No longer excellent
As reported by U.Today, EOS was named the best digital currency by Weiss Ratings, thus trumping Bitcoin and Ethereum. The coin managed to take the cake after getting the highest mark in the tech/adoption department. This recognition didn’t go unnoticed – the Ethereum competitor experienced a double-digit price increase shortly after the announcement.
However, the news about Block.one’s equity buyout recently amplified centralization concerns that have been plaguing the sixth biggest cryptocurrency for a long time. As a result, EOS now has an uncomfortable minus next to its A.
The decentralization challenge
The agency claims that it’s Cardano’s turn to step into the breach and launch a “truly decentralized” Blockchain that is based on the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) algorithm. IOHK, which is spearheaded by Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson, recently released the new Cardano roadmap.
Now, it remains to be seen whether Shelley, the project’s next development phase that is supposed to bring complete decentralization, turns out to be successful.
IOTA, another prominent Blockchain 3.0 project, got rid of its centralized coordinator with the help of the long-awaited ‘Coordicide’ update.
