EOS market outlook

Named after the Greek word for “Dawn”, the EOS.IO platform was developed by private company Block. one, and released in 2018. The network claims to have a transaction speed of millions per second with zero fees on transactions.

Between 2017-2018, the Hong Kong-based firm conducted the longest-running Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in history. Renowned figures such as PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel backed the project. Around $4.3 billion was realized from the token sale, which Block.one was used to support the EOS blockchain.

However, in late 2019 the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) came after the company and its network. The allegations were the sale of unregistered securities through its ICO and inappropriate investor disclosure. Block. one neither admitted nor denied the regulator’s allegations. The firm, however, agreed to a $24 million settlement, or about 0.58 percent of the amount raised during the ICO.

Adding insult to injury was a report that surfaced last month from the University of Texas. The publication alleged the EOS ICO was marred by wash-trading to create synthetic coin demand.

Price developments

In early 2018, the EOS token struck its all-time high above the $20 mark. Following penalties by the regulator, the token dropped below $5. EOS started to gain momentum in the mid-May year when it climbed to a high of roughly $14. Thereafter in June, the token nosedived back below $7.

Bullish sentiments reigned in May when Block.one announced investing $10B in a new crypto exchange – Bullish Global. The same happened in July when EOS announced plans to list on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) through a SPAC merger. However, the EOS token is still about 77 percent away from its ATH. At press time, EOS was trading at $4.46 according to our data.

Solana, Tezos, EOS Price Analysis: 21 November

Published

on

While the bulls tried to revive, bears did not fail to pose hurdles as prices struggled to achieve a breakthrough.

After an onerous November for the buyers, altcoins like Solana, Tezos and EOS continue to display a bearish outlook while hinting at a near-term increasing bullish force.

Solana (SOL)

TradingView, SOL/USD

SOL rallied by over 85% from 12 October to 6 November, 2021. With this upturn, it struck its ATH on 6 November. Since then, the withdrawal phase kicked in as the bears visibly took over. 

During the downfall, SOL lost over one-fourth of its value until it touched its three-week low on 18 November. After breaching the patterned uptrend, bears ensured to keep the current price below its 4-hour 50 SMA (white), 200 SMA (red). However, the price managed to stay above its 20-SMA (yellow). The reason for that is the 10.57% three-day ROI triggered by the bulls since 18 November. This rally, however, occurred on low trading volumes and thus depicting a weak bullish move.

At press time, SOL traded at $212.9675. The RSI revived and exhibited neutral sentiments by wavering around the half-line. Although the DMI preferred the bears, AO and MACD hinted at their near-term decreasing power. Nevertheless, the ADX displayed a weak directional trend.

Tezos (XTZ)

TradingView, XTZ/USDT
This drawback can be reflected in its price trajectory as the bears successfully breached multiple resistance points. Thus, the digital currency lost over half of its value in 45 days. This downturn led to XTZ touching its ten-week low on 18 November.

However, the price action did not fail to oblige the trend as the price bounced from the lower channel after a 13.85% three-day ROI.

At press time, XTZ traded at $5.451. The RSI stood at the 56-mark after swaying over 28 points in two days. Also, the DMI chose the buyers while AO confirmed the bullish vigor. The price action might have room for a slight surge until it falls back into its two-month trend.

EOS

TradingView, EOS/USDT

Since 11 October, the digital currency saw a 20.9% rally over the next month. Consequently, EOS hit its seven-week high on 10 November after a sustained bullish rally.

However, the price action obliged the trend by stepping back into it. The altcoin saw a 27.74% withdrawal over the next week until it hit its three-week low on 18 November.

At press time, EOS was trading at $4.278. After a steady downtrend, RSI displayed recovery signs as it headed north and stood near the midline. Additionally, the DMI preferred the bearish vigor. However, MACD and AO showed possible signs of easing bearish power.

BlockOne Attempts to Revive EOS network with Transfer of $210M to Helios

Published

on

Block.one has come up with a new plan how to revitalize the blockchain project and it starts with a substantial transfer of EOS tokens to Helium.

EOS has been one of the worst-performing crypto-asset of this year. But to foster its network growth, BlockOne has come up with a new plan that comes in the midst of scathing attacks on the company.

Saying ‘BlockОne’s relationship with EOS has been mired with controversy’ is an understatement. As a result of continued backlash from the community, EOS has not only fallen from the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap, it now stood at the 44th spot. But the blockchain company behind its inception, BlockОne, has a plan that involves transferring 45 million EOS tokens to Helios.

Is BlockОne’s plans to rescue EOS a bit too late?

The announcement stated that BlockОne has agreed to transfer 45 million EOS (approximately $209 million) on November 8th after looking through many ways where it can leverage its token holdings to foster the network’s growth.

The company added that it is now looking at a series of transactions in an attempt to “empower the EOS network” and target new participants while exploring fresh opportunities, kicking-off new decentralized governance initiatives, and ramping up the liquidity of EOS-powered projects.

Helios, which happens to be led by former actor and crypto proponent Brock Pierce, has some plans to revive the network. While it is still early to say if the latest move will resuscitate the community’s confidence, Helios promises to have a few plans up its sleeves.

For one, the organization plans to roll out an EOS Venture Capital fund. It also aims to support the development of institutional-grade financial products based on EOS.

Besides, supporting the creation of necessary infrastructure, tooling, and documentation for EOS developers are also included on its roadmap. In addition to that, the platform will also focus on organizing community events surrounding awareness, networking, and expanding viability.

Battle Between BlockOne and EOS Community

Accusations about the EOS project being plagued by centralization have prompted a significant decline in the network’s activity. Around this time last year, EOS was the world’s seventh-largest blockchain by market value. Since then, a lot has changed.

BlockOne’s decision to transfer millions of funds comes less than a week after Yves La Rose, the Founder of the EOS Network Foundation, attacked the former developer for moving away from wanting to contribute to the EOS ecosystem. La Rose didn’t sugarcoat words when he claimed that “EOS is a failure” while speaking about the dwindling market cap as well as the value of the token.
