Block.one provided the following update today (via email) regarding their highly anticipated ‘Voice’ social media platform:
“As with most emerging technologies, getting Voice in people’s hands requires more than some serious development. The legal environment is still evolving, and the joining of blockchain, tokenization, and social media is relatively uncharted territory. So, we’re in the midst of an ongoing, open conversation with legislators and regulators to make sure Voice is ready for users.
All to say, it’s a long and somewhat unpaved road to market. But we’re well on our way—we’re aiming for a beta launch on February 14th, 2020.
Between now and then, we want to share our journey with all of you. Industry change doesn’t happen overnight, and it doesn’t happen in a vacuum either. Voice won’t become everything it can be without your involvement, scrutiny, and feedback, at every stage of the process. So consider this blog an open invitation. Our latest findings. Our biggest challenges. Stories from Dan and the developers. Regulatory updates and behind-the-scenes peeks. We’re putting it out there, expecting change, so you can join us in walking this road to beta. Talk soon.”
They will be updating a “living” FAQ leading up to the launch.
