  • Bitfinex users now can deposit and withdraw EOS.

EOS/USD is changing hands at $10.68.   The coin spiked 2% during early Asian hours recovering from $10.20 low. EOS market value is registered at $9.5B with average daily trading volumes $725M. The upside momentum was accompanied by a short-term volatility spike, however, it is still subdued on a longer-term timeframe

The upside movement might have been triggered by the announcement that Bitfinex traders now can deposit and withdraw EOS – the first time after the transition from Ethereum blockchain to EOS mainnet.  

Basically, it means that the transition to  EOS.IO has completed successfully. The first user that received EOS  deposit address on Bitfinex,  noted the high speed of the blockchain and free of charge transactions.
