EOS has made quite an impact on the crypto community for the past couple of months since it managed to push out Litecoin from the spot of the 5th-best currency, that way taking its place in the global coin ranking list in accordance with its market capitalization. EOS has also been in the spotlight for the past couple of weeks due to the expectation of its main net launch which should take place in about 10 days. However, while expecting for the main net launch, EOS got delisted from Livecoin, and everyone is wondering why.
How Come EOS Got Delisted from Livecoin?
Livecoin is known as the 4th largest exchange market that trades with altcoins and as such counts as one of the exchanges that you want to see your favorite asset listed for live trading. Needless to say that EOS welcomed this listing open-handed as any listing makes up for another great opportunity for the expansion of the listed digital asset.
However, we have been recently introduced to the announcement that Livecoin exchange will be delisting EOS from its platform, adding that they are delisting this asset ahead of its main net launch.
Livecoin exchange didn’t make further statements, and so the team behind his exchange failed to provide the specific reason for the initial delisting, so many EOS enthusiasts and investors were left wondering.
Luckily, Redditors didn’t waste any of their time so they started an official EOS thread on Reddit, discussing the given matter.
In the mentioned Reddit thread, Redditors might have provided some needed answers, so they suggested that Livecoin is delisting EOS as this exchange is known by its inability to support the main net swap of the token.
Since Livecoin doesn’t own the technological capability needed to support the coin swap after the main net launching, it is easier for Livecoin to announce the delisting of EOS then list it back again once EOS main net is launched.
After the main net launch, EOS will become its own native token which means that it will no longer represent Ethereum’s ERC20 token.
That is precisely why Livecoin had to go on with the announced delisting – not because EOS was breaking regulations, terms of agreements or the platform’s policy, but because it is not able to support the transformation from ERC20 to token swap.
In addition to the announcement that EOS Is being delisted, Livecoin asked all EOS traders on their platform to withdraw their EOS units from their wallets as their funds will be irreversible after the initial delisting that occurred today on May 23rd.
Binance and Bitfinex have announced that their platforms will be able to support the token swap once the main net is launched.
The launching of the main net is scheduled for June 2nd, which is only 10 days from now.
On the mentioned date, all EOS tokens on Ethereum ecosystem will be frozen, after which the main net launch will take place, giving birth to a rebranded EOS.
How is EOS doing at the Current Moment?
With the market still plummeting with the majority of digital assets going down in the red, EOS makes no exception as we can see it dropping against the dollar.
For three days in a row by far, the market seems to be caught up in a devastating trend of trading in the red, so we can see no improvements today either on May 23rd.
However, in the period of the last two months, EOS has gained 64% against the dollar, while it collected another rise of 1.5% against the dollar in the period of the last 30 days despite the rough market trends that followed at the time.
During the last 24 hours, EOS dropped by -12.69%, while it dropped for -11% against the dollar in the course of the last seven days, making the latest drop a pretty harsh turn of events for the day.
EOS is also dropping against BTC and ETH by over -7% and over -2%.
Following the latest change in the market, EOS can now be traded at the price of 11.36$ per one unit.
EOS made a record price of above 19$ per one unit back at the end of April after it had previously set an all-time high of around 15$ per one unit back in January 2018.
It is expected to see some improvements in its daily trading volume despite the current market trend prior to and after the main net launch.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
