Block.one Has Absorbed One of EOS's Long-Standing Block Producers

Block.one, the main software company behind EOS, has announced that it will acquire the team of developers at EOS New York, one of EOS’ long-standing block producers.

Website Shuts Down

EOS New York’s website previously offered general information about EOS and its role as a block producer, as well as a number of tools for developers and users.

Block.one also runs a social network called Voice, which was beta-launched in February.

It additionally funds development in the EOS ecosyste...
