Block.One's ‘Voice' Social Network Has An Open Door Policy To Other Blockchains, Not Just EOS

During its June ICO, Block.one had indicated that its Facebook rivaling social network dubbed Voice, would be launched on the EOS network. However, plans seems to have changed as CoinDesk reports.

Voice has been touted as a different form of social media network which will have in-built crypto and have the capacity to deal with bots since each account will be verified. However, after the announcement in June, the firm went mum but in Dec, it announced that Voice will be launched on Feb. 14.

The announcement came with additional information like a FAQ page found on the Voice website which indicated that a private EOSIO software will be used to run the application. However, the firm was non-committal on whether Voice will be run on EOS saying that other blockchain networks can also be used.

The statement in the FAQ is contrary to a press statement made in June which indicated that the social network would run exclusively on EOS. Still in June, to indicate its commitment to run on EOS, Block.one had reserved a large space of RAM within the mainnet.

Asked to comment on the latest developments, Block.one spokesperson turned down the request.

It is important to understand that Block.one mostly develops software but they are mostly run by other firms. For instance, while it developed EOSIO software, it was launched by a group of organizations from different parts of the world to what is today known as EOS.

Despite the eminent uncertainty, the CEO of EOS Dublin, Sharif Bouktila, remains bullish that Block.one will use the EOSIO for Voice. He explained that if Block.one fails run its apps on the EOS it would raise eyebrows in the industry as who else is better suited to use the blockchain. He said,

“There hasn’t been a decision that I can see but if Block.one didn’t need to use the EOS mainnet for its apps it would raise serious questions as to why and who else should use it.”

EOS has been in the news for the wrong reasons in the recent past due to performance issues. There have been allegations companies running on EOS prioritize speculative profits rather than the technology. The revelation of EIDOS smart contract that paid users for the number of transactions made is just one of the many. These could be the reasons why Block.one is considering other blockchains.
