New EOS Service Incentivizes Centralization of Block Producers

In the cryptocurrency world, there are always some serious allegations to be found. In the case of EOS, it seems that “vote buying” is rather common, according to some sources.

Whenever a governance model is introduced, vote buying will become a thing.

EOS Block Producers may Begin Colluding

In politics, this has been the norm for many decades now.

Transferring that attitude to cryptocurrency governance models is not the road to be taken.

Unfortunately, it would appear that EOS block producers may have an incentive to behave badly.

Through a new service they can share block rewards with whoever votes for them.

The service provider, known as Genpool, is quite interesting, but also potentially harmful.

It seems likely that solutions like these will lead to even more centralization among block producers.

In fact, major BPs could collude against others to receive more votes and pay voters with a share of the block reward.

As devious as that approach would be, it is also completely legal courtesy of Genpool. 

It is not the first time services like these launch for EOS either.

In Asia, they are relatively common, albeit none of them cater to English speakers.

How all of this will affect this particular ecosystem, remains to be determined at this stage.
