Google Cloud has joined the EOS blockchain community with the intent of becoming a block producer. This would require an improvement of the EOS community. There are 21 block producers in total on the EOS blockchain and the protocol has often been criticized for excessive centralization. 

Block.One also announced that a former Goldman Sachs executive named R. Martin Chavez will be leading the company’s advisory board.

The company behind EOS, Block.One, was originally co-founded by current independent presidential candidate, Brock Pierce — though the aspiring politician was removed from the company several years ago. Throughout his career, Pierce has been embroiled in a number of controversies.

This is a developing story that will be updated.
