As the real-world pilots we’re already deploying show, the technology we’ve built meets each of these essential criteria head on.

ICC and Perlin will also promote regional initiatives that will help Singapore establish itself as a center of innovation, particularly in the commodities trading.

EOS to Buy $30M Worth Domain For Its Social Network

Earlier, CEO reported that his company will spent about $150M to develop Voice, and looks like "voice.com" purchase for $30M is one of the first steps

The Block.One company, known for developing the EOS blockchain protocol, acquired a domain for its new social network Voice for $ 30 million. This is evidenced by documents published on the website of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Documents were provided by MicroStrategy, an analytical and mobile software provider. It follows the “voice.com” domain, registered in the GoDaddy domain name registry, was transferred to the EOS developer on May 30, 2019. After 2 days, Block.One officially announced preparations for the launch of a social network.

Block.one has made a smart strategic decision in choosing Voice.com to be the internet domain name for its new social media platform. The word ‘voice’ is simple and universally understood. It’s also ubiquitous — as a search term, it returns billions of results on the internet. An ultra-premium domain name like Voice.com can help a company achieve instant brand recognition, ignite a business, and massively accelerate value creation.

Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, MicroStrategy Incorporated. 

The commercial model of MicroStrategy is based, among other things, on the accumulation and sale of such expensive domain names.

According to Block.One, the identification of users and the use of the EOS blockchain in the social network will help to avoid the massive influx of bots, which often affect other members of this niche. Earlier, CEO Block.One Brendan Blamer reported that his company spent about $ 150 million to develop Voice.
