    Block.one: With $150 million Voice can shout down Facebook

    After incubating Voice for nine months, Block.one injected $150 million into the social news platform that’s aiming to tackle the rise of fake news

    Now independently operated, Voice is being billed as a “social news platform that rewards users and content creators,” and has the rather ambitious goal of tackling deficiencies in the media industry—namely the proliferation of fake news and concerns over data ownership.

    Steamed Steem supporters strike Sun

    Justin Sun’s ‘hostile takeover’ of the Steem blogging site backfired, with many Steemers and developers planning to migrate to Hive, a hard fork that could cost Tron its investment

    On March 17, a group of Steem community members and developers announced that Hive, a hard fork of the Steem blockchain, will take place on March 20. All STEEM token holders will receive an identical amount of Hive tokens—excluding the roughly 20% of outstanding STEEM Tron CEO Justin Sun acquired when he bought Steemit, the developer of the Steem project.
