EOS gets down
EOS gets down by 8 percent on the day which is also down from its recent high of the $3 price level per token last week and most of the market is in red as we are about to see in the EOS news below.EOS has been riding a slight uptick in the price after the decision from the SEC that many of the analysts believed that this is an implicit green light for the token as a non-security. At the start of October, the Securities and Exchange Commission sanctioned the EOS issues Block.one over its 2017 ICO but only fined the company a half percent of the billions it had raised during the sale. After the ruling of the SEC, the price of the EOS jumped by more than 4 percent but the rally didn’t last. The token lost most of the gains and after the drop to around $2.90 days after the SEC ruling. The price of EOS has since corrected to around $2.93 per token. This is not only bad news for the EOS holders. Earlier this week, Block.one was forced to address a hack that dramatically affected the EOS-based gambling platform EOSPlay. More than 110,000 worth of EOS funds disappeared in a matter of moments as a result of the hack. EOS gets down now after the recent developments.EOS Creator Block. One has to pay up to $24 million in penalties for conducting unregistered securities sale according to the US Securities and Exchange Commission announced just a few days ago as per the reports that we have in our crypto news today.The SEC stated in a press release that Block. One ‘’raised the equivalent of several billion dollars’’ over a one-year period in an unregistered initial coin offering where a total of $4.1 billion was raised and the EOS creator agreed to settle the charges according to the SEC. The fine amounts to 0.0058 percent of the initial raise. The press release also highlighted that Block. One’s token sale started very soon before the SEC released the DAO reports but it ‘’continued for nearly a year after the report’s publication.’’ The company didn’t comply with the securities registration requirements and did not register the sale as the SEC stated.

struggle continues
The market struggle continues today, initiated by Bitcoin's constant up-and-down moments which make the total crypto market cap face a strong resistance near the $218 billion and $220 billion levels.As we can see in the altcoin news today, the Litecoin (LTC) price is still trading well below the main $60 resistance area, while the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) price is correcting gains and could test the $220 support line.Stellar (XLM) is above the $0.06 support area, and the EOS coin news indicate that the cryptocurrency recently failed to surpass the $3.250 resistance and is right now declining towards $3.050.In our Bitcoin Cash news, it is noticeable that the BCH price faces resistance as we speak and is somewhere near the $235 and $240 levels in that manner.The BCH/USD pair is correcting lower towards the $225 level now and it seems like the price could also test the $220 support area in the near term. The struggle continues as the main supports on the downside are near the $205 level. On the upside, it is evident that a clear break above $240 is needed for more gains towards the $250 and $265 levels.On the other hand, the Litecoin news now show that LTC recovered above the $55 level and struggled to gain momentum above $58.50, remaining well below the key $60 resistance area. The price is currently correcting lower and may soon test the $55 support area.EOS is part of the weak coins as the struggle continues. After it climbed higher recently and tested the $3.25 resistance area, the sellers appeared and brought the coin back to the $3.20 level. If there are more downsides soon, the price could test the $3.05 support area in the near term.Stellar (XLM) meanwhile climbed higher positively above the $0.0620 level. The Stellar Lumens news are actually the only bright side right now and it seems like the price could test higher levels soon.When looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap in the daily and weekly charts, we can see that the struggle continues. The total crypto market cap is facing strong resistance near the $218 and $220 billion levels - and the 100 SMA is also acting as crucial resistance point. A clear break above the $220 billion resistance and close above the 100 SMA is right now needed for an upside acceleration in the short term.

EOS Price Increases By 10% After Block.One Settlement

EOS gets down
EOS price increases after the Securities and Exchange Commission has made a settlement with the blockchain company Block.one over the yearlong token sale for EOS as we reported earlier in the altcoin news today.The EOS token sale was the largest one of the year raising over $4 billion by naturally attracting the attention of the regulators. The SEC charged the blockchain company for conducting an unregistered initial coin offering of the tokens between 2017 and 2018 but Block.one neither confirmed nor denied the allegations but has agreed to pay a one-time fine of $24 million. The official statement found that the company used the funds for general expenses such as the promotion of the platform and software development and it stated that the company didn’t register the ICO as a securities offering according to the federal laws nor did it qualify for the registration requirements. The co-director of the SEC Division of Enforcement Stephanie Avakian stated:
 “A number of US investors participated in Block.one’s ICO. Companies that offer or sell securities to US investors must comply with the securities laws, irrespective of the industry they operate in or the labels they place on the investment products they offer.”
The company posted a response stating that the ERC-20 tokens were sold but are no longer traded or in circulation. The platform shifted off the Ethereum blockchain last year and on to its own EOSIO mainnet. The company added that the SEC granted an important waiver so that it won't become subject to restrictions that would apply usually with settlements of this type. It also added that this only shows that the regulator has been satisfied by Block.one’s ongoing compliance:
 “We are excited to resolve these discussions with the SEC and are committed to ongoing collaboration with regulators and policymakers as the world continues to develop more clarity around compliance frameworks for digital assets.”
As per the blockchain news today, the settlement news is bullish for the platform and EOS price increases today and the token is one of the top performers at the time of writing with a 10% pump on the day from $2.75 to $3.10. The daily volume surged from the $1 billion to $2 billion as EOS recently hard forked and hit a weekly high.
