If you are still storing EOS on the Ethereum blockchain, now is the time to move the funds. EOS Token will undergo a swap for its own native token on June 1. There is a section at EOSIO website for a new token distribution and a registration of Ethereum addresses so that associated balances are correctly identified after the release of EOSIO v1.0. EOS Tokens are not being offered to US and Chinese citizens.

The swap is officially backed by Binance, Bitfinex, Bithumb, Zebpay, Kraken and Kucoin. The exchanges will handle all the technical requirements involved. EOSIO is going live on June 2. Block.one is neither launching nor operating the public blockchain itself - it provides the tools for the community to build up from the EOS platform. Because the EOS blockchain is a distributed consensus mechanism, only the community can launch it.

Market-wise, the characteristics for EOS at the moment of publication are as follows:

Average price 12.35 USD
Market cap 10,983,246,432 USD
Volume (24H) 1,620,470,000 USD

The Poloniex exchange listed EOS cryptocurreny.

Since acquiring Poloniex five months ago, we’ve primarily focused on improving the core product experience and stabilizing the performance of the exchange. We improved deposit and withdrawal reliability, updated our customer onboarding process and cleared over 175,000 legacy support tickets. We are now also investing in new ways to grow Poloniex into a premiere destination for crypto asset trading — the addition of EOS is just the first step. [...] At this time, we are only planning to support EOS mainnet tokens and will not be accepting deposits of the ERC-20 variant or providing conversion to mainnet tokens. In addition, we will not be supporting EOS airdrops for the time being.
