EOS block producers allegedly 'ordered' to freeze 27 accounts, 'reason' to continue:
It was reported that producers of EOS (BP) blocks received an emergency order to refuse to process transactions for 27 accounts, according to a tweet published yesterday, June 22.
Twitter user @ferdousbhai, who tweeted the screenshot of the alleged EOS Core Arbitration Forum (ECAF), wrote in the comments that he got the image of a private Telegram group for EOS BPs, since his team is a candidate of block producer.
The unconfirmed screenshot of the ECAF order states that the accounts must be frozen "pending an additional review of the claims by an Arbitrator" and that the "logic and reasoning" for the order will be published on a date later.
Sam Sapoznick, who signed the order as the ECAF Emergency Interim Arbiter, describes himself as a "blockchain realist" on his LinkedIn with his most recent work cataloged as a landscaper in "Gardens From Here" over the past nine years. Neither ECAF nor Sapoznick have responded to a request for confirmation by Cointelegraph before publication.
The EOS BP had been criticized by crypto Twitter earlier this week when they had overruled an ECAF decision and froze seven accounts associated with phishing scams. Subsequently, the ECAF retroactively ordered the freezing of accounts, but the decision-making process of the EOS BP telephone conference caused some to question the decentralized system of EOS.
Bitcoin defender (BTC) Charlie Shrem, who had tweeted about the first freezes of EOS accounts earlier this week, retweeted the alleged screenshot of the EFAC order yesterday:
EOS's path to launch its mainnet in June had already hit some inconveniences after ending its initial offer of 4 billion dollars (ICO) coins on June 1. Its mainnet became operational on July 15 after it crossed 15 percent - or 150 million, but two days after launch, the mainnet experienced a "pause" of four hours.
