Huobi listis $TOMI, the token powering tomi’s alternative internet

By now, it has become crystal clear that the World Wide Web is not immune to censorship, and government and corporate surveillance that take place online are passionately discussed in both traditional and alternative media. Going off the grid has become practically impossible for the users as the mainstream internet has become an integral part of our lives, and there isn’t really a feasible alternative to it.

With new regulations set to control online speech brewing in the U.S., some users might want to flock to the uncensored alternatives to the World Wide Web, often collectively known as the dark web. Those networks, however, also end up fostering terror, violence and other illicit activities often outweighing the moral good of free speech.

tomi, an anonymous project led by eight big names in crypto, tackles that challenge with its alternative internet, governed by its community-driven DAO. The team recently won the third Huobi PrimeVote contest by a wide margin thanks to community support and enthusiasm from Huobi voters who are excited about tomi’s alternative internet network that prevents surveillance while offering a governance mechanism to strike down violence.

Huobi, the world’s sixth-largest crypto exchange by trading volume, regularly holds Vote-to-List events to empower its community with listing rights and to highlight promising projects in the crypto realm. Previous winners of the PrimeVote contest – the Bull BTC Club and Argentine Football Association Fan Token – weren’t nearly as supported by the voters as $TOMI. tomi’s native token broke the record for biggest margin of victory in the competition at 17,963,115 votes, beating out the second-place JOT token’s 3,700,7001 and 23 other projects. As the token with the most votes, TOMI lists on Huobi and becomes available to hundreds of thousands of users on the crypto exchange daily.

Within tomiNET, tomi’s alternative internet, users will leverage the TOMI tokens, now available on Huobi, and Pioneer NFTs to vote on network governance, including shutting down pages that violate the network’s “blacklist” community guidelines: terror, child sexual exploitation imagery, and other forms of violence.

The tomi team holds weight equal to average users in voting about the community guidelines and censorship, though it will hold enough tokens to have stronger influence over the technological direction of the project in the initial stages.

tomiNET is structured in a way that creates a path for the citizens of the new web to out-vote the core developers and technological leadership within three years. That’s intentional on the part of tomi, which doesn’t seek the kind of power held by the leaders of projects such as Ethereum or Cosmos.
