Facebook (FB) founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg remains a popular figure on the social media platform. He posts regularly about a variety of activities, including his work with the philanthropic Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative and his ongoing work on the Facebook platform. A recent post drew unusual levels of attention, though, and it has to do with the company’s potential involvement in the hottest trend: cryptocurrencies.
Zuckerberg previously explained via a Facebook post that he aims to learn something new each year, and a post for the new year explained that his challenge for 2018 would focus on exploring how technology can “give people the power,” according to Futurism. Some are interpreting his post as a suggestion that Facebook may add a cryptocurrency service.
“One of the most interesting questions in technology right now is about centralization vs. decentralization,” he wrote. “A lot of us got into technology because we believe it can be a decentralizing force that puts more power in people’s hands.”
