What makes Voice technologically unique?
Voice uses the open source EOSIO protocol and the inherent characteristics of blockchain technology to promote trusted and transparent social interactions. Voice also uses state-of-the-art biometric authentication technology to verify that every account created on the platform belongs to a real, living person—no bots or spam accounts.

What are Voice Tokens, and how are they earned?
Voice Tokens allow community members to make their voices heard. Community members can use their tokens to promote the content they like, rewarding the creator and increasing the visibility of the content at the same time.
Since everyone has the right to be heard, members of the Voice community earn the same amount of Voice Tokens each day. Community members can earn additional tokens by creating content that the community appreciates. For more information on how Voice Tokens are used, visit our Help Center and read the articles about Voice It. Updated on: July 2nd, 2020
How does Voice handle promotion and advertising differently than other social media platforms?
Voice Tokens live on a blockchain ledger, which enables transparency into where they are stored and how they are used. This transparency includes being able to see how tokens are used for promotion and advertising. As a result, promotion and advertising on Voice are more engaging and less manipulative.

What about social media users who are more passive and primarily just scroll through content? Why would they switch over to Voice?
Real users. Real content. Real community. Voice is made up of real people only, so community members can trust that every discussion they encounter on Voice is between real people—not fueled by bots or spam accounts. Plus, Voice protects and respects our member’s data, instead of selling it to the highest bidder like other platforms. Updated on: July 2nd, 2020
How do you promote content with Voice Tokens?
By participating in Voice It, you can reward content creators and promote your profile. If you are the Top Voice, you can spotlight one of your comments at the top of the discussion on a post. Additionally, your name and a link to your profile appear in a banner at the top of the post. For more information, see our Help Center articles on Voice It. Updated on: July 2nd, 2020
What is Voice doing differently from other social platforms that have failed to address fake news, bullying, and manipulation?
Voice confirms that its members are real, living humans. On many social media platforms, anonymity fosters an environment full of bot accounts and fake content. By ensuring that content creators on Voice are real individuals, Voice decreases the prevalence of fake accounts and illegitimate content. Additionally, Voice empowers the community to raise awareness of the content its members want to see and to weed out bullying, manipulation, and fake news. Updated on: July 2nd, 2020
How is content moderated?
Voice believes in freedom of speech and prioritizes that value while operating within the constraints of laws and regulations. Consequently, Voice only removes illegal content. Members of the Voice community can report content they find objectionable, which will cause it to be reviewed by the Voice moderation team for legal compliance. In the future, the community will have the opportunity to review and vote on reported content.
If you see content that you believe is illegal, and you’re not sure what to do about it, please see the Voice Help Center articles on how to report users and content. Updated on: July 2nd, 2020
Will all users of Voice be required to verify their identity?
If you just want to read content on Voice, you don’t need to sign up for an account or verify your identity. If you want to participate in the Voice community by creating content, by commenting, and by liking and voicing content, you must create a Voice account.
When you sign up for Voice, Voice asks for all of the usual things you would expect when signing up for any social platform, such as your name and email address. To ensure that you are a real, living human being, Voice only requires a selfie, which is checked to verify that you are a person and that you do not already have a Voice account. This selfie check helps to eliminate bots and spam accounts, fostering an authentic, transparent, and honest community.

What countries will Voice be available to at initial launch?
Voice is designed to be a global community welcoming different experiences and cultures, and that’s what we’re building for. As we work toward that goal, Voice will initially launch in English, and in as many countries where it is feasible to do so in the timeframe to launch. As we progress and optimize Voice for local languages, standards, and regulatory landscapes, we aim to continue to increase the accessibility for users in different countries and languages around the world. We will continue to update the community on the timelines and any challenges facing the rollout in our Voice Blog, as it is our intention to quickly extend invitations as far and wide as possible.
