The cat is finally out of the bag! Block.one has announced the launch of a new decentralised social media network on the EOS blockchain. The new social platform is called Voice and will record all user actions on the EOS Blockchain. Block.one is the parent company of EOS.
The truth is, current social media platforms are designed to use their users. It’s the platform, not the user, that reaps the reward.Brendan Blumer, CEO of Block.one, in a press release.
The social platform will utilise a new token called Voice token. Users can sign up for beta access here.
Block.one is not the first cryptocurrency business to get into social networking. Steemit is the most popular decentralised social network which leverages the Steem blockchain whereas Kik Interactive is another company that runs a social network that utilises Kin tokens.
It is interesting that a deep-pocketed cryptocurrency company like Block.one is trying to disrupt the social media space. The most successful social media company, Facebook, is working in another direction by exploring a cryptocurrency for its platform.
Will ‘Voice’ find enough users to voice their opinions on the platform?
