Facebook创始人扎克伯格看好加密货币技术发展

2018年新年伊始,加密货币热潮占据了各大新闻媒体头条,各大机构和投资人也对此表示了浓厚的兴趣,而这其中就包括Facebook创始人马克·扎克伯格。

扎克伯格表示,随着少数大型科技公司的兴起,以及政府利用技术来监控舆论,许多人认为网络科技技术推动了权力的集中而不是分散。但是类似加密技术和加密货币的兴起则说明,权力也开始从集中式系统中释放,并逐步回到人们的手中,当然这其中的风险仍然难以预测。而扎克伯格有兴趣深入研究这些技术的积极和消极影响,以保证它们更好地为我们服务。

这番对虚拟货币研究的兴趣可能会让Facebook有机会赶上像阿里巴巴和腾讯这样的中国竞争对手,后者已经通过他们用户群体广泛的移动社交应用程序和手机钱包实现了扎克伯格此前在支付领域的美好愿景。

With the cryptocurrency boom dominating news headlines as we head into 2018 it's no surprise to see Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg flag it up as one of his top challenges for the year ahead.

The Facebook founder is fighting fires on a number of fronts, from the use of the social media network as a forum for hate crime and fake news to a growing sense of discontent among the population at large about the power wielded by large tech companies.

"With the rise of a small number of big tech companies — and governments using technology to watch their citizens — many people now believe technology only centralises power rather than decentralises it," he writes. "There are important counter-trends to this - like encryption and cryptocurrency — that take power from centralised systems and put it back into people’s hands. But they come with the risk of being harder to control. I’m interested to go deeper and study the positive and negative aspects of these technologies, and how best to use them in our services."

The rising public interest in virtual currencies may give Facebook an opportunity to play catch up with Chinese rivals like Alibaba and Tencent, which have overtaken Zuckerberg's brainchild in the payments space through their popular messaging apps and mobile wallets.
