It all started two weeks ago when EOS dev team announced via Steemit that they are planning on establishing fair block production voting. Apparently, ever since three weeks ago, when Bitfinex and Huobi have announced that they are going to become block producers on EOS network, the dev team new that they need to find the solution for establishing fair block production voting, that way preventing great market exchanges like Bitfinex and Huobi to set their hegemony in the voting system of the EOS network. That’s how EOS dev team realized that the time has come to have an airdrop, called Evolution Airdrop. Let’s see what good Evolution Airdrop could do for EOS.

EOS and Establishing Fair Block Production Voting

It is essential for all holders and investors to know that they are acquiring more than just units of a digital asset when buying EOS. Apparently, by owning units of EOS, you become eligible for voting, meaning that you are entering the system of block production by having a certain amount of EOS units.

Naturally, the system works in a way that allows you to vote but only proportionally to the number of tokens you have in your wallet. Besides, the amount of your EOS is at the same part a part of a public digital wallet where it serves the purpose of voting in favor or against a certain project, system suggestion or any other proposed action on the EOS network.

Since Huobi and Bitfinex represent one of the biggest exchange networks in the market and among the crypto community, EOS wants to prevent these exchanges from having a massive power over EOS network, knowing that these networks would be able to buy great amounts of EOS units, which would consequently allow them to acquire a great power of voting, proportionally to their amounts of EOS.

However, EOS has found a simple way to make sure that there would be equality and fair token distribution across the network by organizing an airdrop that took place on May 10th.

Before releasing the airdrop, EOS made sure to explain to all holders and investors why the Evolution Airdrop is taking place, as well as how you can become a part of it, in order to aid in establishing a fair ecosystem on the EOS network where voting wouldn’t be taken advantage of  by massive exchange markets like Bitfinex and Huobi.

EOS and the Evolution Airdrop

In the spirit of establishing fair block production voting and making sure that great exchange markets like Bitfinex and Huobi won’t be able to hold a monopoly over the EOS network while controlling the inflow of their profit, EOS dev team has had another announcement on Steemit, seven days ago, on May 4th.

On this occasion, the team has answered the question: Why and Airdrop?

That is how they have explained to the public that the Evolution Airdrop doesn’t represent an ICO, but works in a way that will allow all tokens to get evenly and equitably distributed across the network, that way honoring fairness, decentralization and the crypto community.

The airdrop took place today, around 5 pm, on May 10th, and Evolution Tokens will be equally distributed through the following months with two separate airdrops, the Initial Airdrop that took place on May 10th and Scale Airdrop, that will take place afterward in the following months.

The public will be additionally informed about the next airdrop. There will be 5 billion Evolution Tokens, of which 4.5 billion will be distributed across the network during the next following months, that way preventing exchange markets like Bitfinex and Huobi to establish their hegemony on EOS ecosystem.

How is EOS doing at the Current Moment?

As of a couple of days ago, on May 9th, a good number of currencies started to follow the latest trend, meaning that a significant portion of cryptos was trading in the green. We can see this trend persisting even today, so EOS, along with the majority of tokens and coins, is going up against the dollar while trading in the green.

After the most recent change in the market, the coin has has gone down for 10% against the dollar last 24 hours (following the current market trend, all coins are going down), which is a significant movement in oppose to its performance noted in the last 60 days.

Still holding onto its newly acquired spot as the fifth-best currency, EOS can currently be traded at the price of 13.73$ per one unit, which has dragged the coin quite away from its latest record price of 21.40$ per one unit as set back at the end of April.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
