At the B1JUNE event on June 1st, Block.one (hereinafter referred to as b1) officially introduced the social product Voice to the community, which triggered a hot discussion in the community.
BB and BM recently added a lot of questions about Voice in Telegram and Twitter. We will organize the content as follows.
When BB officially introduced Voice at the press conference: “Today's social platforms benefit from leveraging their users. The content, personal information, interests, and concerns we create are the most valuable information on social platforms. The platform uses these The information is profitable, not the user itself. The design of the existing social products determines that these platforms need to be profitable in this way, and the users will receive push information filled with advertisements. The emergence of Voice is to change the status quo."
Voice wants to be a true social platform for users to create, share, discover and disseminate content, rejecting robots or fake accounts. Through a self-contained content system, users can directly benefit from their own ideas and platform interaction.
According to our understanding, it should be "VOICE refuses to promote advertising, but if you are willing to give promotional expenses to the users who actually read, I think users are willing to accept."
We are looking forward to seeing the day when VOICE is officially released!
Until then, you can apply for VOICE's internal test qualifications, and maybe there will be some gains.
According to BM, VOICE will adopt the most equitable distribution. At the beginning, it will give its registered users, so, Let’s go!
Voice test application steps:
1. Open voice.com
2. Fill in your personal information truthfully (may involve kyc in the future)
3. Waiting for the official invitation to test
Voice.com Chinese users can access normally, but the verification method will fail and need to be scientific.
The first time we applied for the internal test, I found it in the trash on June 8!
“Thank you for applying for the beta version of VOICE!”
Before the VOICE test version goes online, we can only do this. I want to share with you some BM responses to VOICE and some personal opinions about VOICE, for reference only.
1. When is Voice released?
BM: The Voice contract can be deployed in EOSIO version 1.8 and some hard forks (code upgrades). The web version of Voice will be the first to be released, then the App version. Unregistered visitors can also browse the content on Voice.
Interpretation: At present, most nodes are installed with versions 1.6.2 - 1.7.2. Therefore, it is necessary to wait until the system contract is updated to version 1.8. It is possible for Voice to actually be available on the EOS main network. It should be noted that this upgrade to 1.8 will be a hard fork upgrade, that is, an irreversible upgrade, when the use of the wallet may be affected.
2. Why use a new VOICE Token instead of EOS?
BM: We are looking for a way to make a sound (whether EOS or Voice) using any Token;
Interpretation: For the new Token, the community is very sensitive. Some people even distort it into BM and give up EOS to do new projects. BM has to pay for the money and use EOS to raise funds for the voice token. But this is not the case. We hope that more EOS holders can think independently about the strengths and weaknesses of this matter.
EOS is a public chain. For the public chain, large-scale commercial and user prosperity is the basis for the development of the public chain. So far, there has not been a social software on the blockchain that allows the holders to use it. Our communication is more dependent on the traditional social platform. I am not criticizing the current social products, but think that there are more A good platform for economic design will have a longer life cycle. The concept of UBI (Basic Income for All) is added to the Voice token. We will continue to talk about this topic later.
I think that no one, no organization is better than B1 to release products like Voice.
The combination of blockchain and physical application is not as easy as imagined, so the blockchain may be the first to be applied to finance, which is the common view of many big names. So what about the combination of blockchain and socialization? It is meaningless to use blockchain technology to anonymize accounts and decentralize storage. The huge social information is mixed with too much useless information to ensure that their unmodifiable and permanent storage does not have much value. But there is no denying that users will occasionally have anonymized needs, and there may be better solutions to solve this problem or create a new balance.
If VOICE really can change the social as it says, I am looking forward to its release.
3. What innovations does Voice have to work with?
(1) Data uplink: User's behavior data on Voice is on the blockchain/content addressable storage (possibly using IPFS storage, under study), and the content on Voice will be chained like Steemit. VOICE token can be transferred in a Voice account;
(2) KYC solution: Voice has a variety of authentication schemes, including KYC and Unique ID (unique) schemes to avoid robot accounts. Even EOS can use Unique ID to explore further decentralized governance;
(3) Game theory behind Voice: When users find a good content, they can choose to speak for them. As long as you are not the last vocalist, you will get a VOICE token; if you are the last vocalist, your content will be easier to see and more likely to be liked. In addition, Voice will be operated by Block.one, without 1co but can transfer transactions. In addition, Voice has a variety of ways to implement rewards and punishments for users, while maintaining control of the platform, B1 mentioned a white paper (but not yet found on the official website);
(4) Return to user value: Voice token is designed based on the concept of decentralized attention economy, aiming to create a completely different way from traditional advertising. Traditional advertising always directs the user's attention to the highest bidder, while Voice is fairly distributed to all users and can be traded;
(5) VOICE token is UBI: Users can receive it every day;
4. Does Voice conflict with national regulations? What are the limitations of development?
Some members have identified the regulatory instructions for Voice and asked whether the question is true: “Voice Token may not be allowed to be used in the United States or other cities because the token regulatory policies in these places are not clear”.
BB responded: “We are working hard to overcome these obstacles, but you all know that it takes time, but we are optimistic about the future. We will make every American use Voice and work hard for it. Of course, for the whole community The benefits of B1's cooperation with US regulators are important, but I believe that as regulators deepen their understanding of EOS technology and its applications, it will certainly move in the expected direction!"
Some members also asked: China has a large EOS community and market, but local regulations may limit its use.
BM Response: This is an option for everyone, supporting all;
In addition, some members questioned KYC in the telegraph group: KYC is OK, but it is silly to disclose your identity information on the blockchain.
Respond to this BM: When you need to post a message to the public, it gives you the way to authenticate. As a solution, KYC does not need to solve all the problems (BM should mean that everyone needs different things, some need to send information and earn income, and some people pay more attention to privacy, so it is difficult to adjust, using Voice is also necessary Have some choices). 99% of people think they can keep their privacy online, but they are actually illusions. The identity certificate meets the requirements of the government. If you want to achieve anonymity simply by changing the language, address, etc., it is self-deception. As of press time, BM added that the name of the person and the country information will be linked, which is the application compliance requirement, but your ID information will not be displayed on the chain. In addition, all of the user's KYC data can only be seen by B1, but due to regulatory issues, other dApps still need to be authenticated again when they have received Voice KYC-certified users.
Of course, this matter does not necessarily have no room for change, because according to the latest telegram of BM:
My and BB are considering an anonymous solution and will continue to maintain the integrity and accountability of Voice. We have some ideas right now, and if it doesn't break the value proposition of Voice, it will be shared with you later.
B1 has a strong sense of risk control, in order to meet the national policies as much as possible, the KYC method is adopted, which can also prevent the wool from being maximized.
However, it is worth noting that China and the United States are two important communities of EOS. Whether Voice can solve the KYC problems and usage problems in China and the United States greatly determines how far Voice can go. In addition, how to make Chinese users use it quickly (interface language) is also a question that must be considered by Voice. Maybe there will be different language communities in the Voice community. Language barriers are still a gap between citizens of different countries.
5. How to distribute VOICE token?
According to BB's tweet, Voice will demonstrate the possibility of EOS, VOICE token can not be obtained through purchase or mining, once tradable, will be fairly distributed to authenticated users. The BM mentioned in the telegraph group that VOICE tokens will not be stolen.
6. Can I register for a business account?
a. Enterprise institutional project parties, or some legal entities, can be registered and certified;
b. Companies can spend money on VOICE Tokens and broadcast them, but they don't participate in the distribution or voting of daily tokens (likes);
c. The company number will not receive the UBI subsidy, and the praise will not increase the income. But the same voice needs to consume VOICE tokens.
Finally, we must remind users to pay attention to asset security. Just after the press conference is over, there is a fake BM. The telegram group claims that B1 will air the Voice token to all EOS holders (it is assumed that B1 will only send Voice to KYC users). Therefore, airdrops on the whole network are definitely not possible.) Obviously, Voice, as the upcoming star product of B1, has received wide attention from the community. In this regard, we remind you not to enter your own private key on any uncertain website, check the transaction description in detail when launching the transaction, in case the account assets are stolen.
