Facebook jumps into crypto world!

Discussion in 'Social Networks' started by Konnock, Jan 2, 2019.

    According to the latest news Facebook launches its own cryptocurrency soon. It seems like they decided to earn all the money in the world instead of becoming a safe social network for simple people to connect with friends.
    What are your thoughts on that point - is it the right direction or you will never use it as its privacy needs to be improved at first?

    This is a good thing, help to accept concurrency worldwide. But on the other hand Facebook is worst social media coz of massing spying, no privacy there,

    That's exactly why I'm worrying about it. Crypto is okay, I agree, but I will never use it through Facebook as they have no security at all.
    I even believe more in crypto messengers which are not so popular now than in that thing.

    They have been threatening to do this for a long time. I would only invest small amount for testing purposes only.

    How can they do something like that while their social network is dying from spam, ads and hacking attacks?
    I would never believe any commercial product made by facebook developers. They're thinking only about money now.

    I don't think this is a good news, coz Facebook is famous for data leaks and working with secret services like FBI and CIA, this cryptocurrency will be not crypto at all, other ways how special services will track and influence on transactions?
