In a blog post, the Foundation announced that most members of the ESO community are not satisfied with Block.one:
“Block.one has not kept its word regarding past promises and that both the community and individual EOS users have been harmed as a result.”
The Foundation announced they went through with Block.one to find common ground but both parties engaged in discussions in an attempt to settle the issues in a fair manner. ENF noted that Block.one however walked away from the negotiations and as a result, the block producers of EOS decided it was necessary to freeze the vesting for the future EOS token earnings for Block.one.
Back in 2018, Block.one conducted an initial coin offering selling 900 million tokens for $4 billion which was the biggest ICO held during that time but since then, most have been disappointed by the direction that the company took. A few months back, La Rose described EOS as a failure and cited the market cap and the drop in value saying it was a terrible financial and time investment. He also noted that the community lost key developers and turned away from the development and shifted towards asset management.
As recently reported, After voting to halt payments to Block.One due to the lack of financial transparency and slow progress, the EOS community will take control of the technical development of the chain. According to the press release, the EOS community will work under the guidance of the EOS Network Foundation and Dan Larimer.
