According to the announcement’s teaser site, Block.one is gearing up to release a video that founder Dan Larimer has described as the “biggest news since [the] eosio announcement.”
There has been a flurry of speculation as to what the announcement could entail. According to Invest in Blockchain, Block.one could be gearing up to release news related to the Trump administration or even a new decentralized social media platform designed to supplant Steem.
As we previously reported, Block.one is currently offering to repurchase 10% of its stock, at a valuation of about $2.3 billion. Block.one did not publicly share the reasoning behind the share buyback, but the news does come roughly a year after the startup payed around $300 million to acquire 13.8% of its outstanding shares.
EOS’s major announcement couldn’t come at a better time, as the altcoin gained a listing on Coinbase’s retail platform on Thursday.
EOS is currently up over 13% on the day to $8.50, giving the altcoin a $7.79 billion market cap.
