After nearly four unbelievably rewarding years leading Messenger, I have decided it was time for me to take on a new challenge. I’m setting up a small group to explore how to best leverage Blockchain across Facebook, starting from scratch.

When I joined Messenger, under 300 million people were using it every month, since then we’ve added well over 1 billion people. We’ve crafted many new experiences from video chat to P2P payments, a capable camera and new features like games. We opened the platform and now over 200,000 developers are creating experiences and over 8 billion messages are sent between people and businesses every month. Looking forward, I’m excited about Messenger’s upcoming redesign I’ve shared an early look at this year’s F8. I think you’re going to love it!

He is now moving to create a small group, he says, to explore how best to use a blockchain on Facebook, from the moment of his arrest.

Blockchain (distributed information block) is a distributed decentralized database into which I can view each. It consists of inserted data and a block that confirms them. The data is also with the help of so-called hashing algorithms, blocks generate so-called tai. That is, companies or people who verify the entered data (transactions) and thus create put blocks (records). Thanks to the technology, the origin and process of data handling is easily traceable.
