EOS, the fifth biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, has long been criticized as one of the most centralized projects in the crypto space, giving Ripple a run for its money. Cryptocurrency exchange that allows trading EOS, including Bithumb and OKEx, are considered to be among its biggest holders.
Centralization is feared by the crypto crowd due to the fact that top holders have too much leverage over the voting process on the network. The immense power concentrated in the hands of crypto whales is disheartening for investors.
