Founder of Facebook social network Mark Zuckerberg posted his plans for 2018 where he mentioned a possible use of cryptocurrency in Facebook services.
“For example, one of the most interesting questions in technology right now is about centralization vs decentralization. A lot of us got into technology because we believe it can be a decentralizing force that puts more power in people’s hands. (The first four words of Facebook’s mission have always been “give people the power”.) Back in the 1990s and 2000s, most people believed technology would be a decentralizing force.But today, many people have lost faith in that promise…
…There are important counter-trends to this — like encryption and cryptocurrency — that take power from centralized systems and put it back into people’s hands. But they (their use) come with the risk of being harder to control”, — said Mark.
Zuckerberg also shared his achievements of 2017. According to Facebook founder, last year he visited all states of the USA, read 25 books, turned his home into a smart house using artificial intelligence, learnt Mandarin Chinese.
Mark Zuckerberg entered the Forbes list of world’s top billionaires with highest tempo of increasing their fortune in 2017.
