One of the official creators of the data blocks of the network the EOS, authorized to decisions through Consensus, offered users a financial reward for choice of node as a proxy.
In a post published on Medium, the owner of EOS-node-stated that “after the delegate users Starteos.io the authority of the proxy server, they will be able to obtain continuous and stable income in the cryptocurrency EOS”. The text was also explained in detail how to vote for block-producer, so he “became” a proxy server.

“Cryptocurrency “winter” has come. How much faith you have lost?”, — asks the author of the post. — “Starteos going to stay with YOU, our most important and best friends! And we want to share with you revenue and to overcome all the difficulties together.”

However, now it is not clear whether decentralization is really the goal of EOS. As stated earlier, this fall’s technical Director Dan Larimer (Daniel Larimer), the network was originally conceived not as decentralized. Larimer noted that the real goal EOS always had the desire to get rid of the censorship and increase resistance to forced deactivation”.

To do this, the arbitrator had to cancel already confirmed the transaction, it is impermissible for platforms positioning themselves as a trusted and transparent platform.
