Block.one Cleared the Fud Surrounding Launch of Its Social Network


  • OnVoice has mentioned in their FAQs that in the beta version, it will host in a purpose-made EOSIO blockchain.
  • As soon as the software goes out of the beta version, the social network would move to the EOS mainnet, where Block.one had bought 3.3 million EOS of RAM in May.

One of the significant crypto media outlets, which goes by the name Coindesk, has recently published an article which was written by Brady Dale. The article attempts to FUD on EOS as claimed by Brendan Blumer, ceo of Block.one.

The article was titled “Block.One Will Not Launch Its Social Network on EOS”. The writer has given out various statements regarding the same issue. The main agenda of the article appears out to be the declaration of the promise made by Block.one.

In the post by Coindesk, it was highlighted that  the promise made by block.one that the Voice would work on the EOS mainnet, However, it seems like the plans to do the same have changed. Post the publishing of the article, a lot of questions, as well as FUD’s raised by both the Western and the Eastern Community.

Clearly stating, Voice has mentioned in their FAQs that in the beta version, it will host in a purpose-made EOSIO blockchain. Additionally, they would also like to leverage the EOS Public Blockchain in the future.

Brendan Blumer’s ‘VOICE’ went unheard

These actions are undertaken quite understandable. This is due to tue reason that the software is still running on the beta version. The beta version of Voice would be available from February 14.

The speculations suggest that it will be released on the newly announced Official EOSIO Testnet: testnet.eos.io. As soon as the software goes out of the beta version, the social network would move to the EOS mainnet, where Block.one had bought 3.3 million EOS of RAM in May.

They had stated that their intent is on building on top of the system. Brendan Blumer had also addressed this article and tweeted regarding the same. 

His tweet was a series of threads and said that February 14 was a technical beta where someone can test and iterate. In the coming future, publishing to public chains will diversify moderation and strengthen censorship resistance.

He also added that he felt that the article published by Coindesk was misleading, and they refused to edit.

He added with a hope to fix journalism. In the future, journalists would be held accountable for their words by the public. Much how Uber freed riders from being captive audiences, blockchain would do the same for media readers.

He also wished for full interaction transparency, on-article public engagement, and incentivized accuracy. He also tagged Brady Dale in his tweet and talked about his attempt to provide factual accuracy, but all of them ignored.

It was further, mentioned in tweet thread that the write instead of correcting the information is Proud of misleading readers of the platform, on that brendan shared screenshot of his mails to coindesk.
