“One year ago, Brendan Blumer and Daniel Larimer announced their intention to launch Voice – social as it should be. They spent the better part of that year developing the blockchain tech needed to handle a social platform at scale.
“I joined Voice earlier this year to build a social and publishing experience on top of that foundation. We had been building towards a big reveal this fall. But, we simply can’t wait any longer. We need to take social back from big tech NOW. So, we did what startups do.
“We pivoted, and decided to open up our platform for readers on July 4. Only registered user will be able publish or engage. Registration will remain by request until August 15, when users can begin to invite their friends.”
