SoMee.Social secures $50M investment commitment from GEM Digital

  • GEM Digital Limited has committed $50 million to SoMee through a token subscription facility.
  • The blockchain-based social media platform will use the investment to increase the liquidity of native token $SME
  • SoMee users earn token rewards in $SME and Hive blockchain’s $HIVE when they like or post on the network.

SoMee.Social, a blockchain agnostic social media platform powered by HIVE blockchain technology, has secured a $50 million investment commitment from Bahamas-based digital asset investment firm GEM Digital Limited.

Liquidity for native token $SME

An announcement by the platform on Friday said that the investment group’s backing was being provided via a Token Subscription Facility, which SoMee will channel into fueling liquidity for its HIVE-backed native token $SME.

SoMee also plans to leverage the investment to drive further growth for its SoMee.Social network, including incentivising users. In this, SoMee users have access to US dollar-denominated earnings that reflect their rewards in $SME and $HIVE tokens. 

Network users earn these tokens from posting content or “liking” posts by other users. The incentives apply to all users across SoMee and all HIVE-based applications tapped into the social media channel’s posting data.

SoMee, which received startup grants from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM, will officially be available in the Apple and Google app stores by early September. The platform is already accessible via web at SoMee.Social.
