EOS seems to be having a good performance in the market compared to other digital assets. Indeed, EOS is currently the best performing asset among the top 40 and the second-best performing among the top 80 cryptos. This could be related to an announcement that Block.one is expected to make on June 1.
EOS Surges Before Block.One Announcement
Block.One has been purchasing 10 percent of its stock back from different investors, including Michael Novogratz. The firm has already bought $71.2 million from Novogratz and continues to purchase more stock from other companies.
