EOS is currently trading at $8.69, up about 8.5 percent over a 24 hour period to press time. The EOS platform, which launched at the beginning of June after completing its year-long, $4 billion Initial Coin Offering (ICO), has been having governance problems due to the system’s lack of centralized enforcement over their Block Producers (BP).
