However, controversy erupted a few months back when ConsenSys commissioned a thorough benchmarking of EOS through a firm known as Whiteblock and claimed that EOS may not be a blockchain at all but rather a cloud service designed for computation built on a centralized premise.

Huobi Global CEO Livio Weng, said, "Huobi DM can be a powerful tool in managing risk in EOS and other cryptocurrencies. That's an important factor when dealing with bear markets, such as the one we find ourselves in now."

"As an EOS supernode, Huobi Pool has placed its ecological development high on its list of priorities. Launching this EOS exchange is simply the next logical step in our support", Weng added further.
