  1. The announcement was met with some [skepticism](https://twitter.com/DanDarkPill/status/1366952138513870853?s=20) in the community due to Larimer’s perceived history of abandoning projects. Larimer was the co-founder of Steemit, a blockchain-based social media platform popular during 2017, which he left in favor of Block.one, the company behind EOSIO, a blockchain framework underpinning both EOS and Voice, [another social media platform](https://cointelegraph.com/news/eosio-based-social-media-platform-voice-briefly-goes-live-ahead-of-schedule).

    After Larimer [left his post at Block.one](https://cointelegraph.com/news/daniel-larimer-cto-of-eosio-developers-block-one-resigns) in January, many interpreted it as a sign that he was going to build something else, which appears to have been the correct intuition. It is interesting to note that the projects Larimer left did not fare too well afterwards, with Steemit being acquired by Tron in a [rocky and controversial deal](https://cointelegraph.com/magazine/2020/06/04/steemit-andrew-levine-tron-acquisition), while EOS is currently [struggling against its newer competitors](https://cointelegraph.com/news/eos-defi-project-sets-up-shop-on-polkadot) in terms of adoption.

    Never gonna buy His Projects again….

  2. tldr; Daniel Larimer, the former CTO of Block.one and co-founder of Steemit and Voice, has revealed his next project, Clarion. The project is meant to become a mobile-first decentralized social media platform. Clarion will be developed as a “progressive web application” based on WebAssembly.
