Voice — a crypto social network on EOS blockchain

  • uses EOS blockchain
  • Voice Token

“fairest token ever in the world.” — Dan Larimer

“Created by real people, producing real content and liked by real people.”

  • multistep authentication process
  • designed to prevent abuse
  • share content
  • upvote and “voice” (promote) your posts to other users

A look at the ui, pretty sexy.

posts include

  • images
  • video
  • web links
  • twitter shares (trolling twitter i guess)
  • supports long form content (kinda like a blog) or short like a tweet

Likes

  • 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.

You can sign up at https://www.voice.com
