We have previously stated that we will be unable to verify any arbitration rulings unless received on-chain. On 13 July 2018 at 22:12 UTC we received a ruling on-chain in accordance with the ECAF proposed communication method. We understand the sensitive nature of these proceedings and for that reason we are publishing this information in detail. In the future, we will not be providing announcements for every ECAF arbitration action. Please look to ECAF for communications regarding notifications of rulings or announcements.
