EOS.IO ‘’Voice’’ Social Network Has An Official Launch Date

Published

eosio
The parent company of EOSIO, Block.one, published launch date for their new social network Voice. Beta version of Voice the firm plans to launch on February 14th, 2020. The publication also implies that over the past few months “tens of thousands” of users were signed up for the new social network. Let’s find out more about the EOS news today.Voice has, in addition, published a new FAQ page that states the direction of the project. Expectedly, Voice following other blockchain-based social networks will implement a cryptocurrency reward system and will make an attempt to reinvent content models. Voice was originally unveiled in June of 2019, however, this is the first time that significant information is published by the project.Voice will distribute crypto to its users regularly with the users that publish popular content will be rewarded with extra coins. This will provide an opportunity for Voce’s users to have their “voice” heard, crypto holders could bid on comment space, the comments of the ones that have the will to spend the biggest chunk of crypto will be shown first.It is unknown if the monetary value will be a property of Voice tokens, or whether users will have the opportunity to exchange tokens on the open market for EOSIO. Whatsoever, Voice gives the suggestion that in future it will introduce further use:
“Voice Tokens are conceived as the gateway to all forms of promotion and advertising on the platform.”
Voice will not be an anonymous platform but a transparent one. It will ask users to identify themselves in order to publish content, thus eliminating fake accounts, catfishing, and bots.
“By allowing users to see who and how much is behind promoted content, it makes promotion more engaging and less manipulative,” Block.one states.
Voice will compete with few crypto reward systems. Steemit, created by EOS founder Dan Larimer, is a certain forerunner of Voice. Brave, Coil, and Minds all share certain similarities- the crypto reward system- with Voice. Libra is another platform that could be compared although it is not a reward token, it will be a part of the famous Facebook social network, the Empire of Mark Zuckerberg.

Weiss Ratings Slides EOS Down The Ranks Due To Centralization

Published

Weiss ratings slides EOS down the ranks, downgrading the project due to centralization as we are reading in today’s EOS news.Weiss ratings slides EOS from B to C- despite the current favorable estimations in the past, and the main reason was the major influence of the big token holders which could decide how to sway the network resources. The EOS blockchain gained its speed from the feature of about 21 block producers which transpire transaction information. Spreading the latest state of the distributed ledger is easier, compared to Bitcoin’s increase to above 9,300 anonymous nodes.The EOS constitution also has special cases for blockchain accounts which are a feature that has been useful during hack attacks but also means that the transactions can be censored centrally. The concentration of resources in only a few ‘’whales’’ that could decide where to allocate the activities. This is also one of the reasons why the EIDOS token spread massively thus consumed most of the transactions on the EOS network.The EOS is a network much similar to older ones like BitShares as well as Steemit and those networks showed in the past that the influence of whales can be immense and that only two nodes could even broadcast about million of free transactions. Other networks such as Lisk managed to show that the election process for delegates ended up with the voting power getting accumulated in the hands of only a few delegates. All of them were able to vote each other into place without having to resorts to regular user votes.EOS trades currently at $2.75 which shows a gradual decline from the mid-year peak above $6,00 and the coin erased most of the gains for 2019 and is now on a path to reach lows that have not been seen since the bear market of 2018. According to blocktivity, the network seems to be carrying more than 43 million transactions per day. Most of those now below to minting EIDOS tokens while the other transactions that were related to distributed app activity and EOS even saw accusations that most of its dapps are visited by bots that mask the real usage statistics.
