Block.one is a global software company specializing in high performance blockchain software. In 2018, it published EOSIO, an open-source protocol, the rival of Ethereum and TRON blockchain. Block.one’s social platform Voice aims to redefine social media by cultivating creation, sharing, discovery and promotion of content by real users.
Salah Zalatimo joined Forbes in 2015. Over the past five years, Salah has led a successful digital transformation yielding a completely re-engineered product organization which rebuilt the Forbes platform from the ground up.
“Salah is a rare combination of product and media talent enriched by an entrepreneurial past. His experience in creating state-of-the-art content monetization and publishing tools makes him uniquely qualified to lead Voice,” said Brendan Blumer, Block.one CEO. “As users enter an era of being rewarded for their contributions to social networks, we believe it’s also important to focus on equipping creators with tools used by the world’s most successful journalists.”
“Blockchain is becoming a clear driver of digital media product innovation, and Voice’s tokenized design presents a fundamentally better way of empowering content creators and participants; a new generation of decentralized media is on the horizon. I am delighted to be a part of this effort,” said Salah.
Voice is expected to launch a public beta on February 14, 2020.
