After a long delay and a lot of uncertainty in the EOS news, the Voice social network officially launched on the cryptocurrency’s blockchain. The model that this new network promises upon is very similar to Reddit, in which users will be rewarded for high quality content.
As we already reported before, the beta version of the Voice social network was launched in February 2020, and the founders described the project as a secure and decentralized alternative to the famous Facebook as well as other networks like Reddit and Twitter. After the long delay and some of the past troubles, we can see that Voice was officially launched yesterday.
An official post describes how the Voice social network can be tested by all users. However, it also details that only members who are invited to join the testers can post content and interact with other users on the platform – something that is part of restrictions which will remain in place until 15 August, 2020, until all of the beta tests are completed.
The CEO of the Voice social network, Salah Michael Zalatimo, was quite optimistic and described how the network wants to give people back the control over their data, as well as offer a decentralized network which is free of censorship. They obviously see Voice as an alternative to Facebook but probably something similar to Reddit. As we saw in the cryptonews, the CEO said that many social networks nowadays are corrupt and are subject to the opinion of many governments worldwide that it is time to offer an alternative:
“This global moment has fully exposed the corrupt social spaces created by Big Tech. It’s time to break away and put humans first. We need your help. It’s time for social as it should be,” Zalatimo noted.
What’s also worth mentioning is that users of the new platform will get rewards with the voice taken if they publish relevant and high quality content and if their contributions are liked, commented and recognized as valuable and legit.
The Voice social network was supposed to be launched in June 2019, but due to some obstacles, there was a delay. A sum of $150 million was injected to make the launch a reality.
