS strengthens consolidation by vote trading and selfish act, whereas some of the individual companies like block.one or proxies have the leverage to change the votes radically.
The governance of EOS lacks in the method of vote trading. The impulsive structure of EOS strengthens by promoting vote trading and selfish acts.
Moving towards fault tolerance, these operational metrics proved that 2 out of 3 exchanges operating as block producers had poor performance amongst the 21 block producers. This could be one of the reasons where failures occurred.
Lastly, in regards to Attack Resistance, two clusters of block producers came out, which revealed a correlation between a regional distribution and voting patterns.
As a whole EOS, the third-generation blockchain is experiencing many issues about its governance such as low votes, insignificant transparency, poor resistance to Sybil attacks and also, changed block rewards.
