In what seems to be a screenshot of a message by the block.one CEO, Brendan Blumer says that he expects top social media influencers to be able to generate up to $100 million in revenue from the new social networking platform from EOS, Voice.
Blumer indicates in the message that some of the top influencers are capable of bringing 50 million followers to the new social media platform which could, in turn, make them millions of dollars.
Extracting such social influencers to Voice is one of the main priorities for the project.
In the messages, Blumer says:
“Think of it this way.. if someone with 100m followers switched over to voice and 50m follow, we expect they could make 50-100m just for switching… that’s more than the net worth than many of those influencers.”
“Trust me, we’re thinking deeply on the same level you are [we] are saving our marketing for when we’re ready to bring them on.”
The People’s Voice
Block.one has explained in a recent press release that Voice is a platform that will treasure good content, saying:
“Voice is a more transparent social media platform for the world, where the value of good content gets circulated right back into sustaining the community, not corporate bottom lines.”
All content posted to Voice will be publicly recorded on the blockchain. The VOICE token will be utilised to reward content creators and let them promote their content. Because the internet is full of nasty people who only want to cause harm/annoyance to others, in order to keep spam to a minimum, all users will be subject to an identity check requiring a government-provided ID. However, users won’t be able to mine or buy the token directly but instead receive a daily airdrop of VOICE tokens that can be used to promote their content.
As the CTO of Block.one Dan Larimer explains:
“We believe everyone deserves a voice. This is why the voice token has the fairest distribution in the world.”
EOS Social Networks
Former co-founder of Everipedia, Mahbod Moghadam has highlighted that EOS has a social network with traction:
“EOS already has a social network with traction–it is called Everipedia. Our team is the most talented and we are building additional dapps on the IQ token as well. Voice should be on the IQ token and Sam Kazemian should be in charge of building it. He’s the next Mark Zuckerberg.”
