The blockchain-based platform facilitates the development of commercial-scale DApps on the EOS.IO program.
2019 saw EOS every other coin, experience a flurry of activities that affected the overall outlook of the coin.
We shall highlight some of these significant events below.
Release of EOSIO™ Explorer by EOSIO Labs™
In May this year, EOSIO labs announced the new version of EOSIO Explorer.
The graphic user interface was aimed at enhancing the developer experience of monitoring and interacting with EOSIO-based applications and systems in development.
As opposed to the earlier interface, which only enabled developers to use a less user-friendly command-line based toolchain, the new Explorer and their browser would allow developers to check blocks in their development nodes efficiently.
EOSIO™ Software Release
EOSIO also announced the release of a new pair of open-source EOSIO tools to create a robust mobile experience on EOSIO. The tools are their solution to providing friendly SDKs (Software Development Kits) for the growing number of mobile app users, which was aimed at enhancing primary mobile apps development on EOSIO, which includes EOSIO SDK for Swift programming language and EOSIO SDK for Java programming language.
Targeting these programming languages, according to EOSIO, was creating an opportunity for Android and iOS to leverage these capabilities.
Support from Crypto.com
In 2019, EOS also gained support from payments platform Crypto.com, which aims at making the buying, selling, sending, paying, tracking of cryptocurrencies much easier for its users. It is also boosting the use of EOS by integrating the cryptocurrency into several of its flagship services.
Crypto Earn Support
EOS also garnered support from Crypto Earn, a tool that enables users to receive interest on their coins and tokens.
MCO Visa Card Support
In addition to support from Crypto.com, they now have access to the MCO Visa Card, which gives consumers the much-needed freedom to spend digital assets anywhere that Visa is accepted. This includes in-store and online shopping, restaurants and hotels, among other consumer outlets, unlocking access to about 50 million possibilities.
EOSUSD: Monthly Time Frame

The Bears and Bulls Scenario
The bulls are currently not in control of the market. Now we wait for a definite move of price to ascertain its direction as we prepare for Q1 2020.
The trend has been in favor of the bears, however, for the momentum to continue to the downside, the recent low of $2.3548 must be taken out with a breakdown close.
