I for one can’t wait for Zucc Buccs to become the world currency.
In all seriousness, I’m interested in how Facebook is actually using blockchains. I can’t really see any benefit over a central DB from their point of view, except for marketing maybe.
Kind of sucks if Facebook wins against real crypto in the race to a really good payment system (e.g. arbitraging the UX of WeChat pay).
I think they will use it, as alluded to in the article, in order to change the way data ownership will work in the digital economy. Would put themselves in the driving seat both in innovation and publicity terms.
