Before we get to EOS, prime minister of Malta Joseph Muscat made a splash at the United Nations, telling world leaders that crypto was the future of money.
He would say that, because Malta – the EU’s smallest nation – has positioned itself as a hub for the industry. Binance is one of many companies to have located some operations there, where a regulatory framework for crypto assets is already in place. The European Union is yet to decide on how to regulate crypto.
Huobi accused of rigging votes on EOS platform
Over at EOS, the voting problems continue, this time with a bit of help from Singapore exchange Huobi it would seem.
This time its is collusion between block producers at the centre of controversy, all revealed in a leaked spreadsheet, or rather a screenshot of it and the various tables therein.
The Huobi exchanged is accused of being at the centre of the voter collusion and is even alleged to have received payments from other nodes. China-based EOSONE broke the story. The table below was allegedly drawn up by a Huobi employee and is titled: “Huobi Pool Node Account Data 20180911”.
The payments alleged received by Huobi (five of the 21 super nodes are thought to be under its control) were detailed in the screenshot below:
Huobi has denied the allegation that it received payments but has not said the spreadsheet is not authentic.
Huobi denies having financial business with the nodes ($EOS BPs) in the leaked spreadsheet. However they have not yet denied the authenticity of the leaked file. "Relevant information is still under further investigation"https://t.co/4oQYY6xM4I https://t.co/qL0wXNbfSI
