User Identity Verification to be a Top Priority for New Block.one Social Media Platform Voice

The new social media created by Block.one, the company behind EOS is designed to ensure only real humans get on it. This the company intends to achieve by ensuring that all members on the platform have their identity verified, the company said on Saturday.

“It’s never been more important to know that who we are interacting with and who we are getting information from is a real person who’s accountable for what they share,” CEO  Brendan Blumer said.

The company has indicated willingness to spend a lot of money for identity verification using government issued IDs to ensure no bots use the platform, although requirements will vary with countries. The platform, Voice is set to expose the identity weaknesses in existing platforms, a source told CoinDesk.

The economy of the platform will be based on the Voice token, Block.one Co-founder and CTO Dan Larimer said at the launch on Saturday. A source said all Voice users will receive Voice tokens on a daily basis that can be used to popularize their messages on the platform, while some of the tokens go to content creators and some get burnt in order to moderate the circulating volume of the token.

On how to gain wide adoption, Block.one intends to attract influencers and content creators with the Voice token which is used as a reward token on the platform. The company is also engaging in a major campaign to get words on the platform out to as many potential users as possible.

Block.one launched its social media platform Voice on Saturday, promising to not turn its users into product as most social media platforms do. The platform will run on the EOS blockchain and with every post or content being public. The CEO of Block.one said Voice is out to correct the ills on existing social media platforms and to give every user a voice.

This could be a good option to existing social media because platforms such as Facebook have not been the most secure of platforms and that has led to information theft and misuse on the internet. With the new blockchain-based social media platform could correct not just information abuse but also ensure a fair use of data.
