EOS Metal built a Names explorer. It’s a really simple website that helps you come up with ideas for available 12 character account names. They updated it in November to include LEET, REVERSE and PLURAL style names. You can read about their update here.

In late November, EOS Metal published their first financial report.

EOS metal was one of the block producers that financially supported the procurement of an attorney to write a letter in support of EOS not being a security. This was used to send to BITTREX and other exchanges.
