Mark Zuckerberg is ‘studying’ cryptocurrency, which could help Facebook catch Asian rivals

 show chapters 

 Mark Zuckerberg is studying up on cryptocurrency 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg expressed his interest in crypto currency and its potential uses in his 2018 mission statement, issued on Thursday. 

The statement was all about how Zuckerberg is taking on a new personal challenge for 2018: fixing Facebook. (Last year’s challenge was visiting all the states he’d never been to and meeting people there.) 

Zuckerberg mentioned cryptocurrency only in passing as an example of technology that decentralizes power. But the concept could also help Facebook catch up to Asian messaging rivals when it comes to mobile payments. 

In China, it is so easy to make purchases with WeChat Pay and AliPay that cash is becoming obsolete. In Chinese cities, beggars seek mobile payments to their accounts using QR codes rather than spare change. 

Combined, Alibaba and WeChat hold an estimated 92 percent of the marketshare for mobile wallets in China, which has an estimated 500 million mobile payment users. The rest of the world has some 556 million mobile money accounts, according to research from finance industry consortium CGAP. 

 Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive officer and founder of Facebook Inc., attends the fourth day of the annual Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference, July 14, 2017 in Sun Valley, Idaho. 

By contrast, Facebook’s payment features haven’t really taken off. 

Through Facebook payments, users can link their Messenger account to a debit card, and pay friends with a quick message, or make an e-commerce purchase via Messenger and Marketplace on Facebook. 

Facebook has already signaled at past F8 developer conferences that it will expand its payments business conservatively, to include bill payment and investing options, which those WeChat Pay and Alipay have offered for years.

According to Mark Højgaard, CEO and co-founder of Coinify, a tech firm helping businesses accept payments via crypto, “It definitely makes sense for Facebook users globally to send some kind of token to each other. This could be currency or something else like points that you can redeem them for things within the Facebook ecosystem, like premium content.” 

Zuckerberg: Fixing Facebook is 2018 personal challenge

The Chinese government has, for the time being, banned ICO’s and forced domestic crypto currency exchanges to close shop. So Facebook could get an early edge on its overseas competitors by moving fast to build a crypto wallet or issue a possible Facebook coin.

With the rise of a small number of big tech companies — and governments using technology to watch their citizens — many people now believe technology only centralizes power rather than decentralizes it.

There are important counter-trends to this –like encryption and cryptocurrency — that take power from centralized systems and put it back into people’s hands. But they come with the risk of being harder to control. I’m interested to go deeper and study the positive and negative aspects of these technologies, and how best to use them in our services.

The Big 3: How Blockchain Will Impact Society

Bill Carmody, CEO of Trepoint, in his Inc.com article reduced the blockchain news flurry into three fundamental shifts society will face with its continued adoption. 

1. No more intermediaries

Many of the international economy’s most valuable industries are stagnated by middlemen, who dictate costs, timing, and regulation. Think big, unsexy sectors of the global supply chain that are lagging years behind technological standards.

The advertising industry, for example, is one of the largest markets in the world, making it an ideal candidate for blockchain technology. In terms of transparency between buyers and sellers, blockchain technology can not only help tackle the inaccurate valuation of inventory, but it can also give both parties a clear understanding of the pricing and fees of goods and services. Blockchain can help ensure that advertisers avoid fraudulent traffic, provide better confidentiality for all participants, and minimize middleman involvement. Applying blockchain technology to advertising is the first step in disrupting this multi-billion industry in a way that benefits both publishers and advertisers alike. For an extremely well written white paper on this topic by the company making this happen, check out the Blockchain Programmatic Corporation

With blockchain, we can substitute expensive, error-prone intermediary parties for algorithms that never make mistakes and run without human intervention. The result is a cleaner marketplace that operates more efficiently than conventional models of organization.

Centralized systems, by nature, are often subject to bias and unfairness. There is massive risk involved when leaving all of the network’s data in one group’s hands. Decentralized networks, however, distribute and mitigate the risk, such that no party can make alterations to the truth. 

Another massive benefit is that we will no longer have to worry about authenticating trust and verifying access to important information. Currently, enterprises hold massive risk by storing their information in a central location.

If even one employee leaks out information, all of their data can be compromised. Smart contracts, built on top of an Ethereum (or a substitute’s) blockchain, can be developed to automatically confirm points of access within a network, therein reducing the need for individual authentication currently performed by manual intermediaries.

2. Security

 Blockchain marketplaces are inherently more secure than conventional alternatives. The nature of the public ledger is that all of the data is encrypted and protected, such that no single party has the power to manipulate any information. Startups can leverage this innate power of blockchain to secure millions of data points across a system.

For instance, look at the growing world of digital gaming. Currently, there are no safe environments for gamers to conduct transactions (buying, selling, trading) on the millions of digital collectibles earned each and every year.

As a result, consumers have been relying on fraudulent forums, acting as standing marketplaces to provide for the huge demand. These makeshift platforms were built for speed, not security, and are now paying the consequences, as they are home to cyber-attacking and unsafe practices.

Blockchain startup, Gameflip (an incumbent digital goods marketplace), is launching their upcoming coin offering of FLIP, a crypto-token, made to scale the peer-level buying, selling, and trading of digital goods for the video game industry.

They are able to achieve what so many other players have failed to do: provide a secure and standardized ecosystem for gamers to conduct transactions, all powered by the blockchain. This is one of many scenarios where the blockchain solution is exactly what was needed for all stakeholders to win out.

3. Financial tools and digital assets

The volatility of cryptocurrencies, as we know them today, are perhaps the final blocker preventing principal investors from diving in on this new age economy. It is hard to justify the extreme risk involved with investing in these currencies when operating in a largely unregulated market. Rampant scamming, as well as uneducated market players, make the environment challenging to work in.

Inevitably, we will solve for the turbulent environment with alternative investment vehicles.

Jibrel, another blockchain startup, is holding a token sale with hopes to give investors a stable, predictable investing platform. They are issuing compliant tokens, backed by the valuation of real world assets, to further collateralize their digital coins. Effectively, they are commoditizing and securitizing many digital assets such that they follow “real-world rules and regulations, deployed directly onto the Ethereum blockchain.”

This is one massive step forward in developing a more standardized environment around the digital economy. Companies like SparkleCoin are driving this expansion and adoption, by developing architectures that enable everyday consumers to spend cryptocurrencies at scale. They are providing access to major online stores, like Target, Walmart, Overstock, and Amazon, to provide a stable and secure outlet for real world, crypto transactions.

This is all part of a massive movement among the blockchain community, working to make the technology ubiquitous across industries and sectors.

Cats are taking over the blockchain

CryptoKitties is the newest craze in cryptocurrency. So many people are buying, selling, and breeding CryptoKitties that the Ethereum blockchain is struggling to keep up with all the activity.

The average cat is trading for $100 in ether and users have spent over $3M total on breeding, buying and selling the in-game items (up from $1M yesterday).

Two days ago, a true believer of cat-based technologies bought the genesis cat (the first cat) for 250 ETH, which is over $100,000. Today, CryptoKitties is the most active smart contract on the Ethereum network, accounting for over 16% of all Ethereum transactions.

CryptoKitties launched on Product Hunt six days ago, where maker Mack Flavelle explained the idea behind it:

“Blockchain technology could be the biggest revolution since the internet, but the majority of projects in this space are unapproachable to muggles. That’s something we wanted to change with CryptoKitties. We figured- if you want to speak to regular people speak in regular language. And cats are the regular language of the internet.”

 And went on to explain the dynamics of CryptoKitty:

“In CryptoKitties, users collect and breed digital cats. Through breeding, unique cattributes can be unlocked. Each CryptoKitty has a 256-bit genome that dictates its appearance and hidden traits, with 4-billion possible combinations. And we have Fancy Cats – kitties with custom art, including a little treat for Product Hunt fans.”

Right now the best way to try out CryptoKitties is by downloading MetaMask, a chrome extension that makes it easy to interact with the Ethereum blockchain directly from your browser. You’re also going to need a little Ether, which you can buy from exchanges like Coinbase.

By leveraging the power of cats on the internet, CryptoKitties is introducing the public to cryptocurrencies and blockchain based technologies. If you want to learn a bit more about how the game mechanics work you can check out Fitz Tepper’s excellent post on TechCrunch.

Blockchain will replace passwords

Ask any security expert how about the biggest gap in security and he or she will tell you that it’s the users. Users have to get into an application or database to use it, but that leaves us all vulnerable to any one person who leaves their machine or doesn’t secure their password.

Passwords may be a thing of the past once blockchain security becomes the norm for our individual records.

Startups making us more secure with blockchain

Here are some new companies to watch, applications and crypto replacing passwords.

Evernym, a startup that’s developing a blockchain network specifically for managing digital identities.

uPort, identity registration for voging and other uses.

How a mobile app with blockchain security works

Users can register their identities on uPort’s mobile app to create a globally unique public address linked to an Generally speaking, it is a written or spoken agreement, especially one concerning employment, sales, or tenancy that is intended to be enforceable by law. In Ethereum, a “contract” is an account which contains, and is controlled by, EVM code. Contracts cannot be controlled by private keys directly; unless built into the EVM code, a contract has no owner once released.

Once the code is registered, a QR scan allows the user to sign into the Zug ID web portal:

After authentication via the portal, personal data is entered, including a previously issued Zug ID number:

To ensure fraud is avoided, the final step of registration must be done in person and with previously issued ID documents at the Zug records office.

uPort said that digital citizenship helps to “enable more trust between citizens and government agencies, but it also opens up new and significant opportunities for improved digital interactions between people and governments.”

Zug isn’t the only place to turn to uPort for identity provenance. The Brazilian Ministry of Planning, Budget, and Management, in conjunction with Microsoft and ConsenSys, have also worked with the Ethereum blockchain company pursuant to testing ID and document verification, as announced in August 2017.
