On January 8th, 2018, the Express published an article covering Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s recent comments on cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. While it remains to be seen what it might look like for Facebook to embrace decentralized technologies, we agree with Zuckerberg that cryptocurrencies and blockchain will play a huge role in future businesses.
Facebook’s CEO isn’t the only Silicon Valley bigwig to jump on the crypto bandwagon. Twitter and Square CEO, Jack Dorsey, also recently announced the rollout of Bitcoin support in Square’s app. At CoinMetro, we believe the time for mainstream adoption is just getting started, and as major players from established industries and companies begin to set their sights on crypto, we think Zuckerberg is right to call attention to the potential for blockchain tech to solve real world problems.
