Six people left the top management of the crypto start-up Block.one. As CoinDesk writes, top managers have teamed up to create their own blockchain project StrongBlock.

Senior Vice President of Technology Operations David Moss, vice president of product Thomas Cox, vice president of infrastructure Brian Abramson and senior technology director Cory Lederer joined Block.one in 2017. During this period, the company through raised $ 4 billion thru ICO to create a decentralized environment for running EOS applications.

Now, together with freelance developers John Eric-Cook and Michael Mason, they will work on the development of a blockchain marketplace, which they could not realize in Block.one.

In August, David Moss, CEO of StrongBlock, compared the EOS blockchain with
by plane Boeing 787, and StrongBlock called "a factory of 787-x, manufactured on an individual order."

Currently, StrongBlock works in secret mode. The date of release of the new product is not reported.

In July, Block.one, which controls 10% of the total emission of EOS tokens, announced participation in the voting for block producers.

Huobi will launch an improved initial exchange offer (IEO) platform called Prime Lite.

Representatives of the company note that Huobi Prime is a “niche project”. Listing requirements for this platform are the same as for the main IEO site. However, tokensale on the new platform will have several differences from Huobi Prime:

  1. Shorter listing cycle and more flexible listing schedule
  2. Trading allocations for users are more flexible
  3. To facilitate the development of HT (Huobi Token), all HT exchanged will be burnt

The launch of the new platform is scheduled for May 9th. The first IEO on Prime Lite will be ThunderCore, which develops a blockchain with a bandwidth of more than 1,200 transactions per second. The project plans to raise about $ 500 thousand.
