EOS (EOS) Blockchain launch is finally about to happen as candidates for the position of validators or block producers from all over the world voted ‘Go’ to take the mainnet live.

EOS Blockchain is created by Block.One, co-founded by Dan Larimer. The company has been in news for quite some time as it raised $4 billion to develop open source software for over a year-long initial coin offering. When the software approached its release, group of organisations competing to become the block producers made up the EOS Mainnet Launch Group (EMLG). And, all of them agreed to the mainnet launch for EOS.

On Saturday, at 1:00 UTC more than 100 candidate organisations started gathering and participating in a cal, the vote occurred roughly 45 minutes later. Around 1800 people watched and vote to ‘Go / No Go’ was done almost unanimously. The final count has not been reported and the meeting was streamed on YouTube by EOS GO, Coin Desk reported.

EOS listed on BitMEX

This news comes soon after the announcement of the EOS Blockchain being listed on BitMEX, the Co-Founder, and CEO of the platform, Arthur Hayes officially confirmed the news by announcing it on Twitter on June 7.
It is now available for trading. Hayes tweeted saying: “Is $EOS a shitcoin or the real deal Holyfield? Trade $EOSM18 with 20x leverage on BitMEX.” According to AMB Crypto report, Hayes claims that he brings a strong understanding of the trading structure by adding EOS to their platform.

People had been eagerly waiting for the launch, and interestingly, the delay didn’t affect the reputation or the price as such. As previously reported, the EOS prices, in fact, went up more than 18% in the past week. Meanwhile, the latest survey by Finder.com predicted that EOS will be the best cryptocurrency of the year. Ten crypto experts who made up the panel of the Finder believes that it will be gaining over 200% between May 30 to Dec 31, 2018.
