Cryptocurrency can be integrated into Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg studies the positive and negative aspects of cryptocurrencies and how best to use them in Facebook

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is interested in studying cryptocurrency and encryption technologies with the aim of their possible integration into the world's largest social network.

According to him, one of the most interesting issues in the technology world is the rivalry of centralization and decentralization, and many are beginning to engage in new technology, because they believe that they can be that decentralizing will give more power to ordinary people.

However, today, says Mark Zuckerberg, many have lost faith in this promise. With the emergence of a small number of large technology companies and the increasingly frequent use of technology to monitor citizens by the state, people are convinced that technology is more likely to increase centralization.

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 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.

Last year, experts on security and technology from Facebook and Google announced their intention to defend the "digital democracy" of the United States with the help of blockchain technology.
