Block.one, the company behind the EOSIO software, announced the beta launch date for its new social media platform Voice.
According to an official update published Dec. 5, the beta for Voice will launch on Feb. 14, 2020. First announced in June, Voice seeks to differentiate itself from the rest of social media platforms by relying upon EOS and blockchain.
The official update reads,
Voice: a blockchain-powered social network that rewires the formula in users’ favor—cutting out the opaque one-sided data auctioneering, eliminating the hidden algorithms, and cycling value back into users’ hands in the form of the Voice Token.
Users earn Voice Tokens by engaging on the platform, which the post refers to as “being you, and expressing your voice.” According to the update, users cash in on Voice Tokens in order to draw greater attention to their content, thereby creating a network where “what’s good for the platform is also good for you.”
Voice claims that “tens of thousands” of users have already registered for the beta and that the creators are working with “legislators and regulators” ahead of the launch.
