Facebook可能也要发行加密货币了

据Cheddar近日报道,社交媒体巨头Facebook可能正在考虑推出自己的加密货币,并借此协助推动各类服务支付。

此外该媒体还透露,这项计划可能由Facebook Messenger新晋负责人David Marcus领衔。

目前并未有更多有关该计划的细节内容,但是Cheddar方面表示,整个计划可能几年之后才会实施。鉴于区块链技术仍处于起步阶段,Facebook不大可能会在有能力处理大规模交易之前就采取和依靠分散式解决方案。

其实,早在今年1月,Facebook首席执行官Mark Zuckerberg曾表示该公司愿意在新一年中积极进行区块链测试。而此后该公司的动向也证实了Zuckerberg此前的承诺。比如Facebook已经建立了一个新的研发分部,专门致力于探索在其产品中实施区块链解决方案。

It appears that social media giant Facebook might be contemplating rolling out its own cryptocurrency, reports suggest.

The company is purportedly looking into using cryptocurrency to facilitate payments across its various services, according to a report from Cheddar.

The publication further suggests the efforts will be led by David Marcus, who was heading the Facebook Messenger unit until recently.

There are not many details as of yet, but Cheddar indicates that plans could take years to implement. Given that blockchain technologies are still in their infancy, it is unlikely Facebook will be willing to rely on decentralized solutions until they can handle large transaction volumes – an issue the entire blockchain industry is dealing with.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had previously suggested that the company is open to experimenting with blockchain in a new-years-resolution post in January.

“[M]any people now believe technology only centralizes power rather than decentralizes [sic] it,” Zuckerberg said. “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.”

Indeed, reports from earlier this week suggested that Facebook has established a new research and development branch specifically devoted to exploring implementing blockchain-powered solutions in its products.
