Ethereum May Have been Attacked By EOS
There have been insinuations that EOS, the decentralized platform that was dubbed “Ethereum killer” may have been responsible for series of airdrops that were hurriedly scheduled. Some Reddit users were of the opinion that “Every day up until the launch of the EOS platform, which was June 6th, gas prices increased due to “Airdrop” tokens.
Thousands of random tokens, with no website, or bootstrapped template websites made in hours. Wasting hundreds of ethereum daily, hundreds of thousands of dollars to drop tokens.
This happened up until the launch of EOS, on the 6th, then immediately stopped. In one day, gas prices dropped back to normal.”
