Bloomberg accused of breaching embargo agreement by Block.one CEO

Block.one, the company behind the world’s fifth-biggest cryptocurrency, EOS, announced the launch of its blockchain-based social media platform, Voice yesterday. First reported on by Bloomberg, Block.one CEO Brendan Blumer has now accused the publication of breaking the news before the scheduled event.

Many in the community sided with Blumer, with some users saying Bloomberg should be sued while others slated the journalist.
