Block.one’s Brendan Blumer accuses Bloomberg of being ‘intentionally aggravating and arrogant’

Brendan Blumer, the CEO and Co-founder of Block.one, was in the news after he accused Bloomberg of violating an embargo and publishing an article about Voice, the social media platform, before the scheduled B1 June event.
Blumer tweeted that Bloomberg breached an embargo and verified the same in writing by one of the article’s co-authors, Alastair Marsh. However, Marsh, while acknowledging the breach, refused to take down the article.
In a recent tweet, Blumer shared a snapshot of the email shared between him and Alastair Marsh, where the Bloomberg writer agreed to the embargo.

According to Blumer, Bloomberg refused to rectify an acknowledged breach of the written agreement. He also accused the popular news portal of “causing material damage” to the company, community, and other journalists that were offered the story under the same terms.
Referring to an article that reported Bloomberg reporters’ net bonuses for publishing “market-moving” stories, the CEO clarified that he did not accuse them of market manipulation. He stated,
“.. just exploring the extent at which others may have been similarly wronged.”
Bloomberg responded to the entire fiasco and stated that the article was taken down from the homepage and their crypto-page, making it harder to be accessed.

Responding to the apology by the news outlet, Blumer tweeted,
“Honest mistakes are fine, but refusing to rectify it by simply removing the article while we prepare for our annual keynote is pure abuse of power. ‘I’m sorry it blighted your day,’ is intentionally aggravating and arrogant. Our industry needs to stand up to this behavior.”

Block.one CEO accuses Bloomberg of ‘breaching embargo’ agreement on article

The fifth largest cryptocurrency by market cap, EOS, had posted significant rallies along with the king coin. As the new month dawned, the crypto space woke up to the news of the firm behind EOS, Block.one, announcing the launch of its own crypto-based social-media application dubbed Voice.
The much-anticipated project was hinted by the Block.one team who touted a big launch on June 1, 2019. However, the news was first reported by Bloomberg. In a surprising turn of events, Brenden Blumer, Block.one’s CEO and Co-founder, accused the popular news portal of publishing the article before the scheduled B1June event.
Blumer’s tweet read,
“We’ve had a lot of questions from our community and other media outlets as to why @Bloomberg reported on Voice before our #B1June event. Bloomberg breached an embargo agreed to in writing by Alastair Marsh, acknowledged the breach, but still refused to take down the article.”
Following this, a Twitter user claimed Alastair Marsh, the co-author of the article, to be a “Facebook maximalist” directing to a tweet by the journalist where he stated that Facebook’s native crypto coin had a “real chance of being larger and more widely used than BTC”. Responding to the tweet, Blumer posted,
“I’m curious as to what conflict and @crypto trading policies are in place at @bloomberg to prevent journalists leveraging their position to manipulate cryptocurrency markets”
The Block.one CEO also expressed his thoughts on Bloomberg’s “abuse of power”. He further tweeted,
“We’re committed to standing up for this ongoing abuse of power on behalf of our company, community, and others similarly wronged. Email us at legal@block.one if you’ve had similar issues with Bloomberg journalists breaking written agreements or manipulating markets.”

Sell The News: EOS Falls By 7% After Block.one’s June 1st Announcement

Block.one’s June 1st (B1June) live stream has just been unveiled, and EOS is dumping. In a classic case of “buy the rumor, sell the news”, the crypto asset has fallen by 6.5% since the event occurred. This shouldn’t exactly be surprising, as the cryptocurrency rallied by 40% in the past week in anticipation of a massive announcement set to revolutionize the blockchain world.

EOS Dumps After Block.one Keynote
Earlier today, we reported that Block.one, the company behind EOS’ development and subsequent public sale, intended to launch a blockchain-based social media platform. In the keynote that was published just an hour ago, this was revealed to be true. Brendan Blumer, the chief executive of Block.one, opined:
“You just can’t read a house when the foundation is crumbling. Social media was created to use its users. Right now, it’s the companies, not the users that reap the rewards. They auction our data to the highest bidder and flood our feeds with hidden agendas… We’re leveraging the EOS blockchain to create a social media platform that is more aligned with the world… The value of good content gets circulated to sustain the community.”
Launching shortly into beta, Voice will be a “truly self-sustaining” social media economy where both the platform itself and the users benefit. There will be no data collection, nor wanton advertisement targeting. To do this, Block.one is launching the fittingly-named Voice Token, which can only be created by interacting in the social ecosystem. The EOS-based crypto asset will allow users to “make their voice heard”, giving holders the opportunity to signal boost their messages and media.

What was also announced was that Block.one has collaborated with Coinbase to bring EOS to Earn, giving users in over 100 countries the ability to collect $10 worth of the cryptocurrency by watching videos and consuming educational content. And, Dan Larimer, the chief technology officer of Block.one, also unveiled EOS VM, a new protocol that will allow for processes on the blockchain to purportedly be 12 times faster than it was just one year ago.
Many have already begun to express their distaste in regards to the announcements (or lack thereof), taking to Twitter. Prominent entrepreneur Justin Wu, for instance, noted that what was unveiled was “underwhelming”, hence why the value of EOS has dropped so rapidly.

Just keeping it real — underwhelming lol
— Justin Wu – E3 2019 (@hackapreneur) June 1, 2019

Others have been skeptical of the blockchain-enabled social media concept itself. Crypto trader and commentator Loomdart jokes that Block.one is effectively rebuilding Steemit, a crypto blogging and content sharing network, on EOS.
The funny thing is, Larimer is one of the minds behind Steemit, not setting the best precedent for Voice. Of course, Voice is not meant to be Steemit, but some are rightfully wary of crypto-enabled social networks.
As Delphi Digital’s Tom Shaughnessy further explains, “Block.one is at it again looking to tack on a use case for EOS which is already perfectly addressed by Twitter.” But there’s a kicker, the data on Voice will all be susceptible to the whims of EOS’ block producers, according to Shaughnessy anyway.

EOS #B1June Announcement: Has Block.one CEO left Another Clue about the Secret?

The Block.one, #B1June Announcement is almost here, and he crypto-community is hyped about it. According to popular opinion, two possible announcements could be made.
Also Read: EOS Gains Over 15% As Block.one Build Anticipation for #B1June Announcement
First, it involves a social media platform on the EOS blockchain. The platform would secure the privacy of individuals on the network and would enable seamless transfer of value as well.
Reportedly, Christian Angermayer, a German entrepreneur and innovator are working with Block.one and Paypal co-founder, Peter Theil on a social media platform on the blockchain. The platform would be similar to Twitter. Furthermore, users will be paid according to the number of likes on their post like in Steem. As exciting as the platform sounds, it is will still require a user base to flourish. Hence, the announcement would be made somewhat redundant at the moment.
Another big expectation from the announcement is that Block.one could be the firm providing scaling solutions on Bitcoin [BTC] using the EOS platform. The idea was expressed earlier by Brenden Blummer through a Tweet. However, the innovator makes has presented loads of other ambitious ideas.
Nevertheless, it was also hinted at the recent podcast of EverythingEOS which organized pre-party on 31st May 2019, which was attended by Brenden Blummer and Brock Pierce.
Another hint which Blummer might have given out in relation to the scaling solution is this tweet here. He tweeted:
Our team recently tested nodeos with 320 million accounts performing random transfers at thousands of tps sustained. #eosio scaling continues!
Now, 320 million isn’t just a large number that signifies that technical prowess of EOS. It is also ten times the number of Bitcoin Wallets. Currently, there are almost 32 million bitcoin wallets, according to data compiled by Statista.
The SegWit protocol, along with Lightning Network (LN), was working on the scalability issue on Bitcoin. It has been under progress since late 2017. However, not much mainstream adoption of same has occurred as yet. Hence, if the scaling project on Bitcoin [BTC] goes live sooner than expected, we might see a massive surge of transactions on Bitcoin from people who are deterring to altcoins due to lower transaction fees.

Moreover, the governance and economic model of the project is still a secret. Hence, how it would affect EOS and Bitcoin [BTC] prices is still unclear.

EOS Gains Over 15% As Block.one Build Anticipation for #B1June Annoncement

EOS broke $8, gaining over 15% in the past 24 hours. The price of EOS at 4: 00 Hours UTC on 28th May 2019 is $7.9.
The market capitalization of the entire cryptocurrency market rose by around 10% on Monday 27th May 2019, but have retained the gains after that. However, EOS has gained higher than most coins. It also beats Litecoin [LTC] to attain 6th rank by total Mcap.
EOS/USD 1-Day Chart on Binance (TradingView)
The cryptocurrency reportedly retained its first rank in the Chinese cryptocurrency rankings released every month by the Center for Information and Industry Development (CCID) since May 2018. The Chinese Public Agency, CCID, assess the cryptocurrencies based on their application, underlying technology, and innovation. EOS was the leading platforms for Dapps according to their assessment.
‘Big Announcement’: #B1June; All Kept a Secret
The rise can also be attributed to the apprehensions of the ‘big announcement’ that Block.one is expected to deliver on 1st June. #B1June is a favorite caption among EOS proponents. While the details of the announcement are kept a complete secret, Mike Novogratz, cryptocurrency investor, and analyst had also mentioned it in his talk with CNBC Squawk box, he said,
“EOS has a big announcement in June. My guess on that announcement, people get excited, the coin goes higher.”
However, he also mentioned that the Dapps space could take about two to five years to develop. Nevertheless, some of these cryptocurrencies have a “real chance” of being recognized as currencies as well.
Block.One Has Purchased RAM Worth $25 Million on EOS
Reportedly, Block.one has purchased RAM space worth $25 million on the EOS blockchain. They spent their reserve balance of EOS to spend 3,300,000 EOS on it. Moreover, a cryptocurrency user, Rob Finch, also noted in a tweet that the RAM space is not bought to increase space for more users, it will surely be used to build something else. He tweeted,
“NOTE: once RAM is purchased, it cannot be used to create new accounts. The RAM for a new account is purchased at the time of account creation.”
In the recent episode of Everything EOS, where Zack talked about the use of the enormous RAM space that Block.one bought in EOS. It could include support for side chains or a new layer on EOS.
Moreover, he also said that,
“It could be used to provide some sort of scaling solution on Bitcoin..”
Another firm is also expected to co-announce things together with Block.one, which was confirmed by Dan as a “Yes” to the presence of other firms taking the stage. Dan Larimer, the founder of Block.one said in a discussion,
“We are spending on blockchain based social media outside of EOS VC… More code coming in May.”
What according to you will be the primary subject of the announcement? Please share your views with us.

EOS can Complement Bitcoin To Develop As a Better Store Of Value Suggests Block.one CEO

The Founder and CEO of Block.one, Brendon Blumer earlier this month had commented on Bitcoin at the 4th Annual DC Blockchain Summit which invited criticism from the Crypto Twitter community. He was apparently accused of shilling EOS by bad-mouthing Bitcoin. Block.one is the firm that provides for the different applications and development on the EOS platform.
He stated that:
“Bitcoin is Fundamentally transformative… But actually Transfer takes an hour  It’s expensive. Taking inflation into account each transaction costs about $50-$100, it can only perform 3 transactions per second for every person on the network…its huge scaling limitations”
The criticism from Brendon about Bitcoin invited negative feedback from the community as they presumed that Brendon was shilling EOS by highlighting the limitations on Bitcoin.
A disgruntled twitter member took it to Brendan Blumer by called his criticism as “ridiculous.” He mentioned in his tweet:
“CEO of http://Block.one  @BrendanBlumer spreading ridiculous mischaracterizations about Bitcoin at a @DigitalChamber event.”
Nevertheless, Brendon came with a quick reply to the critics stating that he just stated that facts that would still love to see Bitcoin on top.
“I love #Bitcoin too, but that won’t make it fast or cheap
Bitcoin has everything it needs to succeed, and I think in time it will become the largest store of value in the world#EOS isn’t designed to compete with Bitcoin, it’s optimized for different use cases”
Bitcoin onto EOS: Blummer’s Vision
In an additional tweet today the Co-Founder of block one also outlined an ambitious project that could solve the scalability issue on Bitcoin and also benefit EOS in the long run. The idea apparently suggests as adding Bitcoin as an asset onto the EOS smart contracts.
This would enable instantaneous transactions conducted on the EOS network which would, however, involve the transfer of value in Bitcoins (BTC).
“What if #Bitcoin could flow onto #EOS and transact nearly free and nearly instant, while becoming programmable and scalable”
EOS is leading the race for the number of daily transactions and decentralized applications on its platforms ahead of Ethereum and Tron. Last month, it was also ranked as the top cryptocurrency in the list published by two independent research entities: CCID Public Blockchain Rankings and Weiss Cryptocurrency Ratings. Hence, there is a lot of reason to believe in Brendon Blummer as a visionary of the crypto-space.
Do you think Block.one will be able to deliver the visions of Blumer? Please share your views with us.
