- upvote and “voice” (promote) your posts to other users
A look at the ui, pretty sexy.

- when people get likes they ear Voice Tokens
- more you get liked the more you get shown
Uses of Voice Token
- can promote your content to more people
- can increase the visibility of posts and comments on posts “voice it”
- can move a comment up to the top of the discussion
- increasing visibility of the comment will also increase visibility of the post that was commented on
- reduces need for followers (imagine all the follower spam out there on insta, etc)
- many more plans to use voice tokens in the future
Everybody who signs up for voice will get a free account on EOS.
Voice can be used to login to other crypto sites (think facebook social login), a detail that people likely missed, but should be HUGE.
