The last two months have been outstanding for EOS, which has witnessed a steady gain. The cryptocurrency, which was on the rise due to a number of exciting developments, outpaced Litecoin to move up. As the market capitalization of EOS skyrocketed, its popularity soared over the last couple of months. The latest price trends, however, have sent shock waves across the crypto community, as the crypto market has been hauled into a sudden depression, sending many well-performing currencies in the red.
Like any other major altcoins in the market, EOS is struggling to recover from a price slump. As per the price trends, the coin is showing signs of a rebound. Although the general sentiment of the market is bearish, there’s some good news for EOS investors. The following segments explore the recent developments on the EOS blockchain.
The CFO of Australia’s Commonwealth Bank to Join EOS Blockchain as a COO
EOS, the Hong Kong-based decentralized platform, which is often considered as a threat to Ethereum killer, boasts an amazing development team. The developers working on the blockchain managed to raise $2 billion in a single ICO offering. Considering the developments on the blockchain, the currency, which ranks 5th by market capitalization, could overtake Ethereum in the coming days.
While the sudden price drop has sparked confusions in the crypto community, EOS is all set to surprise its users with exciting new updates. As per the updates released on May 14, Rob Jesudason, the CFO of the Australian Commonwealth Bank has left the bank to join Block.one. Since Block.one is the developing team behind EOS, this is news for EOS. As per the reports, Jesundason has been appointed as the president and chief operating officer of Block.one. “Blockchain will have a transformative impact on most industries in the coming years and will redefine operating models by streamlining businesses, while also reducing cost and risk,” Jesudason said.
Block.one has generated the EOS tokens that were distributed as initial coin offering in June 2017. This means that the blockchain project will turn one year in the following month. At any rate, there is no better way of commemorating the occasion, as Jesudason’s joining will be a significant development on the blockchain. Speaking of this occasion, CEO of Block.one observed that he sees Jesudason as the perfect candidate for the COO post. The ex-CFO of the Australian Commonwealth Bank, who has been at CBA for over six years, has earlier worked on several other projects, including IFS, Credit Suisse, JPMorgan, Barclays, GE Capital and McKinsey. Block.one’s CEO Brendan Blumer who is happy with the decision, reported, “Rob has a proven track record of success in global financial services, where he has been involved in industry innovation and facilitated regulatory advancement enabling the adoption of new technologies.”
New Developments on EOS Blockchain
While the return of the bullish sign has alarmed many investors, EOS blockchain anticipates some positive changes in the future. The blockchain, which invigorated the traders’ interest by launching new software update, Dawn 4.0, is striving to make some interesting upgrades on the blockchain. Tracing its recent developments, the EOS mainnet launch and the new project called Infinito Wallet have created quite a buzz among investors.
Infinitowallet, which has its headquarters on the Isle of Man, UK, now accepts EOS tokens registrations. This registration process is mandatory to translate ERC20 EOS tokens to its own platform. As of now, Infinito Wallet accepts seven big currencies and tokens that are based on the ERC20 and NEP-5 blockchains. Conveniently enough, Infinito Wallet has launched an app for its project for both iOS and Android users. Operational since 2017 in the UK, Infinito Wallet is on its way to becoming a universal wallet for all types of cryptocurrencies. As reported by Infinito Wallet, the project is one of the first candidates to support EOS’s hyped-up mainnet launch. All the ERC20, tokens which are registered with the EOS ICO, will need to register with EOS before June 1, as the EOS ICO will conclude on that day and any unregistered tokens will freeze.
EOS and the Market
With the cryptocurrency market recovering from a sudden price slump, many top gaining currencies like Tron, EOS, and others are reversing their gains. As of May 16, 2018, the currency is trading at $12.35, with a 13.27% drop. While it is evident that EOS is slowing down, with a stable trading volume and a market cap of $10,608,833,816, the currency is here to rule.
