EOS Block creator EOSHenzen is the 59th largest block producer and was accused of creating multiple EOS accounts and violating other rules according to the members from the community and other block producers. Let’s find out more about this information in the EOS news today.
As per the reports:
“When threatened with removal, these sockpuppet Block Producer accounts created … perfunctory, superficial websites (within 1 day) to ‘conform to standards’ in order to avoid removal. Same site design. Same title font. Same non-existent information. They’re the same BP.”
Before this, AlohaEOS and other producers wanted to remove the six accounts on the grounds that they don’t have a website or means of contact. Also, in order to be compliant with the part of the bock producer agreement, the accounts registered a few websites that were registered to the EOS block creator EOSHenzen. The alleged accounts of the block creator didn’t attract enough votes to become the top 21 or active block producers. They have no power but they also collect financial rewards up to $300 of EOS per account each day.
EOS’s constitution and block producer Agreement does not forbid the block producers from creating multiple accounts but it seems that by doing this, they will abuse the entire system. Given that the block producers are keeping their stance, it is possible that a future vote will be held to remove the sockpuppet accounts. EOS New York has also alleged that the crypto exchange platform Bithumb is responsible for funding the voting proxy that will support the six accounts. Bithumb was only voting for block producers since June but EOS New York was not available for comment on why their linked transaction is out of order.
Some of the EOS users are advocating for a permanent change to the EOS voting system with one token, one vote system that will ensure that voting for a single block producer will carry more weight than voting for multiple block producers and this will discourage sockpuppets in the future. There is another option as well. Block.one, the company behind EOS, announced the plans to vote for block producers since it holds 9.5% of the EOS supply which gives it a small but significant amount of power.
