The blockchain-based social media platform Voice briefly went live a day ahead of its scheduled launch on July 4th.
Voice, developed by EOSIO creator Block.one was originally scheduled for launch on the United State’s Independence Day. However, the project briefly went live on July 3rd, with the platform’s main page temporarily displaying posts from several different accounts featuring likes and comments.
The website was subsequently pulled, with the page displaying an “Error 1020” message in the interim.
Desipte the miscue, the social media platform was able to initiate its official launch the following day with the iOS app also being made available.
We’ve wanted more from social media for a while.
But today, we need more.
— Voice (@voicesociaI) July 3, 2020
As previously reported, Voice pivoted its planned launch date in Fall 2020 to July in response to global social unrest. The new platform, which utilizes blockchain technology and biometric authentication to cut down on the number of spam users, has placed an emphasis on real interactions, news, and connections.
