Block.one's Social Media App Voice Poaches Forbes Exec as CEO

Voice, the social media app developed by Block.one, has recruited Forbes’ global chief digital officer Salah Zalatimo as CEO. Zalatimo is slated to start Jan. 20, according to a blog post released today.


The firm behind the EOS blockchain also said that Voice is expected to launch a public beta on February 14, 2020. Block.one first unveiled its social media app in June 2019 with much fanfare. At the time, the firm's CEO Brendan Blumer told The Block that it had poured $150 million into the project, including a $30 million purchase of the platform's domain name.


Zalatimo joined Forbes in 2015 after the media giant acquired his virtual photo-sharing startup, Camerama. Overseeing Forbes’ Digital Group since Jan. 2019, he was responsible for the creation of the company’s AI-enabled publishing platform, Bertie, which led to the doubling of Forbes’ audience size to over 110 million per month, according to Block.one’s press release.
