Technology moguls are by far the most frequent leaders to speak about the value of blockchain, Bitcoin and the overall cryptocurrency market. While central banks and governments are fighting against the power and revolution the digital currencies have created, technology leaders seem to understand and embrace the currency of the “future” constantly.
Facebook’s founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has just recently expressed his positive opinion on cryptocurrencies and their use in society. In his words, this new form of technology can shape the business world of tomorrow, while also solving worldwide problems.
Zuckerberg commented on the value of cryptocurrencies and the ability of companies to maintain an edge over competitors by leveraging the opportunities created by blockchain and cryptos.
One of his most vivid comments was about his “New Year’s resolution” – to “fix Facebook”. By studying the cryptocurrencies, Zuckerberg is on his way to make Facebook a better company.
“I’m looking forward to bringing groups of experts together to discuss and help work through these topics.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.”
In addition to these positive comments that Zuckerberg made, he also pointed out the potentiality of cryptos to fight fake news on the internet. So, in a nutshell, Facebook may be on its way to revolutionize the social space as we currently know it.
