Binance: EOS Governance Analysis
Binance recently carried out and published an analysis on the governance of EOS, highlighting all its problems and possible weaknesses. Many of these topics have already been discussed repeatedly within the community during 2019. Will EOS be able to improve once again and carry on the title of the most used public blockchain? Starting from a (failed) attempt to objectively define decentralization and measure it, it was explained the mechanism of delegated Proof of Stake running on EOS. In particular: "21 block producers (BPs) are elected by EOS token holders from a broader set of block producer candidates". To understand later whether EOS is decentralized or not, they referred to the concept of decentralization defined by Vitalik Buterin, founder of Ethereum, in 2017, according to which decentralization has 3 main objectives: 1. collusion resistance 2. fault tolerance 3. attack resistance learn more: https://www.eosgo.io/news/binance-eos-governance-analysis

VOICE Beta limited to the USA
The voice team has announced that the beta coming on February 14 will be limited only to the United States. According to the team, the choice is mainly due to two reasons. The goal of VOICE is to restore the public trust in the media, a topic that has been prevalent in recent years especially in the United States. They want to address the conflict directly to the source. Apparently the team dedicated to Voice development is mainly located in the United States. Focusing on this market they will be able to receive feedbacks from users and improve themselves in a more efficient manner. Once they start the beta testing period in the United States, they will expand into other English speaking countries and then expand globally. So the USA limitation is only temporary; we hope to see Voice open in other countries as soon as possible! Because that’s what we’re here for, and what we’re building for
EOSIO reaches a new transaction per second record: 9,656
During the last week a stress test was carried out on Jungle: an EOSIO testnet that has been active since before the launch of the EOS mainnet. In this last stress test a new record was confirmed regarding the number of transactions per second made in the chain, reaching 9,565 transactions! The transactions performed were a mixture of token transfers, empty transactions and deferred transactions launched by some participants with the sole objective of spamming the network. Participants included EOS Barcelona, EOS USA, Aloha EOS and eosDAC. "It is likely that a larger number of participants and/or optimization with minimally sized transactions would have set the maximum TPS over 10,000, which is an attractive milestone, but wasn’t the goal of the testing." In addition to the new record of transactions per second, the stress test also showed better overall network stability, as well as fewer forks.

LiquidX released, what benefits can it bring to EOS?
The LiquidApps team has released LiquidX, a new service that will allow any EOSIO and non-EOSIO chains to use the DAPP Network. Could this expansion bring further benefits to the EOS mainnet? "LiquidX makes the DAPP Network available for every EOSIO chain, and potentially non-EOSIO chains beyond. As explained in their article, the real strength of EOSIO chains is that they can be optimized not only vertically, for example by improving transaction efficiency, but also horizontally through the interoperability of new chains. The LiquidApps team has been constantly working with this goal in mind for over a year now, to make EOSIO chains (and not only those) more and more scalable and collaborative. LiquidX is the service that will allow EOSIO chains to communicate with each other in a decentralized way through the DAPP Network. Any EOSIO chain can implement the DAPP Network through a system contract under the multisig control of the Block Producers and interact with other chains through the DAPP layer. The expansion of the DAPP Network can only have positive results for the EOS mainnet. Apparently, the staking of DAPP tokens will remain in the EOS mainnet, where the settlement and service provisioning of the DAPP Network take place. Furthermore, it is assumed that the new chains are intended to be interoperability with the mainnet, thus increasing the potential number of users for a better user experience.
Block.one offers 200k USD to run ETH inside an EOS smart contract!

Genpool: Create your own voter reward proxy!
The GenerEOS team, one of the original BP candidates of EOS, just introduced a new platform that’s set to change proxies mechanics on the Mainnet. This sort of proxies started popping up on the EOS Mainnet over a year ago, initially these were only created by some of the Chinese BP candidates and neglected by the community in general. However since EOS Nation created their version of the Reward Proxy, one that voted for god BPs and provided rewards to the voters; this practice became accepted as part of the EOS Governance. The barrier to create such a proxy was still too high, and the competition for a good reward proxy was not there. Keeping it to only 3 major Western Reward Proxies and 2 Eastern: -EOS Nation Reward Proxy -Colin Crypto Reward Proxy -Voter Value Proxy -Newdex Proxy -Bigone Proxy Genpool is here to shake things up. Anyone can create their own proxy or view supported proxies and compare them before choosing to vote for one.

Chintai Merchant Network: Customized Leasing Platforms
Chintai announced their new service: the Chintai Merchant Network. Chintai is a DeFi engine for leasing and trading digital assets, their traditional exchange can be accessed at exchange.chintai.io. However through the Chintai Merchant Network anyone will have the tools to host their own custom DeFi products. Using the Chintai Merchant Network anyone can create his own asset exchange platform and managing it independently while using the Chintai on-chain engine. In this way the development costs are completely removed and it will be much easier to integrate a leasing system directly into dApps, for example for NFTs lending. "The Merchant Network allows for NFT leasing and trading to be seamlessly integrated into games. And if anyone wants to setup a secondary market place they could easily do so with a custom UI that reflects the experiences of a specific game and interests of a given community." All markets created using the Merchant Network will share the same order book to solve the problem of low liquidity.
