Nevertheless, Blumer still hasn’t officially confirmed this information.
What We Know about Voice
Block.one positions Voice as a transparent social media platform where the value of content is used to sustain the community. As Coinspeaker has already reported, the platform will run on the EOS blockchain network. It means that all the content published and recorded will be open to the public.
Creators of content will get rewards in the VOICE tokens. It will be impossible to buy the VOICE token or to mine it. But a daily airdrop will give a chance for everyone to become VOICE owner.
The team staying behind the platform believes that the way of distributing tokens via an airdrop is the fairest distribution. Whether it really will be so, only time will show. Nevertheless, it’s already clear that now the company tries to attract content creators. And it strives to offer them real opportunities to get significant revenue.
Block.one Works with a Lobbying Firm
It has been revealed that the company is now a client of international law firm Holland & Knight LLP. The firm provides Block.one with lobbying services. The lobbying issues cover the policy related to blockchain. And it is known that Block.one has contributed $30,000 for these activities.
One of the specialists who will act as a lobbyist for Block.one is Scott Mason who previously served as the director of congressional relations for Donald Trump’s administration.
In 2018, the number of lobbies dealing with the issues related to blockchain in Washington D.C. tripled. It reached a mark of 33 projects in the fourth quarter of 2018. Nevertheless, according to experts, blockchain firms still have a lot to do to get supporters in Congress.
