EOS mainnet finally launched (and more crypto updates)

In this cryptocurrency news roundup, we look at the EOS mainnet launch. The price of EOS has rallied by more than 17% after the mainnet release partly due to the mainnet software release by Block.one and partly with the organic rally in the market. EOS cryptocurrency is currently trading at $14.60 in the market.

In an interesting report that’s trending currently, Bitcoin has given investors 198% return since the last year, beating the returns by even the top Fortune 500 companies. Another boost for Bitcoin has come from IMF which has put up an image of BTC showcasing it as the future of payments. Lastly, we shift our attention to Ethereum where its co-founder Vitalik Buterin has said that ETH could eventually process 1 million transactions per second thanks to techniques such as Plasma and Sharding.
