Announcing EOSfinex - DEX on EOS.IO
Bitfinex, one of the worlds most advanced cryptocurrency platforms, has announced they are going to build EOSfinex, the first high performance decentralised exchange (DEX) powered by EOS.IO technology. This is big news for the EOS.IO project - not only is it going to demonstrate the power of a DEX on next generation blockchain technology, but it will prove EOS’s versatility and scalability. The blockchain community has been crying out for a usable decentralised exchange and Bitfinex's expertise and reputation combined with the performance and usability of an EOS.IO blockchain could really deliver.
Our own Brock Pierce vows to donate $1B from his crypto fortune to an EOS.IO charity DAC
Brock Pierce (Block.One co-founder) has announced his intent to donate $1B from his own crypto fortune into a decentralised autonomous community DAC run on an EOS.IO based blockchain. Governed by a constitution, the community will be registered as a charitable organization, he says, whose participants will receive voting rights to allocate its money. It’s not everyday someone donates that sum of money (being crypto or otherwise) to any charitable cause. Brock deserves a lot of credit for this as he paves the way for future charitable crypto projects - he is leading from the front in living his own mantra of a true billionaire being someone who makes a difference to a billion lives.

EOS Crowdsale Stats
As you’d come to expect by now in the blockchain world, there was a bounce back towards the end of our weekly report which showed an increase of EOS market cap in excess of $1B, perhaps due to positive news coming from the SEC and South Korea. Regardless of politics, EOS contributions remained steady as the year long crowdsale edges closer to June 30.
